The last two reviews have said most of what I feel about the Jolie Ville.i.e.we love it there .We have been 4 times so far and would be happy to return ad infinitum as long as we can still afford and have the energy to go to other places as well.Once we can't do both I'd opt for just the JV.Guaranteed warmth from sun and staff;medium haul flight;Total cost of holiday cheaper than 2 weeks holiday in hotel in England.In fact we only go self catering in UK it's so expensive.We needed More R and R on this holiday than previously so did less sight seeing but there is plenty to do on King's Island if wanted.We went on the Bird Walk and Garden tour again (chief gardener Reda(female) in charge of 52 gardeners(male) and the beautiful grounds).and visited the Zoo and went to a Basic Arabic session.The belly dancing session was cancelled due to lack of demand? I toured the new kitchens and was taken on a tour of behind the scenes.All illuminating. Tummy upsets are extremely unlikely to be a result of hotel failings as far as I'm concerned.The Brilliant General Manager Mr Urs Umbricht is ever present,looking after his staff as well as the guests.My husband asked for a softer mattress and the firm one was replaced while we had breakfast.ie very quickly.We had loved the older bungalows in the established garden part but this time opted for a larger room on the 2nd floor looking up and down the Nile.Glorious.We ate at La Fleur and Zigolinis and also had room service.Good value all round. Our trip to Abydos and Dendera was entertaining and amazing(our guide's buzz word) and as there were only four of us on the trip (hello ccmanMidlands_UK )and in the temple we had our own private viewing.Great for us but a tragedy for Egyptian tourism.We had no trouble in Luxor and walked around town and ate out a couple of times. There are still plenty of tombs for us to see and a return to Temples we have seen before but are worth another look so I hope to be back.Inshallah .
- 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
