Club Med will shortly be opening a new hotel at Taba Heights in Egypt. The 385 room 5 star hotel will have its soft opening mid November and be fully operational by the 4th December 2010. Club Med specializes in family all-inclusive holidays mainly for the French and Italian market. This new 70 acre site known as Sinai Bay Resort will also have an on-site diving and watersports centre run by Red Sea Waterworld. Operations Manager, Andrew Day, said that the dive centre will be open for business in November to coincide with the hotels soft opening. Matt Reston has been appointed to the role of Dive Centre Manager. Matt, who has previous experience with Club Med Resorts, will be heading up a team of between 6 and 10 full-time staff. The hotel is located in a secluded bay with its own 550-metre long sandy beach. The accompanying coral reef is ideal for snorkeling, try-dives and diver training.
Red Sea Waterworld has been associated with Taba Heights since 2000. They run an extremely professional operation in a large purpose built facility located next to the International Marina. They have 3 purpose built dive boats and go diving 365 days a year.
Taba’s clear, calm waters are perfect for beginners through to intermediates. This is also a haven for underwater photographers with plenty of macro subjects including the amazing frogfish. With only 1 dive boat per site there is never any overcrowding. Taba Heights is just relaxed hassle free diving at its best.
