This is not a comment on Egypt itself. I'd been to Egypt before, loved it this time round too, and plan on going back. This review is solely a comment on this particular hotel where I stayed. I noticed that others have had good experiences at this hotel. I believe them. I imagine it's simply a question of hit-and-miss. Let... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the magical Anakato and we couldn't have been happier. The location, the staff we're more than amazing. Stunning views, and absolute relaxation, we've got nothing but love for you Anakato, and we hope to see you again very soon.

This has been my first visit to Nubia and it was lovely. Anakato reflects the life of such Nubian islands. People over there are so kind and very helpful with their dark skin and beautifully white teethed smiles. I fell in love with the place, the colored buildings, rooms, decorations and most importantly the stunning view I used to see... More

Visiting Nubia was like a journey to the land of good people. People are the treasure of this place. Anakato holds all the Nubian beauty together in one colourful spot. Staff here makes everything easy, and reachable. They would love to make conversations with you about anything that is related to their culture and history of the Nubians. Rooms are... More

A simple, secluded motel by the Nile, Anakato is just a good representation of how Noubians live, quite, simple and satisfied. The Nile view from its many terraces is simply breathtaking. I finally made it last month and I m going back in Feb again. A place to be.

This is one of the most relaxing vacations we ever had! The view of the Nile is so majestic no wonder ancient Egyptians worshipped it! The staff members are so friendly you feel at home with your family! The food was very good and don't miss Dome juice :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
"Ana Kato" means "Our House"SESCO as the owning company has the pleasure to announce Anakato Nubian Houses; our innovative concept of hospitality in Egypt. It started in 2009, with one exclusive Nubian house on the River Nile in Aswan featuring the authentic Nubian atmosphere, welcoming, food and well-known hospitality. With our new concept, we present the true paradise for those who love nature, meditation and relaxation. Also it is the perfect choice for a truly memorable honeymoon, offering pure romance and ultimate privacy. For adventure seekers, it is a fantastic destination at the most exclusive area of the Nile in Aswan. Today, Anakato three Nubian houses (Wer, Owy & Toski) are your gateway into Gharb Soheil; the land of the Nubians. The walls of these unique houses tell a wonderful story of people unchanged by civilization; whose culture, language, and history remain untouched and mysterious to outsiders. Rising up from the west bank of the tranquil and serene river Nile, Anakato stands proudly touching the sacred water of the oldest and one of the longest rivers worldwide.Guarded by a magical tree with branches bending over to kiss the Nile, Anakato legend stories about the guardian living under the branches to ward off bad and evil powers never grew old.AnaKato is a peaceful, quite, and scenic retreat. The magnificent location on the Nile, dry climate, golden desert sands, sounds of birds, and the extraordinary sights of ancient Egypt promote deep healing calmness and unimagined relief; a tranquil and inspirational state that you have to experience to believe....Indulge yourself in a swim in the cool Nile, relax on its little sand beach, or just enjoy the bright sun of El Noba, while having a juice at the Nile Terrace, overlooking a spectacular view. Cruise the Nile with one of our motor boats, while admiring the sunset or the sunrise.Share the secrets of the Nubian ancient land and people that you can't find in books, and experience the ambiance of the Nubian life. Visit us at night to get the feeling of the extraordinary rhythm and traditional steps of our Nubian dance. Whichever way you choose to explore your journey, you will leave with a piece of AnaKato forever; a gift from its people to the world.AnaKato a whole new world to discover!! ... more   less
