After 2011 and 2012 we were in Desert Paradise Lodge again! Our aim did not change: We did not want to be at home in the holiday season, but wanted to go somewhere there is warmer and more sunny than in Hungary, and we did not want any Christmas gala dinner and/or New Year’s eve party and so. Nice surprise... More

After the wonderful time we had in 2011 in Desert Paradise Lodge (DPL), we have decided to repeat! This time Christmas and New Year found us there again, together with a family friend. The aim was the same: We did not want to be at home in the holiday season, but wanted to go somewhere there is warmer and more... More

We loved the Desert Paradise Lodge for the lovely respite it provided away from the center of Luxor, the character of the place, and the exceptional hospitality. The garden is perfect, and even in chilly December we enjoyed meals and evening tea and drinks outside. The sunrise from the rooftop terrace is breathtaking, especially when there are hot air balloons... More

We arrived at this beautiful place on the quiet West Bank of Luxor to find ourselves the only guests. For 6 days we were treated like Pharaohs. Ashraf, the owner, had upgraded us to the best room in the hotel at no extra charge. We had the run of the beautiful gardens. The pool was the perfect place to recover... More

After just twenty minutes i fell in love with the place! . Food was authentic and tasty and rooms spotlessly clean as was the pool which was most unexpected but a real pleasure. I will be back again in the autumn.

It is the kind and generous owners and staff of Desert Paradise Lodge that make this such a special place to stay. Fareda and Ashraf made us feel so welcome - we enjoyed our stay here immensely. My son was sick for the first couple days of our visit, and they took care of him as if he were one... More

I booked this Lodge but was so disappointed after twenty minutes there I left and found somewhere else. The room I was offered was rather pokey and functional (two smallish beds, little natural light) The pool is clearly an 'add-on' and not that attractive. I'm more interested in value than price, but at 300LE this does not, in my opinion,... More

I am going to cheat a little here and simply agree 100%, yes 100% with everything Halo44 has written about this wonderful gem of a find on the West Bank.

We have travelled a lot but we had never been to Egypt before and we almost booked a big hotel for our 3 nights in Luxor and then I found Desert Paradise on Trip Advisor....and we were so glad we stayed here. It is a hundred times better than staying in an impersonal, bland chain owned hotel room. Our room... More
