“Watch the sunset & the nightime view across Naama Bay - the most magical location imaginable!”
Reviewed February 23, 2011

Access to the Rawsha Roof Bar is through a reception area next to Oona's Dive Club & up 3 flights of outside stairs. It's on the roof, open to the stars - floor cushions with seat backs in about a dozen stalls or corals seating maybe 6 in each. The lighting is inspired - sort of buds or flames made from parchment panels laced together mounted on short posts, very soft lighting, but increasingly magical as the sun fades.
The view is as good as it gets, looking across the twinking lights of Naama Bay to the dramatic range of craggy peaks of the Sinai Mountains - behind which the sun sets.
We had gin & tonics and excellent white wine plus lamb kofta and local fresh fish (more delicate and tender than our UK white fish) with tahini (sesame seed type houmus) as a side dish with chips & coleslaw. Can't remember the cost, but it was quite dear - everything seems to be in Sharm-el-Sheikh.
Service is a bit slow - they have to get most things from 3 flights down - but very courteous and helpful; the manager of the bar downstairs is too, his English is excellent and if you can catch him at a quiet moment, interesting to talk to.
A pleasant surprise too is the loos on the roof - very smart and clean - worth a visit!
