This daving base is an excellent place mainly for divers. This is an advantage. Snorkeling is also possible. On the other side it less convenient for people prefering sun bathing only. Other places like Elphinstone Reef can be reached in short time.

House reef North and South offers a different topography and variety of marine life, centre is set up with the diver in mind and very efficient for house reef. However if trying to dive off site just be aware that minimum numbers are required so...

We (my son and I) did spend a week here just after the new year holiday period - occupancy was low (50-60 guests while during New Year they had 250 guests) so this could have had a, positive, impact on the experience. We came specifically for the diving and to get our open water certification. You can choose different sorts...

If you re looking to spend most of your time diving then this is the place. Good equipment, great location and great customer service. The food is good. But there aren't other activities to be done than diving. The camp is very close to Elphinstone and a lot of other awesome diving sites.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since our founding in 1990, Red Sea Diving Safari has grown into a world-class diving destination. Our eco-diving concept has been internationally recognized as a model of tourism development and our villages offer you the experience of what has become known as “The Eco-diving Adventure”. All aspects of the RSDS experience promote nature-based tourism and maximum diving enjoyment. Our villages were created in consideration of diving enthusiasts and our diving program covers more than 60 shore-based and off-shore dive sites. We offer our guests a variety of diving possibilities including; unlimited diving on our house reef, shore dives, night dives, and boat dives to world-famous dive sites such as Elphinstone and the Fury Shoals. Our operation consists of 3 lodges; Marsa Shagra Village, Marsa Nakari Village and Wadi Lahami Village. Our team also manages Pioneer Divers - Marsa Alam. Our villages are small because we maintain a minimal-impact policy towards the environment. Our guests take advantage of an exclusive experience in a nature based atmosphere. Our villages are simple with traditional eastern style domed architecture and every guest room enjoys an unobstructed sea view. Each one of our villages has a maximum capacity which is based on the carrying capacity of the house reef. Visiting our villages is more than just your typical diving vacation. By the time your holiday is over, you will leave with a new appreciation for the serenity and simplicity of our nature based atmosphere. Explore ancient ruins of long gone civilizations and learn about the long history of the Red Sea region. Take a trek through the desert to observe amazing wildlife and the Bedouins of the south. Meditate under the mutating colors of the setting sun and then fall asleep star-gazing under a moonless night. ... more   less
