Our yoga retreat in Egypt is the perfect winter escape to a gorgeous white sandy beach, yoga by the sea, sailing and snorkeling, day trips to pharaoh tombs and ancient Egyptian sites, and a healthy dose of delicious hummus and tabouleh! All wrapped up with the most wonderful service and attention to detail by our Egyptian friends at the stunning 5* Kempinski Hotel on the Red Sea. This is pure luxury.
We have people joining us from all over the world, solo travelers and all yoga levels are welcome, from beginners to more advanced, we’ll modify classes so you can practice at our own pace. And the weather at the end of November is perfect – warm and sunny for swims in the sea and dips in the pool, but not too hot so we can still practice yoga outdoors under our shaded yoga terrace.
Come discover Egypt with us and enjoy a week of warm sunshine on a relaxing beach, with an added dose of culture and history to stimulate the senses – we’ll be there to take care of all the logistics so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
What to expect
We’ve found the most exclusive beach location on the Red Sea to host our yoga retreat in Egypt. Soma Bay is the ideal setting – a beautiful 5* resort on a gorgeous beach with a natural laid-back feel.
There’s peace and tranquility, we’ll spend time relaxing on the beach, we’ll practice yoga on a covered terrace just steps from the sea, splurge on spa treatments and enjoy delicious meals. And for the more adventurous – Luxor and the Valley of the Kings can easily be visited on a day trip, a must see! As well as several other breathtaking ancient Egyptian sites nearby.
We’ll have dinners together and do some things as a group, and we’ll plan day trips and excursions, but we know that solo-time is important to recharge and relax, so we always allow for that space.
Where we are going
Where is the yoga retreat located?
Our yoga retreat in Egypt is located in the exclusive upscale resort of Soma Bay, on the Red Sea (see Soma Bay on a map), just 30 minutes south of Hurghada, but without all the crowds.
Soma Bay is not touristy and you won’t find package holidays groups – just people in the know, enjoying a break in a peaceful place.
The 5* Kempinski hotel is on a peaceful quiet beach, with all the charm of local Egyptian culture, and all the modern necessities to make this a truly luxurious escape.
And we’ll be there to show you around, take care of everything, organize dinners and activities, and offer you an unforgettable experience!
There are direct flights to Hurghada from several international cities.

5* Kempinski Hotel
Our yoga retreat in Egypt will take place at the stunning 5* Kempinski Hotel – if you’re looking for absolute luxury, this is it. The Kempinski Hotel was voted the #1 hotel on the Red Sea and is unanimously considered to be the most high-end hotel in the region.
It resembles an ancient Moorish fortress, mixing contemporary European and Egyptian styles. It has a stunning entrance, and a series of pools, lagoons and waterfalls flowing down to a white sandy beach. The hotel’s customer service is full of warm Egyptian hospitality, and the feeling of peace is heavenly.
We’ll stay in large modern rooms with private balconies and lovely views of the Red Sea. Internet is included, as is free access to the gym, sauna, steamroom, jacuzzi and health club pool.
There’s also beach volleyball, guided snorkeling trips, aqua-gym, intro classes to golf and tennis, a cooking class and several boat trips.
Soma Bay has many dining options and we’ll have a chance to explore various restaurants and cuisines during the yoga retreat. The Kempinski hotel has five restaurants, including a seafood restaurant, a pan-Asian restaurant, and a traditional Egyptian restaurant, which is fantastic.
The local Egyptian food is full of healthy delicious veggies, with a variety of fish and meat dishes, as well as casseroles made with grains and pulses. We don’t have any restrictions on food and drinks, so this is a great way to experience the delicious local cuisine and immerse yourself in the culture.
And of course there will always be western-style choices for those who prefer not to venture into unknown food territory! Along with a nice glass of wine.
Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga
We offer two yoga classes a day on our yoga retreat in Egypt: a morning Vinyasa flow class to get your heart going, and a slower Yin class in the afternoons. Both classes are suitable for all levels.
