  1. Egypt is my soul home, being with Naser and his family seems so normal to me. I love being with the women and children, laughing and carrying on. Even though I do not speak Arabic we understand each other!

  2. This is the very unique place to stay at and 100% unforgettable! Here you can find everything: nice and carrying hosts who will take care of you as you are part of a family, beautiful desert and pyramids just outside of the house, yoga and meditation space under the stars, delicious food and beautiful local customs.

  3. A Peaceful Oasis

    The Nasser Abu Ghoneim Guesthouse is a peaceful oasis in the middle of the desert. Located in the Bedouin village of Abusir, the Guesthouse is miles away from the chaotic pandemonium of Cairo. The food here is amazingly delicious and filling, especially the homemade falafel and eggplant that I ate for breakfast today. The rooms are comfortable and spacious – mine faced the desert and the sunrise was spectacular this morning. The wifi and hot water worked ok.

    The most wonderful part of the Guesthouse is the vibrating meditation Dome. The space is ideal for yoga and meditation practice as well as meetings and hanging out. I was blown away by the way sound travelled in the Dome – it was almost like speaking and listening to my mind. Abusir not only has pyramids nearby, but is between the ones at Giza and Saqqara. The Dome is designed to bring together and concentrate all the energy from the surrounding spiritual pathways.

  4. My mother Kathleen Culpert traveled around the world in 1992 on a Meditation retreat. In her travels she met Nasser and his family. She stayed with them in their home before they built this beautiful guest home.
    She loved them as her second family and traveled there many times. Nasser picked her up from the airport and called me as soon as they got to abusir to let me know she was safe.

    She loved spending time with the women. They even made her dresses. She treasured them. She loved her time in abusir. Eating together as a family was always so important to her. She loved seeing the pyramids and appreciated how much love Nasser and his family had for her..

    We lost my Mother in the summer of 2010. A very sad day here on earth, but God got a beautiful angel.

    I know in my heart how proud she would be of Nasser and his family for this beautiful meditation guest home they have. I’m sure she would have left us here in America and wanted to stay in Egypt for ever to help with this amazing thing. She loved meditation and loved people. The dome would have been her favorite.

    Nasser and his family are special people. My mother treasured their friendship. One day I to would love to travel there and see this special place.

    I hope you that are reading this go visit this amazing place too.
    I know there’s a very special angel watching over them all there.

  5. Having stayed with Nasser and his family at the Guest House twice now I highly recommend it. I feel a part of the family and cannot wait to get back there.

    The guest house is a truly unique experience, the caring family attitude, the wonderful food, comfortable room, and such a wonderful peaceful dome to dance, meditate or simply sit in.

    Thank you Nasser, Mohammed and your entire family for making myself and my daughter feel welcome, and ensuring I know I have a family to visit on my next time in Egypyt.
    I will be back, Christine :)

    If Egypt is a beautiful country then Abu Sir is one hot spot of this beauty of Egypt .

You also will enjoy the very sophisticated dome and how sounds travels in there is amazing and the outstanding sun set , sun rise from the building .

  7. Nasser and his wonderful family made my stay in Egypt. Although I travelled there some years ago I still keep in touch as they are a highlight in my journey’s memories of an extraordinary people and place. Had I have just visited the main pyramids of Egypt on reflection, and had not stayed with Nasser and family’s Guest House in Abu Sir , I would have missed out on the highlights of my time in Egypt. Not only where the pyramid in the region of Saquara and further north of the stepped Pyramids more interesting to me, they had ancient pyramids and sites just outside within walking distance to their guesthouse. A phenomenal experience of local family and village life to enjoy a far more personal experience of one of the most interesting cultures in the world. Every detail was thought of to offer me a complete stay in the local region but also all of Egypt with such beautiful and integral people. The dome speaks for itself and it so unique in such a powerful place on the grid. If you are looking for more true experience of Egypt, you will feel honoured to have had the opportunity to stay and leave with memories that remain with you forever.

  8. I stayed with the Goneim family for 2 weeks and was treated with amazing hospitality. Nasser took me into Cairo several times and interpreted for me. Also went on an unforgettable trip to the white desert. I was lucky enough to experience a Ramadan with the family too. A great way to experience real Egyptian culture.
