The Jumeirah Beach Hotel-- designed in the shape of an enormous wave on the beaches of the Arabian Gulf-- has just scored top marks from PADI (the Professional Association of Diving Instructors) for its Pavilion Dive Centre. Recognized as a 5 Star Career Development Centre, PADI's highest rating for Dive Centres, the Pavilion Dive Centre stands alone in the Middle East as the only one of its kind. This means that non-diving professionals can now get training and certification as PADI instructors-- with the first Instructor Development course of 2009 starting on Friday, April 3rd.
Whether a seasoned diver or beginner, guests of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel will love checking out the purpose-built coral reef just 2 kilometers offshore, an amazing world of shipwrecks and exotic marine life. The Pavilion Dive Centre provides everything you need to make the very most of your underwater adventure. They even take trips to Oman.
