    Taba Heights Resort

    by

    Our room had two double beds (one each !!), enough storage space to fit my whole wardrobe into, a sleek bathroom suite and views over the Red Sea to die for. Not forgetting the nice gentleman, who ever morning would create works of art with your towel.

    The hotel was half board, which unfortunately didn't include drinks (though that's the only thing we spent our money on !), but this was more than enough to feed our hungry bellies. In the mornings they would serve eggs, cooked any way you wished, a huge selection of bread and my particular favourite Egyptian porridge !!

    The staff in the restaurant would find a table and then serve that table for the week or duration of your stay. The staff were extremely friendly and all male.

    The only down-side to this hotel is that it is half board. Meaning it doesn't include your drinks which are a big part of your spending money (though there isn't much else to spend it on).
    I'm guessing the hotel makes half it's income off drinks purchased in the bars.

    Unique Quality: This hotel boasts 3 swimming pools with waterfalls and incredible views, 3 bars with traditional Egyptian dancing, 2 restaurants serving authentic Arabic and Lebanese cuisine, a chance to dine with the local Bedouin and some of the nicest staff I've ever met.

  • Sinai's Best Kept Secret

    by

    I stayed at the Hyatt Regency for a week half board - I wanted to stay much longer - it's such a relaxing and beautiful place.

    The hotel is superbly run - all the staff hard working- nothing was too much trouble.

    Facilities include, a general shop, jewelry shop, bank, casino, gym/spa. Nearby is Waterworld - shuttle runs from hotel to there. Shuttle also runs from hotel to nearby 3 Corners hotel - minimarket, etc with good prices.

    More pool areas than you can shake a stick at and a lagoon - great staff. If it gets too hot by the pool, head for the beach for some welcome breeze. Bar on the beach - great. Also on the beach is a satellite location for Waterworld - you can hire snorkel gear here for a reasonable daily price, the staff are friendly and helpful. The reef at the Hyatt is incredible - I've never seen so many fish in my life!!! Access to the water is either by 2 jetties to the left of the beach or a marked out area to the right.

    Food I found very good. The main restaurant is european fare, but a good selection of meats, salads, fish, vegetables, pizza etc. Breakfast is vast too - cereal, toast, cooked meat, and eggs to order. The breads they have there are delicious and fresh too!! There is an italian restaurant, a Lebanese one and a seafood one - I will try those next trip.

    The rooms are well equipped with a TV, internet access point, in room safe,mini bar, seating area and balcony with chairs and a table. Bathrooms are large with good showers, shampoo/conditioner, soap, moisturiser, flannels.

    Did not participate in any daily activities, but the evenings were great, shows with dancers, belly dancer, egyptian dance and a guy who spins for about 20 mins - amazing. A bit of karaoke a couple of nights and a disco every evening. The animation team work hard to ensure you have fun.

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone from single travellers to families. Just remember to relax, take plenty of sunscreen, drink plenty of water and you'll have a great time.

    Unique Quality: The staff in this hotel are what makes it so wonderful. I was always greeted with a smile and a hello. I found everyone very friendly and helpful. The views of the Red Sea across to Jordan are fabulous - especially at night when the port of Aqaba is lit up. The views of the Sinai mountains behind and to the side of the hotel are humbling - quite incredible. I cannot write enough to do this hotel justice - you will just have to try it for yourself !!!!

    Not quite the best.

    by

    The Hyatt at Taba Height is a close second to the Marriott at Taba Heights but i think just lacks that extra bit of of class, but the one advantage it has over all the other Resorts is that it has a Jetty for going in out the Sea making life alot easier for all you keen Snorklers and swimmers out there, if you were to stay here you will not be disapointed.

You will be pleased your coach stops here!

by gabriellefox about Hyatt Regancy - Taba

I have no hesitation in recommending the Hyatt Regency hotel to anyone planning a trip to Taba. The hotel is situated between the impressive mountains of the Sinai and the sapphire waters of the Red Sea. Designed in the style of a modern Nubian village, the Hyatt Regency offers high quality accommodation with really welcoming service. It is an impressive hotel featuring beautifully landscaped gardens and water features, providing the perfect setting for a sumptuous, relaxing holiday. High standards of facilities, accommodation and services make the Hyatt a favourite amongst many returning customers, myself included.

My first trip was in October 2006 when I concentrated on gaining confidence with my diving and snorkelling. Any visit to the Red Sea wouldn't be complete without discovering the incredible variety of life and colour beneath the waves.

From the Hyatt Regency you have access to Red Sea Waterworld, the largest diving and water sports centre on the Red Sea, offering diving courses for learners and qualified divers, diving packages and a range of watersports including snorkelling trips and catamarans. A free shuttle bus operates all day between the hotels and the dive centre.

Snorkelling at the hotel is fantastic as it has its own house reef, accessible from the beach via a jetty. Snorkelling equipment is available (at a cost) from a kiosk on the beach. Alternately, guests may choose to visit Pharoah's Island or other snorkelling sites on a boat trip with Red Sea Waterworld.

On my second trip in May 2007 I took some excursions across the border into Israel. The Hyatt Regency Taba Heights offers 426 air-conditioned rooms and suites spread over an impressive 44 acres of landscaped grounds and water areas. Each room features private facilities, a balcony or terrace, satellite TV, radio, safe, mini-bar, high speed internet access and hairdryer, and magnificent views of the either the sea, pool or mountains. There is a good choice of restaurants and beech bars which service the hotel guests and visitors.

Bus to Taba Heights

by flashpacker07

The East Delta company runs buses from Taba city (there is a stop in Taba Heights as well right outside the resorts) to Cairo. June 2010 we paid 70 egyptian pounds for a 1 way from Cairo (Turgaman station) to Taba heights. The bus is uncomfortable and the airconn was inconsistent, but it's cheap. Hard to know when to get off- make sure you ask as there are no announcements and the bus makes lots of random stops.

Paradise!

by TripAdvisor Member NELLO70

My partner and I have literally just got back from Taba last night and we've had the best time EVER!! Really, we've read all the reviews before both booking the holiday and before our departure and we really cant see how anyone could say a bad thing about this resort. It was absolutely spot on! If your looking for total relaxation, rejuvenation and revitalisation then this is the place for you! If your looking for somewhere a bit more upbeat and commercial then we suggest you go to Sharm. We've been to Sharm last year and quite frankly we found Naama Bay to be a bit of a let down. Not the real Egypt that we had gone to find but a bit more like the Costa Del Sol of Sinai. At that time we stayed at The Savoy and we really couldnt fault that place. It was all that we could ask for and to be honest we were a bit apprehensive of staying at Hyatt Taba for the reasons that it just wouldnt compare. In fact we were right, this place was BETTER!! Really, we've been back less than 24 hours and we're already planning on going back in September/October this year.

From the moment we arrived and the Peltours rep on the coach was very very good in making you feel comfortable after a 5 hour flight and arriving at the hotel checking in with a refreshing complimentary drink (which was well needed after a spectacular 45 min journey through the baron desert (which goes quicker than you think)!!) until we left and was seen off by the staff of the Hyatt we felt very much well looked after. To be honest, we weren't quite sure what to expect from the outside (and any pictures that you see on the web does not give it justice) it doesnt look all that but once your inside and viewing all the pools, the lush green landscape, the lagoon, the beach (especially overlooking Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia) you know your in a very special place - very spiritual indeed!!

As Hyatt Gold members we weren't able to upgrade our room to one with a seaview, as the hotel was fully booked but that did not matter as all the rooms are very spacious, very clean and very well maintained i.e. with a minibar, hairdrying, fresh towels and a very friendly cleaner. We were very happy with what we got.

The beach is absolutely immaculate and the Hyatt is by far the best hotel along that strip (there are three hotels in all including Sofitel and Marriott - the Intercontinental is in the process of being built quite a long stretch away from the Hyatt so you dont hear any noise or disruption) with the jetty and great opportunity for snorkelling (not to be missed).

The staff are fantastically friendly and helfpul and speak a variety of languages - im English and my boyfriend Italian and they could speak both very fluent.. great!! One thing I would say is give these guys a tip, they dont ask for it and wouldnt expect it but they all work extremely hard and deserve a dollar or two and more, and it would make such a difference to them and to you knowing that you've made someone happy with such a small gesture...

One other thing we went on the day trip excursion to Cairo, yes you have to get up rather early (5:00am!!) and its a rather long coach journey (approximately 5 hours) but its well worth it, seeing the arid landscape, the hustle and bustle of Cairo, not to mention the Pyramids and The Museum. Was probably the highlight of the holiday, well worth it, and probably when we go back we'll go on another but next to Petra.

Well as you can probably tell I cant rate the place enough it really is such a special place and we feel better for having gone there!!!

The only qualm we would have is that... we only went for a week... it definitely wasnt long enough!! We'll definitely go back!

We hope this helps a little in making Hyatt Regency Taba a place for you to go to... just one thing to remember and you'll remember this when you get there... relax and enjoy... It truly is Paradise!!!

Best,

What holidays are for

by TripAdvisor Member gavjones

If you are looking for a real relaxation break at a very affordable deal price, you couldn't ignore the Hyatt in Taba.

As many reviews have already noted, it's not a true 5 star in terms of service, but it is very clean, well designed and the rooms are modern and well equipped.

I believe it is the best resort in Taba Heights currently (until the bigger Intercontinental gets build) and in 6 months time, will have a large golf course next to it which will at least not leave the town looking so desert-like (well it is a desert). Hyatt is the only hotel (i believe) with a 15m walkway/jetty where you can go snorkelling and have a fantastic reef just in front of you. This was popular with many people, so try to pack a snorkel or you can even rent from the beach front.

You can look at the staff and their approach to service in many ways, but for me, what they lack in attentiveness and efficiency they more than make up for in charm and personality.

I thought (unlike a few of the reviews) the food is of a high standard, even the fussiest eaters would be hard pressed not to be doing a third round at the buffet and enjoying it. If you want Michelin starred chef, go to a top restaurant where you'll pay about the same for a dinner and wine as you will for a whole holiday in the Hyatt!

Until the town of Taba Heights gets more built up, there is little (read nothing) to do outside of the Hyatt resort in the evenings, but if lying by the pool in the day doesn't suit you everyday, there is a regular shuttle service to the watersports centre where I tried wakeboarding and did 7 scuba dives which were really enjoyable. The dive school is equally laid back in their style, but this is just their attitude rather than in their organisation abillities. Please note however, Taba Heights is NOT strictly in the Red Sea but in the Gulf of Aqaba so please don't expect the jaw dropping dives you may get in Sharm, because you won't get them, but equally with only one dive company in the area, you won't be in with another 4 million divers.

A tip that I read here previously to get a Hyatt Gold Card from their website really does pays off with free soft drinks per day and a room ugrade amongst the benefits.

Go there, chill out, enjoy the sun, isn't that what holidays are for?

Fantasic Break

by TripAdvisor Member Sunnydays

Got back last week after a lovely relaxing holiday at the Hyatt Regency in Taba Heights. Only thing we could fault was service in the restaurant, really hard to get the staffs attention if you require coffee etc., also no matter how early you get out and about in the morning it is still a struggle to find a free sunbed!! But apart from that a Fantastic Hotel, glorious grounds, staff lovely (especially El Fresco lads), and well maintained throughout. We went with Longwood and the reps at Hotel were most knowledgable & helpful.
Did the 2 day trip to Cairo which was well worth it, despite the 5 hour coach journey wouldnt have missed seeing the Pyramids for the world. Will definitely be going back to the Hyatt next year.

Not a Five Start Hotel!

by TripAdvisor Member Barton2

We have just returned from two weeks at the Hyatt in Taba Heights. I must state right from the start that we have also stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Sharm and also in Bali. The Hyatt at Taba bears no resemblence to either of these 5 star hotels. The service and food in the main buffet restaurant was a disgrace. In fact the service in all of the public areas, apart from "Breezes" left much to be desired. It was not only slow, much of the time you were completely ignored. The tables were never completely set, always something missing, a fork, a knife, a spoon, salt, glass etc. which doesn't sound too bad but when you repeatedly ask for the missing item and still do not get it, it does start to annoy you. We ordered continental breakfast in our room, not being able to face the "canteen" more than was absolutely necessary. We asked for tea and got a pot of coffee and a teabag!

On the plus side, the pools, gardens and beach are well laid out and kept very clean. The hotel was full the first week of our visit and poolside sunbeds did fill up very quickly. Pool/Beach towels are provided as you would expect at a 5* hotel although obviously the 3* guests seem to think you had to hang on to this towel and hang it from your balcony each night!

The evening entertainment left a lot to be desired. The childrens entertainment started at 9pm on the terrace outside the main restaurant which was loud and annoying - how many times can you listen to the birdie song at full volume night after night. This would be followed by alternating nights of Folklore Show or Internationl Show. The Folklore was interesting but once seen was enough. The International Show consisted of 5 show girls who just came out and moved their arms in different directions a'la Las Vegas! Still if you missed it you could catch it again every other night! With the prices of the drinks being overpriced (£5.20 for a G&T) a night sat drinking in the bar was expensive and boring. Don't go here if you want a lively night life.

The best day was spent on a trip to Israel, only 20 minutes away. We had no trouble at the border and spent a very enjoyable and interesting day at the Oceanerium, Dolphin Reef (swam with the dolphins) and Eilat for shopping.

This was our third visit to Egypt but we will not be going back to Taba. Unfortunately the cut price deals available to this hotel have meant the Hyatt has dropped its usual high standards to compensate. If you are a geniune 5* traveller - avoid this hotel/resort like the plaque!

Really Nice, ish

by TripAdvisor Member niffer

We Have just come back from a two week stay in Taba. I would definatly have to say this is not a 5* hotel but perhaps a good 3* hotel.

The facilites are good, ample swimming pool's, snorkeling (brilliant) tennis court's, gym etc...

The main probel mwe encountered was the service, i believe if you have children then this is definatly a brilliant place to take you kid's as the waiter's adore children and will spend lot's of time making them happy.

If however like me and my partnr you do not have children, then i hope you are of a patient nature, because you will spend a lot of time waiting for your drink's and they will quite oftern arrive after you have finished your meal.

At one time it took the chap's in the al fresco bar 1 & 1/2 hours to bring a plate of fruit out

The room's were fine and clean although, we found out depending on what block you are staying as to what level of service you get from your cleaner, we were obviosly ont in a good block, but other poeple in different blocks found thier cleaners to be very helpful.

We went on a number of trip's thoughout our stay
1, Dead Sea Tour
2, Petra
3, Cairo 2 day trip
And i can highly recommend all of these trip's as they were all "fantastic"

If i were to give some top tip's
1, buy your alochol at Gatwick
2, Don't drink the local wine
3, take plenty of books etc...
4, get up early if you want a sun bed
5, Insect repelant and anti- hystamine
6, keep your sense of humor

Thank you

Niffer Sussex

Taba or Taba Heights that is the ?

Can anyone advise which is the better destination. Recent visit to Nabq has got us hooked on snorkelling. Also want to visit Petra. Going end September this year if we get sometips. Ta.

RE: Taba or Taba Heights that is the ?

by ElizabethSmith

Taba is a border "town" (can't really call it a town though. The Hilton was bombed there recently and that was the best hotel in the place. We spent two weeks at the Hyatt Regency Taba Heights in 2003 and really enjoyed it. The beach is absolutely stunning. Great snorkelling, turtles, parrot fish, lionfish, and loads more. The hotel has a backdrop of craggy mountains which change colour from a deep red in the morning through to golden yellow and then purple at dusk. Magic! The Hyatt is a very nice hotel but can get overrun with large families of small children from over the Israeli border. Dining in the main restaurant can be frustrating due to their rudeness. However, if you are on half board, you get an allowance to spend in the a la carte Middle Eastern Restaurant which usually means that you pay no extra for dining there. The food is superb.
There are 3 massive freshwater pools and a saltwater lagoon. When we went there was nothing outside the hotel to do so you need to be happy with that. It may have changed though in two years.

RE: RE: Taba or Taba Heights that is the ?

by swisssinai

As Elizabeth says, Taba is a small town on the Egyptian - Israeli border. There are quite a few resort hotels dotted along the coast between Taba and Nuweiba some 65 km to the south, all bearing the word Taba in their name, i.e. SAS Radisson Taba, Sonesta Taba, Holiday Inn Taba, but they are not really in Taba. Not that it matters being inside or outside of Taba as the town is so small anyway.

Taba Heights is a large resort development in itself on a large plot of land by the sea some 10 km south of Taba. At present there are four hotels, all well spaced apart, ( Hyatt, Marriott, Sofitel and Wekallah - and I would also say that the Hyatt is perhaps the nicest ), plus a well run water sports & dive centre at the marina on the southern end of the development.

Taba Airport ( formerly Al Nakb Airport ) is located some 40 km away from both Taba and Taba Heights up on the Sinai plateau.

You'll find lots of details on Nuweiba and some on Taba on my VT pages.
