    Palatial Paradise

    by

    What a joy it was to stay at Al Moudira Hotel. It is an oasis of calm and beauty at the edge of the desert on the West Bank of the Nile, and is highly reminiscent of the riads of Marrakech. The hotel was built in 2001 by a talented, elegant and multi-lingual Egyptian lady whose dream had always been to construct a luxury boutique hotel. Al Moudira consists of several domed structures, built in a traditional desert palace style. Each structure has a central courtyard surrounded by artistically decorated rooms or suites. The grounds have been beautifully landscaped and contain a large swimming pool. The hotel has a spa and an excellent restaurant that serves three meals a day. While the only drawback is its distance from downtown Luxor (takes about 30-40 minutes, including a ferry ride), the hotel is so pleasant that you would not want to leave it. I would return to Luxor only to stay at Hotel Al Moudira, which could easily be voted as the best hotel in the whole of Egypt.

More about Al Moudira Hotel

Luxor's most refined cuisine...

by MM212 about Al Moudira

Complementing its beautiful setting and excellent service, the restaurant at Al Moudira Hotel serves the most refined cuisine in Luxor. The menu is a mix of well-executed local and continental dishes served with some surprisingly decent local wines. Although the clientele is mostly hotel guests, the restaurant is open to others (by reservation). The restaurant serves three meals a day with lunch typically eaten by the swimming pool. The drawback for people not staying at the hotel is its distance from Luxor, as one would need to arrange for two way transportation, particularly for dinner. It will be well-worth it.

The Children of Luxor

by MM212

On our second morning in Luxor, while waiting for our car and driver to accompany us to the necropolis of Thebes, we stepped out of Hotel al-Moudira in the warm rays of the sun. To our surprise, we were happily greeted by a group of five beautiful Egyptian children playing together on the edge of the farm; one girl and four boys, seen in the attached photograph. Shoeless and possessing very little, they seemed the happiest children on Earth. They were keen to practise the few English words in their nascent vocabulary: "hello mister," they shouted, and were most delighted to be photographed. Ahmed, the little smiling one in the middle, was accompanied by his brother to his right and three cousins, whose names I forget. After showing them their picture on the display screen of the digital camera, we gave them a small bag of nuts we had purchased a day earlier. The gift clearly made their day, but our brief interaction with them was the highlight of our trip to Luxor.
