    Location 4.12 /10

    The Intercontinental is located on the Bay of Abu Soma (or just Soma) south of Hurghada, 22 miles away from the airport and 7.5 miles north of Safaga. In the middle of nowhere, the hotel is located between the sea and the mountains. Luxor is only a 2-hour drive from the hotel.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The hotel complex consists of 450 rooms including 63 suites of various types. You can get to the rooms through big clear corridors floored with marble. The rooms are very large, at least 45 m² , junior suites are around 67 m². The rooms have light wood furniture and floral bedding (firm enough)- they are beautifully decorated. They all have a view of the sea (except some rooms on the ground floor) and a balcony. They are all supplied with amenities such as direct telephone for international calls, a mini-bar with tea and coffee kit, satellite television (45 channels), Internet connection, a safe ( free), air conditioning and a bathroom with bathrobes, hair dryer and quality welcome products.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    Recently opened (April 2004), the Intercontinental Abu Soma consists of an impressive main building, supplemented by several structures dedicated to housing guests, restaurants and sports activities. In the evening, the façade of the hotel is bathed in multi-coloured lights. Its lobby, 28 m in height, is partially illuminated by a huge stained-glass dome. In the midst, there is a bar surrounded by a few palm trees. A large rotunda accommodates a dozen shops of all kinds. Outside the hotel, there are 2 375 m² of swimming pool stretching between the rocks with an integrated space for children. In a small valley / trough covered with greenery, the kids' club offers supervised activities both indoors and outdoors. A second heated swimming pool (300 m²) is located in a complex devoted to various body treatments including a spa. The hotel also has stables for horses or camels so you can take a ride in the desert.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The hotel has 9 restaurants and bars, including a nightclub and a corner for the hookah (water pipe). The main restaurant "Café Stella", open all day, can accommodate 450 people at the same time. It serves international cuisine in buffet style, varied and carefully designed to please the eye, from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., from 12 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The room is vast and the ceiling, representing a sky scattered with white clouds and birds, was painted by hand. The Intercontinental has the distinction of hav?ng a Greek restaurant located in the middle of the garden. When entering the hotel, you can see a large frescol of the Greek islands. A restaurant with seafood specialities, a very pleasant Italian restaurant and a Lebanese restaurant decorated with style are all orchestrated by chefs whose cuisine reflects each restaurant's nationality. The furniture is chosen with great care to create an atmosphere reminiscent of the countries mentionned above. For drinks, try the many bars including a typical Victorian pub, equipped with billiard tables. A nice wine cellar with brands from many countries such as the French Veuve Cliquot champagne.

    Beach 9.20 /10

    The 1200 m long beach, with no coral, enjoys a pleasant setting, emphasized by a few palm trees rooted in the sand. Ideal for children, the difference in height is low. Allow about 20 m of walk to get water up to your shoulders. Swimming without sandals is possible. A pleasant walkway runs along the beach, inviting jogging enthusiasts. Located in a quite windy area, the beach is ideally suited for sports like kite surfing. It is equipped with sunshades, deckchairs with mattresses, folding screens, a large diving club and two clubs for professional windsurfing (one German and one English). In the distance there is a marina that can accommodate at least 50 boats.

    To know

    In 2004-2005, the hotel was recognized by the Ministry of Tourism as the second most beautiful hotel on the Red Sea . The clientele is composed mostly of Germans. The doctor lives in the hotel itself. A space is allotted especially for holding conventions. The superb golf course, with its own waterfalls, is located 10 minutes from the Intercontinental.

      This is the hotel known in Egypt as "The leading hotel of the world" ! High-quality accommodation, a golf course designed by Gary Player and a thalassotherapy centre at the cutting edge of technology makes this hotel an outstanding site. The accommodation for golfers is quite sophisticated and appropriate for active couples.

      So here's a great spot. Despite its imposing size, le Kempinski Soma Bay has been able to preserve the tranquillity and attention to detail you would expect from an upscale establishment. It offers a good compromise between a well-equipped resort and a relaxing spot for the eyes and the ears!

      A beautiful beach, numerous facilities, superb gardens and an airy setting all combine to make the Caribbean World Soma Bay a first class resort. Pity it's so difficult to find a quiet corner in this very international hive of tourist activity.

      With one foot in the water, the Sheraton Soma Bay is a replica on a lesser scale of the famous historical site of Karnak. Here, it is good to appreciate the time under the sun and enjoy the facilities located not far apart, namely the superb Cascades golf course with 18 holes and a thalassotherapy center.

      • Location 3.0

      Near Safaga, this unpretentious hotel offers facilities of all kinds to satisfy different kinds of customers. However, the combination of old fashion and lack of harmony does not enchant, nor does it exude charm or friendliness. Moreover, the restaurants do not appear to be maintained carefully. To be avoided by gourmet lovers !
