  • Description


    My name is, Faraj Abdelfatah, I'm 29 years old and I'm from Marsa Matruh in North West Egypt. This is a quite beach town with a lot to offer. I am a lawyer and I own a hotel in the centre of town close to the beach. I like to meet new people and make friends all over the world.

    I am fun to be around and I often have my friends visiting. During your downtime, you are welcome to join me on excursions around the city and surrounding areas. When you help alongside me, being a Workawayer is secondary to being my friend and guest in my hotel and city.

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation is a suite within my hotel. They're typically two bedrooms suites (two beds per bedroom - sleeping four in total) with a shared bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living quarters, and balcony. You will have your own bed and wardrobe and may be sharing the room or suite with fellow Workawayers or hotel staff.

    During the summer season, the hotel is very busy and all rooms are full, so I may not be able to offer you a suite, but if you would like to come to help me during the summer months. I could provide you with a tent on the roof, the nights are very warm during the summer and you will still have access to the bathroom (shower) and kitchen facilities.

    I will supply all Workawayers with two meals per day; breakfast, dinner. I travel a lot and I'm often away from Marsa Matruh, in this case, I will give a food budget to buy meals or arrange for one of my hotel staff to deliver food to your room. Your room within the hotel will also have a full kitchen, so you can cook and prepare your own food if you wish. If I am in Marsa Matruh, then we can eat together and I will introduce all my Workawayers to delicious Bedouin cuisine.

    maximum stay is two weeks it depending on work in the hotel, also I need flexible workawayer during busy days to switch rooms if needed.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Marsa Matrouh has beautiful beaches which are attended from all over the countries. If you come I will suggest you the best of them like Aguiba beach, Rumil beach and Cleopatra beach with its big historical story behind.
    Marsa Matruh has something special in the winter and spring like quietness and being away from crowded places. You can visit the salt cave and the Bedouin village. Also we can go for a (zarda) which looks like a picnic in a Bedouin style, and gathering around the fire.
    You can go for walks around the city and meet the locals.
    Now let me tell you about a such good place , Siwa.
    Siwa Oasis is a great adorable place you can visit , it is located in the deep desert of Matrouh , you are allowed to visit it in the weekends.
