From the moment I arrived at The Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh I felt I had reached a true oasis among the Red Sea resorts. The nature and size of this all-suite resort makes it easy to retreat to your own space on the beach, suite or by the impressive pool knowing staff are on hand to make sure you have all you need. I spent a relaxing afternoon here before visiting the Spa (definitely recommended). Dining at the resort is something to look forward to given the menu variety on offer each day, the Indian restaurant Zaafran is a must during any stay.

This is such a peaceful hotel with individual suites which are really spacious and beautifully decorated and furnished. The beach is really long despite it not being a very big hotel, and as the hotel owns the land on one side of the beach, you don't feel as if you are going to be disturbed by guests in another hotel. The house reef is really accessible and healthy. Even though it is peaceful, there is still a good atmosphere in the evening with a buzz to it. Amazing value!
