My wife and I wanted to try a villa holiday for the extra piece and quiet without sacrificing the accommodation standards and amenities we usually seek when staying at high end hotels. We choose this villa based on the description and photos, and upon arrival we were not disappointed. The villa is exactly as shown in the photos and took our breath away.
All rooms are very well appointed with everything you need and it instantly felt like a home from home. The 3 main bedrooms are of a good size each with ensuite facilities, plenty of storage and 2 have direct access to a terrace overlooking the pool area. The bathroom in the master bedroom also includes a large bath. We found the bed to be very comfortable. The downstairs living area is open plan and comprises a very well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and all the appliances you need. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large dining room area, next to which is the main living room. In the living room there is a large flat screen tv with access to an extensive range of channels including current movie channels in languages to suit most. WiFi throughout the villa is available for a small extra charge and coverage throughout the villa and outdoor areas was excellent.
The jewel in the crown is definitely the pool area and surrounding grounds. The pool is a good size with swallow and deep ends and your own personal pool bar incorporating a BBQ. There is a large patio area comprising 6 comfortable sun beds, sun shades, a shaded dining table and an outside sofa area. Just beyond the pool there is a private beach area overlooking the lagoon and mountains in the distance. The whole pool area received sun throughout the day with the sun setting over the mountains for some stunning views in the early evening.
The villa is located in a very quiet part of El Gouna. The downtown and marina areas are a 5-10 minute Tuk Tuk or taxi ride away, both of which can be booked via the free local phone network and are very reasonably priced. The town itself is beautiful with everything you need including activities, shops, bars, and a wide selection of restaurants, most of which deliver direct to the villa if needed. Security throughout El Gouna is of a very high standard and all the people we met during our stay could not have been more welcoming.
The villa is perfect for couples and families alike, and the booking process and communication with the owner Dr Laila was first class.
We cannot wait to return!
