Resort Description

The Desert Rose Resort is a 5* hotel perfect for families or couples that want everything at arm’s reach.

In the heart of Hurghada on its own Red Sea lagoon, the Desert Rose Resort has all the ingredients of an easy vacation, from beach-view restaurants and bars to an aqua park and spa. Most of the guestrooms have a balcony or terrace to make the most of the hotel’s tropical gardens and spectacular views over the lagoon.

The on-site 5* PADI dive center offers plenty of open water dives, including shark encounters. Alternatively, the instructors can take you to secluded bays where you can dive straight off the beach. The Red Sea’s marine world is full of luminous coral reefs, rich in biodiversity, so shore dives can be just as absorbing as open water dives - and easier to navigate. 

Please be advised of the upcoming renovations at Desert Rose Resort. Scheduled improvements include the lobby, Dolce Vita Restaurants, and Rose Bar, with each project lasting 130 days starting from 25.06.2024.

During this time:

- Guest check-in/out will be at the Winter Garden.

- Minimal daytime noise may occur.

- No heavy machinery will be used.

- Renovation areas will be fenced off.
