UCPA Hotel (El Gouna)

 

An Egpytian tourist resort location 20km north of Hurghada. Situated on the Red Sea Riviera, the warm climate year-round makes it a great place for winter sun, where kitesurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling and SUP are some of the popular sports to practice.

Rooms

  • Rooms are twin or double
  • Rooms are en suite with a small terrace or balcony

Dining

  • Breakfast is an international style buffet served in the hotel. 
  • Lunch depends where you are and what you are doing! If you are scuba diving, it is prepared on the boat (usually by a Chef). If you are kite surfing then lunch is provided in the kite school restaurant. 
  • Dinner is either in the hotel or in other restaurants in the local area which the centre has partnerships with.

Entertainment

Evening entertainment is slightly more limited at El Gouna than other UCPA centres, but there can be Arabic lessons and presentations on local culture. However please note these can vary in availability week to week.

History

UCPA is more than 40 years old, and was originally set-up by the French government to encourage young people to enjoy the outdoors.It is now a "not for profit" organisation with all profits being put back into refurbishing the centres.

The ethos of sport is still first on the agenda, but the instructors and centre staff don't forget that it is still your holiday.

    • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level.

    • UCPAs are like an upmarket hostel. However, they are always comfortable and if you want to meet people, the rooms of 4-6 are a great way of doing so. Even better is most of the UCPAs have some twin rooms...

    • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!

    • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.
