Swisscare Nuweiba Resort Hotel
Ranked #5 of 15 Hotels in Nuweiba
Reviewed 30 May 2013

As of my last year review about this resort, once again I would like to mention that it's really worth to stay and enjoy. This year too I stayed there with a group of 40 people. I really appreciate the location,( Red Sea own beach of the resort. You can enjoy your own beach ) service and amenities. One Important difference between other resort and this one is. The each and every suit of this resort is with double room and balcony. you will never find this type of amenities anywhere else within this price range. I really enjoyed this with spacious swimming pool, very good bar, good Continental and Egyptian food too. Even the local Egyptian spirit is available in the Bar at very affordable rate. ( I Bought One ltr. of whisky @ 15 US$ only. Sincere thanks and best wishes to my friend and owner of the Resort MR.ALVIN FURRER. I'll visit next year too.

Room Tip: Any Room, because each room has to front, either door or balcony.

It's really too bad that the Egyptian Revolution has killed tourism as Nuweiba has turned into a ghost town with many unfinished, shuttered & partially open establishments (from hotels to restaurants). On the positive side, it's quiet & peaceful for those who desire such destinations.

It seems incredible that our hotel was still open for business & doing a good job, in spite of the depressing tourism environment. The beach was pretty clean & the water had beautiful light to deep blue colors. The diving center was open but it was windy during our stay so no chance for snorkeling.

Good points:

1. Friendly & helpful staffs
2. Good dinner (yummy!)
3. Big room (got a suite)
4. Resort feel & peaceful
5. Romantic lighting by the pool
6. Hotel well maintained, despite only being partially occupied
7. Free wi-fi internet in the hotel lobby

Bad points:

1. The sink & shower water was initially yellow (probably due to lack of usage) but after leaving the taps on for several minutes, this was not a problem
2. The A/C / heater was missing the remote but not a big deal

We went to Egypt over Christmas -12. We were very happy with our choise of resort!
Nuweiba isn't a top-choise town, but the resort had what we needed - peace and quiet, sun and sea. Beautiful snorkeling.
We did two outings- one trip to the Chapel of the burning bush (St Catherine) and a boat-trip north of Nuweiba. Went snorkeling with dolphins and turtles!

I highly recommend this resort!

The Swisscare Resort lived up to its promises. I won’t bother you with details; I’ll limit myself to just absolutely confirm what the writers before me stated. You get very decent, clean and very spacious suites with separate bedroom and sitting area. Splendid beach, huge fresh water swimming pool. Decent food, friendly and helpful staff and all this for an incredible price.
OK there’s some wear and tear to the place but the location, attitude of the staff and the owner largely make up for that. When I’m going back to Nuweiba for more diving, this is definitely the place where I’ll stay.

We went diving with African Divers situated on the beach of the Swisscare resort (is why we chose the resort in the first place) I’ll write a review on them and about diving around Nuweiba on the African Divers Tripadvisor page.

This is a very good hotel. It is quiet and lacks the noisy ‘animation’ of so many of the hotels along the Sinai coast. The rooms are, in reality, suites of two rooms – with two bathrooms and a sitting room in addition to the bedroom. Rooms have a good side view of the Saudi mountains across the Gulf and arrangements for reclining on the beach are very good.
Dinner in the cool, quiet restaurant is a set menu of four courses in the evening, but is open to variation if a guest wishes. Indeed, the hotel is very accommodating in respect to using, for example, guests’ own non-wheat, gluten-free substitutes for spaghetti etc. Lunch can be ordered from a varied menu on the beach. Breakfasts, as all meals, are generous and fairly international in nature.
The various members of the staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. Deserving a special mention (in addition to Alvin, the very friendly owner who always has a friendly comment while dining) are Alaa, Radwan, Jihad and Mohammed the cook. The staff clearly work very hard for the guests and are very friendly and do anything to assist.
It is suggested that learning a basic vocabulary of some twenty words and phrases in Arabic enhances an already very pleasant atmosphere.
This was an excellent stay, especially for those who wish for peace and friendly staff mixing – as appropriate - with other guests of like mind.

Room Tip: Ask for an end upstairs room with the extra view across to Saudi Arabia

Much is missing here: crowds, animation teams, queues for buffet meals, loud piped music in public spaces and on the beach, noisy night time discos...

Swisscare is small with a huge pool. There were times when I was the ONLY person in the sea. Sitting on a sunbed under an enormous palm leaf fringed sunshade (so big it would shade you all day if you wished) and gazing out across the sea to the pink and grey mountains of Saudi Arabia describes Swisscare. Sitting on a small sand bank at low tide, quite alone, watching the tide gently come in ......

The four roomed suites are huge and clean though the (two) bathrooms needed an urgent facelift. We kept well for the whole of our two week stay The waiter service at breakfast and dinner was good and the diningroom atmosphere peaceful, the owner dropping in briefly at each meal to enquire after guests' welfare. Breakfast could be described as international with fresh lemon juice, fresh fruit salad, cereals, cheese plate of local cheeses, eggs, sausage, teas and good coffee.

Dinner seemed more Egyptian. Served in four enormous courses, stuffed courgettes featured frequently. Although it is a set menu there is room for flexibility when one is shown the dinner menu at breakfast. I enjoyed the grilled fish and seafood soup.

I have to mention that there is quite a difference between FCO current advice to travellers in Egypt regarding advisability of trips while on holiday, and what actually happens on the ground. Trips ARE still being offered locally.

Possibly what made this holiday for me was the lovely fellow Alaa who looked after us in the restaurant and who also served us lunch at the table by our sun beds. One of the sweetest guys you'll meet anywhere. Thanks too to Radwan and not forgetting the Bedouin beach guardian, tall and resplendent in white, unbelievably named Jihad! Other guests, like us, had come for the peace in the sun

The air-conditioning worked well and it wasn't too hot on the beach with a frequent moderate wind. Must mentioned the camel riders on the edge of the sea and the sweet baby camel against the backdrop of the pink Saudi mountains at sunset to complete the picture. Shockran ('thank you' in Arabic) Swisscare.

Returned last week from Swisscare (our 3rd visit) and feel totally relaxed again. Alvin and his team, in particular Alaa (now a Chelsea Supporter!!) were as welcoming and helpful as ever. The accommodation remains as spacious and comfortable as ever, and the air conditioning works perfectly, and comes at no extra cost. When you are in 35 degrees that is a BIG plus. There have been a number of small changes to the menu, all good, and eating lunch on the beach remains an unmatchable experience.
Total peace, total relaxation just fabulous, but you do have to sit in bar surrounded by Spurs Memorabilia - which is acceptable when the beat Man U and Chelsea win.
We will return.
Thanks a lot for a great time
