The Breakers - Soma Bay

Breakers Soma Bay Resort is located right by the sea and it was one of the first “water sports lifestyle” hotels to open in the Red Sea. The vibrant house reef located directly opposite the resort will give you the opportunity to dive headfirst into the most amazing adventure of your life.

The Breakers is a novelty, a water sports hotel, a home for demanding individuals who want to relax completely. With lots of high-quality interior design, excellent cuisine, friendly service, and direct ocean location it is a delight for all senses to stay at the Breakers. Here you will be waking up in the morning as the sun glistens into your room and gently caresses your face followed by a couple of steps onto the balcony and the ocean will shimmer in a vibrant turquoise blue.

There are 173 comfortable rooms fitted with everything you require to start your day rested and relaxed. Comfy beds with extra-long duvets, generous shower, free WiFi and a balcony with a splendid view to the sea, the mountains, the pool or the golf course wait for you.

In the morning you can plunge into tempting smell of coffee, an omelette prepared according to your preferences, fresh fruit salad, some gluten free cornbread or maybe a sweet pancake? Indulge in a heavenly breakfast to create the right foundation for a great day. In the evenings you eagerly wait to anticipate what delicious and creative dishes the chefs have prepared for you. Enjoy a different themed dinner every night, in a relaxed and chilled atmosphere, from Nubian, Arabic to BBQ; from fish to meat to vegetarian to vegan. And for special requests and allergies, there will always be a solution.

From your breakfast table to the reef in just a few minutes! The 420 metres long jetty takes you to one of the most beautiful house reefs in the Red Sea. 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.
