Why would you want to stay anywhere else in Luxor? This beautiful, stylish and unique hotel is a collection of spacious, traditional domed roofed suites set among colourful and lushly planted courtyards and terraces with tinkling fountains and linked by a quirky 'crazy paving' path of multi coloured ceramic tiles. The careful attention to detail is extraordinarily stylish, from the 'egyptian art nouveau' style period metal dish for nuts to accompany a pre - dinner drink to the lovingly restored period architectural features such as the delicate fretwork of a wooden 'mashrabiyya' screen that provides an impressive focal point in the exquisite open air dining courtyard. With the practicalities at reception dealt with quiet and charming efficiency, I was escorted to my accommodation, and what accommodation....! A very spacious dome roofed suite consisted of a delightful combination of bedroom with a king size canopied bed and comfortable sitting area large enough for several people to relax in ( and watch TV if desired). A further dressing room with a large beautifully decorated period wardrobe led to a very spacious dome roofed bathroom, fully and exquisitely tiled with tiny coloured glass roof - lights set into the dome and placed strategically above the semi - sunken bath. Fresh egyptian cotton bedlinen, soft fluffy towels and dressing gowns, fresh flowers, fragrant toiletries all combined to create a relaxing and luxurious experience. A complimentary drink beside the charming pool at sunset preceeded a delightful dinner enjoyed in a cosy intimate dining room just off the main open air dining courtyard ( it was a cool January evening) with friendly and attentive staff. After a very peaceful and refreshing night's sleep, breakfast of fresh fruit and juices, croissants, pastries, yoghurt and omelette was offered in another intimate open air courtyard filled with fragrant shrubs and birdsong and so I reluctantly left the tranquil atmosphere of this very special oasis - a little bit of paradise on earth - to continue my travels. There is no doubt I will return again and again in the future and for longer spells because I have found without doubt the most amazing and unique hotel that creates a perfect setting for relaxation and tranquility that I have ever come across. All this for 160 euros per night (Jan 2013) although I am sure it is a variable rate, and dinner, wine and drinks for 2 was about 180 euros. Excellent value and perfect for a honeymoon couple or a special anniversary celebration as well as those who prefer privacy and tranquility.
