Kempinski Soma Bay is a great value resort located less than an hours drive from the Hurghada International Airport. The resort is big with a total of 325 rooms, but everything is spread out and with space for everything. The beach is a 400 metres sandy beach facing the Red Sea and is a wonderful place to relax.
The rooms are up to the standards of Kempinski and very comfortable, with flatscreen Tv’s and wonderful views. Beds are comfortable, but the internet is slow and only possible by cable in the room. The suites have Bulgari products, while the rooms have local amenities.
The hotel has 4 restaurants and bars of high quality. Everything is very casual without dresscode, which is appreciated by guests having a relaxing holiday. Their dinner buffet is really great and impressive, especially for the price. Egypt is in general a great value for money destination due to low operation costs for the hotels compared to the rest of the world. That being said, I still believe Kempinski is doing an excellent job and some of the best value I have experienced in a 5 star hotel world wide.
The service is always the most important thing and Kempinski is doing a great job. I was especially impressed with the fast and polite service at the front desk. I also have to mention the excellent housekeeping as the room was spotless clean. The service in the restaurant is professional and I can’t recommend Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay enough, especially for the price.
My opinion: Great experience.
