You can explore on your own or join expeditions to dolphin house and other offshore sites. Very relaxed, no schedule, good food and very relaxing. Seemed very safe even for a beginner! Tents are comfortable and...

I spent a week at the dive centre and it was one of the best things I've ever done. The diving was excellent, the house reefs were full of life and a trip out to the wreck at Abu Ghuson is to be highly recommended. I stayed in a chalet with a/c which was clean and comfortable. Food in the...

We wanted a complete chill out week with diving and we got exactly what we wanted. The staff were fabulous.. The food brilliant and we dived when and where we wanted... the perfect break. Thank you. . If I had a criticism it would be that we would have liked sunbeds outside of our room..but we had a fabulous week.....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Marsa Nakari is a charming sea-side lodge approximately 20 km south of Marsa Alam city. Its main appeal is its proximity to the Sammadai protectorate (Dolphin House); one of the Red Sea’s most important national parks and attraction. There are various other highlights including Wadi el Gemal national park, desert trips, cultural encounters, historic sites, Luxor, daily boat, and much more. Marsa Nakari is also a historical site dating back to the Roman times and known to the ancients as the port of Nechesia. The remains of its ruin are still present atop a hill towards the southern end of the bay. Marsa Nakari is the dream holiday for those seeking to experience Marsa Alam’s true heritage. Expect the silence and serenity of the desert atmosphere and the world-renowned beauty of the red sea reefs. Our villages are small because we maintain a minimal impact policy towards the environment. Our accommodations consist of standard tents, luxurious royal tents, huts, or deluxe chalets. Natures beautiful simplicity permeates our village theme and our tourism model will give you a new appreciation for the serenity and simplicity of Marsa Alam's pristine environment. ... more   less
