The Red Sea Riviera/Sinai region
The modern airport at Hurghada is reached in just five hours flight time from most European cities. Almost guaranteed year round sun and the Red Sea itself are the main attractions of this destination. The Red Sea is the world's northern most tropical sea and boasts some of the words most spectacular tropical fish and corals. Diving or snorkeling in the Red sea is like entering another world of stunning colours and variety.
Sahl Hasheesh Resort (arabic for Green Valley) is a gated and secure purpose built resort set in a sheltered and very beautiful bay about 22km south of Hurghada. The bay is 12km long, has an uninterrupted sandy beach and is sheltered by Hasheesh Island and its 2.5km long reef. Sahl Hasheesh Resort is completely new and is set to become the premium beach resort on the Red Sea Riviera.
In 1996 the Egyptian Resorts Company (ERC) purchased the 8,000 acre (32 million square metres) site and has exclusive development rights. Their vision for the Sahl Hasheesh Resort is for it to develop into a completely self contained 'Red Sea community'. Today, Sahl Hasheesh Resort offers four luxury hotels, a spectacular Piazza with water falls and fountains, stunning architecture and just a handful of luxury apartment developments.

"The best 'spur of the moment' decision we've ever taken"
A last minute decision to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation (with a spot of spectacular diving thrown in) took us to the Red Sea. The hotels in Hurghada had plenty of availability but we wanted a week of pleasing ourselves without having to rush in the mornings to get to breakfast.
So, with this in mind, we decided to research a self catering holiday and came across Sahl Hasheesh, a spectacular new resort build around a stunning bay with one of the best beaches that I've seen in the Red Sea. The resort is a mix of hotels and luxury apartments so we could have the best of both worlds.
Andrew and Debbie have created an apartment which is a real "home from home", something which is often lacking in self catering holidays. Lovely bed linen (a must for me), big fluffy towels (even beach towels are provided) and super comfortable beds. Communication with them was prompt and friendly. They made all our arrangements for us so that, from the moment we arrived, everything had been taken care of.
The apartment is on the ground floor and double doors open onto a patio overlooking the pool. We were there outside of school holidays so often had the pool area to ourselves (and much of the beach).
The holiday went far too quickly. We had a couple of days diving with Dive Point Red Sea (they came to pick us up each day and are one of the most professional and safety-conscious dive centres I've ever dived with) and the rest of the time we spent enjoying the beach and snorkelling in the bay.
The resort is stunning and (this is a really nice touch) all of the hedges are made up of herbs so, as you brush by them, there's a wonderful scent - perfect :-)
Tips:- pick up some groceries in the hypermarket on your way from the airport. The onsite shops are good for the basics but you might want to stock up on a few provisions.
If you want to get online while you're there, you can buy a cheap dongle in the same shopping mall which worked well for me.

"A quiet, unspoilt paradise resort, offering the perfect setting for singles or families to just get away from it all."
This 2 bed, two bathroom spacious apartment offered us all a home from home ideal for western holiday makers, including those who are may just be used to travelling in Europe! The kitchen is thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed for self catering and the furnishings and beds were totally spotless, just as if we where staying in a 5 star London hotel. There are blackout blinds on all windows and air con in all rooms. We loved the flat screen TV and DVD player and there is also a games console for families with lots of games and films just left for anyone to enjoy. We spent a restful, quiet holiday here where nothing was too much trouble for the local staff who were always on hand to help and assist us which also offers a great feeling of safety especially if you have children with you. There are two private pools set in the manicured gardens and plenty of sunbeds for all. A small shop under the apartment block kept us stocked with endless ice-creams and huge local mangos, you will not run short of milk, water, etc. The owners of this apartment obviously take pride in offering a very high standard of accommodation. They even provided a local phone which you can top up at the shop and has local taxi numbers etc saved on it and there is a manual available with detailed information regarding how everything works both in the apartment and at the resort. There's plenty of opportunity to walk along the quiet cobbled boulevards along the shoreline or along pristine golden sandy beaches. We snorkelled in about 10 feet of water one day and saw the most amazing marine life. Since the revolution, I understand building work has re-started on some of the unfinished hotels and apartment blocks, so now is a perfect time to enjoy the calm of this new resort before everyone is let in on the secret. We will definitely be travelling to this lovely apartment again and spreading the word to friends and family.

"Perfect! Great spot, safe, beautiful, fab pools and beach with snorkelling to die for, everything you want and more."
We really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is lovely, spacious and airy with very high quality fittings and all mod cons but still retaining a nice 'egyptian feel' to it. The 2 pools are lovely and close so you don't have to remember to take everything as it's so easy to pop back to the apartment. They're surrounded with some lovely gardens which are all carefully maintained. The pool area is really quiet and relaxing with comfy sun beds - no need to put your towel out the night before, plenty to go around! The dedicated apartment beach is a short walk along a beautifully palm tree lined promenade. It has the the most amazing view and you can snorkel straight from the shore and start watching the most amazing fish - you don't even need flippers it's so close. We wore swim shoes as there are a few sharp shells etc on the way in. The apartment and pool area as well as the beach have security so you don't get hassled by sellers. We went on a fun quad outing in the desert but we went on the standard tour which meant we picked up loads of people on the way, if (when!) we go again we'll use chris's taxi service and go direct. The ability to stock up on food on the way to the apartment was great, the supermarket has everything you want so finding the ingredients to cook with was easy. We had massages at the local spa ( at the pyramisa hotel next door) which we'd highly recommend, part of the massage includes a sauna and jacuzzi so do wear your bikini. All in all a great week, we'd highly recommend it to friends and will definitely be going back!
