Of all the 5 star hotels in Luxor, only the Sheraton is located in an secluded enclave on the banks of the Nile. While the hotel is showing it's age and the property could use some updating, the service is exemplary. We stayed in a Junior Suite for 4 days which contained a very comfortable king bed, living room and dinning area and 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, the master containing an modern toilet/videt combination. The view from the extensive wrap-around terrace was fantastic (sunrise hot air ballons rising over the Valley of the Kings to sunsets over the Nile. One evening, we had room service on the dinning table on the terrace. The presentation was fantastic and a truly memorable night under the stars.
All of the amenities you expect from a 5 star resort including a small shopping arcade selling sundries to souvenirs and henna tattoos in the beauty salon. Tennis court, soccer court, croquet and 2 pools a spread throughout the resort.
The buffet breakfast and dinner at the hotel restuarant contains both local and western cuisines so everyone has something to choose and/or experiment. A la carte menu items are also available. Try the chicken wings with the sauce on the side...we had 4 orders! Dinner at the Italian restaurant La Mamma is deliciously authentic. I had Carbona with real Parma ham, an item which is extremely rare in Egypt. We all enjoyed our meals and service was excellent.
The hotel offers a free shuttle service between the hotel and Luxor museum. Comfortable tours to the Valley of the Kings, Luxor and Karnak Temples were arranged with by the Concierge. Feluccas are available for sailings directly from the hotel riverbank. If you are considering a day trip to Aswan, get an early start as it will be a very long day (about 8-10 hours travel time to & from).
When I return to Luxor on day, I will repeat my stay at the Sheraton.
