This is the first time I travel without my husband to a beach resort. I could fully enjoy few days of relax, Yoga and getting spoiled at their outstanding SPA. I had few massages and they all were wonderful. The staff is wonderful, well trained and very professional. Your waiter will remember your preferred food for breakfast, making sure you get everything you wish directly from the galley. During my first stay in 2009 I did not enjoy the service this much. This time everything was perfect, from the warm welcome by the reception team, to the outstanding services from the room attendant. This Hotel is perfect for single travellers, couples and families. Hopefully soon tourism is up in Egypt, its a safe and wonderful country to travel too. I will go back to the Oberoi soon with my husband to spend few more days.

We have just returned from a wonderful break at the Oberoi.
The hotel is beautifully designed and maintained, the staff are delightful, and nothing was too much trouble.
If you are looking for complete relaxation in a lovely environment this is the hotel for you.
We will certainly return!

My husband and I decided as it was our last night in Egypt we would go somewhere a little nicer than where we were staying. We called the Oberoi and made our reservation, from that moment on nothing was too much trouble. They sent a car at the agreed time and from the moment we arrived we had what seemed like our own team of people to ensure every whim was dealt with. We shared the mezzo platter to start that was just scrummy, I then had the lobster my husband had lamb nether of us was disappointed. Unfortunately we were to full for desert but that looked scrummy. As far as pricing goes we didn't spend any more than if we went out to eat back home and keep in mind you are in Egypt with the exception of the wine which is expensive wherever you go. The car was added to our bill and for a 15minute trip was 5.00gbp. Highly recommended.

Just had a wonderful week of winter sun at the Oberoi in Hurghada. Absolutely first class hotel. Beautiful setting, fantastic and very spacious accommodation with private terrace and stunning bathroom. All very relaxing - just what was needed in mid-February - . The service was impeccable and very personal from all of the staff - they could not have been more helpful and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Superb spa for ultimate pampering and very high quality food. Not much to do in Hurghada but then again we did not want to leave the hotel! We shall be returning next year for another blissful week.

Room Tip: Well worth getting a room with a sea view.

Just returned from 1 week at the Oberoi. Accommodation is fabulous with your own private walled garden for sunbathing. Best hotel in Hurghada, so you pay for this. Cannot fault this hotel, the food, drink & staff, are all first class. Quite windy this time of year, and by 4.30 daily, it was freezing!!!!! No complaints at all 'so well done Oberoi' and a special thanks to the staff member who went above and beyond the call of duty in getting my shoe mended. Be prepared for early nights, as nothing to do here, which allows you to totally chill and relax, and hardly anyone around. Spa treatments - very good. If you want a total fly and flop, with good food and wine, then this is the hotel for you, however...... do-not step out of the hotel, because the luxury ends there!!!!

Room Tip: No need to upgrade to beach location as where ever you are, you are not far away from beach or hotel...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review of our resort. We are pleased that you had a relaxing stay with us. The wind at present times is unusual and not a regular phenomenon to the normal tranquil days that we experience. We have a wide array of activities for all our guests put together in a programme we call "Touching Senses". Whether it is a star gazing session with our astronomer seeing the night sky full of constellations, planets and the moon, yoga and pilates classes for beginners helping guests experience relaxation and well being, sand art with a local artisan creating your own message in a bottle or moonlight theatre on the beach screening classical and contemporary films; All that Sahl Hasheesh has to offer comes together in one at The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh. We look forward to your return stay.

As a newly, same-sex married couple who live in the United Kingdom, we wanted a quick, easy-to-get-to, sun-filled, one week holiday. After hours and hours of researching we decided upon The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh. Both of us have traveled extensively around the world and have stayed at hotels classified as luxury. From the moment we were greeted at the airport, our experience was one of kindness, service, and ease. Note: I have been wanting to write this review for weeks now, but have finally made the right time to give the Oberoi justice. I mention this because when we were there in early January, and arrived to the hotel grounds, the lobby had this beautifully lit candle display upon entry (a holiday decoration that was taken down a few days later). This was such a warm way to be welcomed accompanied by hand and face towels, tea or juice.

We were then taken to our room (we were upgraded to a Superior Deluxe) via their golf cart service - our room was located on the first tier of rooms by the ocean. Breathtaking to look out upon the enticing, dreamy-blue waters.

Our room was perfect for two people with its sitting area (where every morning you are given a bowl of different fruits), outdoor eating and lounging area, walk-in closet, and bathroom. The sunken bath tub calls to you to relax - the only note here is that there usually isn't enough hot water to properly fill it.

Prior to our arrival the hotel sends you a questionnaire for any special requests and to get to know your preferences. They knew we were newly married, and as we were unpacking they sent over a celebratory chocolate cake to acknowledge our union. This was a nice touch especially as we weren't sure how we'd be received as a same-sex couple in a predominately Muslim country. As for the security and sense of safety, we felt peaceful and well-taken care of. The political climate in Cairo, and the general issues within Egypt were not felt in Sahl Hasheesh.

We booked a variety of spa treatments which we highly recommend experiencing - the couples spa room is lovely. If you can book a couples treatment - deep tissue, Thai, or an Ayurvedic full-body massage - do it, pamper yourself. There is a sauna in the backyard you can use before or after the treatment with tea being served to you afterwards as well. Everyone in the spa department are incredibly helpful and attentive.

The beach staff, at various times, come around with towels, water, hibiscus drinks, some fruit. They are there for any of your hydration, towel, sun lotion needs. The sun shines, the water is clear, the staff cheerful however, do note it does get windy which can create a sense of chilliness - dependent upon your body temperature. The back area to our room was a nice refuge from the wind, and allowed for the sun's warmth to shine through.

The food...where to begin. Room service is excellent and very accommodating - thank you to the delivery staff who took care of us. I wound up coming down with a cold while there, and the hotel made every concession to help me with ginger tea, the delivery of DVDs when I was feeling very poorly (decent film selection - for kicks we watched "Lawrence of Arabia"), and the preparation of special meals if I needed them.

The breakfast buffet is delicious (if you are open to trying a variety of cultural cuisines - try the Egyptian and Indian breakfasts) which is served in the main restaurant. The Indian Restaurant was only open 1-day during our stay (again delectable) however, the Chef made us special Indian dishes as well as gluten-free breads whenever we asked.

The gentlemen who came to clean the room every day were meticulous and sweet.

Dhiren (General Manager), and the support staff - Mahmoud, Ossama, the women in the Spa (*I'm sorry I'm forgetting the woman's name who runs the Spa - she was incredibly helpful) provided us with wonderful service. Really, all the staff at the Oberoi were great - even if we can't remember everyone's name!

Overall, we loved our time at the Oberoi as we felt pampered, relaxed, and well taken care of.

Thank you, and we look forward to returning again very soon.

Our very best wishes to all of you!
