The luxury Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh resort (which features in my 5 best resorts Sharm El Sheikh) in is ideally situated on the Sinai Peninsula, offering the warmth of summer all year round. It is one of the best luxury in the area with outstanding views and access to 3 private beach coves, 4 good-sized pools and one of the most spectacular diving sites in the Sinai Peninsula, Gardens Bay.
Pools & Beach
This resort is spacious and well designed with 4 large pools so there is always a comfy lounger where you can find peace and space. The grounds are well maintained and if you meander down to one of the private beaches, the lively reef comes right to the shore and you can paddle in the edge of the water and watch the colourful fish swimming around your feet, literally next to the beach. The 3 beaches are great during the day and at night, it’s fun to go crab spotting after dinner in the dark.
When you arrive and throughout your stay you can expect superb and welcoming service from every member of staff. Little touches make a real difference here; Chef Mahmoud at the breakfast egg station might have 5-7 omelette cooking at any one time but you can guarantee the next time you ask for an omelette not only will he remember your name but he will also remember the exact ingredients in the omelette that he prepared for you the previous day. Mahmood, the waiters in Souk and Frescos goes out of their way to teach kids to make flowers from napkins. There is not one member of staff who is not full of smiles.
Rooms are Mediterranean in style, erring on the traditional and are currently under refurbishment. Sea View rooms are the best choice with a nice balcony and a spacious 38sq metre room which includes a king-size bed, high-speed Internet and marble bath with soaking tub, walk-in shower and deluxe bath amenities.
Upgrading to the Regency Club is well worth the money. You will receive complementary continental breakfast, evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as you would expect, but also access to a private Regency pool and private Regency secluded, separate beach. Both tend to be extremely quiet and secluded.
The food at the Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh is excellent, Sala Thai is particularly good and serves authentic Thai and South East Asian food. Cascades restaurant also comes highly reccomended.
Other activities on offer include jeep safaris, camel expeditions, quad bikes, mountain treks and even Bedouin–style tented dinners. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy a round or two in Sharm El Sheikh’s 18-hole course, while divers can discover the treasures of diving in Sharm El Sheikh.
The spa offers a variety of pampering treatments or you can simply stretch out on a sun lounger and drink in the warm Egyptian sunshine all day long.
