Steigenberger Achti Resort Luxor


This newly renovated resort has a warm, friendly atmosphere and gardens overlooking the Nile.

This hotel is an excellent base for exploring Luxor. It’s walking distance from the centre in quiet tropical gardens, so while you’ll have a tranquil setting that feels removed from the crowds but still be close to the buzz of the city. Best of all, its location gives you front-row views to the River Nile which threads together most of Egypt’s most prized possessions. 

The hotel’s main restaurant, Karnak, has tables on the terrace for all-day international-style dining to Nile views. There are river-view seats for drinks at Sukkareya Lobby Bar as well as a bar at each of the two pools – one of which is right at the Nile’s edge so you can spot elegant felucca sails as you swim.

Rooms are in the main building or in bungalows around the grounds and are all finished with a modern Egyptian style. All of the modern rooms and suites in the main building have a balcony or terrace – the best being the ones with views of the river. Superior Rooms in the main building have garden views, although we recommend upgrading to the Superior Nile View Room which looks out on the historic waterway, or a Deluxe Nile View Room which also comes with an indulgent Jacuzzi tub. The Bungalow Rooms have the direct access to the pool surrounded by greenery.
