About Red Sea Relax
Located in the beautiful Bedouin village of Dahab, surrounded by golden beaches and traditional bazaars, Red Sea Relax has been offering affordable Egyptian diving holidays since 2003, and now has two decades of experience in the region and six PADI “Recognition of Excellence” awards. The resort is situated just metres from some of Dahab’s most renowned reefs, with the famous Lighthouse dive site just offshore, and many more beyond. In 2018, Red Sea Relax expanded their menu of affordable adventures, operating muti-day safaris out of Hurghada, on board a beautiful budget-friendly liveaboard.
Red Sea Relax prides itself on delivering a friendly atmosphere, quality facilities, and very affordable diving. Having already earned the nickname of the Lighthouse Hilton, this resort has since improved its on-site accommodation, creating some of the best quality options in Dahab. With these modern, comfortable rooms wrapping around a glistening pool, Red Sea Relax seems to have hit upon a winning formula of luxury-like facilities for bargain prices. And, as a small family operation, the resort’s dedicated staff provide a highly-personal service, and are only too happy to ensure all your holiday needs are immediately tended to.
