Akhnaton Dahabiya is crafted in the style of an authentic Dahabiya originating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, embodying a colonial aesthetic. Central to this classic two-masted sailing vessel is its partially shaded sundeck, offering an ideal spot to recline on a wooden deck chair and leisurely observe the passing landscape. Below deck, you’ll find a charming living area, a salon, four cabins, and one suite. The inviting salon features a modest library stocked with literature on the Nile and Egypt. Furnished with plush sofas, this space provides a cozy setting to unwind at the day’s end. Engage in storytelling, exchange adventures, peruse a book, or engage in a game of backgammon, all while savoring a cup of Turkish coffee or a glass of fine Alexandrian wine.
