Official star rating:
This large family-oriented resort hotel is spread out over an island in the Nile.
It’s set amid 165 acres of landscaped gardens, filled with birds and shady trees. King’s Island is actually a resting place for thousands of migratory birds on their way to breeding grounds in Africa. Some 280 different species pass through Egypt every spring and autumn.
Removed from the often hectic and noisy centre of Luxor, the bungalow rooms dotting the grounds are wonderfully peaceful.
The property has three large pools, including a Nile-side infinity pool, a choice of restaurants, and friendly, helpful staff. A wonderful breakfast buffet is served on a terrace overlooking the Nile.
It’s away from the monuments, although that’s also a blessing. A regular free shuttle bus and boat run into Luxor centre.
It’s particularly good for families, with connecting rooms and stand-alone villas, and excellent kids facilities.
