Myself and my parter booked the maritim jolie only 3 days before we flew as a last min holiday to get some well needed sun and it was the best decision we've ever made.
The hotel is set in the most beautiful grounds, the gardeners work hard at maintaining the surroundings and it really shows. The hotel has 3 pools all as stunning as the next. We spent most out time at the relaxation pool, however the truth is everywhere on this resort was relaxing. It was the most peaceful stress free holiday we've ever had!
The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough for you. On the second day I had to attend the clinic as I had left some medication in the UK, I spoke with the doctor over the phone and I was told that they would source the medication for me and have it sent to the hotel to collect at the reception at 5pm and sure enough there it was! Amazing service.
One night we were having dinner at la fleur and the managing director of the hotel came round to each table and introduced himself to the guests, and asked us if we were enjoying our holiday. This personal touch was greatly appreciated.
The food was great. We booked b&b and then purchased vouchers for la fleur and the themed buffet. Dinner at la fleur was absolutely delicious, the kind of food that you would expect from a 5* resteraunt in the UK. Breakfast was great as was the dinner buffet, in particular the Egyptian and Italian night.
We used the gym daily as the facilities in the fitness centre were amazing as was the spa where we had a wonderful massage.
The hotelrooms/general public areas and the gardens were spotlessly clean. We heard horror stories of Egypt holidays, this is not one to avoid, in fact I can strongly say to go and enjoy it for a week. Any longer than this you need to think about excursions.
All in all it was the perfect holiday retreat. Peace and quiet, good food, great staff and the most beautiful resort I've ever been to. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing short break.
- 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
