“Run for Divers”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

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.

This place is fantastic! Both the hotel and the dive center are well run (the latter with German efficiency, for better or for worse). The house reef is nice. The food is excellent. The deluxe chalets are spaced in a way that you feel as though you are staying in an isolated house, all by yourself. Ignore the criticism about the location, unless your idea of a vacation is loud pop music, screaming children and myriad "activities" for the tasteless hordes. Although the prices have gone up since we were here in August, 2011, it is easy to see why! Don't miss the massage. I actually fell asleep it was so relaxing!

Room Tip: The deluxe room all the way at the top is divine.

If you come to dive, this is a really good place. The chalets are nice and clean, the restaurant is good, and staff are friendly. There is not much to do if you want to do anything besides diving (which we didn't), and for example the pool is quite far from the rooms and the hotel. The diving operation is excellent, very well organized (German ;-) and with skilled and friendly instructors. Nitrox is free. We came here with someone who did the open water course and someone doing advance, and for them it was also very good. As more experienced divers, even we learned something new, and at the same time were allowed to go diving by ourselves when possible. Only minus here is the house reef. If you are really into making many house reef dives, you may want to opt for something less dead/more interesting. The other disadvantage: the holiday as a whole cost us about double it usually does. You do get value for it, but it is on the expensive side...
