This was our 3rd trip to El Gouna but the first time in a villa and what an enjoyable experience we had! Our family loved this beautiful villa, having breakfast and lunch in the sunshine on the patio by the pool and chilled evenings under the pergola with a shisha. The airport pick up arranged through Ed went smoothly and we had a great welcome from Nasser upon arrival at the spacious and well equipped villa. The pool was a lovely temperature and well attended as were the grounds. We walked into downtown on the first night (about 20 minutes) but then made full use of the tuk tuk service (a bargain at 40LE for the 5 of us) and visited several restaurants and bars around downtown and the marina. With 2 days of boat diving and 4 days of relaxation our week went by far too quick so we look forward to making a return visit in the not too distant future. Thank you Ed and Nasser!
Thank you! Looking forward to having you as our guests again in the future!
Villa Saluma is as nice as the pictures depict. We had a wonderful holiday from the moment we arrived to the time we left. We arranged transfers through the villa owner Ed and were met at the airport with no problem. We have visited El Gouna many times, staying in various villas in both West Golf and South Marina, and villa Saluma is right up there with the best. West Golf and South Marina both have plusses and minuses. South Marina is well placed for walking to both downtown and the marina, but has no views, and most villas are overlooked by apartments. West Golf is a little further out and outside of walking distance to downtown and the marina for us. Villa Saluma makes up for this with lagoons front and rear and a beautidul view over the golf course. The fact it is a little further out really isn't a problem as it is very easy to phone either a taxi or tuk-tuk from the vilaa. Just a point of note for parties of four (as we were). With the recent rise in the fare for tuk-tuks it is now half the price for 4 people by taxi (20LE) as opposed to 40LE for two tuk-tuks. The villa is well appointed with all you need to make your stay relaxing. The pool is excellent, clean and well maintained, something that has sometimes been a problem at some villas we have stayed at. Our favourite spot, especially in the evenings, was the thatched pergola by the pool. After dining we would return to villa, grab drinks, and chill under the pergola. We spent some very late nights under there, including sitting up to watch the sunrise. Ed (and Luke) corresponded with us very well and frequently, from our initial enquiry through to booking and departure. The local agent Nasser (and Emad) are excellent and can't do enough for you. We had an issue with the telephone and wifi during the first week but this was quickly resolved by Emad. If it's your first visit to El Gouna you will find lots of nice restaurants both downtown and at the marina. Two that we particularly enjoyed on this visit were The Orient in lower downtown, and Breeze in the marina. If you go to Breeze on a Sunday it is best to phone and reserve a table as it is Karaoke night and can get busy, but it's great fun. I perhaps shouldn't say this in case Ed reads it, but Villa Saluma is excellent value for money given the pricing. We would certainly book again.
Thanks David, it is good to know you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in our villa. We are also happy you stated it is great value for money as this is exactly what we want to offer our guests. Looking forward to welcoming you again somewhere in the future!
Overall the Villa was very lovely and can not be faulted. However, the pool was very cold and the children were really looking forward to getting into the pool. Once the pool was heated it took two days for the temperature to be right. So I felt that we had missed out on two days in the pool. There was no brush or mop to clean up, the villa had almost everything except a brush and a mop. I did ask Naseer (local agent who looks after the villa) but did not get a respond back from him. Overall would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a nice time.
Thanks Sophia and family. We are happy that you enjoyed your time in our villa. Unfortunately, due to the strong wind, the pool heater took longer than usual to heat up the pool. Further, we will make sure that the storage location of the mop and brush will be made more clear (they were both present in the villa). Kind regards, Ed and Jacqueline
La villa est magnifique et agréable . Nous avons vécu une semaine idéale avec une piscine parfois trop chaude mais tres bien entretenue , nous remercions aussi N'asservit pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse' grande envie de revenir
Merci! C'est tres agréable d'entendre que vous aviez un bon séjour! Malheureusement , c'est impossible de refroidir la piscine lors des journées tres chaudes.
Just arrived home after 9 nights in Villa Saluma and highly recommend this villa. Ed and Nasser couldn't have been more helpful. We loved the outside space and pool, which was cleaned and tested daily. There are wonderful restaurants close by via tuk tuk or taxi, our favourites were La Luna and Chez Pascal. Cooking in the villa was very easy, everything you need is there. All in all we had a lovely holiday. Thank you Ed and Nasser
Villa Saluma is probably the best deal you can find in El Gouna for a group up to 6.
We stayed in the first week of February and everything was perfect. The driver arranged by Mr. Visser, the owner, was waiting for us at the airport and drove to the villa, where Nasser welcame us with a smile and cold water in the fridge, which was really appreciated since it was 3 am when our flight landed.
The day after, the swimming pool technician came and in one day, the water was at 24 ºC, one day later, at 26 ºC and the rest of the week at 28 ºC, making the use of the pool a pleasure.
The villa has everything you need for your stay, from sunloungers to towels, from TV set to magazines, and a very well catered kitchen, with microwave and classic oven, dishwasher and washing machine. Having breakfast and lunch at the table in front of the swimming pool rocks!
The villa is located in a very quiet area in front of the golf court, but calling (for free) a TukTuk or a taxi will put you in any area of El Gouna in minutes.
I´d definitely recommend this property to anyone willing to enjoy El Gouna and a relaxed and stylish holidays, and it´ll be my first option if going back there for my third time.
El Gouna is a very safe, clean, modern and distinguished private village of about 20 thousand inhabitants and not accessible for outsiders. The village has the most modern facilities. Next to a perfectly maintained 18 holes golf court you will find plenty of stores and approximately 70 excellent restaurants with outdoor terraces situated around the magnificent marina and in the centre of the village. Further, El Gouna is a paradise for kite- and windsurfers. It also is an ideal base for snorkeling and diving trips per boat on the Red Sea, for jeep- or quad safari's in the desert and for making excursions to Luxor and Cairo (can be booked in advance or at location). Further, it is possible to play tennis, to ride horses along the sand beaches and even to ride a go-kart on a professional kart track. For entertainment you can stay in El Gouna or go to the larger seaside place of Hurghada, which is situated 20 km south of El Gouna. Hurghada has an international airport with many planes landing or taking off daily from and to various places in Europe. Finally, the perfect climate throughout the year also guarantees a splendid holiday.
