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. 

What to see

Expect to encounter the usual array of colourful reef and fish and their associated activity in abundance. Turtles, humphead wrasse, trumpetfish, crocodilefish, bluespotted rays and an assortment of morays are all there waiting to delight. Whitetip and grey reef sharks patrol and barracuda, mackerel and tuna guard the blue. Mothfish and stonefish and the ever present lionfish hide in plain sight and you might even be lucky to see a stargazer or frogfish too. Pipefish and nudibranch are a-plenty for the spotters.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Encounter turtles, dolphins, sharks, pelagics and hundreds of species of reef fish

Description

Undersea Advenures Diving Center is a 5* PADI diving centre offering all levels of dive courses in the Red Sea.
