We didn't quite know what to expect when visiting Egypt (it was our first time) - the staff at Dawar El Omda were all absolutely beautiful and made our stay even better than we could have imagined. Paradise! We will be back :)

A lovely typical old Egyptian style hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff where fantastic and could not do enough for you. The hotel itself does need some renovation however due to the circumstances and lack of tourists in Egypt at the moment this is understandable. We could really relax and sometimes had the pool area to ourselves, pool was...

It offers all the facilities desired: infinity swimming pool towards the lagoon, terraced restaurant, lagoon beach, etc. The location is ideal, just by down town with a variety of shops, restaurants within a short walk....

Lovely boutique hotel. Loved the breakfast and hospitality of staff. Very good price. Rooms are clean and perfect for the price. I recommend opening the ac even if just on fan just to create a white noise and sleep well.

We visit El Gouna several times a year. Last 3 years we only stay at Dawar El Omda. Beautiful location, very friendly team and super relaxing hotel. It needed some renovations and we discovered during the last visit that they already started. :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique establishment among Red Sea hotels, Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel is built in the style of an old Upper Egyptian mayor's mansion. The traditional house's architecture is authentic to the core. Domes and arches in natural beige tones grace the exterior, while superb interior design gives pride of place to antique furniture and handcrafted decor pieces. Spanning across the saltwater lagoon that separates the island of Kafr El Gouna from the Downtown area of Tamr Henna Square, the hotel extends on both sides of the waterway, which are linked by a stone arch bridge. Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel is reserved for guests aged 18 and over Guests at Dawar El Omda Boutique Hotel can swim wherever they fancy thanks to direct access to the lagoon from the hotel's small private beach, an infinity pool overlooking the lagoon, and shuttle boat access to the hotel's sea beach on nearby Zeytouna Island. Situated in the heart of El Gouna, Dawar El Omda is also adjacent to a myriad of bars, restaurants, shopping arcades, supermarkets, service providers, and entertainment venues featuring folklore shows and live music. ... more   less
