It’s all about the wow factor at this Kempinski property in Soma Bay, a naturally-preserved peninsula on Egypt’s eastern shores.

The food here will impress too – try breakfast on a private boat at sunrise, formal Egyptian afternoon tea, lavish seafood barbecues and cocktails on the beach, where staff set up beanbags by the water’s edge every evening.
