The Oasis
Ranked #35 of 68 Hotels in Marsa Alam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Oasis is a typical divers' Hotel with a well organized Dive Center attached. As such, the Hotel will offer a quiet and long coral beach, further a quite good cuisine but not more. Evenings are for divers who prefer going to sleep early. Conclusion: as passionate diver you will enjoy it. Not to be recommended for seniors and handicapped who cannot climb too many stairs.

Room Tip: Take a look at the Hotel map, partly long distances between the houses and significant level differe...

Beautiful calm serine place. Wonderful people super friendly. Very clean. Good food.
We went there with a group of friends and enjoyed our selves tremendously!! The owners where super nice and extremely welcoming on arrival. The beach is good but in order to reach the water you have to go on to the pier, as the shore line has a coral reef. but its beautiful when snorkeling or diving.

Room Tip: the rooms in the 30's are the closest to the main building.

This is the best run dive centre I've had the pleasure to stay at in my 20 years of diving! The resort is quiet, no screaming kids, no disco - perfect. It consists of 49 individual chalets, built like a local village, the whole ambiance was relaxed and peaceful. The staff were friendly & helpful, the food good & the diving great. The diving operation was extremely well organised, the briefings very good; also after the check dive experienced divers were able to dive unguided with max dive times of 75 mins/dive if they wanted to. Guided dives were 60 mins or so, depending on everyone's air consumption. The house reef was open from 6am until 8pm, max dive time here is 120 mins. Saw turtles on nearly every dive.

Everything was perfect for our dive holidays! After a stay in one of the big resorts in Marsa Alam we found our oasis! Nice bungalow, good food, personal service and super diving! On top an interesting trip through Wadi Gemal.

Beautiful location, very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. No screaming children, no mindless tourists, everything is centered around a well-run diving operation with excellent guides. Elphinstone reef alone is worth the visit.
Restaurant is great, rooms are individual chalets built like a little village, aside from the swimming pool and the massage, it's all about the diving. The way the place is set up though you meet practically everyone after one or two days, and end up doing dives and having dinner together. Even if you come on your own, it is hard not to meet people here.
A true oasis in the desert !!

We, 4 adults, spent a week diving. The diving, thru Werner Lau and Sinai Divers, was worldclass. And the hotel was faultless, great service, food, austere beauty of landscape, very friendly and professional. My one and only question is : "where are the women"? The entire staff is male, I did not see one single female Egyptian...
We hope to come back to the Oasis again.

"The oasis" is a very special resort. It isn't a ordinary hotel in tourist beaches areas. The structure is characteristic and essential.
It's a very quiet place, without animation. All very relaxing and quiet.
Perfect atmosphere, but sometimes too silent and motionless.
Beautiful swimming pool.
