I returned home a week ago after a two week stay in the Bedouin Moon. When in Dahab I always return to this hotel, when I can. It is clean, quiet and well run by the friendliest and most helpful staff you could wish for. The hotel looks out onto the Gulf of Aquaba with the mountains of Saudi Arabia beyond. The pool area is in an elevated location above the hotel affording views over the sea and to the mountain which forms a backdrop to the hotel. In short, this is a charming, magical place in which to relax and forget about the worries of home and work. Whether you dive, do yoga or simply want to chill-out, you will not be dissappointed.
I came here to dive, with Reef 2000, the the dive centre located within the hotel. This is justifiably regarded as the best, and most professionally run in this part of the Red Sea. The staff are friendly, highly professional and safety conscious at all times, whilst determined to ensure that you get the most out of the diving that Dahab has to offer. They, together with the Bedouin Moon staff really treat you as if you are a cherished member of the family. Some of the highlights of my stay this time included: Becky's birthday pool party, my first manta ray sighting here, witnessing a marriage proposal/engagement at 30m in "The Canyon", being accompanied for about 30 minutes of a 62 minute dive by a turtle and a great last night Dahab style boys night round at Dave's (the owner's) house with Dave, Floh, Alex and Christian. Thanks guys for all your fantastic hospitality!
For anybody concerned about safety/security after reading recent FCO advice, I would have to say...DON'T BE CONCERNED. This place has a really safe vibe and is probably far less of a "target" than Sharm. Why the FCO have given this advice is beyond me. Please think about coming here as Dahab is really suffering from a lack of tourists at the moment. I know that I will certainly be back again at the first opportunity!
