Can hardly find any matching words to describe this wonderful and charming place that is beyond all my (our) expectations. Not only did the lobby impress us from the first moment we put our feet in that hotel... but also the tidy room, the perfect customer service throughout our stay was exceptional. The breathtaking view during breakfast was just another...

Really lovely hotel in a great setting on the red sea, with crystal clear water and coral reefs you can walk out to. Hotel staff were great, professional but friendly and brilliant with the kids, rooms were large, well-kitted out and spotless, and the food was really good as was the ambiance of the restaurant. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Writing this a few hours before checkout. The hotel is exceptional in many ways, not just when it comes to customer service and employees, but for guests as well, who are equally friendly and always smiling. If I hadn't know better, I'd say the hotel staff interviews guests beforehand :-) However. The hotel, having German administration, as I've learned, seems...

I spent New Year here with my family and we had the most fantastic time. The staff were so friendly. The room had a great view of the sea and easy access to the beach. The breakfast was exceptional (we helped ourselves to champagne and fresh orange juice!) as were the dinners. Brilliant kids club for my little sister.

Soma bay is my new favorite beach in Egypt and Kempinski is a great hotel. The sea is clear blue and a very enjoyable swim! Hotel is clean and the breakfast and dinner buffet are amazing and serves truly gourmet meals. Restaurant servers and chefs are excellent. Special thanks to Chef Fathi, Chef Islam and our waitress Nadia Mohamed.
