After reading everyone's delightful reviews, we too decided to book our holiday at this gem. Upon arrival lat at night, we drove up along the entrance way only to feel as if we had landed in something out of a book. Beautiful architecture, only to be showed up by its surroundings. One one side, breathtaking blue waters surround you while on the other, majestic red mountains shield this hotel, making you truly feel in your own private resort. We can not say enough positive things about every aspect, from service (the hotel may be officially classified as 3 star, but in terms of service and food, a 5 star is well merited). We are both avid travellers, I am a chef an sommelier and we both were thoroughly impressed with the location, the staff and the cuisine.
We took two excursions (although very difficult to leave the complex as it is so incredibly relaxing). One excursion by camel to a bedouin village where we snorkeled the entire afternoon, spotting fish that I have only seen on National Geographic; the other to St. Katherine where we hiked the 16km round trip to relish the sunset ontop Moses Mountain. Quite an emotional and spiritual experience, but not for the faint at heart (although you can do the hike by camel).
Would I recommend Daniela? Blindfolded. Kudos to the owners and to manager Hagag Said who have developed such an amazing haven and staff who clearly put their heart into everything.
