Live the Legend at Sofitel Old Cataract Aswan, a luxury 5-star hotel in a 19th-century Victorian palace on the banks of the river Nile. Rising grandly from a pink granite shelf at the edge of the Nubian Desert, this stylish property blends Pharaonic treasures with French art de recevoir. Discover sophisticated interiors by Sybille de Margerie; a world of Moorish arches, ruby red chandeliers, plush Persian carpets, soft armchairs, and hand-carved furnishings. Or step into 21st-century Egypt with the Nile Wings, which offer a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional codes. Whether staying in the gold scarlet grandeur of the Old Palace, or the bright contemporary Nile Wing, enjoy a Sofitel MyBed, private balcony, Hermes lotions, and Bose sound.

Relax and immerse yourself in an infinity pool overlooking the Nile, arrange a felucca cruise at sunset, a hot stone massage at So SPA, a meeting in a stylish boardroom, or a cocktail reception under the stars. Spacious guest rooms have balcony views suites boast exclusive butler service. Make sure to save time to take tea on the rose granite Promenade and savor gourmet French cuisine at 1902 restaurant.
