Sasha was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The house is in front of the BEST kite spot on earth and we slept very well. The rooms are big and fresh. Lily, the chef, was also fantastic. The food, freshly make, was so tasty. We also loved the atmosphere. See you next year. Lili xx

Great host with spot with real huge area with knee deep water. Not many people so you have the entire beach for yourself. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Accommodation is basic but clean. I just hope there was TV... food at the restaurant was good. Nothing fancy but just hit your spot after a good kitesurfing session. This place is not for someone who is looking for lots of activities other than Kitesurf. There is nothing around this spot. But you can just call Uber and go to El Gouna Marina which is about 10min ride. I recommend this place for someone who wants to focus on Kitesurf only and wants to make progress on his/her skills.

The best place of all. I started here with kiting.I was here already 4 times. Very nice and friendly people everywhere aroud. The instructros help you with all problems around kiting and will give you the best advice. Incredible kite spot, so clear and low water. You can use the rental, shower after riding and very nice kitchen with the best cook and waiter. If you need the accommodation you can rent the room direct at the kitespot. So enjoy your stay in this magic place

This is the only place where I went for kitesurfing twice so far and here are the reasons why: 1. The wind – at least 80% of your days there you will kitesurf. I had only one day of weak wind, but there is slide cable park for wakeboarding in El Gouna (10 minutes by car from station) – so you can be on board anyway ))) 2. The shore – the spot is between El Gouna and Hurgada, there are no people on the beach and in the water besides kitesurfers. And you have around 0.5- 1 km from shore to deep water. On this distance you could stand with head above water – means if you loose the board no bodydrag is required to grab it back, that safes you a lot of time – very important for beginners. 3. Facilities – wide range of new qualitative equipment, showers, washing space, lockers, safety room, lounge zone – very high level of comfort. There is also café in the lounge zone that offers new menu every day and kitchen that you can use - so that you can beat your hunger after long ride )) 4. Accommodation – you could live in Hurgada or El Gouna and the spot will provide you with transfer toward and back. First time I stayed in El Gouna – every morning the driver was at the hotel exactly in the agreed time. But this time we rent apartment directly at the spot (it’s 3 floor villa with a great equipped terrace on the roof for sun bathes). The apartment is roomy – huge bathroom, bedroom and very big your own balcony/terrace with sea view (you could meet at this balcony sunrises the every morning). And your accommodation just right in the spot – several stairs down in the morning and you are there, enjoying your coffee. And it’s very quiet in the evening after 6pm. 5. Prices – this is the best prices I had for instructions and equipment rent (comparing to Thailand (Hua Hin), Turkey(Alacati), Peru (Paracas)). Also the prices for apartment and meal in café were very affordable in comparison with what Hurgada or El Gouna have to offer. 6. Instructors – all IKO certified, highly experienced, enthusiastic, English and Russian speaking. Every time I am there I significantly moved to the next level. 7. Atmosphere – friendly, open, relaxed, much of lough and fun - thanks to the owner – Alexander Vashlyaev (cool man and cool kitesurfer), who is also at the spot every day. He is very helpful in terms of all requests (e.g transfer from/to airport, rent a car, find horses to ride (they bring us horses directly to the spot)). 8. El Gouna – it’s 8 km from the spot, 10-15 minutes by car and you can enjoy this beautiful private city project – artificial channels and islands, Marina walks, and really amazing restaurants with delicious cuisine you do not expect to find in Egypt. I highly recommend this place and surely will come back again!

Playkite is perfect kite spot for training. Not many people, low water, windy, great and friendly environment, big assortment of equipment for rent, qualified teachers for affordable price and warm atmosphere for sports vacation. I was 2 year in a row for a week of vacation there. Planing to come again. Thanks to Alexander for that great place and recommendations in kite surfing.
