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.
