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.

      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.

      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.

      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 !
