We just returned from Marsa Shagra, I think this was my eighth trip but it might be my ninth, I think I have lost count. It's much quieter than usual and Egyptian touorism is really struggling. If you are wondering about booking - please just go. You will have a wonderful time. We stayed in a Roal Tent this time.... More

Sleeping under a tent in the desert, long evening smoking a Shisha next to the sea and watching at the stars, beautiful architecture and very nice house reef! I love this place for few days. In this eco village(like in every hotel of the region), you are isolated from any town or village, so after a couple of days, I... More

The place is great with excellent, extremely friendly and accommodating staff. The beach is perfect if you're a diver or like to snorkel. The quality of food is very good. The place offers plenty of activities on site and also offers shuttle busses if you'd like to visit other touristic spots.

Perfect holiday with perfect staff to deal with Perfect relaxing in the royal tent which is too close to the sea. Different nationalities which lead to make new friends and relations Every one seeking for relaxing, exploring underwater world with perfect conditions and to be treated with professional and friendly way, must go to MARSA SHAGRA

I stayed at Marsha Shagara for four nights in Apr-May 2016. Even for non-divers like myself, it was a perfect spot. Secluded, not adjacent to any city-like structures, lovely sea view and nice swimming and snorkeling spots. People working at Marsa are extremely pleasant and friendly and go beyond usual niceties. It caters for different kinds of trips - tents... More

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
