We made the very long drive from Cairo to Soma Bay to stay at the Kempinski over the recent Eid holiday. The property is beautiful and sprawling - endless pools circled by a lazy river, with several restaurants, and a pristine cabana-filled beach. The rooms are clean and spacious, if bland design-wise. Like ours, most have a sea view from...

Usually you need a sense of tolerance & humour in Egyptian Hotels and to remind yourself that actually you are in the middle of nowhere and cannot expect the service levels you do in Britain.
