A holiday along the Red Sea Coast that stretches from the Suez to the border of Sudan is one of the most idyllic ones you can ever imagine. Tourism thrives in the region, and several resorts have come up in the settlements in and around Hurghada, Port Safaga, El-Quseir and Marsa Alam. Sahl Hasheesh is a town that is 20 km south of Hurghada and offers everything a tourist looks for along the Red Sea. Sahl Hasheesh is actually a fully integrated resort community.
In the arms of luxury
So, when a couple of friends and I checked in to The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh, one of the best luxury resorts in Egypt, we knew what to expect. We were in the arms of luxury, as we entered the resort which has a private beach. We were shown our suite, which was synonymous with luxury, and had a sunken bath, walk-in shower and even a private courtyard. We stayed in a deluxe suit, of which there are 63. Then, there are 21 superior deluxe suits, six royal suites and 12 grand suites, with private swimming pools in the latter.
