Sheraton Resort

The Sheraton Soma Bay Resort is a stunning beachfront hotel inspired by Luxor's Karnak Temple Complex. The resort’s secluded location on a small peninsula close to Safaga, just 18.6 miles from Hurghada is the ideal gathering place for friends and family where you are just steps away from a family-friendly aqua park, pristine sand and numerous water sports.

Although the hotel’s design reflects Egypt’s ancient history with themes of pharaohs and pyramids, modern facilities and design are featured across the whole building including a large outdoor swimming pool, 18-hole golf course designed by Gary Player, an aqua park and a modern health club and spa services.

At the Sheraton Soma Bay Resort, you can recharge in your spacious room offering a tranquil oasis from your balcony overlooking the pool, the gardens, or the crystal-clear Red Sea waters.

Delicious dining is always on offer! You can choose to dine outdoors on the sprawling terrace of the International Restaurant, overlooking the sea or try the cosy Italian restaurant and watch the chefs prepare authentic Italian fare. Copper Crescent is a popular lunch spot with cool breezes and exotic aromas in the open air. L'Abydos Brasserie is a smart-casual restaurant open for breakfast and dinner, serving delectable cuisine in its dining room and outside on the terrace overlooking the Red Sea. You also have the option to visit the Sea View and the Sea Food restaurant or grab a snack from the Soma Splash Bar at the end of your dive.

The Orca Dive Club Soma Bay is located at the Breakers Soma Bay, a 5-minute walk from the resort over the bridge to the drop-off reef at Ras Abu Soma. Orca Divers will cater to all diver levels and ship you to the reefs of Tobia, Panorama, Abo Khafan or even to the wreck of “Salem Express” where you will have the opportunity to come up close and personal with fish of all kind and sometimes even bigger inhabitants: turtles, barracudas or rays are regular visitors.
