Hotel Hyatt Regency Taba Heights Hotel 5 star

Taba Heights - Taba Taba, Egypt
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Hyatt Regency was the first hotel to open in the Taba Heights resort village and is still the nicest of them all. Its location, its original architectural qualities and its gardens are its main assets. Spacious and full of surprises, it offers entertainment in French due to a Framissima hotel on-site and was our favourite hotel in Taba.

    Location 9.0 /10

    The Hyatt hotel, located in Taba Heights resort village, is approximately a 45 minute drive from Taba Airport. Apart from the resort's facilities, the only things surrounding the hotel are the turquoise blue sea of Aqaba Gulf and the mountainous desert of Sinaï. The village of Taba, some 10 mi to the north, and the small seaside village of Nuweiba, 35 mi to the south, don't have any entertainment to offer and very little in the way of shops.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The establishment's 426 guest rooms come in 4 categories (excluding the suites) with the only varying factor being the view: mountains, gardens, lagoon, or sea. Plus, all of them have a big balcony. The interior decorating is simple. The rooms follow a clever design, with white walls and furniture made of light-coloured wood and rattan. Apart from the carpets with modern patterns, the interior decorating is minimal. For its part, the bathroom is big and includes a tropical shower. The level of amenities is generally quite decent, but the lack of bathrobes, flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffee making facilities is regrettable. You will have air-conditioning, a hair-dryer, a TV, hospitality products, and a mini-bar (full) though.
    The concept in the lagoon rooms is particularly clever (they have an artificial seawater pool). They are quiet and surrounded by a nice terrace with your own personal deckchair in front of your room, facing the lagoon... Just perfect.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Sometimes older is better. Built in 2000, the Hyatt Regency has beautiful lush gardens, a rare feature in Taba. Also worthy of mention is the proximity of the mountains and the resort's best snorkelling spots. Covering a large piece of land, it has a unique architecture that includes 47 two storey buildings. The common areas and rooms are widely spread out and there are 3 large outdoor swimming pools in different areas. One of them is an Olympic-size pool, perfect for swimming laps, the second is a winding pool, and the third is built on 3 levels with connecting waterfalls.
    The welcoming lobby includes potted plants and opens onto the Palm court, a very pleasant patio with large cushions so that you can relax eastern style! To the side, there is the On-the-Rocks bar, which definitely is worth a visit for its wall completely covered with little nooks where bottles are stored. It's a very popular place for drinks. The beach and the swimming pool also each have their own bar. For sports enthusiasts, there is a gym, 2 tennis courts, and various water sports on offer. Relaxation is the main theme of the well-being centre (bubble baths, sauna, Turkish baths, and pretty massage rooms).

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The Hyatt Regency Taba has 4 restaurants but only the Limoncello Mediterranean Cafe Restaurant is included in the all-inclusive formula. All meals are served as a buffet in a large room with yellow walls and a high ceiling. The setting is particularly pleasant and the many tables for 2 or 3 allow guests to dine in an intimate atmosphere. This being said, and despite the fact that there is a different theme every night of the week, the buffet is a bit repetitive.
    The other 3 restaurants are à la carte. If you want to eat outside, the EL Fresco serves Italian cuisine (pasta and pizzas) for a lunch by the pool. Seafood is served in the Breeze restaurant, with its round terrace in the middle of a swimming pool. Finally, the Tanour serves high quality Lebanese cuisine.
    Since the Hyatt is part of the Taba Heights resort village, you can enjoy any of the 5 restaurants of the 'up-town village': Mexican, Indian, Asian, Belgian, and Eastern. However, you can also book a table in one of the resorts other hotels (a total of 14 restaurants).

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Like its neighbours in Taba Heights, the Hyatt Regency affords direct access to a 2.5 mi beach that belongs to the resort. The portion that faces the hotel has deckchairs and mattresses laid out in pairs with palm leaf parasols and woven wind barriers. It's very pleasant.
    As everywhere in Taba, the setting is particularly agreeable, opposite the Saudi coast and with crystal-clear turquoise water. The coral reef is only a few meters away from the shoreline and it's a bit like swimming in an aquarium. The jetty provides easy access to some of the best snorkelling spots at the resort. Grab your gear and hop in! However, we highly recommend the use of plastic sandals or diving footwear. Simply getting into the water is unpleasant if you're barefoot because of the numerous stones in the sand.
    Finally, the Hyatt Regency offers privileged access to the Waterworld centre that allows you (extra charge) to enjoy snorkelling, diving, or many other water sports.

    To know

    The Hyatt is one of the 5 hotels that form the Taba Heights resort village. Staying here means that you enjoy easy access to a 2.5 mi stretch of beach, an 18 hole golf course, a water sports and diving centre called Waterworld, and to the 'uptown village': a shopping street that includes 5 à la carte restaurants. The hotels and various entertainment areas are connected by a free shuttle service with shuttles every 20 minutes.
    The hotel includes the Framissima Taba, but only part of the establishment carries the label (a restaurant and a bar with the all-inclusive formula).

        Un hôtel vraiment haut de gamme avec des chambres très bien tenues. Un cadre général très agréable avec un jardin foisonnant et parfaitement entretenu. Les piscines sont de qualité et la nourriture au Limoncello suffisamment variée pour plaire à tous. Le seul léger bémol serait le manque de boissons dans la formule "All-Inclusive" ainsi que l'absence de WiFi gratuit.

      • Advantages

        ? Le cadre ? Les piscines ? Les chambres ? La jetée juste à côté de l'eau pour aller faire du snorkelling

      • Disavantages

        En janvier, c'est un petit paradis lorsqu'on quitte la grisaille française. Jardins superbes, installations luxueuses, personnel charmant.

      • Advantages

        Lieu de départ pour les visites de Pétra, Jérusalem et le mont Sinaï.

      • Disavantages

        Il ne faut pas vouloir avoir envie de connaître l'Egypte à Taba, l'hotel est coupé du monde, on n'y cotoie que des occidentaux.

        Un très beau Framissima, dommage que les tout-inclus ne se limite qu'à un bar de l'hôtel. Sinon c'est vraiment magnifique.

      • Advantages

        les coraux sont juste au bord de la plage, un véritable aquarium ! amenez votre masque !

        Il n'y a pas de vrai ville à Taba. Le buffet est toujours un peu le même, lassant au bout d'une semaine.

      This is without a doubt the most peaceful hotel in Taba Heights, and you will find neither rowdy entertainment nor music by the pool here. What sets the Marriott Beach Resort Taba Heights apart from the other hotels in the area is the clear intention to attract holidaymakers searching for comfort and tranquillity, as well as golfers. One section of the establishment (100 rooms) is also 'child free'.

      This Sofitel hotel is all about the grandeur, its huge lobby incorporating an arched roof depicting the night sky, complemented in turn by the particularly elaborate Oriental-inspired architecture. Its Sinbad Tower has also become symbolic of the Taba Heights resort. This sparkling hotel may not offer the warmest of surroundings, but the facilities here are excellent, making it a great place for those looking for a relaxing or even an active holiday by the sea.

      This, the only hotel in Taba with over 500 guest rooms, is definitely not lacking in attributes. Built in 2006, it is now the largest and newest hotel in the resort of Taba Heights. However, even when it is full, it doesn't feel too cramped, and the InterContinental has even managed to retain little intimate areas for its guests. To sum up, this is a beautiful hotel for a seaside holiday filled with sports activities, ideal for couples, families or groups of friends.

      The small and only 4 star hotel in Taba Heights, the Three Corners El Wekala, is built high up in the resort village, offering pleasant views of the Red Sea but without direct access to the beach. Covering just a small area, this hotel mainly accommodates families, so the swimming pool area is not necessarily a relaxing place to be! Only holidaymakers who like to socialise will feel at home in this hotel, which became a Thomas Cook Holiday Village in October 2010.

However, a closer look reveals that this club Marmara establishment certainly doesn't deserve the 4 stars that it boasts.
