This charming area used to be a Bedouin settlement, but is gradually becoming a residential neighbourhood. Rowaysat began life as a Bedouin residential zone in 1998. Its scenic desert location and cheap land prices meant however that it soon transformed itself into an up and coming residential area. For here it was possible to buy land and build a one-story house to your own design, rather than select from several off-plan options. The village attracted the long-term residents of Sharm El Sheikh. Located on the mountain side about 7 km away from Naama Bay, houses there are usually quite spacious with a garden and a beautiful view complete with camels and sheep surrounding them, adding a touch of authenticity to the neighborhood.
