See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Al Moudira

Step back in time and soak up the atmosphere in the only palace on the Nile’s west bank.

Tucked away in rural farmland, Al Moudira is ideally located close to the city of Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, between the River Nile and the Theban Mountains.

54 large rooms and suites are set around a peaceful courtyard and feature ornate murals hand painted by the hotel's Lebanese artist owner. Each has been individually decorated with antique furniture picked up in Middle Eastern souqs and represents a theme inspired by Egyptian history and mythology. All have spacious hammam style bathrooms and other facilities include satellite television and minibars.

The poolside Pavilion serves light lunches and the Great Room, with its Ottoman brick domes and hanging chandeliers, is where a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean menu is served at dinner. There are also two bars where you can enjoy a drink or mint tea.

Why We Love It

The hotel name derives from the time of the refurbishment, when the builders referred to the owner as 'al moudira' - the boss. The name stuck.
