We're back where it all began at the Marina Lodge Hotel

Marina Lodge Hotel

An old favourite returns as Emperor once again manages the centre at this diver friendly hotel. For the ultimate convenience, the good value Marina Lodge Hotel is right next to our jetty - wake up and walk onto our day boats; no transfers, no hassle! With storage, rinse facilities, classrooms and training pools back onsite, we have your needs covered so you can enjoy easy diving from your first day. A liveaboard on land, perfect!

New for 2014: Resta Club Marina View - Port Ghalib

Resta Club Marina View

This superbly located centre puts Emperor right back in the heart of Port Ghalib. This is our local HQ and where the office team work, so all first day guests will be able to meet here in the morning for check in as well as check out. We have a fully stocked dive shop with a fine range of merchandise for you to browse and buy. For guests staying here, the hotel is within easy walking distance of the Port Ghalib marina, bars, restaurants and boats. There will be complimentary regular shuttles for those who want to explore without walking.

From this centre you will want to spend most of your diving days on the daily boats due to how close they are, but feel free to add a day on our house reef too.

Emperor Divers at Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels, Port Ghalib

Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels

The dive centre is located on the beach of the Intercontinental Hotel, right at the heart of Port Ghalib. Our dive hub has equipment storage, equipment rental, rinse and dry facilities and benches 30 seconds from one of the three entry points to this magnificent house reef. The hub allows unlimited house reef diving, guided house reef diving and RIB diving to some of the least dived sites in the region, including Torombi and Torfet Ali.

If you want to boat dive from Port Ghalib, we provide complimentary transfers by zodiac every day which takes only three minutes (bus pickup on first day). Many guests purchase the unlimited house reef diving and then on some days pay an upgrade to boat and RIB diving during their stay. The best of both worlds.

Diving options:

Emperor Divers at Resta Reef & Resta Grand

Located at the Resta Reef Hotel our PADI/SSI Centre/BSAC Travel Partner has classrooms, shop, outside seating area and bar, equipment storage, kit rinse and compressors. This centre also serves guests at the 5 star Resta Grand Hotel next door which is within easy walking distance. Guests staying at the nearby Coraya Beach Resort, Lamaya Resort or Dar El Madina Hotel can also walk to Emperor's Resta dive centre by following the beach at the south of Coraya Bay. We also offer complimentary transfers from all these hotels for daily diving.

From this centre you are well poised to choose both the superb boat diving from our jetty in nearby Port Ghalib or house reef & RIB diving from the Intercontinental/Crowne Plaza Hotels. Complimentary transfers are included to both.
