Island Recreation Club

Island Recreation Club

This superb facility is the perfect place for those seeking an increasingly active lifestyle as it is packed full of new gym equipment. Alternatively, it is the ideal environment in which to unwind and socialize after a busy day whilst watching the sunset.

Its fabulous location overlooking the stunning aquamarine waters of the Red Sea, the Island Recreation Club, is set in the heart of the residential community of Safaa Island and it offers something different, be it the infinity pool with its magnificent view overlooking the sea, the beachside sand volleyball court, the fun Playland or the two large outdoor pavilions that are great for private functions such as team buildings, birthday parties, anniversaries and more.

UPDATE, December 11, 2021: Due to essential and annual-planned maintenance, the Island Recreation Club family and kids swimming pools will be closed from Sunday, January 2 to Monday, February 7
