“"Heaven on Earth', or should I say, "Heaven in Egypt"!” I stayed at Villa Bahri for 4 weeks over Christmas 2012. The owners were extremely helpful, in fact, nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended places to eat, organised taxis and a boat trip for us, and directed us to the best places to buy jewellery, papyrus pictures and other souvenirs. The villa is clean and spacious and very nicely decorated in traditional Egyptian style. It was really useful having constant internet access. The garden is beautiful, and I could have spent more time in it had there not been so many wonderful things to do. There are several different seating areas, depending on how much sun you prefer. Eating breakfast on the balcony every morning is one of my treasured memories.
The surrounding area teems with interesting places: Egyptian restaurants, archeological sites, boat trips on the Nile, museums...and the Valley of the Kings is just down the road. The local Egyptian people were friendly and welcoming and always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. The West Bank is much quieter and more rural than the city of Luxor, which was nice to visit, but I loved coming 'home' across the river in the evening to the peaceful setting of banana fields and palm trees.
I would definitely stay at Villa Bahri again and highly recommend it.
“Fantastic place to visit for a short break to get away from the winter and catch some sun!” If you want to experience some of the best diving and enjoy some sunshine during those winter months, this is the place to visit. The beach is warm and welcoming without being too busy and the diving opportunities are fantastic. The apartment is like a home away from home and is perfect for families as well as couples. The swimming pool is a sun trap and perfect for relaxing whilst the apartment balcony looks over it. The kitchen has all the mod cons so we were able to do a big supermarket shop and eat in some of the time, though we did enjoy local meals out too. From here we also organised a quad biking trip and left Sharm for a night in Dahab.
I'd recommend this place to friends who want to dive whilst staying in a relaxing resort away from the craziness of Naama bay. I'd also recommend this to friends with kids who would like the access to a beach and pool whilst living in a homely apartment.
“Most relaxing” Beautiful apartment, near to the airport and all the nice places in Sharm, Naama and Nabq.
Also a super large terrace roof to enjoy the views towards the sea and the mountains.
Several small swimming pools and one very large.
Everything is very clean and secure.
Owner is very helpful with everything and responding quickly to any answers.
