Introduction to Holidays in Soma Bay
Soma Bay is an exclusive resort which enjoys an idyllic location on a peninsula along on the Red Sea Riviera coastline, surrounded on all sides by the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea. The amazing mountains and desert landscapes provide a dramatic backdrop to Soma Bay and some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the area add to the appeal.
Holidays in Soma Bay are peaceful and relaxing and if you enjoy water-sports, golf or want pampering in one of the region’s largest spa and thalasso centres, Soma Bay is the place for you.
The reefs of Soma Bay are untouched by the masses, so in great condition. Snorkeling and diving here is a must, as the marine life found just a few fin kicks from shore is some of the best on the Red Sea. In addition flat, shallow waters coupled with perfect winds are great for wind and kite surfing.
One of Egypt’s best golf courses, The Cascades golf course, lies in the middle of the resort and if you’re a keen golfer, this course is not to be missed.
Soma Bay is fortunate to be home to Les Thermes Marins Spa and thalasso centre which has an unrivalled reputation and offers a menu of treatments and extensive facilities hard to beat.
Located only about 250 kms away from Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and Queens, Karnak and Luxor Temples, Soma Bay is a perfect place from which to take day trips and excursions or even combine with a longer stay as part of a twin, multi centre or tailor made holiday itinerary.
