“Fabulous holiday in Hurghada”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

I stayed at the Oberoi a few weeks ago and can't fault it. We stayed in a villa with pool which was great and so luxurious. The pools are a really good size and very private, and the suites are gorgeous with large bathrooms featuring sunken baths and such comfortable beds.

The service here is fantastic without being over-bearing, the staff as really friendly and will always notice when you might need something (eg suncream or a bottle of iced water when you're on the beach).

I will definately be coming back to the Oberoi again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Room Tip: If you can it's definately worth upgrading to a Pool Villa.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review. We benefit from being the only all suite luxury resort in this part of the world contributing to the suite sizes being big and a feeling of space that pervades the resort. The Grand Suites with pool are the most popular category especially as we heat them during thses cooler months. We look forward to many more visits.
Best regards,

This was our fifth visit to the Oberoi Sahl Haseesh, which with the world at our feet to choose from, is a compliment to the hotel and staff in itself.
From the minute we were met at the airport by the hotel's private Mercedes, we felt immediately relaxed, and this was enhanced upon arrival at the hotel, by the welcome from all the reception / guest relations staff.
The hotels design and grounds are still a delight to view and make you feel like you have found an oasis in a desert.
The suites are elegant private and spacious, and are tended to by the staff with great personal pride and attention to all details.The bed one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in !
Whether eating in your suite's own courtyard, or any of the restaurants the food was always of excellant standard, and the service and attention much improved over our last visit in early 2010. This must reflect well upon the change of management and the new standards being introduced.
Our thanks to Dhiren Pereira, the General Manger, not only for his personal attention and time he shared with us, but also for the innovations he has introduced, making an already great hotel even more special.
If you are considering this hotel don't think about it....JUST BOOK IT !!

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing, the superior deluxe are closer to the beach.

It was the 5th time we went to the Oberoï. Again it was a fantastic holiday in this superb resort. The suites offer everything you can dream of. The sea is at your feet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is great. Snorkeling and diving is no problem. There is a diving centre. The service is a hundred percent.
We will certainly go again.

Room Tip: They are all the same.

Once you have made the journey through the mass uncontrolled sprawl of Hurghada you will know you have picked the right hotel when you arrive at the Oberoi.

The hotel is situated on a rather hilly section of land offering beautiful uninterrupted views of the Red Sea. The Arabic style buildings and manicured grounds are laid out as to give as much privacy as possible to guests, and the suites are well equipped and clean. We stayed in a deluxe suite and found it very spacious. There is ample lighting, a good selection of pristine towels and quality toiletries, not to mention 2 televisions and a lovely outside courtyard with sunbeds and dining table - totally secluded.

The food is average in comparison to many hotels we have stayed at and the menu selections a little monotonous. The service extremely slow by western standards and a little disorganised at times. The wine selection is limited, although reasonably priced and everything we ordered was available. The breakfast selection is good with something for everyone.

Not being pool people we cannot comment, however it was always immaculately clean and has some of the properties best views of the Red Sea. The pergola restaurant maybe invades sunbathers privacy a little as it is located directly on the poolside with sunbeds almost adjacent to tables in places.

The beach was nicely laid out with sunbeds, canopies and wind shields at regular intervals affording privacy, however for a 5* property this should have been much cleaner. There was an abundance of cigarette ends around most of the sunbed areas and the beach furniture was showing signs of distress and poor repair work. The complimentary water, cold towels and factor 25 sun lotion were a nice gesture. Beach towels were readily available and in excellent condition.

The beach heads directly onto the house reef which we found in a poor condition. It was sad to see the abundance of plastic bags, bottles an other debris amongst the corals, a constant reminder of the nearby Hurghada. Although staff kept the beach as clean as possible, prevailing currents ensure there is no lack of litter being washed up onto the beach. There is good snorkelling from the jetty, however watch for the missing step with protruding metal which is dangerous.

To sum it up - a good hotel which with a little more attention to detail could be an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of each block afford a little more privacy.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review and your valuable comments.
I would like to respond to your feedback as below:
- Our main restaurant has a daily changing menu on a 8 day cycle which means that no dish is repeated during your stay. In addition, we have a daily Middle Eastern menu. Our Indian restaurant Zaafran offers a dining alternative in Indian specialty cuisine. Given the above, we feel that the menu on offer does offer a variety to our guests. In addition, we are flexible to offer items off the menu due the size of our hotel.
- The wine selection throughout Egypt is limited due to the high customs duty on imported alcohol.
- I do apologise for the slowness in service you experienced and can assure you that it is an aberration from our normal high standards.
- Your comment on the cleanliness on the beach has been addressed with the concerned personnel. Our beach boys patrol the area throughout the day to pick up any rubbish that comes in with the tide. Our dive centre personnel dive once a week to clean the reef of all plastic.
- We are in the process of polishing all our sunbeds. We do this every quarter due to the salt water being particular harsh on wood.
- I will personally address the missing step on the jetty.

The reef in front of the hotel is magnificent and the colours and marine life rivals other dive places in the world.

I do hope we can see you again at our resort to show you our true high standards of service that we are known for.

Best regards,

Dhiren Pereira

The service at The Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh is second to none. We stayed here last month to celebrate our wedding anniversary- we had an amazing experience. The entire team at The Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh are extremely helpful and very kind who took very good care of us. A beautiful hotel with a lovely team of genuine and nice people.

Nothing was too much trouble at this hotel. If a meal that we wanted wasn’t on the menu it was prepared for us. If there was something that wanted in our room, it was sent to us. They even went to the trouble of preparing my Karva Chaut meal (Hindu fast) and freshly delivered this to my room at 4.30am.

The rooms are fantastic and most of which are beach facing. The hotel has a small but great Spa offering relaxing treatments. The Bar is opening until very late with a fantastic selection of alcohol. The hotel has two main restaurants Indian and continental. The Indian food was amazing thanks for Chefs Chandra, Aditya & Arjun who are from India. However we were a little disappointed with the variety/selection of food available on the non Indian menu; although as mentioned they were more than happy to prepare anything else that we required which was great service to experience. This was our 3rd stay at an Oberoi hotel and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The only negative that would say is that the hotel only offers a bed and breakfast board, not half board which was a bit of a shame.

This is a definitely a hotel that I would return to and recommend to anyone especially if you are looking for a quiet relaxing and luxurious stay. Thanks the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh for a memorable and relaxing trip. A listening hotel.

Having stayed at other another Oberoi hotel, and reading the reviews here we thought we knew what to expect. Certainly the welcome and the initial attention to detail were perfect. The room itself was beautiful, large, and pristine.
The setting was gorgeous and the grounds and public areas beautifully kept. So what wasn't perfect?
Mainly the service in the main restaurant, it was slow and inefficient and despite the courtesy and good humour of all the staff, it just wasn't up to scratch, particularly at breakfast time. The other thing was there were several inconsistencies regarding service generally, so no major complaints, but just not up to the usual Oberoi perfection.
