Lonely Planet review
Basata (‘simplicity’ in Arabic) is an ecologically minded settlement that lives by its name – using organically grown produce and recycling its rubbish. There are simple huts sharing facilities, or traditionally designed mud-brick chalets. Self- catering is the norm here with a communal kitchen and cooking ingredients available to buy, though if you’re feeling lazy there’s a bakery here too. The ambience is very laid-back and family-friendly with a New Age twist.
Our independent authors have visited Basata and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nuweiba to Taba.
