My partner and I spent three days in this wonderful palace. It is enchanting. The design is tastefully unique and charming and it offers a exquisite change from traditional 5 star chains.
Sadly, due to the political situation in Egypt, we were almost the only clients at the time and the hotel was running well below capacity. The pool consequently was not as clean as may be it is in full season but that was not a major issue.
We stayed in a deluxe room, which felt like a room from the one thousand and one nights tale. It had so much character, I felt like a princess. The pictures do not give justice to the feel of the place. The restaurant was great, some dishes were just outstanding! However, i would stay clear of the pizza on the pool lunch menu, as it was nothing special.
The place is isolated and is a heaven for relaxation. The only noise to be heard is that of bird and the Egyptian countryside, which I found delightful. The valley of the kings /Queens/ nobles is not far, as well as Habu temple, and the Al Moudira makes for a good base to go and explore these parts.
All in all, we absolutely loved it and would recommend it highly!
