Just spent two weeks at the oberoi, the accomodation was a large king bed suite with a seperate sitting area. There are two large flat screen TVs in each suite a private courtyard with dining area and sun …Moreloungers. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bathroom is large with shower and sunken bathroom in granite and the toiletries are replaced daily or if you run short on request. The whole complex is kept remarkably clean by the staff. The staff deserv a special mention because to a man( and woman ) they are polite helpful and above all a friendly people who make you feel welcome an liked.My wife and I both had birthdays during our stay and both had birthday cards and a cake delivered to our room.

We absolutely loved our time at the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh. This is the only place to stay in the region! The team were outstanding -- from Amit and Reda onwards. I have high standards but they were surpassed! This is really the most luxury hotel in the Red Sea region -- we saw a few others "5 star" hotels and they paled in comparison. The hospitality, decor and grounds were far and away superior at the Oberoi. It is luxurious and everything we wanted was catered for, but it had a 'home away from home' feel about it too. No one was overbearing and the superlative Oberoi culture was apparent.
We had a one-week holiday at the very end of November and taking a winter break here from chilly London was an awesome decision! It was about 30 degrees and sunny everyday. It was windy but that was ideal as it meant it was never boiling hot (I should have bought a shawl or two for the evenings though as the wind can be strong).
Our 2-year old son thoroughly enjoyed himself. We celebrated his birthday at the hotel and the team were so kind, bringing him two lovely cakes and a gift. The housekeeping staff would make awesome towel/flower sculptures everyday which we've never seen before. The housekeeping staff in general were outstanding -- great eye for detail and an exceptionally high level of cleanliness.
All the "rooms" are actually villa suites with a private outdoor dining / sunbathing terrace, plus lounge area. The location of our suite right on the beach was fantastic. The beach is pretty and you can walk on the sand, but throughout the region it is a little gritty with tiny coral bits, so don't expect powder sand anywhere.
We spent most of the mornings by the wonderful infinity pool, but the sea is also lovely and clear. We went snorkeling one day while our son was looked after by the terrific babysitter. We saw interesting sea life and coral, which was great for beginner's snorkeling, right from the hotel pier.
We only went to the children's centre one day but the play area could have kept our little one happy for ages. The library had a good selection of books and a refined ambiance. I found the best holiday book here which kept me entertained throughout the trip while my husband taught our son to swim :) Sadly I didn't get to sample the spa which looked like a haven.
My son and I usually get eaten to bits by mosquitos (eg vacationing with family in Italy always results in welts), but this was no problem at the Oberoi. I don't know if the region doesn't have many mosquitos or the hotel's evening mistings across the grounds protected us. Probably a bit of both.
The Assistant Front Office Manager, Reda was incredibly helpful in planning our excursions and making sure our stay was as perfect as possible. He supplied us with his newly created film menu -- we got to watch a few terrific films -- and the hotel supplied popcorn for our nightly screenings. Reda suggested a submarine tour which was excellent -- we highly recommend it! The camel ride on the beach was a novelty for our son and gave us some fun photos, but if it weren't for him, I'd give it a miss. If I wasn't pregnant, I would have loved to go horseriding on the beach, which was also on offer.
The food was wonderful -- breakfast was delicious and varied; we loved dining in our suite and by the pool. The main restaurant had a good selection of continental, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. A few dishes were really delicious (we like good food, but I should say we are not connoisseur foodies!) Amazingly, we didn't have even an inkling of stomach issues throughout the stay, even though I have a weak stomach. It's a testament to the hotel's cleanliness as I know tourists at other hotels frequently get ill.
The hotel's security was also brilliant and we felt completely safe. With just a 5-6 hour flight from London, this is a wonderful winter break with family, which I highly recommend. We will be back for sure!
