Despite being just ten years old, Al Moudira exudes the palatial feel of a noble residence that has been around for much longer. Design elements and furnishings salvaged from more historic properties – such as ornate wooden columns and Arabic moucharabieh - bring the region’s rich past to life, and the backdrop of the Valley of the Kings (just four miles away) further adds to this feeling of ancient splendour.
The centre of Luxor is also four miles from the hotel; it can be reached by regular ferry shuttles, but Al Moudira’s tranquil location on the West Bank of the Nile is in fact a key attraction here. After explorations of the myriad ancient attractions in the region, tranquil hours can be spent reclining on the sun terrace by the swimming pool, set in eight hectares of fragrant gardens, where the hustle and bustle of Luxor feels a world away. The hotel’s spa with its steam room, Turkish bath and a variety of massage treatments provide further opportunities for relaxation.
50 spacious rooms are set around the hotel gardens, divided by a series of courtyards. All are furnished in warm tones with traditional decorative tiling, Pharaonic paintings and other unique touches. Some suites feature private terraces. Breakfast and dinner are served on Al Moudira’s delightful courtyard, while lazy lunches can be served to you on the sun terrace should you rather not venture too far from the pool.

Unwind and absorb what you have seen on your adventures so far, from the peaceful surroundings of the swimming pool and sun terrace
