Resort Description

Roots Red Sea is a peaceful, intimate resort on El Quseir's coastline. 

The region offers something for every diver- be it colourful coral reefs, gently sloping sand banks, pinnacles or cavern systems. Look out for turtles, dolphins, spanish dancers, trumpet fish, blue spotted sting rays and more.

The resort is comprised of 30 rooms, all constructed with natural materials. Choose from simple eco-huts and deluxe chalets or boutique rooms with air conditioning, TVs and private bathrooms. 

Facilities include a freshwater swimming pool, bicycle rental, a healing center (massage, Reiki, meditation, life coaching) and a private beach. 

From Roots, you can visit Luxor, the Pyramids and El Quseir Old Town or go horse riding, quad biking or on desert safari.


Explore diving around the Roots Red Sea

What to see

Gracing the clear, calm waters are many varieties of colourful reef fish amongst the abundant hard and soft coral reefs. Crocodilefish, lionfish, batfish, humphead wrasse, many bluespotted stingrays and the occasional turtle and manatee should be expected. Oceanic whitetip and hammerhead sharks can be seen at Elphinstone while barracuda stalk the local sites and eagle rays drop in for a fly-by. Watch out for dolphins as you travel between dive sites.
