Because Zekrayaat Dahabiya only has four cabins and two terrace suites, no more than 12 passengers can travel at once. It’s perfect for a special event, a small family gathering, a vacation with friends, or any other well-deserved indulgence. Each cabin and suite is tastefully furnished, air-conditioned, and equipped with a private bathroom.
Spacious cabins with plenty of space each cabin has two beds or one king-size double bed that can seat up to two guests and measures 17 square meters. Large windows provide spectacular views of the Nile. Every cabin is uniquely decorated with exquisite antique furniture, Egyptian carpets, and handcrafted tapestries. There is a bath, shower, and toilet in the private bathroom, which has a lovely tiled floor.
Panoramic Suites with a view. The two suites with individual patios at the end of the central hallway provide beautiful views and a pleasant wind from the river. Each suite is decorated in earthy tones with great care and consideration, using eastern furnishing and classic textiles sourced from all around Egypt. The suites have a huge king copper bed as well as a separate bathroom with a bathtub, shower, and toilet.
