Since 2003 Red Sea Relax has been providing diving and hotel services from our beach side Diving Resort in Dahab. Professionalism, safety and fun- all within a relaxing family environment are fundamental principles that bring our guests back year after year.

 2017 marks an important year for us with our debut into the Dive Safari world. It also represents a new opportunity to provide a greater range of outstanding diving itineraries for our guests.

At Red Sea Relax we understand that you work hard for your holiday- and that this should be the highlight of your year. We on our side understand it our duty to work hard- and to make it the best week of your year!

We also believe strongly that everyone should have the right to enjoy access to the glory of the underwater world and so the keywords are quality and affordability! Unlike many other providers- who offer either one of the other- at Red Sea Relax we strive to provide both!

We very much hope you will as delighted with the newly renovated Mermaid Excelsior as we are- and we look forward to welcoming you soon!
