Dahab Paradise

Dahab, Egypt

A cute hotel bang on the water with great prices, a happy vibe and some of the best diving in the Red Sea on your doorstep

Dahab Paradise offers what a lot of people want: an easy style, a cool pool, guaranteed sun and excellent value for money. It’s a friendly place which stands 10 paces from the sea with views across the Gulf of Aqaba to the mountains of Saudi Arabia. It’s slightly out of town, which keeps it quiet, and, there’s a great little restaurant and bar where you can stop for a pizza or a beer. Camels lope past on the small beach across the road several times a day. The hotel comes with a dive school attached, so arrange a trip to Blue Hole or pick up some flippers and head out to snorkel in the big, blue sea.

Rooms come over 2 floors and all have terraces or balconies. They’re fairly simple, but have everything you need: comfy beds, warm colours, air-conditioning, compact shower rooms. Back downstairs a circular pool sits in the middle of a well-tended lawn. You’ll find sun loungers, deck chairs and pool towels piled high. It’s a quietly sociable place with evening barbecues and music nights - Bedouin laments in front of the fire one evening, an acoustic Bob Dylan session the next. The hotel is floodlit at night and the palm trees are wrapped in fairy lights at Christmas.

Highs

  • The price: it’s hard to fault what you get for the money
  • The attitude: this is a very friendly place with owners who care and excellent service
  • The vibe: it’s relaxed, the sun shines, the pool shimmers, the staff smile, and we really enjoyed the snorkelling during our 2013 revisit
  • The bar: a good spot for lunch and supper, with a beer to keep you cool
  • Dahab itself: for the time being, at least, it retains the laid-back charm which Sharm so conspicuously lacks

Lows

  • Strong winds can blow in off the sea, but they put up wind breaks to protect you from it
  • You're advised not to swim or snorkel from the beach across the road unless conditions are calm; the hotel can advise alternative sites and arrange transport
  • Bathrooms can occasionally smell of drains, but this fades, and the shower cubicles are small, so prepare to practice your silkiest moves
  • Dahab town has quite a high population of stray cats, some are quite confident so you may have company during meals out!
