We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon and it was amazing.
The complex is massive and took us around 4 days to find our whereabouts but it was fun.
The food served is good compared to other places in Egypt and there is also a good selection for everybody.
The pools were very clean and well looked after - they were also reasonably quiet so no need to go early to get a sun lounger.
The drinks were quite expensive so beware if you dont pay your bill until the end of your stay!
All the staff are very friendly and not too pushy for tips etc which makes a change.
Also it is a typical English resort with few Europeans which again makes a change for Egypt.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable with air conditioning which was well used.
I wouldnt recommend September for taking children as it was quiet and more for couples wanting to chill out and be peaceful.
Taxis and shuttle bus are excellent and are very reliable and the taxis are very cheap.
If you want to eat out I would strongly recommend The Lantern and The Puddleduck - English owned, very good food and reasonably priced. The taxi driver will also come back and pick you up at an arranged time which was excellent too.
The zoo in the complex is definately an experience but worth seeing as is the gym!!
The people coming round touting for business within the complex were fine and left you when you said 'no' apart from 1 lady who does the manicures and pedicures - she has a tendancy to pester you and wont leave you alone day after day.
Would recommend the Fellah Tent evening but book it with the manager in the restaurant as you will pay £35 more if you book elsewhere.
Definately a taste of paradise and heavenly. We could'nt have asked or wished for a better destination for the start of our married life.
- 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
