Sahl Hasheesh holidays and hotels
A luxurious new resort between Hurghada and Makadi Bay, Sahl Hasheesh is surrounded by beautiful sweeping bays of coral sand leading to the crystal clear blue waters of the Red Sea. As you enter the resort, you pass through gates that recreate the monuments of ancient Egypt, but that is where "ancient" ends and the fabulous modern resort begins.
Sahl Hasheesh hotels are linked by a promenade extending the full length of the bay and, as you would expect, watersports feature heavily. In a nod to the origin of the resort's name "grassy plain" there is one championship golf course open already, and an another golf complex under construction.
Did you know?
The resort has its own "sunken city" of partly submerged pharaonic ruins visible from the pier. Designed to attract coral & fish, they are ideal for snorkelling.
