Really can't add much that other fans of the hotel have placed. It's fantastic. I think our overriding memory will be the staff's friendliness, humour and general happy demeanour. (Unfair to single any out but Okasha & Walid looked after us particularly well). Tourism is their livelihood, so it makes sense really.Good luck to them & we hope the tourism fully restores in the next year. Look forward to returning next February.
One reviewer said we should upgrade. We tried this on arrival, but have to say our original room (older in F - Nile view) was better placed and we stuck with it. They also wanted a fair bit more so it was a no brainer in the end.
Best deal. The Faluka (sail boat) from the hotel's pier is incredibly cheap at £E 20 per hour. Try it.
One final story. The airline tells you that you must pay £13 on arrival for the visa. It's not, it's £10 ($15), and you can easily get stung by the chancers in the arrival hall. Beware!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled upon the private "Kings Island" in the Nile that covers 660,000 sqm, the resort truly is an oasis of peace and tranquility. The idyllic, landscaped hotel grounds are expansive and home to the two main buildings, bungalows and three enticing swimming pool areas. The historic sights of Luxor, located only 4 kilometres from the hotel, can be easily reached by complimentary shuttle buses. The island is connected to the mainland only by a bridge and is virtually free of charge. This makes the resort an ideal location for families with children. The resort has been renovated in 2010 and extended by 320 rooms and suites in 10 elegant bungalows, new restaurants, a pool of 2,800 sqm in size and a SPA with fitness centre (from early-sommer 2011). ... more less
