Made this our "Must do" for our holiday and went to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary; Rather out of the way, but a magical place; lovely people and excellent food though a little pricey.
Think Flintstones Dinosaur joints and you have some idea of the portion size!

Do you want to know the heaven? then you have to go to Castle Zaman.
This is a wonderful place well managed by Nina.

Swimming pool, shower, sauna, lunch, coffee... there is a great attention for all the details.

there are also a beautiful object homemade to buy.

But an other thing is important:
After a person goes to castel Zaman, something magical happens like at the end of a beautiful tale.

My partner and I went there 2 weeks ago while enjoying our holiday in Taba Heights. I had read a lot about Castle Zaman and had high expectations. A taxi picked us up from the hotel and about a half hour later we pulled up to the castle.

We met with Layla and Lucy, and then went on to discover the place. It is so beautiful, the pool, the building, the treasure room, the views. Magnificent really!

We enjoyed lounging around the pool, having coffees, beer. A very relaxing day.

Only after I asked, Lucy brought the dogs out, we played in the pool with them, it was great fun!
The pool is so clean, so nice, so relaxing! The changing rooms & toilets were very nice as well, all in all, this was a beautiful place. We will definitely go back!!

Now on to the food, I ordered the Seafood orgy, my partner the Lamb feast.
Oh my god! The food was very good, cooked to perfection, and soooo much of it. It was just perfect. We enjoyed a good bottle of Egyptian wine with it as well. It's not cheap, but reasonable and you do get great value.

Seeing the sun set there was magical and seeing the moon rise even more spectacular. We also made friends with some locals visiting the place and had a great night.

This to us was one of the highlights of our vacation in Taba, we can only recommend this gem!

Thank you Lucy, Layla & the whole staff! We will be back!

And then dinner well what can i say i enjoyed the lamb tagine whilst my partner tucked into the seafood, absolutely outstanding!!! a table of salads, egyptian rice, lamb falling away from the bone and seafood heaven, crab, prawn, squid, the list goes on.
The ladies at the castle are lovely and you are made to feel like welcome guests in their beautiful home !
