What can one say? A wonderful hotel staffed by extraordinarily friendly and attentive personnel. Our large room was light, clean and well-appointed, the food was varied and well-prepared at the different restaurants, but especially good at the Bamboo Shoot where the delicious Thai dishes enthralled us. A special mention to the pool and beach staff who could not have been...

The resort is very attractive and the service on all levels excellent. The rooms are very comfortable. The food is superb (the best we have enjoyed at Soma BVay so far). The lounge concept is not a success: very expensive and does not offer a lot of benefits: A normal all inclusive formula works much better.

We had a fantastic stay. We stayed in a club room with sea views and is highly recommended due to the access to the club lounge that it provides throughtout the day. The food was exquisite with fresh juices. We had more than our fair share of mango juices. Would definitely come again.
