Resta Club Marina View - Port Ghalib
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.

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 The Palace and Sahara Sands Hotels, Port Ghalib
Our dive hub is located on the beach of the The Palace Hotel, right at the heart of Port Ghalib. It 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.
