Soma Bay

Exclusive luxury holiday resort destination- the jewel in the crown of the Red Sea coast.

With diverse luxury hotels, world-famous spa and golf course, this is pristine and varied diving away from the crowds. Welcome to Soma Bay –  the Red Sea’s most peaceful and luxurious holiday destination.

Soma Bay offers an unparalleled opportunity for beginners and advanced divers to enjoy iconic sea life and diverse dive sites. Its renowned House Reef, stretching over a kilometre, is accessible from a 420m long jetty. From Soma Bay Marina, a fleet of dive boats access the many dive sites in the Safaga region, which include coral gardens, walls, drop-offs and wrecks suitable for all levels of experience; Tubya Arbaa, Panorama Reef, Abu Kafan, Shaab Shehr and the huge wreck of the Salem Express.

At Marina Centre, enjoy a fine dining experience with a range of restaurants serving menus of the world. All Soma Bay hotels are connected by a complimentary shuttle bus.

Guests on half board or all-inclusive have a choice of a wider selection of dining options thanks to the ‘dine around’ service in selected hotels. Here you can transfer the meal plan from your hotel to any of the Soma Bay restaurants listed below*.

Dive Centre

Orca Dive Clubs’ large, purpose-built dive centre is well equipped and affords an almost effortless holiday diving experience. The centre has an in-house photo and video facility with skilled photo professionals on staff, spacious changing facilities and showers, classrooms with AV equipment, a bar and personal lockers.


Don’t dive? There’s still plenty to entertain you with a choice of snorkelling sites, most of which are easily accessible straight from shore or from the jetty where you can snorkel south to the tip of Bay Point and watch plenty of marine life and beautiful multi-coloured coral. Other shore-based snorkelling routes include a crescent-shaped string of coral clusters from the eastern tip of Robinson Club’s beach to Bay Point. There are also a number of snorkelling sites that can also be reached by a short boat trip.
