The Oberoi at Sahl Hasheesh is a luxurious, all-suite resort on Egypt’s Red Sea coast.
Amelia is here to help give you the inside track.
Set in 48 acres of palm-filled grounds about 6 miles south of Hurghada, the hotel's design is inspired by traditional Arabian architecture, with shady marble colonnades and domed pavilions.
The suites are located in bungalows scattered around the grounds. All are spacious and have private courtyard-gardens and luxurious bathrooms, while the superior suites also have their own pools. The resort's large main swimming pool overlooks the sea and a long stretch of private sandy beach. The excellent Banyan Tree spa offers a range of massages, treatments and beauty therapies, plus a sauna and steam room. There is also a state-of-the-art gym, a tennis court, a kids' club featuring bowling, slides and mini-basketball, and a golf course 20 miles away.
Other activities include desert safaris and full-day excursions to ancient Coptic monasteries or to Luxor. Fine Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine is served at the main restaurant, which has views of the sea. There is also an Indian restaurant, an al fresco poolside restaurant, and a bar.
