“Absolutely Divine!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I spent my christmas this year with my mum at the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh and think I might have started a new family tradition! Who needs stuffy or too cold Uk houses, hours in the kitchen cooking christmas lunch and overloaded christmas trees? lets all head to the pool or the beach and relax instead! The resort is well laid out, spacious and airy but still managing to be warm and friendly, it's not easy to have both and the staff manage to get it just right! The suites are beautiful, perfectly laid out with a lovely bathroom and are really spacious! The food is delicious! Some of the menu items were a wee bit gourmet for my mums rather bland pallate but we only had to ask for a variation to suit her needs and it was never an issue, we really did feel spoilt! Oh yes, if you like going to the spa whilst on holiday then the spa here, although small really is world class!
Thanks Again!!!!!!!!!

Myself and my two children stayed there last week, and it is one of the best vacations we have had. We have travelled to many places in and outside of Egypt and this is by far a great place to go to. If you love to relax and stay in quiet places, this is definitely the place to visit.... a bit pricey but worth every dime.

We have just returned from an 8 night stay at this fabulous hotel, ideally positioned right on the Red Sea on so much land you are never going to feel a small cog in a big wheel - in fact the very opposite.

The setting of the hotel is wonderful and the accommodation is first class all the way. Add to this an amazing (but not over whelming) service from all the staff - nothing is too much trouble - and you have the perfect recipe for a brilliant holiday.

My husband and I had had a very busy year in 2012 and not managed to get away at all. This week in Hurghada has given just us the lift we needed to come home and get back to work - but with a smile on our faces and the energy to do a good job!

I would rate this hotel as being one of the best I have ever stayed in. The suite was large, airy and beautifully set out. Little luxuries like pillows you melted into, sunken bath and the most attentive staff make you feel spoilt and special. There is no need to leave the hotel as everything was there. The restaurant was excellent and the pool large enough to burn off the calories. Gouda made the best cocktails and Saleh at the poolside was a fountain of information and nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: I thought the suites were better value than the Presidential suites.

We have now stayed here twice. Staff and facilities are great. The Indian restaurant is a must.
The reef is accesable from the jetty, but I suggest you use a lifejacket as water can be choppy. Lots of nice fish on view. We are not into sightseeing, so this is an ideal rest and relax resort for us. We paln to return in a year or so. We visited in Feb 2010 last time (not 2012)

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms with plunge pool are great but for the sun you need the beach or main pool

Thank you for your continued patronage of The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh. We now have over 25% of our guests who return to stay with us. Zaafran, our Indian specialty restaurant is certainly a highlight of the resort and a must try for all our guests. We look forward to your third visit.

What a awesome property in a awesome location. This is the only real five star resort in the entire Hurgadha area. All the other resorts are at best 3 stars. The hotel is all suites and individual cottages. Most with their private pools and all have the most beautiful view of the Red Sea. They have a 1km long beach which is almost entirely a coral reef. The reef is one of the best I have ever seen and great for snorkelling and diving. The hotel has a great dive center and the guys there are very experienced and helpful. The food at the hotel is excellent and they offer a great selection of sea food and other world flavours. The best part is that privacy the property offers. The staff is always around to help but now in your face. No one will disturb you and everyone will work their best to ensure you have a wonderful time.

Room Tip: any room is good

A great choice for those who want the luxury and the benefits of being on the Red Sea without the crowds and annoyances of the resorts such as Sharm el-Sheikh.

The hotel is spread out along a large stretch of beach and this affords ample space between sun-loungers and between rooms - creating a feeling of privacy.

Snorkeling and diving are obviously very popular. There is a house reef which can be accessed directly of the jetty and has a wide array of wildlife. Two things to note, the jetty is home to a family of unaggressive lionfish (they gave me quite the surprise) and during the full moon the sea is densely populated with harmless jellyfish (these can be bothersome to some).

All suites decorated in a modern style with hints of arabesque and are quite lovely.

This is a great resort to relax for a few a few days.

Room Tip: One close to the beach.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing us over the resorts in Sharm el Sheikh. The peace and tranquility of the resort and the 850 meter long beach are two of the most significant factors that makes us more enjoyable than Sharm. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the snorkelling. We look forward to your next visit.
