Roots: a Secluded Diving Spot in the Red Sea

Roots El QuesirThe best diving sites are the ones that are remote, quiet and untouched by commercialism.

Where exotic fishes, marine life and glorious coral reefs can flourish. This can be found in the small, luxury Roots resort with its spectacular beach, clear blue skies and enclosed diving sites located minutes away from Marsa Alam Airport.

A stone throw away from the Red Sea, Roots is renowned for being its ‘Jewel’. Many visit Roots time and time again for the stunning views, temperatures of 21°C to 40°C, warm waters and secluded nature.

Roots is a wonderful beach front hotel that provides a choice of deluxe stone roof chalets and eco huts. It has been awarded ‘Certificate of Excellence’ for 2013 and 2014 by Tripadvisor for its high quality service, natural settings and relaxing atmosphere.

Divers, of all levels and ranges, from shore diving, zodiac diving and hard boat diving can enjoy the calm and isolated nature of Roots Luxury Resort. There are many opportunities to see the rich sea life, vast grass meadows, challenging wall dives and precious marine life.roots 5

The Pharaoh Dive Camp is Roots’ main diving centre and its success is down to the breath-taking sights of shore and sea and personable customer service.

Children from as young as eight-years-old can learn how to dive or go to the Underground Discovery dive and enrol for PADI Open Water courses.

Dedicated divers can enjoy the water temperatures of the Red Sea, which can reach up to 30°C and is said to have more than 80 diving sites.

Pharaoh Dive Club also organises midnight diving sessions where qualified divers can meet and socialise with other divers. Other renowned diving sites are accessible by boat like Abu Dahab and Elphinstone, and Roots’ nearest town, El Quseir is also brimming with authentic Egyptian culture, which is only a taxi ride away.
