Basata Ecolodge

Sit back and take in the spectacular seascapes and tranquility of the Egyptian Red Sea, set in a haven respecting Bedouin culture.

Tucked between two desert hills and overlooking the soothing Red Sea in South Sinai, Egypt, Basata Ecolodge values simplicity and respect for its surrounding environment and native Bedouin culture above all else. Founded as an antidote to the exhausting rat race of life in overstimulating cities like Cairo, Basata invites visitors to switch off and reconnect with nature. 

 

With a devotion to thoughtful hospitality that considers both people and place, Basata Ecolodge has thoughtfully designed bamboo huts and traditional adobe chalets that sit on the shores of the Red Sea in the Gulf of Aqaba. The lodge’s activities allow guests to take a step back from the modern world and appreciate the historic wonder that sits in Egypt’s South Sinai mountains.

With seven seasons, the island shifts and changes depending on the time of year but what remains constant is its power to connect people with what is essential.
