Location

A secluded haven on the shores of the Red Sea near Hurghada, the Oberoi has great views out over the water. Good shopping and nightlife are just a short taxi ride away.

Food and drink

There are three main dining options at the Sahl Hasheesh.

The Pergola is located next to the swimming pool, with beautiful views over the Red Sea. It serves a light menu of pizza, salads and pasta. In the evening the main restaurant offers an à la carte menu of international fare.

The other option is the elegant blue and silver Zaafran restaurant which offers Oriental and Indian cuisine which we recommend booking in advance. There is also a bar located near the swimming pool which offers pre-dinner drinks and light entertainment.

Families

The kids' club is open from 9:30am until 5pm, for children aged 5 to 12, and is complimentary.

Facilities and activities

The resort is dominated by an expansive infinity pool with deckchairs. It's the perfect place to relax with a book, swim or sunbathe. There is a timetable of complimentary activities for guests to take part in, including pilates, moonlight theatre, culinary experiences and yoga. These can be made private for an additional fee. 

The hotel has an onsite spa offering an extensive range of treatments focussing on techniques from Bali and Thailand. There is a luxurious steam room in private gardens and a couple’s suite for romantic paired treatments. 

Scuba diving is one of the main reasons that guests are drawn to the Red Sea, with over 400 species of coral and 20% of the world’s fish species living in these tropical waters. There is a PADI certified course offered at the hotel and a range of private dives, sea dives and night dives for experienced scuba divers. 

Guests can enjoy the ocean without dipping under the surface, with a boat cruise on one of the Oberoi’s private boats. Enjoy a sunset cruise, snorkel or trip to the nearby islands.

Local excursions

The Dive Pro Academy can organise private or group fishing and boat trips. Further afield, you could go on a Cairo or Luxor trip, jeep and quad bike safari, horse and camel riding, submarine trips and trips to St. Paul and St. Anthony monasteries.

Our opinion

The Sahl Hasheesh is one of the finest beach resorts in Egypt, with a calm and luxurious air that is second to none on the Red Sea. If you want a stay in a resort where the service and food are consistently good and you have all your creature comforts it's harder to find one better than the Sahl Hasheesh. Although there are a few facilities for children, it is primarily suited to adults. The town of Hurghada is a taxi-ride away. We send a number of guests here and have always received very positive feedback. In addition, the North Africa & Arabia team always really enjoy their stays here. We can warmly recommend it.
