Hotel InterContinental Beach Resort Taba Heights Hotel 4 star
Easyexperts
10 Taba Heights Taba, Egypt
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 8.0 /10

    The InterContinental is about a 45-minute drive away from the airport of Taba. Other than the facilities of the resort itself, the hotel can boast being surrounded by the turquoise sea of the Gulf of Aqaba and the Sinai mountain desert. The village of Taba, 10 mi north of the hotel, and the small harbour town of Nuweiba, 35 mi south of the hotel, have very little of real interest and very few shops.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The 503 guest rooms of the InterContinental are very functional, spacious and bright. Their decor is subtle, and light colours dominate. We particularly liked the 'refreshment and snack' area, composed of a mini-bar, tea and coffee-making facilities, a bottle of water re-stocked every day, and a basket of sweet and savoury products. The standard rooms all have a terrace with a thatched roof, which is perfect in summer as it provides some much needed shade from the sun.
    Whether you reserve a double or a twin room, all of the beds are king size. The bathrooms are also very spacious, and even the green-tiled tropical showers are huge. In terms of amenities, nothing is missing here: the hospitality kit, for example, is more than complete, and includes bathrobes and slippers.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The guest rooms of the InterContinental are spread across three buildings, and all of the common areas are located in the semi-circular main building which encircles the two main pools. Here, you will find both the bar of the circular lobby, the 'Cross road', and its terrace with a view of the Red Sea, as well as the buffet restaurant. The large patio, where shows are performed in the evenings, and the bar called Arches, open till 2:00am, are also adjacent to the main building. Both the lagoon (filled with sea water) and its very pleasant Lagoon restaurant-bar, and the children's club, are little further away.
    Although all three buildings are imposing, the architecture is rather successful, their façades covered with the arches of the large balconies of each room. This hotel, built in 2006, is in excellent condition, right down to the finest details. In terms of the detail paid to facilities here, hats off to the paddling pool sheltered from the sun by vellums and surrounded by comfortable chairs for parents keeping an eye on their children. For drinks, no less than 7 bars will give you the opportunity to vary your choice of beverage: sitting in the pool at the Splash, by the beach at the Reef (particularly pleasant when the sun is setting), or in a well-being atmosphere at the Oxygen, etc.
    Sports enthusiasts will find two tennis courts, a squash court, a miniature golf course, a volleyball court and a beach football pitch at their disposal.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Just like its neighbours, the InterContinental offers services of a high standard... right down to the entrance to the buffet restaurant. Although it is far from being catastrophic, the all-inclusive option does make it difficult to provide gastronomic food, and in spite of the set theme meals and the large choice of dishes available, it cannot help being repetitive. The buffet restaurant room is nevertheless quite pleasant, and its large capacity means that you won't have trouble getting seated. There is also the possiblity of having lunch at the grill restaurant beside the pool.
    Those who enjoy their food will be spoilt for choice at the à la carte restaurants (not included in the cost of the room, of course). The El Mar serves delicious fish and seafood under high blue-grey vaults, the Birds Nest serves fine Thai cuisine, and the Lagoon offers tapas and mezzes in a peaceful area, out on its beautiful wooden terrace.
    Moreover, since the InterContinental is an integral part of the resort of Taba Heights, guests can dine at all 5 restaurants in the 'Uptown Village': Mexican, Indian, Asian, Belgian and Oriental, as well as all of the à la carte restaurants of the complex, upon reservation (14 restaurants in total).

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Just like its neighbours in Taba Heights, the InterContinental provides direct access to the 3 mi long beach of the complex. The area of beach right next to the hotel is set out with cushioned deckchairs, grouped in pairs under palm-thatched parasols and sheltered by woven windbreaks. Lovely!
    As is the case everywhere in Taba, the setting, facing the Saudi coasts, is wonderful. The water is delightful, turquoise and clear. The coral 'potatoes' are just a few metres away from the shore, and you can swim among them, as if you were in an aquarium. Here's your chance to have a go at some scuba-diving! The downside of this is that you will have to be very careful with your feet: whether you choose plastic sandals or diving shoes, we highly recommend you wear some sort of amphibious shoes as it is difficult to even get to the water because of the many stones strewn in the sand.
    Finally, the InterContinental offers particularly easy access to the Waterworld centre, where snorkelling, diving, and a great deal of water sports are available.

    To know

    The InterContinental is one of the five hotels that makes up the resort of Taba Heights. Staying there means easy access to the 3 mi long beach, the 18-hole golf course, Waterworld, which is the water sports and diving club, and the 'Uptown Village', where you will find a street with shops and five à la carte restaurants. Two free shuttles, which run every 20 minutes, are available to take guests to and from the hotels and these bustling areas.

      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.

      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.

      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.
