North Africa & Arabia Accommodation

Bets North Africa & Arabia Hotels

Crusaders, invaders, explorers and philosophers have all left their mark on these desert lands and the legacy is observed in the extraordinary monuments and diverse cultures which remain today. From the colourful souks of Morocco to Egypt's mysterious pyramids, the Biblical sites of Israel and the ancient attractions of Jordan, the forts of Oman and the glittering metropolis of the United Arab Emirates - all are destinations that dazzle and dwarf the modern-day traveller.

For many guests, the chance to stay in a converted traditional house is a major drawcard of a trip to Morocco. These midrange and top-end options are the type of accommodation that the term ‘boutique hotel’ could have been invented for, and no two are alike. Service tends to be personal, with many places noted for their food as much as their lodgings.

Egypt offers visitors the full spectrum of accommodation: hotels, resorts, pensions, B&Bs, youth hostels, cruise boats and even a few camping grounds and ecolodges. In Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor and Aswan, there are options for all budgets, from budget to super-luxury. Elsewhere along the Nile options are more limited, with fairly bare-bones operations that mostly cater to Egyptian travellers.

Butler service, Rolls Royce limousines, champagne baths – your imagination is the only limit when it comes to luxe lodging in Dubai. Yet the tiny turbo emirate offers the entire gamut of places to unpack your suitcase, including boutique hotels, heritage B&Bs, quality midrange hotels and, of course, just about every international hospitality brand under the sun.
