Accommodations for your kite trip in El Gouna

Kitesurfers in El Gouna who spend the whole day on the board want to be softly bedded at night. We were in El Gouna and looked at all the hotels and put together the coolest kite hotels in El Gouna for you. Whether it’s a cool kitehouse, a chic boutique hotel or a luxurious golf resort – there’s something for everyone!

The Three Corners Ocean View

The Three Corners Ocean View Hotel is for kiters who want to travel alone, as a couple or as a group and do not want to do without anything. A top kitesurfing hotel with a direct location on the Red Sea coast and exclusively for adult guests. The best thing about it: the hotel is located directly at the top of the marina and has a huge pool with spectacular views directly to the open sea. So you can see directly from your rooms and from the pool if there are already kites in the sky and what the wind looks like.


At the Three Corners Ocean View Hotel you will definitely have a rest at the pool, there is a gym with courses and a direct boat shuttle to Zeytouna Beach where you will find a colorful reef for snorkeling. At breakfast you can recharge your batteries for a successful kite day, at the breakfast buffet there are three live cooking stations. After a day full of kite sessions you can enjoy cool drinks at the pool.


The rooms at the Three Corners Ocean View Hotel are oriental yet modern in style. The incredible panoramic views of the Red Sea and the lagoon are definitely a highlight, and especially handy if you want to check the wind right after getting up. ;)

Ali Pasha

The Ali Pasha Hotel is a small hotel in El Gouna with an ideal location at the Abu Tig Marina and even more important for all kiters, right next to the Tuk Tuk stand. With the local transport you can reach the kitespot in less than 10 minutes. You are not only at the Abu Tig Marina, but also right in the center of El Gouna and therefore close to the local boutiques, the countless restaurants and the trendy nightlife. All rooms in Ali Pasha are currently being renovated, the first of which will be ready for you in November 2019.


At Ali Pasha you can relax in two swimming pools before or after the kite sessions. Guests of the Ali Pasha Hotel also have free access to the nearby Marina Beach at the tip of Marina Abu Tig. Active holidaymakers who want more water action in addition to kitesurfing in El Gouna will find several diving centres around the marina.


Ali Pasha has just renovated all the rooms, which will be ready for you in November 2019. The accommodation is in buildings that form a courtyard around one of the hotel’s swimming pools. Some rooms on the ground floor have a small terrace with access to the garden, while others offer a view of the gardens, the pools or the luxury marina.


Three Corner Rihanna Resort

The resort is located right next to a lagoon and consists of many individual buildings surrounded by a beautiful garden and built with typical domes and arches in Nubian style. Boredom will certainly not be a problem here, because in addition to kitesurfing there is beach volleyball, darts, table tennis, volleyball, water polo, water aerobics, aerobics, boccia, fitness, yoga and so much more! There is also a huge water park with a pool and slides, and even the younger guests have their own area and can have fun in the water.

The Mosaique Hotel is an “Adults Only” hotel and is a bit closer to the kitespot than the other hotels, but a bit further away from the restaurants at the Abu Tag Marina. Both the Fanadir and Mosaique hotels are often used for big weddings.


The Fanadir Hotel is the sister hotel of the Mosaique and is also located at the new Fanadir Marina. The Fanadir Hotel is often used for big weddings.
