Dahab is known for its golden beaches, diving spots, and affordable Egypt accommodation, making the city a hub for backpackers, students, and other travelers on a budget. It is also well known for its hospitality and comfortable hotels. A typical budget hotel in Dahab consists of nice, clean rooms with balconies offering excellent sea views. Cheap hotels offer a wide range of activities including dive trips, horse riding, quad biking, and camel rides. Hotels such as Bedouin Lodge and Coral Coast are some of the best examples of budget Dahab accommodation for backpackers and travelers.
The Bedouin Lodge Hotel is one of the most comfortable Dahab hotels for an Egypt vacation. Managed by a Bedouin family, the hotel is located in the Mashraba district. You will get the finest accommodations complete with air conditioners, double beds, private bathrooms and shower. The rooms exemplify the simplicity of the Bedouins, ancient Arab ethnic groups settled throughout the Sinai desert for centuries. The hotel also has a very good restaurant serving traditional food including delicious Bedouin bread baked over an open fire and rice with meat and fish. Socializing on Bedouin-style tents complete with cushions and grand Bedouin music makes the restaurant very unique and special. It also has a nice roof terrace that provides lovely views of the Red Sea. You can spend your lazy afternoons here sunbathing and gazing comfortably at the sea. Although the Bedouin Lodge is a very small hotel in Dahab, the trips offered by the hotel are grand and exciting, as you can try diving by registering yourself with the hotel's own dive center. You also get access to other things to do in Egypt, including a camel safari to the desert, quad biking, trekking, and horse riding.
The Coral Coast is another great budget hotel in Dahab with a very welcoming atmosphere and excellent accommodations. Situated along the Red Sea coast, Coral Coast is very close to the famous Eel Garden dive spot and boasts 30 rooms divided into standard and superior ranks. The standard ones provide basic services including air-conditioning, shower, and a safety deposit box; the superior rooms have private balconies offering sea views, a refrigerator, and high speed internet. The Coral Coast is one of few Dahab hotels with Bedouin tents to relax in, and you can have a taste of a traditional Arabic water pipe called the shesha inside one of the tents. This unique activity makes the hotel a special place to spend your holidays.
