This small, laid-back dive resort is on a wonderful, sandy stretch of beach. Older rooms are spacious, while the newest wing (Nakhil Dreams) is made up of cute wooden bungalows, each with a mezzanine bedroom area. Both room categories have a contemporary style not found in other hotels at this price point along the coast. All have sea views, but you can also enjoy the views day or evening from Bedouin-style seating areas on the beach. The atmosphere is rather like a beachside country club. Owner Samer Aly is an underwater photographer, raconteur, and a great source of knowledge about the area.
