Second time at this hotel and have to agree with other repeat visitors that this is a great hotel.
The staff are great and really make you feel relaxed. They are courteous, attentive and helpful. Service as it should be.
Clean and hygienic - no problems with food, ice etc. Result - no tummy bugs!
Truly great location - What better than an island on the Nile with beautiful views of the river. Great sunsets ocross the river. If you love peace and quiet you will love this.
Stayed in a superior deluxe room which was of high standard and facilities.
Our trip had no transfers, the hotel volunteered to pick us up and drop as back to the airport - one step beyond expectations in my book.
Loved the La Fleur and Zigolini's restaurants (will review separately). Great food and staff
Choice of three pools- we like the relaxing pool.
What could be better?
We like somewhere to go in the evening for a drink and to relax, maybe chat to other guests etc. Although the hotel has such a place, the Ascot bar, with nice piano music and food options, it is a smoking bar. We went in on the first night and it was okay, but the second time it was pretty smoggy, and not pleasant at all. Our clothes when we got back to our room had that stale nicotine smell that tells the tale. Note to management: the bar had more people in it the first night when there was little smoke, but very few when it was smokey.
There is a shuttle bus into Luxor (last one comes back at 9.15pm) but book earlier in the day to be sure of a space
If you get a taxi back always agree the price before getting in ( about 20 Egyptian Pounds)
Food at the hotel is very reasonable - burger and chips by the pool (£6 / $9), Pizza (£5 / $7.50). Similar applies to room service and the Ascot Bar if you don't mind smoke.
A meal for two with starters in either Zigolini's (Italian) or La Fleur (French) is about £35 / $50)
International wine is very pricey, but try the local Omar Khayyam red wine which is quite drinkable and priced around £15 /$22. Best beer is saqqara a at about £3 / $5
In Luxor try the spicy meatballs at the Lantern restaurant - to die for
- 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
