“Back in time with the Pharoahs!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I'm lucky enough to travel the world with work but Egypt is one place I will continue to visit for its beautiful weather, antiquities, culture, people, food the list goes on and on.

It really does have everything, wether you want to relax by pool, spend the day in a temple, drinking in a bar, on the nile, Luxors timeless beauty and preserved heritage is a perfect mix of old and new. mostly old!

The West Bank where Villa Rosamund is steeped in local culture and it far more quiet and traditional than its East bank partner. A quick boat ride over the water however and your in the bustling East bank with its markets, temples and cosmopolitan atmosphere. A must do is a drink at the bar in the old winter palace. You feel like your in a Agatha Christie novel or Indiana Jones film! The Luxor experience is truly unforgettable and quite unlike anything you will have experienced in Europe.

Villa Rosamund itself is a beautiful multi-story apartment with lovely outdoor and indoor spaces all constructed to Islamic design. Its clean and airy, great for relaxing, if you find time! It will transport you to a different place with its Islamic curved archways and beautiful stone floors. All mod cons provided including great self catering facilities and fast internet.

On top of all this comes Khyri who as well as part owning the villa has worked as a guide all over Egypt and is the quite the celebrity on the West bank! There is no trip, excursion, dinner or problem in the whole of EGYPT that this man cannot arrange! tell him what you'd like to do when you get there and he can suggest possible itineries but always with a no pressure angle. We found everything he offered to be far better value than the tourist hangouts on the East bank and he wraps it up in a unique individual experience so instead of battling with 50 other tourists most of the time in our group of 7 we were by ourselves. you may even find yourself at a local wedding which is an unforgettable experience. I would recommend Luxor for any group, friend, partner, honeymoon or individual. It really has something for everyone. Have a great time and say Hi to Ramases from me!!

“A place I would happily return to time and time again.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I first visited Villa Rosamond a couple of months ago and we loved it so much we are booked in again to see the New Year in. It's a magical place with amazing views. On one side you can clearly see the River Nile, beyond the banana plantation, and on the other side there are views towards the tombs and the Temple of Hatshepsut. The property itself is beautiful and simply decorated, with mosaic tiled floors and white washed walls. However, both kitchens are well appointed and there are air con units in each room, good comfy beds, plenty of (modern) bathrooms (most ensuite) and all bathrooms had reliable hot water. Khyry, the co-owner and manager of Villa Rosamond, is brilliant. He speaks perfect English and can organise anything for you; a camel, donkey, balloon ride, day or overnight trip on a faluka down the Nile, trips to the tombs, a lift to the local restaurant etc. etc.

The house is perfect for a family get together, it would also be perfect for a retreat or a group of friends. I went with my family, it worked so well we're all looking forward to going back again. It's very spacious with large communal rooms in which to socialise and plenty of places to hide away from everyone else and read a book in peace and quiet.
