“Fantastic apartment, perfect location!” We returned on Friday from our stay at Sharks Bay Oasis. After a stay of nearly two weeks, my partner and I are already thinking about our return visit! Absolutely loved it! The apartment is as it looks, lovely! We had everything we needed, which was great as lots of self-catered places have limited cooking utensils etc. and we like to cook / eat in alot on holiday which meant this was ideal. The roof terrace is huge too and meant you had another sunbathing option as there are two loungers there and a seating area looking out onto the bay. There was WI-FI in the apartment but it was a little sporadic. We did know this beforehand so it wasn't a shock and when we enquired about it, we discovered the whole resort was down. They then rebooted the next day & all was fine from then on.
The resort itself was very well maintained, all the gardens looked fantastic. Staff were very helpful and sorted us out wonderfully when we needed to recharge our electricity at 11pm! Worth taking a look at this to see how much you've got left as we completely forgot being immersed in holiday mode & then had a mild panic in the dark! But they were great and did this very efficiently with no bother!
It was quiet and peaceful, not sure if this was down to coming late September but certainly suited us. Shark's Bay itself is really gorgeous, and being that lots of people seem to come here for diving and snokelling and it's a small bay with only a few hotels, it doesn't have the same hassle centric vibe as other areas in Sharm. We spent lots of time down at the beach, there's a few little restaurants here and a good shisha place which we enjoyed. There's free loungers at the beach associated with the resort, although we actually preferred the other end of the beach and often sat here instead. Great snokelling at both though, but the beach, loungers and 'walk-in' to the water made it more comfortable for us slightly further down.
It's very close to Soho Square (restaurant / shopping area) & about a 15 minute cab ride to either Naama or Nabq bay. Again this suited us as we have visited Sharm before and didn't care much for going to these locations other than to do a food shop & an occasional dinner.
Worth noting, and this is no fault of Sharms Bay Oasis, but the next hotel along (Rojana) plays some very loud music. It seemed to come on about 10am for at least half an hour and then again in the pm. It was a little out of place & didn't suit the setting so we found that slightly irritating. Also, the pool in front of our apartment was being cleaned - alot! It was out of action the last few days, but this didn't bother us too much as there are three other pool choices, the beach or the terrace to choose from! The only other thing that was a little strange was there were lots of people being shown around the complex each day, we spoke to reception and as they appear to be expanding the site and building new apartments, they were lots of people being shown around. They didn't bother us, but it was quite odd to have a fairly constant stream of people walking through.
Otherwise, security was great. There were no concerns or worries on this front, the staff were very helpful and accomodating and lastly, the weather was fantastic. Overall we had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay and would love to go back as soon as we're able!
“Wonderful holiday” We had a wonderful holiday which was more than we ever expected. The chalet was very spacious and comfortable and the view was fantastic. It was a real joy to open the curtains each morning! We went on 3 trips. The first one was a boat trip to Tiran island where we stopped numerous times to snorkel and scuba dive.The sea was so warm and clear and the quantity and variety of fish was amazing.Snorkelling was also first class from the resort beach.Our other trips involved flying to Cairo for the day which was well worth it and a jeep safari to St. Catherine's monastry and the coloured canyon.The monastry was excellent but the canyon was a bit disappointing as it is very small and not even that coloured!! The jeep was very hot and cramped.Our other days were spent at the resort which is well kept and attractively laid out. The pool by the beach was quiet and deep enough for me to swim lots of lengths.We ate in the buffet restaurant in the main building - the food was good value and good quality. All the staff were friendly and helpful. House-keeping kept us well supplied with bottled water and clean towels for a small daily tip.
Overall, an excellent place to visit to get some winter sun - it was hot every day with no clouds! We will certainly visit again.
Unless you are a multi-millionaire you'll be blown away by the sheer opulence of this place.
We went in Dec, the outside temp was about 25 degrees, but with the heated swimming pool there was none of that 'should I shouldn't I get in'. Luxury. And the house is so big you can get lost. My favorite room was the lounge that opens up to the pool, but equally watching sunsets on the roof terrace was a bit special.
Save to say we're going back sometime next year. …
Sharks Bay Oasis
A comfortable good sized apartment in a superb location
The apartment was comfortable and clean in a well managed and secure complex. Fantastic sea views from the lounge and balcony. Ideal family accomodation with good sized bedrooms and lounge space.
Just a short walk down the steps to the beach at Shark's Bay where you can enjoy fantastic snorkelling from the jetty and free use of sun beds.
This particular stretch of beach was much quieter than some of the neighbouring hotel beaches but still had all amenities, a small number of bars, restaurants, small shops and a wide variety of water sports.
Shopping is limited in the area so you really need a taxi to a supermarket if you intend to cater for yourselves. …
Affordable & romantic sea view Villa in 5* Hotel
great value for money
we had a great time weather was brilliant,you are in one of the best areas of the resort,appartment was big and spacious,cleaner could not do enough gamal the owner even picked us up from the airport. gamal as added his own air con unit as well and this was fantastic i think the resort is more 3/4 star than five but it did not spoil our holiday,facilities we good, if i could say anything it would be much better if ithe kitchen had a conventional oven and hob as this very much restricts what can be cooked and also gamal if you could negotiate preferential rates for the all inclusive offer this would greatly enhance its appeal as $50 us dollars a day was extortionate for what was on offer,but as i say it was great value for the money …
When seeing the prices and pictures of villa Shahrazad I was sure something wasn't right. How can such a beautiful please be so affordable? After reading reviews on trip advisor and various other sites my friend and I decided to bite the bullet and book for 10nights. I cannot begin to explain just how beautiful the villa is, it boasts the most amazing swimming pool and jacuzzi and not forgetting the 7bedrooms including a walk in wardrobe! We felt like we had died and gone to heaven! I cannot praise this amazing villa enough along with the service received from Max and Mohammed which was the cherry on top. We enjoyed the villa so much the moment we got back to London we checked to see if it was available again, however, it seems a lot of other people are in love with the property as much as we are as it's fully booked!
You will not be dissppointed when booking this villa, it is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing stay in Sharm and is of the highest quality!
Thank you Khaled for allowing us to stay in your fabulous villa and we will most definitely be staying again in the near future (so long as we can find a space in the calander where you're not fully booked!) …
Sharks Bay Oasis Apartment
Once you have been, you will get hooked. We have been 4 years in a row.
The apartments are very well setup and have an amazing location just 200 yards from the top of the stairs to the Beach and the pontoons to the coral.
The area is so well setup for learning to dive (or snorkel) or improving your dive skills, and I would highly recommend butterfly divers which is the nearest dive shop by the lift at sharks bay. Osama is the manager and runs a fanstisic setup.
The lift is now only available to residents of sharks bay so just use your key-fob to call the lift and enable the buttons. In the lift use the fob to enable the lift high above the buttons. …
