BEIT THERESA || @beit_theresa_dahab

We’re not supposed to have favourites but when it comes to Beit Theresa, we are happy to throw our journalistic objectivity out the window. This is without doubt THE most beautiful rustic little escape in all of Dahab. A passion project born of a love story between the owners Mimi and Mamdouh (stay tuned for our special @scenetraveller feature for more on that!), this villa directly on the beach (as in quite literally step out the front door ONTO the beach) features three picture-perfect rooms each with their own lovingly curated aesthetic. We would like to effusively recommend you book the Tree House and wake up floating over the Red Sea. But the best thing about this AirBnB is Mimi and Mamdouh themselves who will make you feel like you’re spending the weekend with your beach-dwelling BFFs. If you go nowhere else this year, go here, and you’re welcome in advance.


THE BEACH RETREAT || @airbnb

Nestled on Assalah Beach, this is a simple but beautifully decorated Arabian-style one bedroom apartment.


THE BRIDGE DAHAB || @thebridgedahab

Just steps away from the hustle and bustle of the boulevard, this 12-room hotel is a sleek, modern stay with one of the best dive centers around.


ALF LEILA BOUTIQUE HOTEL || @alfleilahotel

This Arabesque boutique hotel only has seven rooms, all inspired by the timeless tales of 1001 Nights.


DANIELA VILLAGE || @danielavillage

Another Traveler’s Choice 2020 stay, this is a cosy family-run diving village that has built a loyal community since slipping into the scene in 1999.


CASA D’OR DAHAB || @casa_dor_dahab

Beach-side grandeur with a hippy heart. Adventure by day; sip cocktails at the pool by night.


SEAHORSE LAGOON VILLA || @airbnb

Lovingly curated one bedroom apartment with patio doors opening out onto a lush garden and jacuzzi just three minutes from the beach.
