I went as a solo guest to Marsa Shagra for a week's diving, having done very little post-training diving and none since 2012: as such, I was probably the hardest type of guest for them to accommodate - no buddy and virtually no experience. From first to last, my experience was absolutely superb. The staff contrived to be both incredibly...

This is one of the best diving centres I have been to in Egypt. We travelled as a group with experienced divers, novices and snorkelers and there was something for everyone. If you are a non diver there is probably not much for you to get stuck into but if you just want to lie on a beach for a...

One of the best ecological camps Ive been too. The place is so cozy and the "Royal Tents" are definately the most preferrer option. The management is very professional & friendly and you will definately get the best of them during a football match. Diving with Marsa Shagara is very unique and memorable.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for writing such a complimentary review of Marsa Shagra. I am glad you enjoyed the location and all that it has to offer. Your 'room tip' is an excellent one - it is very important to us to preserve the reef flat area as it acts as a nursery for baby fish - right now we...

A perfectly gorgeous setting, peace, great food and service around the clock and needless to say the coral reef is just beautiful. I went for the relaxation and to do just a bit of diving as well; and I certainly got my money's worth of both. I stayed in a regular tent right in front of the water and would...

Most of the reviewers here are divers. I'm not! I went as a non-diving partner of an enthusiastic diver, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed the experience. We stayed in a hut, near to the complex (No. 5). The staff are helpful and friendly, the rooms are cleaned every day, the food was lovely. It's true there's not...

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
