“My Favourite Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We have now been to this hotel for the third time and it actually just seems to get better and better. It is worth every penny to have the hotel limousine come and collect you at the airport as from the moment you step into the car your worries are over and you can just relax and enjoy. I really struggle to have anything at all poor to say about this hotel and the service is just fantastic. If you love Indian food then this hotel is also a treat for you although it would be good if the hotel turned down the air conditioning in the restaurant as this is my only small gripe as it was just too cold.

Great suites and a nice private beach and a very good dive centre to boot. I will definitely be going back and it is the perfect retreat for me for a week away from London. Enjoy as I know you will.

Room Tip: All rooms are great and just depends whether you want to be by the beach or the pool. There are non...

We have stayed at this fabulous hotel at our honeymoon .. we loved the relaxation and the very friendly staff working there.
we were treated like " PRINCE AND HIS PRINCESS ".
The food quality was very excellent , the house keeping was brilliant. transportation all over the resort by the club car was very indulging .
I will always recommend the Oberoi , Sahl Hasheesh .

This hotel is by far the best hotel i have ever stayed at in Egypt. the service was impeccable and the suites were luxurious and simple at the same time, without being extravagant. The suite we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable; with a comfy sitting area, very comfy bed, dressing room and a very pretty bathroom with a step in shower and a sunken bath tub, both are with an outdoor view. Perfect for soaking in the tub at night while gazing at the beautiful start lit sky. the outdoor area was one with a terrace and a pool, totally private. The breakfast was very good, both at the buffet and in-suite. Dinner was amazing; we had dinner by the pool side, the food was very very good and the whole ambiance was just perfect. The staff waiting on us were great, the view of the pool and beautifully lit buildings of the hotel and the mellow music all made a perfect night. I would say that what made the stay even more special were the hotel staff. They were all at an excellent standard. Each and every member of the staff was very qualified, courteous, attentive and friendly at just the right amount while respecting your privacy. i would happily recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a haven to relax or a romantic getaway.

We went to Oberoi, Sahl Hashish for our honeymoon. We enjoyed every minute of their spectacular service and activities.

To start with, from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, the staff are extremely attentive and pampered us in all ways possible. They're very polite and witty and really made us feel like royalty.

The suite was beautiful and spacious, everything is extra clean and room service replaces everything that gets finished faster than you know it. There is a dressing room, terrace for tanning and a tub for bubble baths. Since we were honeymooners, the room service placed flowers all over the room which was very thoughtful and romantic.

Transportation all over the resort is very easy and flexible, all you do is call the staff and a golf kart is at your service with the staff driving to take you back and forth to the beach, restaurants, gym, spa, suite or lobby.

The food was excellent, whether at the main restaurant or the in suite dining, they've got assortments from different cuisines and the food quality is top of the notch.

As for activities, there's a lot to do. There is diving, snorkeling, horseback riding at sunset by the beach, safari, star gazing, massage and spa etc. Our favorite was the massage, we recommend the 'couples massage' to couples, it's beyond perfect. The masseuses are extra sweet and make you feel so relaxed and happy. Any spa activity is a must try!

Our only comment is concerning the diving staff (they are not the hotel staff, they are external staff). They are a bit complacent and over friendly, they need to be more organized and professional. Other than that, everything and everyone that we dealt with was great!

We recommend Oberoi, Sahl Hashish to everyone who wants to relax and enjoy the real meaning of a five star hotel. It was truly an unbelievable experience and hopefully we can go again.

This hotel has been given a top rating and fully deserves it. The rooms are individual private suites dotted around the lovely site. They have plenty of facilities and space with even a private patio area or pool depending on your choice.

The location is on a beach with its own coral reef that is fantastic for snorkeling and diving. Staff are attentive and friendly and the evening meals by the main pool normally accompanied by live music are special. The curries are five star. The Thai Spa is a great experience and also is recommended.

For sure we will be going back. The only downside alcohol is very expensive. 300 LE for a bottle of Obelisk you have gotta be joking. Buy from Hurghada or bring from Cairo that is my recommendation.

We enjoyed our stay at the Oberoi, the service at this hotel is second to none. Our suite was kept very clean and free of mosquito or bugs. At the time we were there the hotel was very peaceful and not very busy, which made the experience even more exclusive! We enjoyed the fact that every time we came out of the water at the hotel beach we were supplied with cold water, cold towels and sun protection lotion! We went to do some diving and the service in the dive center was always superb. We had great dives (and plenty of snorkeling) at the house reef, and it didn't disappoint, there was plenty to see and sea condition is very calm, making it a very relaxing dive or snorkel ! The dive center also arranged some boat dives to the near by islands and we were very pleased with the whole experience...our boat was never full, every time we didn't have more then 8 people on board. The boat was very good and new, and the captain and dive instructors managed to drop us on sites were no other divers were around...we had the dives all to ourselves, very peaceful. Only at the end of our dives, when coming up to the waiting boat we would see "the diving crowd of Hurghada" all around us, but not for long as when in the boat the captain would move away to another empty reef ready for our next dive...they seemed to know how to dodge the "Hurghada crowd" which is very important, we don't dive to see divers!!! Mahros was our dive master during our stay and we would recommend diving with him as he is very knowledgeable, patient, funny and kind...we had good times diving with him! We would definitely recommend staying at the Oberoi, specially if you want to escape from the crowded gigantic 5* star hotels of Hurghada ! Sahl Hasheesh is a heaven compared to the busy hell of Hurghada 5* hotels!

All the trip adviser reviews are true: this is a glorious place. Peaceful, fabulous food, gorgeous snorkelling and beach. What makes it exceptional is the staff. So kind and thoughtful - sending some ginger tea to the room when my son had too much sun; arranging a trip with driver to a nearby marina and patiently answering all my silly questions. They do make you feel like a VIP guest and really there is something very gracious, intelligent and well run to the feel of the entire place. Makes for a very relaxing holiday and a real feeling of ease and luxury.
