City Description  

"Moses Mountain" is the name of Mount Sinai in Arabic. A legendary mountain, upon which humanity received the Ten Commandments, will provide the backdrop to your stay in Taba. Located on the banks of the Gulf of Aqaba, in the heart of the Red Sea, the city of Taba is a crossroads of the Arab world. With Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia across the Gulf, this is an exceptional base for discovering the heart of the Middle East.

This crossroads allows you to easily discover a wonderful, secular, cultural heritage, like, most notably, St. Catherine's Monastery in Sinai.

The rich artistic heritage of this magnificent building, standing at almost 5000 feet above sea level and one of the oldest in the world, is captivating, with manuscripts and old icons that are a thousand years old. This setting worthy of Indiana Jones is sure to wake the explorer in you, as you head for the island-fortress of Salah El-Din, founded by the Templars in the 12th century. A historical vortex that can also be appreciated, back on terra firma and heading for Zaman castle, from the heights of Taba. From here, you will enjoy the splendor of the contrast which sets crystal-clear, turquoise waters against the harsh contours of the gulf's dark, sandy hills. The contrast continues, in this location that's isolated from the whole world, as you sit down in a traditional restaurant, or swim in a natural water pool. Once you've recovered your strength, head off to the magnificent Taba Heights golf course to finish off the day with a round of golf in an amazing natural environment. Although the region is famous for its diving locations, as dusk falls in this dream destination even the most reluctant could be persuaded to practice their swing…
