When my partner and I got engaged, we knew we wanted to have a wedding celebration with a difference, and wow this hotel certainly delivered. Due to the legal complications, we opted to legally marry at home in the UK, but travelled to Dahab Paradise to hold an intimate ceremony on the Red Sea with our closest family and friends.

First off, the contact we had with Loulou and the team via e-mail was brilliant - they were happy to accomodate our wishes and made some fab recommendations (we highly recommend the mountain Bedouin dinner for a romantic night under the desert stars) and made the organisation so simple. On arrival we were picked up by a very friendly cab driver for a breath taking drive through the mountains at sunset, and were welcomed at the hotel by the whole team who didn't stop smiling throughout our entire stay. The room was beautiful, comfortable, and the hotel itself was lovely, tranquil and exactly what we had hoped for.

The hotel handled the various members of our group arriving at random times throughout our week stay perfectly and everybody was made to feel welcome and relaxed in the friendly laid back atmosphere.

The hotel team were OUTSTANDING and even decorated the restaurant and arranged for a special wedding cake on the evening of our ceremony as a surprise. They organised a camel ride to the Blue Hole on the day of our ceremony (and thoughtfully arranged for a return trip by jeep so our guests would not be too tired or saddle sore to sit through the evening ceremony!) and put so much effort into ensuring we enjoyed our stay. From freshly cooked omelettes at breakfast to having lunch delivered to the room for a bit of peace and quiet, nothing was too much trouble and every request was met with a big smile from the staff.

We also took advantage of the onsite dive centre, Big Blue, and had a great time diving in Dahab with some fantastic guides.

I cannot thank the team at paradise enough for such a wonderful, unforgettable experience and would recommend this place to anyone wanting a laid back, relaxed, beautiful, romantic stay for a special occasion or just to relax by the gorgeous pool in the sun.

I have never been so sad to leave a hotel after a stay, and am already counting the pennies until we can return.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 2 weeks in September and cannot fault the Dahab Paradise.
The rooms were beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfy I wanted to bring it home with me! Spotlessly clean with the most amazing towel art iv ever seen!
Wifi was free but very hit and miss, however the hotel has upgraded it and we had no problems in our second week! :)
We stayed half board and the restaurants food was excellent with the most wonderful relaxing ambience!
Staff and service throughout the hotel was amazing and a big shout out to Nemo, Remo, Michael, Hussan and Joe!
The pool area was to die for with the most spectacular views over to Saudi!
Would I stay here again? 100% yes! Would I recommend it to a friend? 100% yes! Am I gutted to be back at work? 100% yes!

This place has got to be one of the best spots on earth. The hotel
dahabparadise.com is really small and classy with a very relaxed vibe.
Check out their website - it does exactly what is says on the tin.
There's a nice bedouin tent area facing the gulf of aqaba where you
can practise yoga poses or just chill. No one hassles you here. Lovely Fresh
seafood .My room has a porch surrounded by
jasmine and hibicsus that is 8 steps from the pool. It's hot but
not humid with a lovely breeze. You can walk accross the road to the sea and shorkel the reef
The hotel is very quiet and peaceful but only a 5 minute taxi ride from dahab (costs about 1.50 euro). All the rooms are identical built in a cresent shape all facing the sea. There are no bad rooms. I llke the ground floor best and you can stroll to the pool in a few steps. The upper rooms would be that much quieter but ir depends what you are in to
its not without stress though
1. which snorkle site to start with
2. which yoga pose
3. shrimps or calamari
4 sit in sun, partial sun or shade.
For a single female traveller it's perfect

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. I llke the ground floor best and you can stroll to the pool in a few steps...

Dahab Paradise organised transfers to and from the airport making life really easy for us before we had even landed. We were driven to the hotel in a comfortable air con vehicle arriving at the hotel nice and relaxed. The staff tended to our every need, our room was clean and tidy with all the amenities that you would expect. The hotel has a certain charm all rooms over look the pool and have a sea view. You do have a road in between the hotel and the sea but this is very rarely used. The hotel is owned by Bedouins and has a tent to take chi with Bedouins who make you feel very welcome. Snorkelling can be done on site with a house reef teeming with fish right in front of the hotel. The hotel is also affiliated with a dive centre in Dahab “Big Blue” who catered for all my diving needs, most of the time it was just me and the dive guide!!
All in all a fantastic place to stay, Dahab is a little grubby but has a bit of a hippy style laid back feel to it. I would visit again.

Room Tip: Ring and speak to the staff and tell them what you would like.

My boyfriend and I have just spent a week at the Paradise. It is a wonderful hotel, small, quiet, relaxed and friendly. Situated between a range of hills and a coast road, the views are beautiful - deep blue water in the day and stunning sunlit hills in the evening. Our room was lovely with beautiful furniture, an AC and fridge, and spotlessly clean - we loved the daily towel creations! On the ground floor, it had a private terrace which was a great spot to sit, chat to our neighbours and play cards in the evening. The pool is a stunning centrepiece to the hotel with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas, an endless supply of beachtowels and outdoor showers. There are also deckchair seating areas, overlooking the bay, which are lovely if you want a quiet spot to sit. The restaurant is open air, again with views of the bay, and the food (served all day) is excellent. As a vegetarian I am used to limited options in the UK and was very pleased with wide variety available; the lunchtime BBQ and Egyptian buffet night held whilst we were there were very good and the fruit cocktails are a must. The highlight though is definately the staff who were, without fail, friendly, helpful and efficient - they were brilliant. We didn't really leave the hotel whilst we were there (it was a sunbed and book holiday!) though the boyfriend enjoyed a morning dive with Big Blue Dahab who have an office at the hotel. Finally, although we went "out of season" with the daily temp was 38-40C, we did not really notice it due to the near constant breeze that comes in off the bay - it is very refreshing and with such low humidity we never felt uncomfortable. All in all, our week at the Paradise was just that, it is a little gem of a hotel and definately one that we would definately return to.

Was a very pleasant stay. I have been all over Egypt but Dahab Paradise is by far the best Boutique hotel in Egypt.
The hotel rooms design is great all interior design is from Egyptian old heritage, the staff was very friendly and the hotel location has an excellent view of the sea. The restaurant of the hotel is perfect. And the hotel is very clean.

Highly recommended for relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: upper rooms have a very nice balcony

A lovely spot outside the main drag but not too far. The atmosphere is easy-going and the service lovely. The spot is stunning - it's in the crook of a huge mountain on the coastal road and it's designed so that you are always looking out to sea in your room, by the pool or eating breakfast. Enjoyed chatting to the Egyptian owner and the staff, who are warm and efficient. Having been warned by an Egyptian friend, I was bit wary about reactions to gay people but when I raised this on the first night, I was reassured in a straight-forward manner that we were by no means the first gay couple the hotel had welcomed. It's in a quiet stretch so not good if you want to stumble directly home from a restaurant but perfect if you are happy to spend the day on a private beach (which is worth it) and grab a cheap short cab ride home to paradise at the end of the day. the summer deal was insanely good value but we did have to move from our first room as it was a bit dusty and a fiddly walk to the pool - the new room was lovely.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms are a short stumble to the pool
