March 2010 993

The Breakers Diving and Surfing Lodge is Egypt’s first watersports lifestyle hotel based on the shores of the Red Sea and offering ideal conditions for diving, windsurfing and kite surfing.

Located in the exclusive Soma Bay resort, the laid-back, four-star property is directly opposite the bay’s magnificent house reef and adjacent to the well-equipped Orca Dive Club.

There are 173 comfortable, modern guest rooms, most of which have sea views, and a range of facilities from a restaurant right on the seashore to a roof garden, sauna and gym.

But the real draw here is the watersports with options on offer to please veteran adventure seekers and first timers alike.

Some of the best diving in the Red Sea is found in Soma Bay and the surrounding area. The hotel’s purpose-built diving centre is situated on a 1-km stretch of house reef that is packed with diverse marine life and a fleet of dive boats accesses the many beautiful dive sites in the Soma Bay and Safaga region.

The Breakers is also a good choice for those wanting to take advantage of Soma Bay’s perfect windsurfing and sailing conditions.

And for speed and thrill-seekers, the lodge is the perfect base to try kite surfing being just a few minutes from what is recognised as one of the best spots in the world for kite surfing.

Soma Bay’s spectacular bay offers fantastic flat water conditions, coupled with perfect side shore winds that range from four to eight BFT all year round.

The wind is accelerated by the close proximity of the mountains to the sea. This also makes for one of the most beautiful spots for kite surfing in the whole of Egypt
Soma Bay’s 7BFT Kite House is a complete purpose-built kite surf teaching and testing centre with state-of-the-art equipment for teaching and hire and professionals and beginners are both catered for with video and headset training aids which make learning to kite surf and improving your technique easier and safer.

Kite surfer, diver and all-round water man Stefan Reichl is the general manager of The Breakers Diving and Surfing Lodge, Soma Bay.
