Bottom Line

The four-pearl SUNRISE Holidays Resort is an all-inclusive adult-only resort situated on a private lagoon beach in Hurghda. The private beach includes sun loungers, water-sport activities, and a scuba center. The 380 rooms and suites are pleasant and include standard amenities like air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. Most of the rooms have lovely sea views from private balconies. With the resort's five all-inclusive restaurants and eight bars, guests stay well-fed while enjoying the private beach, busy outdoor pool, cozy spa, fitness center, game room, and daily entertainment from the animation team. Some of the facilities are out-of-style, but rates are incredibly low. For those who prefer a kid-friendly resort, consider the nearby Baron Palace Sahl Hasheesh, also with all-inclusive options.

Oyster Hotel Review

SUNRISE Holidays Resort


Adult-only resort with a quiet ambience, though outdated decor

Located on a lovely private lagoon beach, SUNRISE Holidays Resort makes the most of its location with balconies in most rooms and pool decks with sea views. The front of the hotel features a large lawn area, with flower beds planted in the shape of "Welcome Home." The resort's interiors are a bit outdated, with some areas even looking a bit shabby. The lobby still has appeal with a grand glass entrance, marble flooring, and wooden reception desk with world clocks on the wall. Each of the restaurants and bars feature an individual design, some following the theme of the restaurant such as Arabian Nights Restaurant and Mediterranean Restaurant. Most of the restaurants require guests to wear smart casual attire, with no shorts, swimsuits, or slippers allowed. As an adult-only property, it attracts couples on vacation and is consistently busy with many returning guests -- mainly due to excellent, friendly service that's often complimented on.

Beachfront location that's a 17-minute drive to Hurghada

SUNRISE Holidays Resort is located right on a private lagoon beach. The private beach includes several water sports activities, as well as a diving center where guests can arrange glass bottom boat tours and fishing trips. There’s not too much to see or do surrounding the resort -- just other hotels and a couple of shops, restaurants, and bars within walking distance. The vibrant town of Hurghada is a 17-minute drive away. Makadi Bay Water World takes 32 minutes to reach by car. It's a 14-minute drive to Hurghada International Airport.
