Hurghada is located on the
Red Sea's West Coast, stretching for about 40 km along the
seashore, with the dramatic rocky mountain ranges of the Arabian
desert as its backdrop. The Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel
is situated at the southern end of Hurghada, directly on its
own, private beach. Hurghada International Airport is six
kilometers away, the distance to Hurghada city center is five
kilometers. Several charter flights daily connect Hurghada
with Europe, at an approximate flight time of 4.5 hours. From
Cairo, there are daily and overnight coaches reaching Hurghada
in about 6 hours. Getting around there is a choice of taxi,
mini bus or regular buses. The hotel also operates a free
shuttle service to the city center several times daily.

Our concept was born of the Dau boat, which - in ancient times - provided a link between the East African coast and Pharaonic Egypt by transporting ebony and other precious goods by Dau boat up along the Red Sea coast, via the port of Hurghada, and all the way to the city of Thebes, now Luxor, where the pharaohs built their magnificent temples.
