The hotel is cosy and beautiful. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Food is home made and delicious. Make sure you make the most of your Egypt trip by listening to the wise knowledge Madame Antoinette (the owner of the hotel) has to offer. Don't miss the special journeys trough the temples with Antoinette.

The flower of Light Centre is a rare gem in Egypt. Not only was i able to blend my love for temples and egyptian culture with my spirituality but i also made some genuine new friends. The past life regression i had with Antoinette was beyond words, it has changed my perception of myself & my life and for that... More

Antoinette and Tony have built a fantastic place for sightseeing and relaxing. Built on the west side of the river, it is an ideal place to take in sightseeing in the Theban necropolis before retiring in the garden for some refreshing mint tea. Antoinette and Tony are very knowledgeable in ancient Egyptian so have a few conversations with them! Rooms... More

It was a pleasure staying at Flower of Light during our 4 days/5 nights in Luxor. It's a wonderful family-run hotel that has gorgeous dome rooms with huge bathrooms, a lovely pool surrounding by a beautiful garden and a fantastic cook. This was our first time in Luxor, so we did a lot of exhausting sightseeing. Coming back to Flower... More

In the midst of the chaotic and intense experiences an independent traveler can have while exploring Egypt, Flower of Light is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Located on the quiet west bank, at the edge of the desert, close to the valley of the kings and all other sights, this place makes you feel miles- and centuries away from... More

What an incredeble place to stay. It is so great to relax in the beautiful garden after a day in at the temples. You can feel the love and hard work that they put in he place and that makes the place so wonderful. It is not a hotel, but it is a home away from home. Antoinette tells you... More

This is the most peaceful place you can find to stay in Luxor. It has been created with love and a lot of hard work by Antoinette Glynn and her husband Dony, a real oasis of peace and tranquillity on the edge of the desert. Here you will receive personal attention that is not possible in the large hotels, beautiful... More

I have been to the beautiful Egypt 3 times. On my first visit i stayed in the St. Joseph hotel on the east bank of the Nile but it had not got a patch on Antoinette's amazing Flower of light centre. Gorgeous weather accompanied by relaxing and peaceful accommodation is the perfect combination in having the greatest trip to Egypt.... More
