The first and the last days of every desert tour we are spending in a small and cosy hotel complex, the hotel Sultana in Nuweiba.
The hotel is situated right at the beach of the gulf of Aqaba and offers 30 small and simple but clean stone cottages.
It is exactly the right place to prepare for the forthcoming desert tour with Israel Ariel. With its absolutely quiet location, about 3 km south of Nuweiba’s town center, and its excellent cuisine, this hotel offers the chance to enjoy the days of getting into the mood for the desert tour.
Its situation at the beach is ideal for swimming, snorkelling or diving in the Red Sea (18 to 26 °C depending on season). Only a few meters from the coast, a terrific reef offers its rich underwater flora and fauna. Those who do not want to go snorkelling or diving, can explore the reef with a glass bottom boat (upon reservation).
