The are jewels in the desert but few shine as brightly as Roots Luxury Camp in El QUSIER. Owners/managers Steve Rattle & Clare Meadows started this desert outpost from scratch four years ago and the results of their careful planning and hard labor are nothing short of amazing. Great room choices ranging from eco-huts for the backpack crowd to luxury... More

This will be short and snappy: the second visit was even better than the first in October 2014. Diving: top again as well as the service and safety. Food: again yummy and we loved the Beach BBQ. The place felt like home, what more can we say. Would not be adverse to visit again :)

Had a great week at Roots. I stayed in a superior room,with air con working nicely to cool me down after a day in the sun and sea. The camp is very well run, friendly and organised. Diving on house reef (500 yds. from camp) is excellent,with plenty of reefs to visit by minibus within a 10 -45 minute radius.... More

Arriving at the airport late at night, we were a little unsure as to what was going on but we got though the visa fiasco to find our ride was waiting outside as planned, the drive to the camp was interesting and a little hair raising but pleasant enough. Pulling to the camp late at night we were welcomed by... More

Roots luxury camp offers the best in diving on the red Sea, with a beautiful house reef, delicious food, and it's affordable. To the crew and owners: thanks for an awesome week of diving, until the next time!

This was our third trip to Roots and, as usual, it did not disappoint. A wonderful diving experience in the middle of the desert where the staff work to provide the best customer service. Great diving every day, wonderful food, we will definitely be going back!

We have just returned from a week's stay at Roots and we wanted to share with anybody reading this what an amazing place it is. I know that is what everybody seems to say about the whole experience there and we would share all of their positive remarks. What made it so extra special for us is that we took... More

From the moment I arrived I loved the atmosphere - chilled out, friendly and sociable; the location - remote, quiet, with fantastic views of the sea and mountains; and then came the diving! Varied and beautiful reefs and canyons, rich with life and endlessly fascinating. Our luxury chalet had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, the communal areas were... More
