Occupying its own personal island in the Nile, this is a tranquil haven in vibrant Luxor.
This hotel is one of Luxor’s largest, but its secluded location and beautiful 165-acre gardens ensure that it exudes a peaceful, laid-back atmosphere. Most amenities can be found within the resort. Of the three swimming pools, our favourite is the infinity pool overlooking the Nile which gets spectacular sunset views over the West Bank from the terrace. If you want to explore the city you can cross over the small bridge, which connects the hotel to the mainland.
There’s a diverse choice of indoor and outdoor restaurants here including the large Jolie Ville, the hotel’s main restaurant. Among the à la carte restaurants you’ll find the cosy La Fleur which serves delightful French cuisine and the traditional Zigolini where the menu features delicious home-made Italian pasta and wood-fired pizza. If you have a craving for sweet treats, relax with some ice cream by the pool.
Comfortable rooms and suites are housed in the large octagonal bungalows spread throughout the grounds and each has a private terrace with views of the gardens, pool or Nile. Standard Rooms are spacious with neutral tones, plenty of natural light and garden views.
