Ride Egypt Dahabaya (floating hotel) – sleeps max 6

Imagine being lulled to sleep by the gentle lapping of the waves, only interrupted by the call of a bird. This is night time on a dahabiya! Serene nights; peaceful days; silent sailing; total relaxation; and all available today, as it was almost 100 years ago.

When it comes to River Nile cruises, most people know about the large cruise boats and feluccas, some people know about yachts, but few people know anything about dahabiyas, which take their name from the Arabic word for gold: dahab (the earliest form of this boat was golden coloured). This is rather ironic as the dahabiya was the mode of transport, on the Nile, long before the modern day diesels, or the steamers made famous by Agatha Christie’s “Death on the Nile”.

The history of the dahabiya goes back to the Pharaonic times: there are inscriptions of very similar boats in the tombs of ancient Egyptian Kings and Nobles. Famous Egyptian leaders, such as King Farouk and President Sadat,

For those looking for a unique and authentic opportunity, we highly recommend our Dahabya instead of a hotel / guest house option. It hosts 3 twin / double cabins all with private bathrooms.

Our Dahabya is docked on the West Bank of the River Nile, you’ll dine on the top deck under the stars with views of Luxor Temple, enjoy a tranquil breakfast with views along the river. The Dahabya comes complete with a small crew and chef to attend to your needs. You will find the perfect balance between privacy and attentive service.

The boat can be hired by one group in any format mixing twin rooms, doubles or single occupancy. It can be hired from 2 people to 6. Our Dahabya is static but can sail on request for sunset drinks or dinner, half or full days.
