Rooms Name Description
Nebyt is one of the titles of the goddess “Hathor” that means the golden pearl. We have chosen this name for our Dahabeya to be the golden lady on the Nile and also in honor of all the great women that were part of the great history of Egypt.
Hathor is an Ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of love, beauty, music, motherhood and joy. She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and the common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as “Mistress of the West welcoming the dead into the next life. In other roles she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth, as well as the patron goddess of miners.
Sailboats were common in Egypt at the beginning of the 20th century when the royal family and elite travelers loved to cruise the Nile in style. They rented the boats for weeks at a time, and made their way from temple to temple enjoying the river breeze. The boats had four to ten cabins, bathrooms and a host of servants. The dahabeyas are the way to enjoy Egypt at a leisurely pace, to feel the river Nile, and slowly blend in with the civilization around the Nile River.
Cleopatra VII was the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt; she was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great’s death during the Hellenistic period. The Ptolemies, throughout their dynasty, spoke Greek and refused to speak Egyptian, which is the reason that Greek as well as Egyptian languages were used on official court documents such as the Rosetta Stone. By contrast, Cleopatra did learn to speak Egyptian and represented herself as the reincarnation of the Egyptian goddess, Isis.
Nefertiti was the Royal wife of Akhenaton and gave birth to six daughters. Her famous bust is one of the most known of all Egyptian treasures. Her name actually means “The beautiful woman has come”. Her body has never been discovered.
Nefertari was the Royal wife of Ramses II and mother of Prince Amonhirwonmef, Prince Prehirwonmef, Princess Merytamon and Princess Meratum. Ramses II dedicated a temple to her and the goddess Hathor at Abu Simbel, next to his own. Her tomb, which is located in the Valley of Queens, is one of the largest and most beautifully decorated grave sites ever discovered.
Hatshepsut (Queen-Pharoah) She was the wife and half sister of Tuthmosis II. She was the daughter of Tuthmosis I and Queen ‘Ahmose and also the mother of Princess Neferu-Re’. Tuthmosis II was very young when he came into power and Hatshepsut ruled jointly with him for a number of years before assuming the throne herself. Eventually taking on the role of “Pharaoh, Her Mummy was identified in 2007.
