Fodor's Expert Review El Wekala

Taba, South Sinai, 46621, Egypt

Designed along the lines of a grand Arabian family living complex, the shady courtyard with its cooling fountain that greets your arrival at El Wekala draws you into its Moorish appeal while the decorated domes, curved arches, wooden fretwork, and traditional Cairene tiled floors in the rooms add to the atmosphere. In "Old Town" Taba Heights, the hotel's rooms intertwine with the rest of the village, with balconies overlooking verdant squares, restaurants, and cafés that fill with guests in the evenings. An expansive terrace with panoramic views over the rest of Taba Heights surrounds the main pool.


  • village-like setting gives hotel a more authentic feel rather than a resort feel
  • excellent sports facilities of Taba Heights available to guests
  • all-inclusive but offers a dine-around option with other hotels in Taba Heights


  • the private beach area is remote from the hotel (access by shuttle bus only)
  • corridors resonate sound if you have noisy fellow guests
