“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2010

Whilst working in Tourism for 20 plus years, i was amazed about the quality and sevice levels from this hotel.
The hotel its self is a paradise , where you can please yourself were you eat where you drink and how you wish to relax, by the many pools or on the private beach.
This Hotels is one of the best that I have visited, and it suited our itenary.
The staff in the hotelmust be praised for thier dedication towards customer service , which they excelled at.
My self and my friends.will definatly be recommending this hotel to other people, and of course we will be returning to the hotel in Janaury 2011.
Top tip try and book 10day 0r 14 as you will not get the chance to enjoy all the amazing choiced of places to eat within 7 days.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The Royal Savoy at Sharm El Sheikh is the most beautiful and luxurious hotel in which I have ever had the privilege to stay.

Our honeymoon started when we landed in Sharm and were picked up by George, who whisked us through immigration, and took us directly to the hotel and the private Royal Savoy guest entrance. Check-in was a dream come true - we were then greeted by Karina who walked us into the Royal Savoy's beautifully furnished private lounge where we were given a glass of rosé champagne (my wife had a fresh mango and strawberry juice) and had both the Royal Savoy and S-class package explained to us. We then signed our S-class voucher cards and booklets (including a free 25-minute anti-stress massage, ice-skating in Soho Square and 10 frames of bowling each to name a few!) and we were checked in. From airport to complete relaxation with drink in hand in less than 20 minutes!

The Room:

Our Royal Savoy room was stunning, complete with a four poster bed, private balcony, marble bathroom, not to mention the daily plate of desserts/puddings (they changed every day ranging from chocolate biscuits to decadent chocolate fudge cake to baklava) and our welcome fruit basket!

The bed was a dream come true, complete with a pillow menu to ensure that we got the best possible sleep.

The Service:

From the moment we walked into the Royal Savoy lounge until we retired to our room in the evening, we were looked after by wonderful members of staff who took a personal interest in making sure that we had the best possible experience while we were there. I would like to especially note Karina, Hany, the two Georges, Ali (at the Royal Savoy's private pool) and Hana (in Hot Rock).

Each and every member of staff always had a smile on their face and always went out of their way to make sure we were looked after and we had truly personalised service.

The Food:

Being a serious foodie, I can, without a doubt, say that the food at the Savoy was absolutely outstanding.

The sushi and sashimi at the Sushi restaurant was the best either of us have ever had - not surprising after we found out our chef from the Maldives was trained by 3 different Master Chefs.

The Hot Rock Dining had the most exquisite tuna tartar and beautifully selected cuts of steak. Being able to cook our own meat exactly how we wanted it was a fantastic experience by itself though the setting and entertainment made it all the more enjoyable.

Teppanyaki was fantastic, everything beautifully prepared and seasoned. Our Thai chef (you'll see her on the posters for the restaurant when you get there) was very congratulatory about our wedding and scrawled "Happy Honeymoon" in salt upside down (for her) on the cooking surface while her colleague carved a rose out of a beetroot.

The Royal Savoy lounge was also one of the stand-outs for us. Each breakfast we were greeted with our individual orders of tea, coffee and a glass of champagne which had been established on our second morning. The egg station was my personal favourite where a chef prepared any kind of omelette and even proper old-fashioned poached eggs in a whirlpool done perfectly with runny yolks every time. The lounge is open from 7am to 10pm after the 11am breakfast cut-off, the breakfast offering is taken away to be replaced by light lunch-like snacks of smoked salmon on a mini bagel and a double shot glass filled with freshly prepared chocolate and orange mousse. Around 5pm or so these would then be augmented by additional light dinner options.

The Grounds:

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, pictures don't do the Savoy justice - it is truly paradise. The Royal Savoys two private pools are heated to roughly 28 degrees C, which over look the Cave Bar, the amphitheatre, and the Red Sea. The beaches are beautiful, the paths and grounds immaculately presented with waterways and waterfalls framing your entire trip from the main foyer of the hotel to the beaches themselves. In a word: stunning.

Soho Square being just outside of the hotel was fantastic for shopping, bowling, darts, restaurants (the Sushi and Teppanyaki places among the many!).

Overall:

We couldn't have had a more wonderfully relaxing or luxurious honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing.

Excellent location and fantastic facilities especially with the addition of Soho Square where top restaraunts await you with a wide range of establishments to suit all tastes ad vry competetive prices. The staff are always welcoming and one aspect that demonstrates the true investment & commitment in this hotel by its owner is the ongoing training and development of its staff. Staff that we metthree years ago still there and with promotion not having to move around to fulfil their ambitions or climb up the career ladder - a true "grow your own" philosophy. The rooms are large well air conditioned and very well serviced. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the Royal Savoy from arriving to departing your stay is truly a holiday. Thank you

We went to The Royal Savoy looking for the simplest of holidays - a relaxing one in the sun and that is certainly what we got. We were welcomed by the friendly staff and the check-in process was very quick. When we arrived in our room we found a cake on our table wishing us a happy honeymoon and also some flowers - a lovely touch and not something we expected. Our room was spacious, comfortable and attractive, and the bathroom whilst reasonable did very easily end up with water on the floor from the shower (and we did shut the door properly!). This was a minor gripe and we simply learned to direct the water away from the door so only caused a problem once.

We were lucky enough to be on the ground floor of our 4 room building and so we had French window access to a small garden (shared with the neigbouring ground floor room). Fortunately our garden had the sun shining on it all day because the surrounding trees were all slightly lower and further away than for the other rooms, as a result we asked the pool attendant to bring some sunbeds up to our garden, which he happily did and they remained for the duration of the stay - absolutely perfect. From here Mahmoud down at the pool bar looked after us with soft drink, wine/lager and crisps etc all day. From here we had about a 25 yard walk to the nearest pool (a 45cm deep pool) which we really enjoyed lazing around in. We also tended to go back to the main Royal Savoy bar for our lunches where a selection of light savoury, sweet canapes and fruit were available all day - this allowed us to keep our appetite for a good meal out in the evening to one of the many hotel restaurants available (our favourites were the Indian (Bombay, I think) and Hot Rock though we enjoyed all the food available.

In our opinion the B&B option we chose was definitely the best value - we did look at upgrading to the S-class (all inclusive) option after a day at the hotel but to be honest unless you have an absolutely massive appetite (and we're not afraid of a big meal) or a desire to brag about being on an all inclusive then it's not even a close decision - go for the B&B - you still get free soft drinks all day, free Egyptian lager (which is not bad) and free Egyptian wine (which probably best thought of as a harsh alcoholic drink rather than wine - but we weren't prepared to pay £50+ for a £7 bottle of wine from the traditional producing countries) .

Although there was some building work being carried out whilst we were there we can honestly say that it didn't detract from our holiday one bit (and according to the staff it was supposed to be finished by Jan 1st (wouldn't bet on that though). They are apparently also going to be renewing the Royal Savoy pools (and making them larger) to allow for the extra rooms being built so it might be worth checking about that before booking.

Overall we had a lovely, relaxing honeymoon here and would happily recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a similar holiday, in fact I would say that we will almost certainly return (plenty of other places in the world to visit as well though!)

Basically this hotel lives up to its reputation
Its clean the staff are very friendly and it’s a good resort hotel.

Some rooms are a bit dated but the hotel are refurbishing so it’s a bit of pot luck re the allocation

Many have debated the “S” class all inclusive issue as to value or not.
My wife and I are staying on bed and breakfast and to be honest whilst we brits have a reputation for binge drinking and over eating you would be hard pressed to consume the $120 per person per day uplift quoted to go from B& B to S class.
Food and drink is expensive but this isn’t just within the hotel.. its Sharm in general

Soho square is a nice addition that gives options to guests but its not operated to the same standard as the main hotel. Food quality is marginal at best and the restaurants get busy so its best to book.

If you are looking for a rest this would be a good choice
The beach and pontoons (for snorkelling) get a bit busy but the hotel is spacious and there is plenty of room for all. Only slight negative is the hotel insist on playing Christmas songs over the PA ALL DAY and most of the evening

This was my second visit to Sharm El Sheikh. In May 2009 I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Club which has the same concept as the Royal Savoy "a hotel within a hotel". The Royal Savoy is a very good hotel. The best part of the holiday at the Royal Savoy was the food; we were on the all inclusive package and enjoyed amazing food at different restaurants each evening. The Bombay, Steakhouse, Teppanyaki (all Soho Square) and the Italian restaurant (Savoy) were our favourites however the Saffron Restaurant (Soho) and the Seafood Restaurant (Savoy) were of a poor standard in comparison. The al a carte lunch restaurant next to the beach was great. All inclusive is very important in Sharm if you like to enjoy a few drinks. At the Hyatt Regency Club you have 2-3 hours of free alcoholic drinks in the evening however after this time a glass of Egyptian wine costs £20!

In comparison to the Hyatt Regency Club the Royal Savoy itself was not as good. The private beach at the Royal Savoy consists of around 8 sun loungers on the cliff with no direct access to the sea/beach without walking down some steps, however at the Hyatt Regency Club the private beach is really big and private with a beach bar and waiter service (all soft drinks free). The swimming pools at the Royal Savoy are small, quite basic and lack privacy. The Hyatt Regency Club, however has a beautiful, large, private three tier pool with waterfalls. The clubhouse snacks at the Royal Savoy were very basic compared to the Hyatt Regency Club.

I can understand why other people have stated that the construction did not interfere with their holiday at the Royal Savoy, as it does depend where your room is situated, but I didn't like it. The noise did interfere with my holiday. The constant music around the pools (attempting to hide the construction noise?) is very irritating too.

The check in at the Royal Savoy was excellent, however the check out was disappointing. The Royal Savoy was closed (6am) so we checked out at the main reception. The receptionist tried to charge us for alcohol and crisps from the mini bar that we had not consumed. There was no "inventory" at the beginning of the holiday and the items were never in the mini bar. This fiasco took 30 minutes to resolve and made us late for check in at the airport. To make matters worse our taxi driver did not know which terminal to take us to!

Overall, the Royal Savoy is a great hotel with many positives set out in all the reviews and we had an amazing holiday. The dining experience makes it stand out from any hotel in Sharm. If you are more concerned with privacy, the beach and the pools however, I would recommend the Hyatt Regency Club. I recommend both hotels very highly but for different experiences; the Hyatt if the day is the most important and the Royal if the evening is most important. I just wish one of the hotels offered both!

Having returned from the Royal Savoy a few weeks ago i can only say i wish we was still there. We travelled with my partners parents and all four of us agreed it is the best hotel in Sharm. We had 2 ground floor rooms in front of the 2 no swimming pools and within a 50m walk to the Royal Savoy Lounge.
We went on a half board basis this included breakfast, all soft and local alcoholic drinks in the Royal Savoy area up to 6.00pm and then international drinks and cocktails from 6.00 to 8.00pm in the Royal Savoy Lounge. It also included evening meals in 8 of the restaurants within the Savoy and Soho complex.
We tried all the restaurants during our visit and found the food to be very good. Our favourite was Zen the chinese however the others particulary the Indian, Italian and Ukranian one were also very good, depending on your taste of food it would be very difficult not to enjoy the variety of choice at the Savoy. Some of the restaurants charge a supplement for some courses although the majority of the menu was included and some of the portions were so large that there is no need to pay any extra.
We was happy to stay within the Royal Savoy complex, however if you wanted to enjoy all the bars of the Savoy and Soho complex and enyoy an active nightlife then it would most probably pay to go All Inclusive as the choice of bars and entertainment within the Savoy and Soho complex as a whole is very good.
The thing that makes the Royal Savoy stand out from other hotels is the staff. I am not very good at remembering names however Ali and Ehmud at the pool were both first class in looking after us. However all the staff from the reception area to the Royal Savoy lounge were first class and did everything possible to make sure we enjoyed our holiday.
The only thing i would say is that the rooms were a bit dated in particulary the bathroom area and could do with an update in the near future. They are currently carrying out building work which we understand is to form another 15 or so Royal Savoy rooms. I would expect these to be very special and then hopefully they would update the existing rooms in the near future. i would also say that the building work was not intrusive and did not interfere with our holiday at all.
Having said this the rooms are still very nice and have all the ammenities you would expect and were kept spotlessly clean
We travelled with my partners parents and although the complex is built on a steep hill we was provided with a club car to take us about the complex which was particulary good if you want to the Soho complex which is at the front of the Hotel.
The main beach area is about a 50m walk from the Royal Savoy pool area and although we found this to be very busy during the mornings it was a lot quieter during the afternoons and we used to go down about 2.30 for a swim. The snorkelling just off the pontoon was the best we have experienced in Sharm and that says a lot as all the areas are very good
We went for a relaxing holiday and the Royal Savoy provided it. We never went out of the complex for the whole fortnight. It was the first holiday we have had where we have never left the Hotel.
We stayed at the Four Seasons the last time we were in Sharm which is next door to the Savoy and although the quality of the rooms were better, and is also a lovely hotel you do pay a lot more to stay there
All i can say is the next time we return to Sharm which will hopefully be next year we will be staying at the Royal Savoy again.
