The beautiful destination of Soma Bay offers year round sun, so guests don't need to be stuck in a stuffy gym to get fit as the hotel offers a huge variety of outdoor sports, perfect for lapping up that Vitamin D!

Scuba Diving and Kite-Surfing

Thanks to its flat water conditions, fantastic sandy beaches and side shore winds, Soma Bay is the ideal location to try your hand at kite-surfing or scuba diving amongst some of the world's most beautiful reefs. Professionals and beginners alike are fully catered for with video and headset training aids that make learning and improving their wind-surfer skills easier and safer. The Soma Bay Dive Centre also has a 420 metre jetty that extends directly to the reef with electric cars available to carry equipment and divers for effortless access to Soma Bay's underwater world, perfect for beginners just finding their ocean feet!

Championship Golf

The Kempinski Soma Bay also has full use of the fantastic Cascades Golf and Country Club offering world-class golf in fantastic sunshine all year round. This spectacular desert-style course, designed by international golfing legend Gary Player, consists of an 18-hole, par 72 course, a PGA golf academy and an extensive driving range. The immaculate Cascades also boasts a 9 hole, 3 par course for less advanced players, and a 60 bay driving range.

Grass and Beach Tennis

Their beach tennis sessions and lessons are the perfect way to combine the fun of this fast-paced sport with the sun, sea and sand of the beach. With a mix of volleyball and tennis rules, players play with standard racquets and a special depressurised ball always on the volley - a brilliantly addictive version of tennis to try! If you do feel more at home back on the grass, the hotel also boasts four artificial grass courts for their guests, a terrain which has now become a rarity for tennis vacations.
