La Residence Des Cascades Golf Resort & Thalasso Center of Hurghada, Egypt is a luxurious 5 star Resort within Soma Bay. Located within the year-round resort destination of Soma Bay on Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera, about 40 km from Hurghada International Airport. It positioned on the highest point of the Soma Bay peninsula, La Residence Des Cascades boats panoramic sea views from all sides.
La Residence is located at the center of a dramatic golf course which combines the best of links and desert features. The Cascades Championship Golf Course is designed by Gary Player, one of the "Big Three" (along with Jack Nicklaus & Arnold Palmer).
The 18 hole, par 72 course has lush green fairways that contrast dramatically with the rugged desert and the clear blue waters of the surrounding sea.
Adjacent to the course, is a 9 hole, par 3 Golf Academy Course, also designed by Gary Player. It offers both the beginner and the more advanced golfer the opportunity to practice a variety of shots with emphasis on the short game.
There are also extensive practice facilities, including a 60bay driving range, and several putting and pitching practice greens. Individual and group tuition by PGA Golf Professionals is also available.
The Hotel also houses Les Thermes Marins des Cascades, one of the largest and best equipped thalasso therapy centres in the world, operated in cooperation with les Thermes Marins de Saint-Malo in France.
The waters of the Red Sea are world famous for their teeming marine life and clear visibility. When it comes to snorkeling or scuba diving,Soma Bay offers more for everyone - from beginner to advanced diver. Directly off the coast, and in several reef clusters nearby, are some of the best dive sites to be found anywhere in the Red Sea. Soma Bay also offers ideal windsurfing & kite surfing conditions.
Private balconies are standard in all La Residence rooms. Each is air conditioned and provides plenty of space. All rooms are fitted with large bathrooms, including a separate bathtub and shower. Indoor and outdoor dining is offered at the Dunes restaurant, with views of the golf course and the Red Sea.
