Hotels in Luxor
The Sofitel-managed property overlooking the Nile, near the temple of Luxor, was built in 1886 for European aristocracy.
Al Moudira—a baroque hotel fit for royalty, just a few miles south of the Valley of the Queens—incorporates materials salvaged from the corners of Egypt: stained glass lines the ceilings; frescoes and latticework adorn the arched walls; and 100-year-old wooden columns surround the swimming pool.
The latest luxury cruise ship to hit the Nile, this vessel has spacious accommodations, spa suites, and a pool. The boat has private docks and Wi-Fi, and an onboard Egyptologist provides daily lectures.
