The entirely refurbished Cook’s Club El Gouna opens its doors from summer 2019. Located on the shores of the Red Sea, the desert retreat offers 144 Bedouin-inspired rooms, ranging from double rooms and two and four-bed rooms. Whether you’re windsurfing, snorkeling at Zeytouna Beach or chilling out at the pool, El Gouna has something for everyone. 


The pool is the central hub of Cook’s Club El Gouna. Sit back and relax to the sound of the DJ’s beats and relish the spirit of that summer feeling. If you’re keen for adventure, explore our private saltwater lagoon or show off your skills in splash diving from the wooden plank. Even better - azure waters and windy conditions provide the perfect conditions for kiting and windsurfing throughout the year. For those after a more relaxing option, head to Zeytouna Beach. Here, a 400-meter footbridge winds to deeper waters where you can swim and snorkel over a breathtaking coral reef.
