The story behind Utopia Beach Club

Utopia Beach Club marks the culmination of the vision and passion of our beloved late father Serag Saad Hwaidak. As the son of Saad Hwaidak, he and his brother Mohamedy Hwaidak famously founded the first hotels in Hurghada at the North Red Sea in the1980’s. Once just a small fishing village, Hurghada is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole of Egypt.

In 1994 Mr Serag started his lifework as “The Floating Hotel” anchoring off the shore of Utopia Beach whilst the traditional buildings and rooms of the original hotel were being constructed.  Having been the first person to consider building in the Quseir area, our father was able to locate the very best bay in the area for diving. Since then this bay has gained an excellent reputation amongst professional and hobby divers as a place of outstanding natural and marine beauty with an abundance of coral and underwater life.

With its quiet surrounding away from the hustle and bustle of the North Red Sea, Utopia has now also become a peaceful haven and ideal destination for sunbathers and snorkelers.

More than 300 rooms in various categories can accommodate our guests, yet we are very proud to still provide a friendly family-like atmosphere. Whether guests stay with us for months at a time or just for a short break, they continue to return year after year.

Just as our father continued the work of our grandfather, we now endeavour to carry on our father’s dream. We would love to hear from the many guests who have long considered visiting us and we hope to continue making Utopia as a second home for past, present and future guests.

Please share with us your stories, views and dreams for the future of Utopia, or even send us a memorable picture or short message. You can contact us here
