The Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort is centrally located in Dahab - only a few minutes' walk to the sea and the "main promenade" of Dahab with countless restaurants, shops and diving schools. In the resort itself you will not hear any noise from the activities outside. The area of the Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort is very quiet and has a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

We were happy to welcome the New Year 2021 in this beautiful place. Here in Dahab I had the feeling - our world went back to normal again. No corona restrictions, no masks, no panic. A perfect place to be in a time where normality is seldom found.

All suites on the first floor have a special architectural bonus - a beautiful dome in the sitting area. This kind of construction is typical for Egypt, the room cools down naturally this way. The living room itself also appears more spacious and airy because of the high ceiling. In the evening, when the dome is illuminated, the suite looks even more beautiful.

The resort has an excellent restaurant I mentioned before, a massage salon and even a diving school, run by a German family.

Photo: The evening lighting in the resort was subtle and tasteful. A rare case especially at Christmas time, when other hotels decorate everything with glowing plastic Santa Clauses. I was very happy not to have any of the tasteless Christmas decorations and twinkling lights in front of my eyes.
One of the most important priorities of the hotel management is providing a natural and sustainable living. The hotel owner Mr. Gabaly and his team are working on an environmental project - they want to make Dahab a plastic free place! They are organizing workshops and other educational classes for the population to explain how plastics harm the environment, the ocean and also us humans. Before the corona pandemic, they had a huge success with the project - supermarkets in Dahab stopped distributing plastic bags. With Corona, tons of new plastic came into our lives. Also in Dahab. But Mr. Gabaly and his team continue working even when they have to start from the beginning again!
We had a great week in Sheikh Ali Dahab Resort and are very thankful to the lovely team for the hospitality and the time together! We loved this place and enjoyed every moment there!
