Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
Dine like a pharaoh at Castle Zaman, a laidback tourist resort perched atop a desert hill overlooking the Gulf of Aquaba. The castle boasts a warm and cozy interior furnished with wooden furniture, local pottery, and handcrafted chandeliers made from recycled bottles. The onsite restaurant prepares meals according to ancient Egyptian and Bedouin recipes. Lounge on a beanbag next to a natural swimming pool while waiting for a mouth-watering meal, and if you're up for an adventure, embark on a treasure hunt for handmade crafts at the castle's dungeon. The castle also includes a pristine private beach. Use our Taba tour builder to add Castle Zaman and other attractions to your Taba vacation plans.

  • It's an amazing place to spend your day. The beach is amazing and the view from the top is remarkable. The natural pool is so cold but so good as well. You don't wanna miss it We ordered " za ultimate fish fillet (salmon)" & "lamb" dishes. The food was cooked to perfection. Salmon comes with "Freek" and it was amazing for those who loves salmon. Personally I preferred the Lamb than salmon. The meat was so good and there was roasted vegetables that tasted awesome. I personally thank those working there and specially Lucy for the amazing day we had there ♥️
  • Quite calm relaxation place where everything is exactly perfect colors of the sky, pool, sea green plants even the rocks is just amazing stuff is too professional and friendly they have really cool wood furniture too, food was amazing but for me the lamp was a little bit heavy or maybe I was eating too much 😅 I was there end if November but I think it will be much much more better in summer time as I was not able to get inside the pool or the sea but we enjoyed the sauna only a small hint to go to the beach it will take like 15 minutes because the castle itself is higher than the sea level
  • Once in a lifetime experience. No words could ever describe the amount of chillax and fun we had there! Breathtaking view, amazing service, and great food. a must-have experience!
  • Castle Zaman is a magical place where you feel like a v.i.p guest in the coolest cocktail -pool- party. Before explaining why, its important to notice a few rules- Children are not aloud, the place does not include Accommodation whatsoever , the place is wheelchair accessible, There is free parking, its vegan & vegetarian friendly. There is no WIFI at all, but if you have an Israeli mobile program- you might probably have service & reception. The castle is an ancient fortress\ villa with a breathtaking view on the the red sea and specializes in slow cooking meals. Its important to know- it takes time for the meals to arrive to your table so you might come early, enjoy the place and then sit down and eat. There is a beautiful private pool for the castle guests, and you can really spend there almost a whole day. If your short on time and would like to eat and go, its possible- you just might want to call them and make a reservation for a certain hour. From my personal point of view- the place serves really the best food I've had in Sinai (this part of Egypt) and is the cleanest of them too. There is an amazing atmosphere and good music played all day long. Its truly so relaxing and refreshing, I highly recommend it. An entrance + meal for each person costs 45 EUR. (worth it, if you ask me) and drinks are not included in the price. You can buy them and pay for them in separate - good wine, cappuccino, smoothies, and more.Enjoy.
  • Different experience at egypt & perfect at everything specially the food quality & tasting 😋
