Swisscare Nuweiba Resort Hotel

... From the one point of view, friends from Cairo say they feel like they travel abroad to get there, and on the flipside, the standard question on telling a Bedouin you've come from Cairo would be something along the lines of, 'What's the news from Egypt?'. Indeed, considering the map of the country and the huge proportion of Egyptian life that is concentrated to the capital, it is customary countrywide to refer to Cairo as 'Egypt'. So to travel to Sinai ...
... change in climate might help. We were off and within 15 minutes Adele started saying that we needed to head back to the hotel as she had left her glasses behind. When Mamdoh asked were they expensive, she replied "No" but thankfully she found it in the bottom of her handbag. Some of us settled into our seats and decided to play a round of hearts.
An hour or two later we heard commotion in the back ground. Michael 1 was looking around his seat and bag frantically. We found ...
... next trip to Egypt unless you want to spend some extended quality time being a beach bum in a beach shack up the road from the ferry port or bus station. Our hotel, which does not need to be mentioned, was so grim that the roaches didn't even bother. Grim. The internet “café” and I use the term quite loosely, a few doors down, was even more grim. More like an internet “den”, or “hovel”. I mean, like, ...
... taxi to the ATM. So we all wandered down to the restaurant - things were really quiet for them, they had quite a number of restaurants, but none seemed to have people in. We ordered and then the guys went to get money. The only problem was that they were waiting for the guys to come back but didn't seem to have even started the cooking until then. So we ended up eating about 10 o'clock, this made for some pretty tired children. The food was okay but ...
... Schneer as wish to catch up on history of the countries we are passing through. The declaration you'll recall, said Britain would use its “best endeavours to establish in Palestine a national home for the Jewish people” and “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.” Britain, as usual, played and plotted and deceived all sides, the Arabs most of all. The then Pope had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Swisscare Nuweiba Resort Hotel
We arrived late on Christmas Day after a long couple of days getting here - we live in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands and were greeted like long lost friends off the coach. Having stayed at the Hilton earlier in the year we knew what to expect - no bright lights, themed pubs, discos etc and the main reason we chose the Swisscare was we had had a sneak preview when we had visited to snorkel the reef (more of that later). If your type of place is one of the big multi national hotels that litter the coast hereabouts then the Swisscare is not for you. However if you want a more personal experience then the Swisscare is. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. A welcoming bottle of wine, cookies, fresh fruit and chocolates greeted us when we were guided to our rooms by Walid and the House staff carrying our cases. Food was excellent and we never had any stomach problems (unlike many people we spoke to on the few excursions we managed to stir ourselves to book). We can't speak highly enough of the staff, who were all friendly, polite and couldn't do enough for you. The house reef is one of the best that we have snorkelled in the area (evidenced by the visit of the boat from the Hilton) and you can see a wide range of fish, corals and other invertebrates. We saw Emperor Angels, slate pencil anemones, barracuda.........and one of our fellow guests saw a turtle. If you're lucky you may see the local Osprey or even be visited by a flock of Flamingoes, but if all else fails there's always the antics of the local Bedouin boys on their camels and horses to entertain.
Service mit 5 Sternchen
Wir waren über Sylvester für 11 Tage im Nuweiba Swisscare und können dieses Hotel ohne Einschränkung empfehlen.
Die Zimmer sind gross und gut eingerichtet, der Strandbereich ist wohl der schönste und gepflegteste in der ganzen Region und der Service ist unglaublich - jeder Wunsch wird einem von den Augen abgelesen und erfüllt.
Für alle Ausflüge im Sinai (z.B. Katharinenkloster, Mosesberg, Colored Canyon, White Canyon) ist Nuweiba der ideale Ausgangsort und zum Schnorcheln liegt das Riff direkt vor dem Hotelstrand (wir hatten das Glück beim Schnorcheln eine Schlidkröte zu sehen).
Für alle die einen Urlaub abseits von Hektik und Trubel suchen ist das Swisscare ein idealer Zielort.
My partner and I spent the last week of October (2006) in the heavenly Swisscare resort in Nuweiba where we experienced service and accomodation beyond our expectations! Situated away from tacky tourist areas, we enjoyed what I certainly prefer, a more traditional egyptian experience with a personal service second to none!
We would echo everything that the other reviewers have written - this hotel is a real gem. It is very difficult to sum up exactly what it is about this place that makes it SO special. Alvin, who owns it, says that he has built it and runs it just the way he personally would like to stay and to be treated. And that extends to every detail of the place and the service.
We have traveled all over the world and lived on 4 continents, and this was by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The personal care by the staff was unsurpassed, the food could not have been better, the facilities immaculate, the beach and snorkeling first-rate. If you are looking for a quiet place to visit in Egypt, this far surpasses Sharm el-Sheikh. And, you will not find a better price for a 5 star hotel...anywhere. We could not recommend this hotel any more highly.
If you want to get away from people and totally relax, if you want to do nothing but snorkel, read, lay in the sun, eat, drink and sleep, if you simply don't want to think about anything, even about what to eat, then this hotel comes highly recommended.
Ultimate Care at the SwissCare Nuweiba
My Nebraska family of five came to SwissCare for four days of sun and snorkeling. The place is a jewel in the deseret. Alvin, the owner and manager keeps the place spotless and visits with guests at each meal and on the beach! The rooms are very spacious with excellent beds, bath and balconies! The place is like a 5-Star hotel with the feel of a small family home. It's a great place. Breakfast and dinner is included and the cuisine is delicious. There is a beautiful coral reef right off the beach. If you book for five days you can stay for two more days free. What a deal! In the photo, Alivin is the handsome, tall guy in the blue t-shirt and shorts.
My family (My wife, 3 daughters and myself) stayed for 4 evening in early December. As a father of three young daughters who is always concerned for their well being and safety, the things that stood out where:
We stayed a week at the Swisscare, Nuweiba Hotel and enjoyed every minute of our vacation.
A great hotel in nuweiba
Last month we have visited Nuweiba and stayed at the new "Swisscare" hotel. It was amazing. It is a brand new hotel, built on one of the most beautiful coral riffs. It has a huge swiming pool, great food and a very very friendly staff. Prices are very raesonable, for the opening campaign. Highly recomended!
