A fusion between Scandinavia and Egypt. A place to relax into being. Mountain view. Rooftop with seaview to watch the sunrise/full-moon rise. Balcony, ceiling fans, air-con, cleaning service. You might have never slept in such a humongous bed before!

The space

This studio is called "Gaia" because of the ancient Greek word meaning mother Earth. The sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). The studio has a view to the distant mountains of the desert where the sun sets every evening and Dahab is all about underwater exploring. We wish our guests to get the most of these two natural wonders Dahab has to offer: the desert and the Red Sea.

Guest access

Guests will be able to access the rooftop terrace overlooking the Red Sea and the mountains of Saudi Arabia. The sunrise and the full-moon rise from here is otherworldly!

Interaction with guests

We can help guests get anything they need during their stay: transfer to/from Sharm El Sheikh's Airport, taxis, bike/motorbike/car rentals, camel/horse-riding trips, quad trips into the desert, dives, freediving or diving courses, trips to the valleys and canyons in the desert, trips to the national parks around or to the holly grounds of St. Catherine, activities for children, events such as life music, film screenings... buses to other parts of Sinai or Egypt, and we can recommend the best restaurants.

Other things to note

The Red Sea is one of the most amazing places in the world to snorkel or dive, but Dahab has a thriving community life and so much more to offer. It is also a freediving mecca and a real paradise for kite-surfers and windsurfers. There is also a lively community of expats/immigrants here that add up to it.

We expect guests to take care of the studios as if it was their own home. There is a cleaning service provided (included in the price) if you wish to use it. We are very flexible in general, so just ask in case it is possible. Exceptions can be done in many cases, but we do want damages covered.

Most unfortunately we have to ask Egyptian guests to bring their marriage certificate if they come with their partners. There're random police checks and we could get into serious trouble otherwise (so could you). It's embarrassing, it's sad, it's nonsensical, but that's how it is. Thank you for understanding.

Kira's place was excellent, close to everything, and more than adequately met our needs. We are grateful for her hospitality and look forward to staying in Dahab again!!!

Very beautiful relaxing home in the heart of downtown dahab. Close to all cafes and restaurants and 5 minute walk from the sea. Kira and Eslam, our direct contact were very helpful and had a fast response to all our concerns. The place easily fits 3 people but anymore would be a little tight unless you wish to only spend the space to sleep. Make sure if its winter to coordinate enough covers at night with Kira. I would stay here again.

Great studio apartment in the heart of Dahab, 2 minute walk from the corniche. Amazing comfortable bed and beautiful rooftop! Would definitely stay here when I'm back in Dahab!

Very nice and comfortable apartment. The rooftop is a very relaxing place at night. The location is excellent : 50 meters from the sea, restaurants, supermarket, bakery, pharmacy... In a calm neighborhood at night. Eslam is very helpful. Although we had some problems the first night to find the place and get the keys (we arrived in the middle of the night and I had a wrong number), the stay was perfect and I recommend this place if you are planning to visit Dahab with your friends, family or partner.

Athanor Lodge is as expected. For me much nicer than staying in a resort. More authentic to the area and the location was excellent. Very secure and a great cafe attached. Islam was helpful whenever needed. Kaira's communication was excellent and I hope to meet her one day when next in Dahab. The cafes around Athanor Lodge are also very good. Internet cafes on the beach were great and I established a regular place to eat and do important work via their internet, The Fresh Fish Restaurant. Not a reliable internet at the lodge but Islam tried his best but being a public holiday to get help was almost impossible. I understand these minor issues as a Airbnb host myself. Yes I would stay there again. Very comfortable studio in all ways and I enjoyed the salt water shower. Thanks Kaira and Islam

lovely place right in the centre of dahab within 1 min walk of the beach and some of the best restaurants in town . HUGE HUGE HUGE bed ! very clean and well presented . the guys downstairs in Athanor are on hand whenever you want if you need anything at all. top tip - try and dine in the superb Hells Kitchen early in your trip and get their wi fi code, that way when the wifi at the apartment isnt occasionally working you can jump on that instead !
