We have just got back from 6 nights at the Kempinski which was our 6th visit.As mentioned it is 45 minutes from Hurghada airport where we made a fast exit because of the present situation in Egypt.
In Soma Bay we noticed little of this except that the hotel was running at 30 percent of its capacity.We had dinner twice at the Cascades Hotel which also has a buffet,much appreciated, and is cheaper.You can just take the shuttle bus fronm the Kempinski.
After a bad start, we had asked for a quiet room and they gave us a room just above the bar where loud music was played in the evening,we were given a lovely suite in cluster 3 at the end of a corridor and it was perfectly quiet.
The manager,George from Bulgaria, could not have been more helpful nor efficient especially as he was off to China the next day.
It was about 30 degrees there last week with a strong breeze.There is not much to be done in the surroundings, there is a golf course at the Cascades Hotel and a fantastic Spa with very good therapists and Swiss prices!Just 5 minutes by minibus from the hotel.
We found the staff not as lighthearted as usual,well they have quite a lot to worry about especially if they are from Cairo.But the service was excellent,also the room service with a great quality bed and good sheets.
The food is excellent and varied, we had a good rest and came back to our daily life in good shape and well rested.
