I've stayed here twice, just doing the breakfast rate and not an all inclusive package. The rooms are nice and fairly comfortable. The pool area is nice, though the water has been quite chilly both times I've stayed despite it being summer. Having the somewhat private beach area next to the lagoon was a nice place to read. The only... More

A ‘Dawar’ is a circle of tents in the desert. A traditional place of welcome, refuge and relaxation. Which is why it is a perfect name for the Dawar el Omda hotel. The building is a ‘U’ shape rather than a circle, reaching across a three-room bridge-section from one side of a tidal lagoon to another. It is ‘Boutique’ and... More

This is our fifth visit to the Dawar El Omda, which we found by pure luck three years ago. As always it feels like coming home the moment we set foot in the place. The staff rarely changed over the time, so we are always delighted to be greeted as familiar faces. Everyone at the place is very friendly and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique establishment among Red Sea hotels, Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel is built in the style of an old Upper Egyptian mayor's mansion. The traditional house's architecture is authentic to the core. Domes and arches in natural beige tones grace the exterior, while superb interior design gives pride of place to antique furniture and handcrafted decor pieces. Spanning across the saltwater lagoon that separates the island of Kafr El Gouna from the Downtown area of Tamr Henna Square, the hotel extends on both sides of the waterway, which are linked by a stone arch bridge. Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel is reserved for guests aged 18 and over Guests at Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel can swim wherever they fancy thanks to direct access to the lagoon from the hotel's small private beach, an infinity pool overlooking the lagoon, and shuttle boat access to the hotel's sea beach on nearby Zeytouna Island. Situated in the heart of El Gouna, Dawar El Omda is also adjacent to a myriad of bars, restaurants, shopping arcades, supermarkets, service providers, and entertainment venues featuring folklore shows and live music. ... more   less
