Sitting across from Elephantine Island at the edge of the Nubian Desert, this is the ultimate Egyptian retreat. Visited by King Fouad, Agatha Christie and other distinguished guests, this 19th century palace welcomes you into a world of ruby red chandeliers, plush Persian carpets, Moorish arches and hand-crafted furnishings. Lavish interiors aside, you can expect to enjoy magnificent hospitality and a whole host of luxurious facilities – from an indulgent spa to the renowned ‘1902’ fine dining restaurant.

Rooms and suites are split between the elegant and contemporary Nile Wing and the Old Palace Wing which has been lovingly renovated to preserve its historic heritage. From the hotel’s magnificent position on the banks of the Nile, the Unfinished Obelisk is under a mile away, with Elephantine Island, the Philae Temple and the Tombs of the Nobles also close at hand.
