You’ve probably read a bit about Dahab already. Here a bit of extra info and some tips from us.


We love sharing our knowledge of Dahab and the surrounding area. Whether you need advice on getting here, help choosing a dive package tips on planning a trip into the desert or just want to know the best place in town to buy groceries – all you have to do is ask the RED C team.
We’ll even lend you a local mobile phone packed with useful numbers to help you find your way around. You’ll be able to sort out the best places to eat and drink, find a reliable guide to take you into the desert for a Bedouin dinner under the stars, call a trusted taxi driver so you can go shopping for fantastic seasonal fruit and veg – and pretty much anything else you can think of during your stay.

We call it our soft concierge service … we’ve tried to think of everything you might need.

Then, of course, there’s our beautiful accommodation. Carefully placed around our swimming pools to make the most of the Red Sea and Sinai mountain views, our RED C apartments and villas have been thoughtfully designed to provide luxurious boutique accommodation without scorching your wallet. Whether you want to spend your days soaking up the sun by the pool or enjoying some of the many exhilarating sports and activities the Red Sea has to offer, we guarantee you’ll be able to unwind in unique Sinai style.
We have deliberately kept RED C small, so you can enjoy a level of privacy and personal service you wouldn’t get from a hotel. And because we want you to love Dahab as much as we do, we’d be more than happy to introduce you to the town – or show you a different side to it if you’ve been before.
If you have any questions benefit from our local knowledge and feel free to contact us! More information on accommodationspecial offers and deals …

Dom, a barrister from London, started living in Dahab in 2003 after falling in love with the town while visiting a friend. He promised himself one year working as a dive professional – and never left.

Recently, Dom has been teaching professional-level courses, training new instructors – and teaching his young daughter to swim.
