All rooms are equipped with the latest in-room technology while Westin’s signature Heavenly Bed will ensure that guests awake feeling renewed and energised.

The resort will also offer six restaurants, including an all-day dining restaurant, a café, a bar and a lounge while the extensive grounds will provide guests with the ideal place for relaxation and recreation.


Guests can enjoy a rejuvenating swim in the outdoor pool, an invigorating workout at the 24-hour Westin Workout Fitness Studio, or a leisurely walk at the adjacent beach.

Guests also have access to the idyllic Cascades Spa & Thalasso, one of the region’s most expansive wellness facilities.

Spanning 80,000 square feet, the spa features a saltwater lap pool as well as 65 treatment rooms that provide traditional massages and beauty treatments as well as the latest technology for aesthetic treatments and hydrotherapy.

Somabay is conveniently located 45 kilometres from Hurghada International Airport which receives a large number of direct flights from the UK.
