Egypt is known for its warm hospitality and beautiful hotels that overlook some of the most stunning monuments and beaches in the world.
While there are no dearth of options to choose from, if its luxury you’re after, these are some of the top hotels to check out in the country.
5 Luxury Hotels of Egypt
The Nile Ritz Carlton, Cairo
Nothing beats The Nile Ritz Carlton when it comes to views of the Nile. While you dine at one of the several restaurants here, you can watch the boats sailing down the river. Besides the views, this hotel is also centrally situated – the Nile on one side, Tahrir square on another and walking distance from the Egyptian Museum. There are 10 restaurants in the hotel making it the perfect option for when you’re tired of sightseeing and not in the mood to navigate the chaotic Cairo traffic.
Le Riad - Tell a Story Boutique Hotel, Cairo
This quaint property, which is situated close to the Bab Zuweila Gate, is perfect when you want something a little different from the typical 5 star hotel. The hotel has spacious rooms that are designed with an Arabic sensibility, and come with large, sprawling balconies. The rooftop garden, with a sheesha section, offers stunning views of Cairo, and is worth visiting in the evening.
Mediterranean Azur Hotel, Alexandria
For those who like a hotel with a private beach, The Mediterranean Azur Hotel is a must-visit. With stunning views of the Mediterranean, each room comes with a balcony, which is perfect for people watching, or even watching the magnificently blue sea. There are two outdoor pools and a spa to ensure that you have the most relaxed holiday possible.
Four Seasons Resort, Sharm El Sheikh
With multiple swimming pools for when you get tired of swimming in the Red Sea, this super-luxury resort also includes several restaurants – including local and international cuisines – a private beach and all the tech amenities you could want, such as gaming consoles and iPads. The private beach also offers diving and snorkelling lessons, which is a great way to experience the Red Sea, famous for its coral reefs.
The Royal Savoy, Sharm El Sheikh
A more high-end section of The Savoy, the exclusive Royal Savoy is located centrally, next to the Soho Square, which is the heart of all the activity in Sharm El Sheikh. Some of the best restaurants, nightclubs and shops are located in the Soho Square. The guests of the Royal Savoy can access the several restaurants in the main wing of the hotel, besides which there are a few exclusive options in the Royal Savoy as well. Although all the rooms at the Royal Savoy are large, spacious and come with a balcony, we recommend you pick the villas that come with private pools and gardens.
