“Perfect place in a perfect place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Simply perfect, all! It's the first time in my life that I've been in a place so quite, so beautiful and overall so relaxing. The beach is something unforgettable, we've been alone for 90% of the time we spent there, when there's someone else is also perfect because the space is not enough to be filled in with few persons like we were. The place is clean, the service is perfect, not absent but absent when you don't need, present when you need something and fast enough. The rooms are perfect, small enough to don't let you wanna stay in loosing the amazing space you have around. The kitchen is very good (I'm Italian...). In one sentence is not possible to describe all but it's good so you MUST spend some time here. We'll come back for sure. Thanks a lot

Hats off for the matarma bay team, incredible job I'd say. Designed for a perfect weekend getaway, only 2 hours away. Ideal for winding down form the hectic Cairo, with lots of chill out areas, impressive beach view comfy rooms, friendly staff and not to forget their delicious food ,make sure to try Their BBQ chicken. Ras sudr is famous for its kite surfing centers and local beach bars all 5-10 mins drive from matarma bay. There is something for every one in matarma bay it's perfect for groups and families , defiantly coming back for more.

The minute you arrive it all starts. You park your car and you're in front of the beach.
Checking in under a huge bedouin tent with smiles and welcomes, reflects the pure and humble egyptian spirit.
The rooms are absolutely amazing and comfortable. You are literally sleeping on the beach with a very convenient price.
Excellent service ''with smiles''. It's the perfect place to stay at ras sudr. It's very close to the best kitesurfing centres and spots.
The food was very delicious. One can say ''I HAD A PERFECT WEEKEND''.
Thank you matarma bay family

It's a small boutique hotel... With Simple A/C Bangalows , reception is a big relaxation scene, all directly on the beach... Pity there was no wind for kitesurfing. But we enjoyed ourselves, food was very good..
Warning, ras sudr is for relaxation or kitesurfing, nothing else..if its for you, this a great place.. Price is reasonable too...owners were very welcoming , thx Zeina, ismail and Sherif.

an amazing hotel, thats the least that can be said
The location is breathtaking, all rooms/huts are less than 20M from the beach, all you have to do is get out of the room and walk down to the beach for a great swim
Rooms are very clean and spacious, compared to other hotels/camps in the area they are extremely well designed and equipped with powerful AC's and LED TV sets

The food is one of the highlights, go for the Grilled Chicken with Honey Mustard, thats the special, other dishes like the Shish Tawook and Pastas are also breathtaking

Room Tip: all rooms are very similar in location and size

It's rare that a place impresses me enough to write a review about it. Visiting Matarma Bay was one of the best decisions I've made this summer. Only a couple hours of drive from Cairo, the hotel is situated on beautiful private beach. Matarma has 16+ private huts, equipped with flat screen TVs, A/Cs, comfortable beds, and sheets that seem like Martha Stewart herself sowed. It didn't take long for me to get the vibe of Matarma Bay. Basically do whatever it is you like doing. If you want to do yoga, go swimming, chill under the tent, watch the stars, kitesurf, drink, exercise, collect sea shells, or just simply read a book....Matarma welcomes you with open arms. If you think this sounds good...wait till you meet that staff that promotes all this. I was constantly greeted with smiles, lovely light conversation, and the answers to all my questions. Still sounding good...I haven't gotten to the food. So apparently one of the owners is a food buff, so nothing that comes out of that kitchen is less than perfect. I had my style eggs for breakfast, honey mustard grilled chicken for lunch, pizza for dinner, and a crepe as my midnight snack. Ok, so I may have over did it a little on the food but no need for my skinny jeans here. Take your buddy, girlfriend, or group of friends....this place will leave you all saying the same thing "I think I found heaven."
