A more recent addition to the hotels on the Red Sea Coast of Egypt, Dahab Paradise is a peaceful resort that offers a pleasurable holiday on many levels.  Nestled between mountain and sea, it is uncomplicated in its design and landscaped in a way that takes advantage of the beauty and serenity of its natural surroundings.  Dahab Paradise can easily be seen as a retreat from the world you left behind and from the touristy boardwalk of Dahab proper. Rooms are simply furnished, offering adequate comfort and amenities.  Each of its second level rooms has a private terrace and ground level units include a private patio – each one of them overlooking the inviting turquoise of the lovely pool, and beyond, the immense, deep blue of the sea delights the eye.

With city sounds left in the distance, it becomes a difficult decision – shall we nap, lounge by the pool, walk along the seashore, or wander in the wadi directly accessible from the hotel?  Many of the hotel guests have come to take advantage of the world-class diving and wind-surfing that make Dahab such a popular destination.  From here one can arrange desert safaris, mountain treks, diving trips, sightseeing trips to Sharm el Sheik or a spiritual journey to Mt. St. Catherine's.  All are within easy reach.

If stillness and relaxation is on your menu, then stay put.  For sustenance, the menu at Dahab Paradise Restaurant is tempting, varied, and most satisfying.  One can select from traditional Egyptian fare or enjoy the chef's tasty versions of more international classics.  Ingredients are freshly sourced, carefully prepared, and beautifully presented.  I would recommend their restaurant even if one is not a guest staying here.  It is worth stopping by for lunch, not only for the food but for views of the sea, or for dinner when the grounds are illuminated in the most magical way.

Ah, delightful, soul-restoring Dahab...  Just maybe this really is Paradise.
