Life in the depths of the sea.

A travel blog entry by sheela.beckley


"Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;" Psalm 96:11 As I sit on the cliffs high above the waters, I am overwhelmed by all the different shades of blue and the beauty that lies in front of me! The Red Sea sparkles like jewels in the midday sun. Around the waters there is only golden, dark brown desert that reaches into ...

... of water in earth for pirates and terrorists, at night all lights on the boat were concealed aside from basic navigation, and all security crew were posted around the lower decks with high-powered water cannons at ready, and night-time infrared goggles, they took it very seriously. The weather is constant, still BHot and high humidity, my little black pigmy missus here says it's heaven...... Tomorrow the port of Aqua, Jordon, and off by bus inland though the ...

financial backing to develop the engine and the patent was actually sold to Germany before the Second World War. Fortunately both countries just failed to produce functional jet fighters before the end of the war.

Little Brother

A travel blog entry by scubanut


Moved to Little Brother at about 05:00 in the morning! Briefing at around 06:30 then off in a Rib for our first dive along the East side of the island. Saw a couple of Threshers, a small White Tipped Reef and a Grey Reef Shark. All managed to get back to the boat quite ...

The Brothers

A travel blog entry by scubanut


Arrive at Big Brother in the early hours of the morning and were woken at 05:30!! Our first dive was on the SE Plateau, a very mild current running south along the reef to plateau, dropped down to about 34M, hung around in the blue and we're rewarded with a beautiful Thresher shark gracefully swimming by. After a few minutes hanging around we started back along the reef wall and we're escorted by a very friendly Napoleon ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Lamaya Resort Marsa Alam



    Returned last week from a week at the Lamaya, partner is now only just recovering from the upset stomach which everyone we spoke to seemed to be suffering from in one form or another. The hotel restuarant food was very mixed but there was usually something vaguely familiar to be found if only pizza/burger from the beach bar (though I was never sure of the animal source for the meat).

    Un posto magnifico


    Sono tornato da 2 gg da un soggiorno di una settimana dall'Hotel Lamaya di Marsa Alam in Egitto!!!

    Beautiful hotel great staff


    I just came back yesterday from a weeks stay in the lamaya.

    Lamaya Beach Review


    We have just returned after 2 weeks at the Lamaya. Even though I wouldn't consider it a 5* resort (more like 4*) I have rated above average as there's factors to consider such as where you are in the world, the heat etc and what we paid for the holiday, even though my hubby was ill for at least half of the time.

    Great Place!!


    I am a 22 year old woman and went away for the first time with me old dad. We literally just wanted good weather and a relaxing time.

    Snorkelling great and the hotel was excellent


    Just got back from Marsa Alam on 31/5 after having a fantastic 2 weeks. The hotel is set in a complex which houses 5 hotels around a coral reef edged bay. The added bonus of staying at the Lamaya was the jetty which streached straight into the heart of the bay from which you could snorkel.

    FYI Excellent


    Just returned from a week at the Iberotel, Lamaya Resort, between 03 May and 10 May. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean, facing the sea. It would be difficult to find anything to complain about: the weather was very kind to us, the sea just right for swimming in at 25 C, the food of a very high quality (although the breakfast was aimed towards the Germans and Italians). The staff very responsive and accommodating. The variety of food on offer was outstanding however because its a Muslim country do not expect any pork.

    Great Rooms


    Returned early hours of Saturday morning from a week at this hotel/resort. One thing to watch our for are the Russians/Eastern Europeans staying here. Rumour has it they only paid $100 for the week!!! Should be interesting during the height of the holiday season when the British begin to arrive in bigger numbers. The brochure states 389 rooms of which max 20 occupied by British!!!

    Stomach upset


    returned last friday from hotel lamaya, marsa alam, be aware that you will almost be sure of getting a stomach upset as a lot of us brits did, immodium won't solve the problem take something stronger. the food in the hotel although of good quality was of international cuisine!!! therefore it tended to be aimed at the german clientelle. lots of fun with towels around the pools also. you cannot access the sea directly from the beach. staff and rooms were brilliant. excursions brilliant. if the hotel could just adapt the food it would be definite return visit for me.

    Great Hotel


    All that has already been said about the Lamaya Beach Resort in Reviews and Forums is true.
