... a photo will suffice, me thinks. The course of the spring water down the moutain charted by the green trees clinging to the steep sides. The boy explains that when he saw me, "I was scared" on account of height, width and that crushing handshake.
Another 15mins rumble across the desert valley to Khazali Canyon. Surrounded by mountains sprouting up out of the desert floor vertically. Another jeep in the distance is our only sense of scale. It's only that that makes you realise ...
... lot like southern Utah. I set up my tent in the desert with almost no one around except for the few Bedouins at the camp. I am on my own to explore the area and there are awesome places to hike and climb around, lonely planet refers to it as scrambling. You can have the experience of some rock climbing without being a professional. The whole area is beautiful and tranquil and I feel like I have this giant playground all to myself to ...
... private hotel beaches. Then since the beach wasn't that much farther away, I walked down there.
When I got back to the hotel, I drank a lot of water and took a shower to cool off, read a little before I uploaded a set of photos from the camel ride and some from yesterday's trip to Petra. I wasn't at all happy with the camel ride photos...the light is weird with the Lumix...I wonder why. Pam has a new Canon with 35x optical zoom. Hmmm.
Lazed around the hotel until 1pm when we left to get the taxi for the ten minute ride to the train station. . Today's lessons learned: Don't get into a taxi if there is already a passenger, don't get into a taxi if the driver just keeps saying ok even he is agreeing to the price.
Not all taxi drivers speak or understand English. Had quite a saga between the driver, other passenger and eventually a random restaurant ...
... did a little bit emotional goodbye to Aaron but he is a well travelled man. I believe we can catch up somewhere in the world again.
Nuweiba was a very remote place. Well, certainly around the bus & ferry stop. it was a bit of stroll to the ticket office with heavy backpacks and when we got there, the office was closed… great. Lonely Planet said they open at 9.00-12.00 but it was shut when we arrived. There was an Australian couple, a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Taba Heights Marriott Red Sea Resort
First class hotel and grounds. Room very clean, spacious and well equipped. Food absolutely appalling. I was terribly sick for 48 hours towards the end of my week at the Marriott. The buffet in the main dining room which was more like a canteen was of a shocking standard and certainly not 5*. Do pay extra to eat in the Italian Restaurant where the food was far superior. Many of my fellow guests were also poorly. No hot water in our room for over 24 hours due to a burst water main although the hotel did send up 4 bottles of mineral water. Very peaceful, nothing to do at night but great for pure relaxation.
We went to the Marriot in taba, on the 11th of November and stayed for a week. It was a lovely hotel. Let me warn you that the airport in taba, is a bit of tarmac and a convey belt. That is it. We had a 5 hour wait on the way home, so take food and entertainment. The hotel rooms are spotless and lovely and clean, as are the hotel gardens. I am a diver but be ware as waterworld(the dive school) will make you do an induction dive if you haven't dived in the last 6 months, even if you are a Padi diver. Cost $45. Cost for each dive is $60, and from what i could see, they didn't really take you anywhere that you couldn't snorkel from beach. Take a snorkel or do some snorkelling because it is the BEST ever. Go down to the hyatt Hotel (just next door but one) and snorkel off the jetty there. Really nice reef.
This was the best holiday I have ever had! My fiance and I went with Peltours in July 03. It is such a beautiful place, amazing deserted beach, beautiful swimming pools, excellent service. It was thoroughly enjoyable. We went for a week and really felt we hadn't enough time in the hotel as we went to Cairo overnight (fantastic, if you do it take the option of a dinner cruise on the Nile!) and also to Petra in Jordan (breathtaking).
We have just got back from a weeks trip with Peltours to the Marriott at Taba heights Egypt. This is the worse holiday we have ever been on!!!!!
I went here 2years ago and had the best time ,the hotel was lovely,with spacious rooms and very friendly helpful staff,choice of 3 restaraunts and a swim uo bar private beach and huge lagoon stlyle pool.I really enjoyed this holiday it was totally relaxing and trips were also arranged to see Pyramids ect,I have spoken with people who have also been more recent to different hotels and in all honesty the Marriott and the Soffitel are getting the best comments,I would love to go back early next year but with the recent troubles not so sure.
We went half board for 2 weeks and got the bargain price of £670 each ,unfortunatley now its got so popular you are looking more at £450 a week and they are not really offering 2week deals unless you contact the Pelltours website direct.
Hello i have just got back this morning, i am not happy to be back in good old england and pretty soon my holiday will be a fading memory so have decided to share my holiday experience with you.
I dont know how anybody can give this place negative feedback. I spent a week there in June and found it totally flawless. Very clean, good service and the price was fantastic. Possibly the only drawback was the single supplement.
Have just returned from the Marriott at Taba Heights and had the most wonderful time. I would tend to agree with another reviewer that it is perhaps slightly less than 5 star, but do not have anything major to complain about. In terms of hotels dealing with mass tourism the marroitt does it very well.
Researched the resort TABA HEIGHTS and the hotel on the web before we booked. Both had rave reviews. So we were somewhat disappointed when we got there. It WAS GOOD, but not as fantastic as the other reviewers suggested.
I have just returned from the Marriott in Taba Heights and would say that the destination reached my expectations in terms of what I wanted, sun, relaxation and early nights!!
