Sunrise Grand Select Arabian Beach Resort
Ranked #63 of 231 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This particular trip was for my 1st wedding anniversary, and we went for 11 superb nights on the All Inclusive package. My wife and I chose Sharm el Sheikh having heard from friends that it was a great place to go, and were not concerned by all the media flim-flam about troubles in Cairo etc (it's over 5hrs drive away). Upon arrival the Hotel Manager Hany and his staff were very welcoming and provided us fresh fruit cocktails whilst filling out the hotel paperwork. It is beautifully decorated to a high standard.

This hotel opened in 2012 and is already #20 on Trip Advisor - this will not last, It should be nearer the top 10!!! All the staff we encountered were really friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The main restaurant has extensive buffet choices. All restaurants are included in the AI option the Italian, French, Indian, Mongolian and Thai except the 'Felucca' fish restaurant which is an extra cost (can I add that it has breathtaking views of the Red Sea)!. There are other bars/rooms that you must go to such 'Churchills' bar, the 'Mayfair' tea room and 'Gold Pub'.
Our room was a double in the 'Chamomile' block (right side of the resort) on the 1st floor.
Don't be put off by the steps around the resort, as there are buggies available to take you wherever you want. If you encounter any issues whilst there, just go to see the help desk they will sort issues as soon as possible.

I want to thank the likes of Moustafa, Marco and Ahmed in the restaurants, Paulo on the Island Bar, Karem (our room servicer) and Samy, my gym motivator!!! As well as the 'Real Animation' team, Ushe, Tessa, Oksanya and Paula, who were relentless in getting my wife & I involved in the daily activities! The hotel runs a complimentary shuttle bus to Soho Square area (near the magnificent Royal Savoy Resort) every evening, so take advantage of this when there.

Another tip is if you book your room through your specified agent be it Medhotels, Blue Sky Travels or Hotels4u... Make sure you only go on excursions provided by the above as they are legitimate, safe and totally EXCELLENT!!! I highly recommend the 'Golden Sharm Experience' but there are so many to choose from, we didn't have enough budget to do them all. Please do not be fooled or duped by individuals outside of the hotel offering 'bargain' tours. You will regret it in the long run!

Sunrise Grand Select - Arabian Beach Resort has great things ahead!

Room Tip: Go for a Sea View Room (1st or 2nd floor), you will not regret it. If you are feeling flush, wait ti...

Just wanted to share anyone worried about visiting Red Sea area Sharm El Sheikh - I had a holiday for 1 week 9th-16th Oct - my first time to Egypt and to an all inclusive resort. The Sunrise Arabian was excellent, for a resort only 7 months old yes its very new and a few minor service issues but on a whole, a lovely resort. Not lively in the evening, but suited myself for a chilled out holiday. Very nice decor and standard of finish to rooms. Buffer very good quality in my opinion better than the A La Carte.
No problems with safety in Sharm, I'd go back in a minute and would certainly recommend the Sunrise

My wife and I have just returned from two weeks of spoiled bliss in a hotel that is way underrated in its position among other Sham Hotels. Accommodation, food, facilities and it's friendly, smiling and helpful staff are its assets. No one should be left unmentioned in the success of our fortnight's holiday. From the cleaner of our room, the pool and beach lifeguards, the restaurant waiters, the bar staff, the gardeners, the receptionists and those that walk around with a pan and brush sweeping up to ensure all holiday makers have a spotless environment. The smiles and greetings from them all are worth the visit alone. We loved the beach, the relaxation pool, the Thai, Indian and Italian restaurants, the welcome cocktail and cold flannel on arrival, the artistic work with room towels - in fact - start to finish - SUPERB! Will be back? You bet!

Room Tip: Trouble getting about? Choose close to Oasis Pool. Otherwise - anywhere!

We were moved here from another hotel so only spent 5 days here, but what a 5 days. We arrived to lovely reception staff, cold towels and cocktails, and given a tour then shown to our rooms. What rooms we were in magnolia block above the swim up pools with views of the relax pool and sea. The rooms were clean modern with all you need to hand. Beds were comfortable and the cleaning staff did a great job. There are a lot of steps so we tended to use the slope at the back off the accommodation blocks which was easier on the legs. The pools were all excellent with the pool attendants who always ready with your towels. The food was fantastic we ate in several of the restaurants and the main buffet and were always greeted by lovely staff who could not do enough to help, and always there with a friendly greeting. Mizo and the animation team worked really hard encouraging people to join in, but if you didn't want to they would all come and chat to you. We enjoyed chatting and joking with lots of the staff. This is a 5 star hotel but more importantly it has 5 star staff. We will be returning soon.

My wife and I Returned from 2 weeks in this beautiful hotel yesterday, everything to do with the holiday was fantastic from the moment we checked in right through to the moment we left.

The hotel is first rate, spotlessly clean and in a wonderful location right on the beach.The food was great with enough choice for everyone and every taste from Thai to French and Indian to Mongolian with buffet restaurant also available each night. Of course you can have everything, nicest hotel, best food but if you don't have the people to provide the service then you don't have anything. I'm happy to say the service provided by the staff at the hotel from the animation team to the waiters and everyone else was fantastic. Special thanks to Paola, Marco and Ahmed in le Pergola and Ahmed on the beach who treated us like royalty for a fortnight.

Highly recommended, we will be going back!

We spend 12 nights at this hotel.
There was low occupance due to the problems in cairo.
The service was adjusted, but never the less, everything went smoot.
e.g. Not all the restaurants were open every night, but you visit all over a whole week periode.

Service was inpecable. Always friendly and good quality.
The quality of the a la carte restaurants is amazing. e.g.The thai restaurant is a thai woman as a cook. I was in thailand for 3 weeks and the food tasted as it should.

There ar still some works going on, but it doesn't disturb the guests at all

As a location, it is not in the centre of naama bay, but every night there is a free busdrive to it and soho square. I prefere to be in a relax environment by the day time. A taxi can be ordered in the hotel with very budget friendly prices.

Two minor point. The buffet at the main restaurant could be even better if they use the grill and the pizza oven on a frequent basis.
Second, the shows are not that amazing and animation could be better. They have a great animation team that is very kind and communicates a lot with the customers, they should use them more in the shows in stead of hiring artists

Do not hesitate to book this hotel, its brandnew, and a very high prize quality rate.
We met a couple from England wich had stayed 5 times in sharm in different hotels and they said they would never change again....

Till the last minute they did there very best to help you, even when leaving the hotel.

Room Tip: The standard rooms have the advantage of lying close by the main restaurant and bar

Hi..my husband and I have just returned on (17th) of October from a lovely week here. We were really impressed from the time we entered the foyer. It is beautifully decorated to a high standard. Everyone is really friendly and can't do enough for you. You have so many choices of places to eat. The main restaurant has extensive choices. There was a head waiter A Salam that gave excellent service. We went to celebrate my 40th birthday and we booked into the Thai restaurant and at the end of our meal we were presented with a beautiful birthday cake. All restaurants are included in the AI Italian.. Indian.. Mongolian. except the fish restaurant. Our room was huge with 2 double beds and a sofa. Your toiletries are replenished daily so no need to bring shampoo conditioner shower gel. We went snorkelling everyday and felt really safe with a lifeguard on duty everyday. The beach guys were great especially Eddie Murphy ha ha. Don't be put off by people saying about steps there are buggies available to take you wherever you want. We didn't need them as the gardens are lovely to walk through. Go shopping in the shops across the road the copies there are really cheap and excellent quality. ( Dr Dre headphones £9 and on return we can't tell the difference to the real ones. The bag Shop on the resort was really good value I bought 4 bags and trust me I know my bags these were the cheapest and best quality I have ever seen. We loved it here and could go on and on but if you are contemplating going then just go you won't be disappointed. If you have any issues while there just go to see the help desk they will sort any problems straight away. we had an issue with our air con (my fault for setting it wrong) but when I rang they took 10 min to come and sort it for me. So don't come home and complain give them a chance to sort it while your there. They really want to make sure you have a fab time.. We are returning next year with more members of our family. Thank you everyone at the resort you made our holiday one to remember..
