Almost made the mistake of requesting a hotel change prior to our visit following some of the reviews - thank goodness we didn't! On previous visits to Egypt my daughter and I have stayed in 5 star accomadation in Luxor so the Dawar El Omda had a lot to live up to, and I'm pleased to say that it well and truly did!!
What a wonderful gem this place is. It has a charming shabby chic quality and the location is stunning. Quiet; intimate; first class, non intrusive service; lovely touches such as daily treats from the kitchen (those kiwi tarts were to die for!), wet face flannels, fruits and sorbets round the pool were a lovely surprise and much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were always checking that you were happy with things.
Thank you so much to all the staff for making our stay so special - I am confident you will do the same when we return next year!
