Beautiful hotel, with very friendly and attentive staff. Nicely furnished rooms and pool area, pretty beach and good restaurants. Well-maintained gym and spa area. Overall, highly recommended. If you are keen on diving, the Orca Dive Club (located by the Breakers Hotel, approx. 20 minute walk along the beach), is also recommended.

I've been to Egypt before, both on business and pleasure trips, so I'm aware that there is a gulf between perception and reality in traveler's expectations. I'd have to say though that the Kempinski Soma Bay exceeded my expectations in pretty much every way. We booked a Laguna Club room with a spectacular view over the bay and took advantage... More
