Soma Bay, Red Sea Coast, Egypt

Egypt is moving ahead strongly with Mega Project development and many of these projects focus on the resort / vacation sector of the market. Soma Bay is one of Egypt's most exclusive Mega Resort Projects. A completely self contained ten million square meter community located on the "Red Sea Riviera," Soma Bay is only a 4 hour flight from Central Europe and offers some of the most beautiful sandy beaches of the Red Sea as well as year round sunshine and a temperate climate.


>> Resort Hotels. Soma Bay has 3 of the finest resort hotels in the world:

**La Residence des Cascades. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, La Residence is positioned on the highest point of the peninsula of Soma Bay. The hotel contains 250 guest rooms and suites that overlook the Cascades Championship Golf Course. La Residence is also home to one of the largest and most exclusive thalasso therapy centers in the world, Les Thermes Marins des Cascades.

**Sheraton Soma Bay Resort. The 312 room resort features Egyptian themed architecture in the spirit of the ancient Pharaohs and has one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Red Sea. It also features 3 sweet water pools... two of which are heated, windsurfing and sailing instruction, 3 tennis courts, a squash court, a gymnasium and a croquet court. Sheraton Soma Bay regularly wins accolades for the quality and friendliness of its service. It has been recognized by TUI in 2002 as the best Resort in Egypt!

**Robinson Club. This 300 room resort hotel offers a continuous program of sports activities and entertainment, including after dinner shows in its open-air theater. Sports facilities include diving, windsurfing, and sailing centers, seven tennis courts, a gymnasium and aerobics center, and two sweet water heated pools.

**Two more hotels will be opening soon in Soma Bay, The Breakers Diving and Surfing Lodge and Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay.

>> Cascades Golf and Country Club. One of Soma Bay's most attractive features, Cascades offers a Gary Player designed 18-hole, par 72 Championship Golf Course. Next to this course is a 9-hole, par 3 Challenge Course also designed by Gary Player. A Golf Academy and the Cascades Club House is located here as well.

>> Les Thermes Marins des Cascades. This Spa, as I noted earlier, is part of La Residence des Cascades and features thalasso therapy. This type of therapy is based on the curative properties of sea water and seaweed. The concept of thalasso therapy relies on the simultaneous use of all aspects of the marine environment with both a preventative and curative objective and according to Les Thermes:

'Treatments respond to the needs for relaxation, beauty, slimness, improved blood circulation and the relief of minor back and neck ailments. The effectiveness of the different treatments complement and reinforce one another, resulting in new vitality, improved form and more balanced health.'

>> Water Sports. Soma Bay, being located right on the Red Sea Coast, will have its own Marina and offer all kinds of water sports including:

- Scuba Diving
- Snorkeling
- Diving
- Kitesurfing
- Windsurfing

>> Resort Homes. For those who wish to purchase a residence, Soma Bay offers a variety of home choices:

- Bay Villas
- Reef Villas
- Golf Villas & Apartments
- Marina Apartments
- Soma Breeze Hotel Residences

All of these Soma Bay residences make a perfect second home getaway in what I consider to be one of the most beautiful resort destinations in the world.

Soma Bay is a total Mega Resort Project. It offers everything required for a relaxing first class holiday!
