Evening on the Nile, Old Cataract Hotel
Aswan - Nile River

The most legendary Address of Aswan, de luxe hotel centenary perched on its hill, with sumptuous sight.

The Old Cataract Aswan, built 1899, occupies a superb location overlooking the Nile, across from the legendary Elephantine Island.
Built in 1898, from world fame, bordered of splendid gardens, the hotel profits from an exceptional panorama on the Nile, the Elephantine Island and the Mausoleum of Aga Khan.
The hotel with its calm and excellent situation acts like an oasis resting in the heart of Aswan.
Chief of work of architecture victorienne with its frontages ochre, its living rooms elegant and out of date, its environment style and refined. Fabulous terrace, rooms with furniture of origin, woodworks, etc. The corridors are true galleries of photography.
Fine wood paneling, rich materials and modern amenities: the 123 rooms and 8 legendary suites (including the famous Agatha Christie and Winston Churchill)
The mythical address of the city is the restaurant of Cataract, the 1902. Immense room with cupola, decoration of Thousand and One Nights.
The terrace (there is in fact two) is too fabulous to make the dead end, that it is  for the sight, the decoration, with the coloured woodworks and hangings, or environment very ` club'.

Part of the Holy Land, Egypt offers a fascinating mixture of ancient pyramids, temples and other religious monuments. There are numerous possibilities to explore Egypt from desert treks to trips down the Nile or scuba diving in the Red Sea and along the Sinai coast. Cairo, which means “The Triumphant”, is home to the pyramids, sphinx and over 17 million residents within its metropolitan area. Luxor is often described as the world’s largest open air museum, built on the ancient city of Thebes. The Karnak temple complex, located near Luxor, is a collection of ancient temples, chapels and various other buildings.
