Destinations we offer > Egypt > Resorts > Coral Coast Hotel

We have worked with the Coral Coast and its affiliate dive centre for more years than we can remember! It is run and owned by our friends Chriss, Ema & Ehab who provide a welcoming place to stay meaning that clients return year after year. Normally it is Chriss who greets you and you are soon whisked off for a 'Welcome Drink' to discuss your diving requirements.

Situated in Dahab town at the northern end of the bay in a very peaceful location, this is the 'real' Egypt. There are no sprawling resorts here, just privatly run establishments, set amongst residential homes and shops.

Its location is beachfront within a 5 minute walk along the promenade to shops, restaurants and bars, giving you the option to be as secluded or gregarious as you like.

The eco policy of the hotel is a very active one indeed. Bedouin tradition dictates that the lease fee of the hotel is distributed between family members which is a far cry from hotels of international chains. Produce for the hotel is local where possible or from the Delta in mainland Egypt. Local arts and crafts are promoted within the hotel and during safaris to create income for local families to have the choice to continue residing in the desert plain as opposed to many who must relocate to the resort towns to earn a living.

The atmosphere is laid back to say the least. We would be amazed if after a week you couldn't relax and let the stresses of life disappear. The restaurent and Bedouin Tent are perfect for this as they have a great panoramic view of the Sinai Mtns and Saudi Arabia across the Red Sea.

The hotel pool provides cool relief during the hot summer and the sun terraces wind breaker a barrier from the winter North Westerly wind, so that sun bathing can be enjoyed year round.

The staff are very attentative, but not overly, and friendly. You are seen as a person and it is not uncommon for your name to be remembered on a return visit. Children are welcomed and are seen as a fun distraction and not a hindrance to work.

Dahab is unique within Egypt in that it has accessable dive sites from the town promenade. The sites Eel Garden & The Lighthouse are within minutes walk from the hotel.

Other sites are reached by truck and include The Canyon, Bells and the famous Blue Hole. This site has a depth of 65 mtr and is a favourite of 'Tec' divers.

Some of the sites can only be reached by camel making the day a bit of an adventure. One thing is for sure, whatever your experience or qualification, if you are travelling with a dive club, school or non diver Dahab can cater for all.
