Description and details
Diving on the Heaven Saphir in Egypt
Heaven Saphir is a diving liveaboard operating on the Red Sea. The elegant watercraft was recently renovated in 2017 to offer its passengers all the comfort necessary to discover the richness of the underwater world. This charming boat will also give you an introduction to the local culture of the region through visiting many villages along the coast.
What makes Heaven Saphir stand out among other liveaboards operating in the Red Sea is the luxurious comfort that it offers to its guests: not only the suites but also all the common spaces are spacious, tastefully decorated and equipped with all the necessities, for a unique experience. There are 2 standard cabins with twin bunk beds and 4 with twin side-by-side beds located on the lower deck, as well as 2 honeymoon suites for new weds and a luxurious executive suite perfect for a family, on the upper deck. All cabins and suites are air-conditioned and have access to private bathrooms with hot water showers, mini-bars, fridges, A/C and music players. Additionally, the suites have panoramic windows facing the sea.
Amenities on board of Heaven Saphir
On board of this spacious and intimate Liveaboard ship, the common areas have been designed for the best comfort of its passengers. On the second deck, guests can enjoy chilling in the half-shaded outdoor terrace with a bar equipped with deckchairs, bean bags and tables. Another outdoor lounge is located on the upper deck where it is good to tan and sip a cocktail while observing the different panoramas scrolling by.
The main deck inside Heaven Saphir includes the dining room and an indoor lounge. The large panoramic windows allow you to admire the landscapes of the Red Sea even when you’re inside! In addition, you will find a bar, an audio-visual entertainment system, a library and board games.
The meals served on board are as tasty as it can get. They are served buffet style, and there’s something for every taste: local and international dishes as well as appetizers, BBQ, deserts etc. All of them are made with fresh local ingredients bought the same day: our talented chef is a professional at retouching traditional dishes and reinventing them so passengers enjoy every meal. Various soft and alcoholic drinks are also at your disposal for an extra charge, and better news is that unlimited coffee, tea, water and snacks are available for free throughout your Liveaboard experience.
