We only booked this hotel a few weeks ago, as we were in desperate need of some sunshine. Having checked the reviews before we left, I have to say we were extremely concerned what we were letting ourselves in for. Never having travelled to Egypt before,we did find the airport rather overwhelming - to say the least! However, I have to say, the resort is amazing, friendly, clean and the location is breathtaking. Yes there is building work taking place but being in block E it didn't affect us at all. I understand the buildng work will take a while longer but it certainly wouldn't put us off and will definately be going back next winter. A couple of tips - ignore the Thomas Cook men when you arrive offering you a visa, they are not genuine, visas can be purchased from your rep on the coach or at the banking kiosks in the arrival hall. Change your money up in the hotel as it has its own bank - Bank of Egypt as the rate is far better. You must go to the Fellas Tent as it is a great night and book with the hotel direct as its cheaper. Also the guy sitting in reception on the Thomas Cook desk is not the real deal - he belongs to TC - Egypt which is competely separate from Thomas Cook as we know it in the UK. Take plenty of Mozzie spray and candles for your patio, oh and of cause anti sickness and diarhorrea sachets/tablets.
You will have a great time!
Can't wait to go back
- 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
