Movenpick Hotel, Aswan, Egypt

movenpick-resort-aswanI have always liked Aswan and particularly enjoy the trees and plants on Elephantine Island, so when my husband and I had a chance to stay at the luxurious Movenpick Hotel there, I was delighted. We went by boat across to the island. On arrival at the hotel we were offered a complimentary up grade. The airy, elegant suite had 2 levels with an extra bedrooms and terrace. We also benefitted from a private balcony, a large, comfortable suite across two floors and all the facilities of the hotel.moevenpick room

The hotel is only 14-minute walk from Elephantine Island, this upscale resort hotel overlooking the River Nile is 2 km from Nubia Museum and 3 km from the ancient Unfinished Obelisk Museum.Movenpick_Resort_Aswan_junior_suite

The Movenpick Hotel on Elephantine Island in Aswan  offeres a free breakfast buffet. There is a stylish restaurant overlooking the water, however, we preferred to eat at the poolside eatery and enjoyed drinks and views in the chic top-floor bar. Other amenities include an outdoor etenity pool with a sun terrace. I had never seen an eternity pool personally, so I really enjoyed that and the water was lovely and warm until early evening. This is a lovely hotel and I very much hope to revisit it
