I recently spent a day with friends at Castle Zaman. The setting and the decor of this venue are exceptionally beautiful . If there could be a bit more flexibility around some of the rules then this could be an outstanding venue. Like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, many people like to be able to enjoy a drink or snack whilst lounging by the pool. I think this rule may may be to avoid broken glass which is understandable. Perhaps a plastic option could be offered - i have seen this in other similar high end venues. The food was really enjoyable and beautifully but the portions are gigantic! Maybe a sharing option could be introduced - such a shame to waste such good food!

A mock castle perched high on a hill overlooking the countries of Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Not well publicised but well worth a visit if you want a gorgeous view, fantastic meal and a completely relaxing break. The food order is taken on arrival to allow four hours for slow cooking. There is a small but lovely sculpted pool with sun umbrellas and bean bags. At the time of our visit there were only two other visitors so it felt like our own perfect hideaway. The staff are so discreet that you would not know there was anyone there. Not suitable for children and do not wear high heels! Taxi transfers can be arranged but take your own beach towel. Well worth a visit.

The day we went to castle zaman there were only 5 in our group, we had the most relaxing time there, the views are amazing, the pool is fabulous, the food fantastic, the cocktails are great. Overall a must visit place when staying in the Taba area of Sinai.

This is by far the best place you could ever go to, everything there is just perfect, the food is really delicious, slow cooked and comes in a big portion, the cocktails are really nice, amazing small swimming pool, the bathrooms are super clean and the staff are very friendly.
Unfortunately you can't spend the night but you can still go spend the day there and enjoy being on top of a small mountain surrounded by one of the best seas on earth.
