somabay

A little piece of heaven on earth!

Somabay combines outstanding nature with unbeatable leisure activities. For sport fanatics, the peninsula is a true dream destination. All that just four hours flight time from Central Europe. With only two statistical days of rain per year and mild winters, the water temperature is above 20 degrees all year. The hottest months are July and August, with average temperatures of 34 degrees. However, the heat feels pleasant as the dry desert winds keep the humidity low. As a result, Somabay has the best weather conditions all year long.

Because we care:
ENVIRONMENTAL FACTS

The Breakers hotel is located on a peninsula that has developed into
a sanctuary for quite a number of species. It is idyllically situated between
the shores of the Red Sea and a desert mountain range, far away from any
traffic or industrial areas. The meadows of the golf course, the reefs and
crystalline waters that are due to their geographical situation exposed to the
winds from the North are our partners in nature.

LOCATION

Our electrical energy is derived from the hydroelectric dam in Aswan.
Hydropower, as well as solar and wind power count amongst the renewable
sources of energy and thus are free of any CO2 emissions.

RENEWABLE SOURCES OF ENERGY

Once per month all employees from our departments get together for our
so called “clean up day.” We collect all the rubbish and debris that is lying
around and we check the cleanliness of the whole hotel compound and
its neighborhood.

CLEAN UP DAY

In accordance with international standards, our toilets are equipped with dual
flush economy buttons. We use low voltage halogen bulbs, LED TV,
central power-off keycards etc.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

Our daily beach clean-up as well as a lot of educational work during which
we instruct divers, swimmers and snorkelers about respectful diving and
snorkeling practices, avoid unnecessary pressure on the delicate coral reefs.

CORAL REEF PROTECTION

Above water, we manage our biodiversity by passing on herbicides, instead
using biological insect attractants and protecting beneficial organisms such
as geckoes, dragonflies and bats to keep the natural balance amongst
flying insects in check.

NATURAL BALANCE

We also continue “sustainability” when it comes to the dishes we offer
in our restaurants. Our chefs will only offer fish that has not been rated an
endangered species according to the WWF fish guide.
