We visited the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh during the 14th to the 25th April 2014, on a vacation arranged through Voyage Prive. I had visited the Oberoi chain on previous business trips to India and had always felt the service and food to be excellent. This was no exception and we had decided that this was to be a chill out type of vacation intentionally to recharge our batteries. The key aspects of this visit I would like to highlight are as follows:
The beach - wanting to relax we opted to use the beach each day which was a short stroll from our suite. The service from the team there was exceptional with towels prepared every day, beds arranged and water, iced drinks and melon provided at intervals to give relief to the 34 to 38* C average temperature. The beach was tolerable aided by the cooling northerly winds which prevail at this time of year and refresh the body from the suns heat.
The restaurants - we ate 100% within the hotel and every meal was expertly cooked to perfection within the main restaurant, Zafron the Indian and Pergola the poolside restaurant. On several occasions I requested special variants particularly in the Indian restaurant and was delighted with the results, I should particularly mention the young Indian chef who made me an authentic Murgh Makhani to match any I had eaten in India during my many travels to world class hotels.
The service - throughout the stay whether on the beach, in the bedroom, the mini bar, turn down or restaurant and bar service the attention to detail was incredible and very quickly we felt a part of the hotel and very well looked after and nothing misses the attention of the staff!
The Hotel Management and suites - it is very true to say that Egypt is suffering badly from the political uncertainty of the last several years and the economy has been devastated by the turbulence that has ensued, which makes it even more remarkable that the standards offered by this hotel are a testimony to the management and commitment of all staff. When we watched every day the beach attendants faithfully collecting the flotsam that blows in periodically from the Red Sea and keeping the beach spotless as well as the gardeners, and maintenance teams that respond to the incidental breakages and mishaps that prevail with a quiet regard for their clients and by these efforts keep what is a very large acreage spotlessly clean and in working order. I feel it is a duty to make sure their efforts are supported by travellers from whatever country to ensure that this country, culture and historical heritage are preserved for our future generations and most importantly the indigenous inhabitants.
So in summary, excellent relaxing holiday, superb hotel, attentive management and staff and premier class food, including the breakfast! 10/10
