One of the best in the Middle East
My wife and I have lived in the region for nearly five years and we can say that the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh is among the best five-star experiences we have enjoyed. The hotel is stunningly beautiful, located on a secluded private beach with fantastic amenities and luxury suites available to all guests, but the real gem was the staff -- at the front desk, the restaurant and bar, as well as the room attendants. Everyone was super attentive and friendly, always willing to help or make our experience more enjoyable. I want to thank Mahmoud for keeping our room immaculate and Alaa and Khalil (among many others at the restaurant) for being extremely attentive to our needs. When we made a special meal request, Chef Suman ensured that it happened despite the lack of ingredients in Egypt, while Khalil at the restaurant worked extra hard to get the meal to us. You'd be hard pressed to find a better restaurant in Egypt than the hotel's restaurant -- the offerings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were a wonderful mix of Egyptian, Indian, and continental; a varied but delicious menu. The hotel can arrange a COVID test before your departure -- it was very simple and removed a huge source of stress for us. The hotel does a fantastic job with its COVID mitigation measures (sanitizers, frequent temperature checks, masks for all staff and guests). Finally the dive center (Dive Pro Academy) was fantastic and the house reef a hidden gem of Hurghada and something the Oberoi should be very proud of. It is a healthy and vibrant reef just off the hotel's pier. Huge kudos to the hotel and its staff (We're actually still at the resort now, but we are enjoying our stay so much, we wanted to write a review before we left.)
Family Holiday in Egypt
In order to escape the pandemic blues in Europe we booked a week long family holiday at the Oberoi in Sahl Hasheesh. The location of the hotel is a bit outside and away from the other hotels in town, which is great as a bit more secluded. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by the front desk team and the general manager and after a quick check in were showm around the premises before taken to rooms by buggy. Superb service! The rooms are super spacious with their own courtyard and living area. Beach and pool looked very nice, but due to cold wind we did not go swimming much. As such we booked amazing excursions arranged by the hotel. Fantasic experiences. The food in the restaurants is outstanding with lots of Euorpean, local and Indian food. The staff is very attentive and friendly - pretty much all remembered our names and preferences. Extremely practical is the dive center on hotel grounds where we booked a great boat trip for the day. All in all a really great week in an outstanding hotel with impeccable service. Highly recommended!
Exceptional Beach Resort for any Kind of Trip
I stayed here for my honeymoon. Everything about this hotel was exceptional for us: Check-in, staff, food, deliver, plating, views, scenery, cleanliness, quietness and facilities. They went to great lengths to create romantic experiences for us. Decoration in the rooms, a private dinner with the most exhilarating views and the special "Khalil Tea" at the end. I will totally recommend this resort!
Wonderful elegant resort with excellent service
We came back to the Oberoi after 10 years and found it freshly painted, with incredible views and well maintained gardens, pools, etc. One would have thought that with the difficult times Egypt has been going thru for the past 10 years, the hotel would have deteriorated but the Oberoi has invested and the warmth of the staff continues to be incredible. They made an Egyptian kyte for our children, they cater to every wish with a smile, they remember your name within 30 mins of check-in. From the front desk (Khalifa) to the staff at the restaurants (Ahmed, Mohammed, El Sayed and countless more), everything is perfect. The food is incredible and varied. The deserts are out of this world. We will come back again very soon. Having been to plenty of Oberoi’s in India, this maintains the super high standard. This is a gem in Egypt.
The property is very nice and well located with a reef right in front of the hotel if scuba diving is your thing. It’s mine, so no complaints there. Whether you choose to do scuba or snorkeling you will not be disappointed. We saw dolphins, turtles, lion fish, rock fish, etc. Rooms are very nice and the staff very helpful. However, we were disappointed with the quality of the food and speed of service. They do take their time. Hurghada in itself is purely a beach and diving destination (weather permitting). There is nothing else to do or see. We did an excursion to the desert and an Oasis. That was nice, but nothing earth shattering. The quad excursions or sand buggies are a tourist trap and not worth it. My kids loved it, but that’s because it was their first time to drive a sand buggy.
