“Something special here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I stayed a month at Habiba Beach lodge Aug-Sept 2013. I liked the simple natural feel of the place, the beautiful views of Sinai, Saudi and the Gulf of Aqaba. The rooms, though simple, were spacious and the bathrooms clean and fairly modern. Habiba Beach Lodge is a small community linked to the owner's organic farm and other local projects. I liked the idea that the owner was trying to create a sustainable local community educating and helping the local bedouin population and providing opportunities for intercultural learning and experience. I enjoyed meeting some of the interesting people who visited Habiba during my stay. The staff were extremely caring and were very warm and welcoming. The food was fresh and great tasting and presented attractively. I liked the fact that salads came fresh from the organic farm each day and it was interesting to go and visit and see how the farm was working too and meet the staff and volunteers working there. The resort on the beach is itself small with only 10 rooms but my overall experience was that this was more than just a resort or hotel, it was a warm friendly family and community. I would definitely go back again.

I have stayed at Habiba all summer (2013) as I am volunteering at the farm. All the staff here are lovely and the owners (Maged and Lorena) take excellent care of you as a guest. The food is local and fresh, the rooms have recently been decorated and come with A/C. The swimming is wonderful, near the lodge there are coral reefs with some wonderful fish! The emphasis is on a quiet place to relax so would be perfect for couples and people seeking a space to unwind and de-stress.

We came to this hotel at four o'clock in the morning and we were really tried and hot. They gave us a nice clean and cozy room with AC. It was perfect.
In the morning we sat at the beach restaurant to get our breakfast and it was a wonderful view with the ocean and Saudi Arabia in the horizon. The owner told us that they even have an ecological garden.

I stayed at Habiba in June 2012 when I volunteered at the organic farm that Maged also runs. Maged prioritizes quality food, and most that you eat is from the farm or the sea- super fresh and local! Everyone working there is very kind and welcoming.

We visited Egypt in December 2011. After 5 weeks it seemed very apt to spend the last night on the same beach that we flew over coming into the country. Nuweiba Beach is a huge expanse of sand stretching 5 kms in each direction. It's that large it can be seen by satellite. It was wonderful to travel the road as it meandered through the valleys of the Sinai that connects St Katherine to Nuweiba Beach, as we travelled along I wondered if we were going through the very same valley the Israelites did so long ago led by Moses. Many historians believe Nuweiba Beach to be the very same beach where they crossed the Red Sea.
Habiba Village sits almost at the northern end of the beach, the Saudi Coast is easily visible across the Gulf of Aqaba. Our accommodation back at St Katherine arranged for our transport - a minibus to take us out to the coast and to Habiba. We stayed overnight spending New Year's Eve with others in this great little hotel. The owner put on a special roast lamb meal to celebrate the occasion. The room was simply furnished but adequate and the bathroom relatively new. It has a great bar area and terrace area to hang out. They lit a fire on the beach afterwards, a wonderful time was had by all as various people sang or played and instrument, we even had a fellow who was a fire juggler for want of a better word. Just the best time. We left the following morning after breakfast to go back into the Port to buy tickets for the fast ferry to Aqaba. Be aware there are two ferries that leave most days I believe there is only one that leaves on Saturday, not sure on this. The fast ferry is the second one, it is supposed to leave around 1pm but the day we were there it never left until after 4pm, so make sure you have ample to eat as there is only one food vendor in the ferry terminal that I wouldn't eat anything from. You can't go back through to the town nearby once you go through customs. So bring a good book and plenty to eat and drink. Once onboard the ferry you can buy burgers, chips etc, cake and drinks. The voyage took just over an hour. We got our Jordanian visa at the Aqaba terminal, Its free, but be aware that there may be many others ( Egyptians Jordanians and Saudi's)who have come over on the slow ferry before you that need to be processed through customs and visa terminals... it took us 11/2 hrs to be processed.

We had a very nice stay in Habiba village. Nice view, lovely atmosphere, Red Sea beach is within 5 minutes walk, friendly staff especially Maged and Azza. They were always ready to help. We stayed as couchsurfers so we provided our own food. Nevertheless, Azza was kind enough to invite us for a drink and tasting some local food. Great memory!
