This is our 9th visit to this hotel and as ever we are thoroughly enjoying the relaxing atmosphere before we head back to normality.
We love the bungalows as we do not spend much time in the room but having seen the new rooms they are great.
Cleanliness throughout the entire hotel is immaculate, the chambermaid always comes back in the evening to check if anything is needed and of course hands out more mosquito plug ins for the room. We have been here 10 days and not had one bite.
Service is above and beyond as usual. The staff are friendly, polite and very efficient. Tips are not expected but well deserved as the staff do not earn huge wages.
We never eat in the buffet so cannot comment but the Italian is lovely as is the food at the infinity pool and the Ascot bar.
We really do love this place but would just like to make, hopefully, some constructive criticism.
We arrived when the hotel was at full capacity, which we haven't experienced in a long time.The staff dealt with it admirably and my only criticism would be more counters for freshly cooked eggs at breakfast. It is not my idea of relaxing to stand in a queue of nine waiting for an omelette. It probably would not have been so bad if the Egyptians understood the concept of queuing and as it was an Egyptian conference which took over the hotel we didn't look forward to the jostling at the egg counter.
My only other criticism is the entertainment. Unfortunately this did taint our experience yet again. I feel the hotel needs to speculate to accumulate in this area. Instead of spending money in the bar most evenings we grabbed a cab into Luxor to eat, I'm afraid the pianist scared off more than a few visitors as we ended up dining with them in Luxor.
Still a great holiday with three days to go but will review the entertainment before we come back again.
- 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
