The Mövenpick Resort Aswan has a beautiful dramatic setting, surrounded by the Nile.
The peaceful position on the 23-acre Elephantine Island – one of Egypt's most ancient and enchanting sites – is a real highlight of this hotel. Wander through the landscaped gardens that lead from the resort buildings down to the edge of the Nile and hop aboard the boat that travels back and forth between the resort and the town of Aswan for shopping in the market or sightseeing at the High Dam.
There are pleasant dining locations around the resort. The Orangerie is the light-filled all-day restaurant, which features a show kitchen and serves international buffet-style cuisine. At the top of the tower at the heart of the resort, you’ll find the Panorama Bar & Restaurant where you can enjoy dinner with Aswan and the Nile as a backdrop. For a casual snack, head to the poolside restaurant to sample the famous Mövenpick ice-cream before relaxing by the pool on one of the poolside terraces.
Rooms at the Mövenpick are decorated in warm, earthy tones and all overlook the Nile. Classic Partial Nile View Rooms and slightly larger Superior Rooms all have a balcony. For families or groups, the Junior Suites are ideal with two bedrooms and a separate living room.
