    Coral Coast Hotel is situated a short stroll away from Dahab Bay in a stunning location where the Sinai Mountains seem to kiss the Red Sea. If you are looking for somewhere with a relaxed and friendly setting with delicious food and great service, Coral Coast will take you there.

    You can watch the lazy, wind-ruffled waves lap the shore from any of the sea-view rooms or from the Arisha restaurant on the beach, where snacks and drinks are served. On a clear day, and frankly, in Dahab, it's seldom anything but, you can see Saudi Arabia just across the Red Sea.

    At Coral Coast all rooms are en-suite with a balcony or terrace, with full control air conditioning and the superior rooms boast unrivalled Red Sea views across the Gulf of Aqaba. The hotel hosts a relaxed, comfortable feel and among other facilities you will find the swimming pool where you can sit back, relax, have a drink and enjoy the best views in Dahab. Free wireless internet is available throughout. Rooms are cleaned and serviced daily and a duty manager is at hand to help you with any requirements.

    On your day off you can visit the famous Mount Moses and/or visit St Katherine's Monastery. You can also go snorkeling at Ras Abu Galum, a small Bedouin village one hour north of Dahab up the coastline. The Bedouins live there as they have done for centuries and it is still without electricity. There is a wonderful snorkeling spot there and you can stay the night there hosted by Bedouin.

    There is still plenty of time for additional activities which include diving, snorkeling, camel or horse riding, desert dinner/meditation, trekking, mountaineering and wind/kite surfing. A one day Mini safari at Three Pools is included where we will practice our morning yoga session by the seashore. Later you will be delighted by a Bedouin lunch, after which you can then snorkel. The Three Pools is named due to the natural formation of coral pools, each connecting to the other.

    • Barbara Gordon

      Barbara has been teaching yoga for over thirty years. She has taught yoga to over a quarter of a million people over the years and trained many of London's now leading teachers. She teaches yoga and runs courses all over the world and to date has certified over three hundred yoga teachers.

    Dahab is one of the Red Sea's oldest diving resorts and hosts some of the most spectacular and challenging dive sites in Egypt. It is now just as popular as a beautiful holiday resort destination for those who simply want to relax and get some sun, however with camels safaris, snorkeling trips, and desert excursions to name a few days out, there is plenty to keep you occupied too.

    Named after the Arabic word for gold, Dahab borders the Gulf of Aqaba and is an hour drive through the spectacular desert from the airport in the more commercial resort of Sharm el-Sheikh or a 90-minute drive from Taba airport. But the vibe in Dahab is very different.

    The village is a small, vibrant mix of cultures populated with white-robed Bedouin and their brightly adorned camels, the women swathed in black and the children, multicolored and mischievous, are always ready to strike up a deal for a bracelet or two.

    Egyptian traders and shopkeepers sell their crafts, food, and wares to the growing number of holidaymakers who are enjoying Dahab's friendly, personal vibe. The bars and cafes almost hover over the water of the bay, where there are plenty of great places to eat and relax after a day at play around the pool or in the sea.

    A delicious daily buffet breakfast is included, please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. A Bedouin lunch will be included in the one-day mini safari to Three Pools.

    The following meals are included:

    • Breakfast

    Reiki sessions per hour

    Reiki sessions work with your life force energy and help to align and release any negative blockages. Reiki is Japanese for Rei - universal and Ki - life force energy. The Reiki masters pass on “ki” by laying hands over the body and channeling energy to activate natural healing whether emotional or physical and also to stimulate the body’s immune system.

    Sudanese Beauty Treatments per treatment

    Sherin provides a range of traditional Egyptian and Sudanese wellness and beauty treatments exclusively for women, knowledge of which has been passed down from generation to generation by the “Haboba” or grandmother. Using natural herbs and seeds, she hand blends the scrubs and “cooks” her own sandalwood.

    Ask at reception for details of her treatments and to arrange an appointment.

    -Massage per hour

    A full body or head massage is a lovely way to unwind and give your body a treat. Whether you have a particular issue or wish to relax, they have a variety of massage therapies with their in-house international therapists. From deep tissue to reflexology and Indian head massage all on offer on 30 minutes or 60 minutes sessions.

    Emotional Freedom Training (EFT) per session

    EFT is a form of one-to-one counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way.

    BARS per session

    The Bars are a series of 32 points on the head which when lightly touched releases old energies stuck in the brain and body. Whether it is thoughts, emotions, decisions, judgments, and beliefs from any lifetime that are electrically stored in the brain, a BARS treatment will release and dump these junk energies, bringing more peace, ease, joy, and glory in life.

    Complimentary therapies. There is usually a range of complimentary therapies available, depending which practitioners are available at any given time.

    Massage is available year round, a 1 hour full body massage costing from 250 LE.
