Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor is an elegant old-world luxury hotel perched on the River Nile amidst luxuriant tropical gardens. Built in 1886 by British explorers, it became a palatial winter retreat for the Egyptian Royal Family and was where Agatha Christie wrote her famed 1937 novel Death on the Nile. The hotel’s rooms are rich in colonial design with fine woods, bright satin fabrics, and sumptuous marble bathrooms. Massive picture windows reveal sweeping views of the Nile River, the ancient Valley of the Kings and the bougainvillea-dotted botanical gardens surrounding the property. Afternoon tea in the crystal-lit Victorian Lounge is an institution and the historic 1886 restaurant serves up classic French cuisine. After touring Luxor’s sites, relax by the pool.
