Al Moudira, Luxor, Egypt
Most of the area's hotels are located on the East Bank of the Nile, among the souvenir shops and busy Nile cruise moorings of Luxor. There are a few exceptions and Al Moudira is one of them, located in peaceful isolation on the West Bank, about a 25 minute drive from Luxor. Arcaded courtyards, colourful gardens and Oriental collectibles combine to give the air of an Ottoman palace. The ochre and blue walls are inspired by Egyptian temples, and the floor tiles come from an ancient workshop. The 54 individually decorated rooms are large, with wonderful high ceilings, traditional designs and antique furniture. With shady patios and cooling fountains, Al Moudira provides the perfect retreat after a busy day's sightseeing. The architecture and feel is unlike anything else you will find in Luxor, a rare taste of Middle Eastern aesthetics.

The modern town of Luxor has grown up around the two temples of Luxor and Karnak. The name Luxor is a corruption of the Arabic word "El Qsour", meaning castles or palaces, a reference to these two magnificent temples.
The West Bank at Luxor is known as the Theban Necropolis. This full day excursion will typically include the Tombs of the Theban rulers and the Temple of Hatchepsut.
