Taghaghien Island Resort

Siwa Oasis Western Desert, Siwa 51714 Egypt
Traveller (106)
Heaven on earth, a magical place that you won’t find anything like it, i found my happiness, peace and serenity here.   I watched the sunrise and the sunset every day, I haven’t seen anything more beautiful than this.   The people working there are really friendly and nice, always caring about you and about everything and doing their best to make you feel at home.   Edward (the owner) is amazing and helpful in so many ways, he planned the whole trip for me.   I’m in love with this place!!

An idyllic island haven, Taghaghien is set against a dramatic mountain backdrop amid a lush 38,000 sqm of land within the great Lake of Siwa. Access to the Resort is through a scenic 2km road that stretches across the Salt Lake to the main Island. Located 13km from downtown, we offer you a peaceful getaway in this secluded retreat. Surrounded by turquoise waters, limestone rock formations, green fields, and golden desert sands, you are guaranteed breathtaking 360 degree views within these stunning surroundings. In the center of the island lies a ravishing 4m deep Roman Cold Spring, as well as lush green fields and fruitful palm trees. The Island features 30 rustic style bungalows, a café/restaurant, oriental outlets, and a lavish reception featuring a western style bar for hosting group events and live entertainment. The reception also provides an elevated spacious rooftop that overlooks the entire island and its surroundings. Needless to say, the view from the top is nothing l

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Abouda 😊 if you are in Taghaghein Island Resort I promise you will be calling this name a lot..Abouda is the resort's jack of all trades; with his ready smile and pleasant character, Abouda is always around to help. Taghaghein Island Resort team is also nice, polite and helpful and the resort itself is the best and the ideal location to watch a heavenly sunset "check the picture out". Thanks Taghaghein Island Resort for the wonderful stay 💕

One of the best places to stay at in Siwa.
A great location of an island in the Siwa Lake, with uninterrupted views to the sunset and sunrise.
Great food, helpful staff that will guide you yo anything you want to do. Great vibes and music playing the whole day.
A must visit if you need a cozy, natural place to stay at.
And their parties are great, competing with Sinai parties.

Went there for a day use with friends. It was splendid, the view of calm lake water, the joyful play with jet-skies, and driving a lovely corvette over the waters. Sunset indescribable sight with the beauty breath and friendly customer service made it all. Thank you

pigeon droppings were everywhere, and pigeons were sleeping on the windows of the rooms because there was no pigeon tower. Breakfast was poor for a hotel in such a remote location. Dinner was terrible. In the morning I wanted to order a bottle of water, the cafeteria was closed. We ordered room service, went out in the morning and came back at 11 at night, and the room was not cleaned.

The location of this place is amazing. However, the staff showed zero professionalism in handling guests, it seemed like they don’t care to provide us with the minimal services. The room was unclean, breakfast was horrible and the buffet could feed maximum 20 people! I will not stay there again, I will only visit the island for the sunset!

The spot was gorgeous, while the place is missing good Managment to provide guests high level of service. During our accommodation we faced a lot of issues as follows:
1 - No room service
2- very low Quality of the food (Breakfast & Dinner ).
3- No regular clean up for out door places.

Heaven on Earth, the most peaceful place i have. Ever been too. I highly recommend this place if you want to refresh your soul and mind. I enjoyed kayaking in the lake, there is nothing that beats the view of being between the mountains and enjoying the complete silence.
