A friend and I visited Luxor and stayed at Kings Island this past month, and had a delightful time. The rooms were lovely, and I rather enjoyed the bungalow-style setup - it felt like being at a true resort versus simply being at a hotel, per se. Excellent amenities - while we didn't take advantage of them, the property provides many activities and excursions that I'm sure would be very appealing to many.
I would just say that the non-included meals (i.e., lunch and dinner) were quite expensive, especially compared to prices in town. The same can be said for drinks at the bar. However, this is not a huge issue. The only other downside I can mention is the sometimes limited space in the shuttle buses that bring you to downtown Luxor (the property is located a bit outside of town). While we were there the staff apparently promised too many people spaces on a shuttle bus and a tour group had to be split up into two trips - bigger shuttle buses could easily fix this issue.
Wi-fi access is provided for free in the lobby - if this were extended into the private rooms as well it would be amazing.
Overall though I highly recommend the place and would be happy to stay there 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
