The first Ecolodge of its kind in Egypt. Established by Sherif El-Ghamrawy in 1986, Basata preserves in many different ways the environment and supports the local community. Its concept and design are reflected in its name that means simplicity in Arabic. The Lodge attempts to create a simple and unique form of tourism that has a relatively low impact on the surrounding environment and native inhabitants.

This place is so magical. Perfect vibes and atmosphere that makes you feel like home. From the magical beach and coral reef there to the inspiring owner of the place Sherif who has a very great story to tell. I loved the food there and how the place is operated and finally Its the safest place to stay in.

If you are looking for a place where you can take a deep breath, a place where you can unplug and relax, you've found it. Nestled between two mountains, this cressant of soft white sand and blue sea is like a hug for your soul. Everyone here works from morning to night to make you feel welcome and at home. As the world changes at the speed of light, with news of disasters both natural and man made, this place is a calming oasis of familiarity and peace. As soon as I pull into the drive I can feel my entire being exhale. Do yourself a favor, if you haven't been, go, I promise you won't regret it. Thank you all for making my stay special and for giving me a home away from home.

Everything about Basata Eco Lodge was incredible. Starting from the philosophy of Sherifs to the amazing environment to the wonderfully kind people there. Everything about Basata is genuine - the sort of thing you wish existed but generally does not - but here it does!

Basata is one of Egypt's first eco-lodges. We spent our first night in a hut but my daughter and I were a bit cold so for the next 4 nights we moved to a chalet. The beach is serene and calm and my daughter swam for hours in the sea. We cooked our own breakfasts and lunches but for dinner they made us lovely vegetarian meals. The eco-lodge also arranged an excursion for us to go hiking in the Wishwashi Valley.

What a waste of such a beautiful place by the most rude employees you can ever deal with! Yes the eco-lodge is beautiful but I would advise to go to any other beautiful camp (because there are many) that has nice people.
