Various re area around oberoi

We have booked a holiday at The Oberoi & would be grateful to receive information re :-

1. are there any shops within walking distance where we could purchase holiday essentials? even canned drinks, crisps, wine,beers etc?

2. for a change of scene, are there any good restaurants within walking distance of the oberoi?

3. What dive sites are the highlight of the region near to the Oberoi?

We eagerly await your replies and thank you in anticipation

Best regards

You will find the Oberoi is pretty secluded. It's probably around 3km from the road entrance to the actual Hotel.

There are no facilities outside the hotel area, the closest are around 2 - 3km away from the road entrance.

You can go into Sahl Hasheesh, which is beautiful to visit, but only has a couple of restaurant/bars, and handful of shops. 4km

You'll probably find all you need within the hotel, but it will obviously be more expensive than you will find in Hurghada itself, which is approx 17km away.

It is known to be an excellent hotel.

The hotel is one of the best in the area but it is isolated and as such it will have all of the shops etc on site. There are no places to buy beer etc apart from the duty free areas. There is a compound out by the Nile hospital where you can stock up but I thought the Oberio was super all inclusive anyway. We have an apartment in Sahl Hasheesh and we use a company called Cheers to get stuff delivered. sahl is worh a visit and I think the hotel would take you round in a curtesy bus. Hurgahda Marina has some decent places to eat and drink. El Gouna on a Friday night is really good with loads to do. You are also close to Senzo Mall which is a large shopping outlet open until 1.00a.m. - again the hotel will get you there and back. Enjoy Egypt!
