My husband and I celebrated our marriage at the Kempinski Hotel, Soma Bay on Sept 4th this year. We were already civilly married, but chose to have our ceremony at this hotel. We had 40 guests from multiple countries come together there, all of whom stayed about a week, and it was an unforgettable experience for everyone. The hotel itself... More

This is the second time for us to stay in Kempinski Soma Bay in 2 years time. It is even much better than the first time in 2012. It is different and unique in many things rather than many other hotels. The staff are striving to please the guests...from the front office, staff on the beach and pools (they run... More

What an amazing experience - from the time we got there to the time we left, the Kempinski offered superior service, and made my sister's wedding something out of a fairytale. They happily accomodated any request we had, whether it was a BBQ by the beach for the wedding party or bachelorette party at the Cascades (nearby Spa/golf) or arranging... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left all the staff we encountered at the Kempinski Hotel, Soma Bay were professional, friendly and hardworking. The check-in staff were efficient and the "Ladies in Red" are knowledgeable and helpful. The pool attendants were courteous and always smiling, despite working in the extreme heat all day. Basha, our room attendant,... More

Prime location - no doubt, excellent built environment except for landscaping that calls for an extra boost. Beach is beautiful. Crows are a big bother, though!! Food not exceptional except at the laguna club house - where service and food quality etc were amazing.
