For years we go to this hotel Kempinski Soma Bay always again and we look forward to a holiday in a very safe area for us as perceived in the beautiful Egypt. Here begins each day with a fabulous view from the terrace to the sea with a breakfast, which leaves nothing to be desired. It is simply fantastic! The staff at the reception, in the service, at the beach and in the kitchen. All of them are such a great team, anywhere in the world as we have in this attention, friendliness, cleanliness and honesty experienced. We say 'thank ... you' to the gm, mr ganchev, to the front office manager mr Samir and mr shaaban his assistant, and the f&b manager mrs Heike helmet. Special thanks are due to mrs Daria nikiforova, the us through their competence in the field guest relation has optimally cared for. We were in the gym excellent work by mr abd al demanded rhamam, and our room always on the new erglänzte, especially because mr Sayed made, that we daily in hygienic and always neat premises in the evening to go could peace. The cooks team of mr Tarek ghoniem us and also the other guests every wish from our eyes. It couldn't be any better. We should particularly emphasize the service each employee, because almost all friendly, attentive and fast were. That so many staff in the meantime a speak good german, not least the perfect management should lie. We are happy, that it the hotel kempinski in Soma Bay returns. From us the hotel gets two other stars to the previous five. We are already looking forward to our next stay at the december. Until then, we wish the whole team and the best companie. read hotel review

Nice, helpful service, not pushy, but always present. The buffet was always a temptation with too many delights - new every day, always differently. The whole area with a great garden and pool area was great clean and also at the beach directly in front of the hotel the beach was cleaned every day. We wonderfully comfortable, guests like staying with friends. For people, which want to relax and unwind, relax and want to relax, a great place to relax. read hotel review

In january we were 2014 for 11 days in the Kempinski Soma Bay and it was a dream holiday. We were 11 days in paradise on earth to spend. It was the first day as' home ' to come. This hotel left nothing to be desired! The rooms are large, also the bathroom was very nice and very clean. We had a room Very close to the beach with a lovely balcony. The beach was beautiful, very well maintained, fine sand, turquoise water and the pool heated. We felt from the first moment very comfortable, especially the staff was. It ... was a feeling like at home to be. The staff from the front desk, the staff at the beach and the swimming pool of the house keeping, the waiters, the cooks also chef and manager all very warm, friendly and tried hard to fulfill all wishes. Each individual asked each day, if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. We had nothing, as house from (from the hotel, and staff) all wishes already were met. It was at every meal asked, if everything was fine and if wishes - all special requests - such very gladly fulfilled. We had no special requests, since everything was excellent. We were very happy. The food is a dream, so much selection and everything was freshly prepared. Conclusion: dream vacation in paradise! We have our paradise found in this hotel. Again any time and will to our friends and famous recommend it. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the management and staff of the kempinskis Soma Bay, It would be too much you all in the name! read hotel review

We had a beautiful stay in a sea view room. Despite a low utilization were all deals alive. Particularly remarkable is the very friendly staff that always all requests in the every whim. The sunny 23 degrees are perfect for sunbathing or swimming in the heated pool, but also in the sea, you could just go around to cool off. We definitely want to come back. read hotel review
