We're drooling over this swank Oberoi hotel on Egypt's secluded Red Sea coast, situated on 48 acres with a sparkling white sand beach. Reflecting the region, The Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh is architecturally magnificent with domes, arches, private courtyards, and columns. Offshore, fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving await. This exclusive luxury resort is comprised of suites; the Grand and Royal Suites have private heated swimming pools. After a day of exposure to the sun and the sea, relax with a restorative massage in the Oberoi spa. Also available on site: a gorgeous pool, gym, and tennis court. For some seriously droolworthy pix, check out the photo gallery.
