"Great Getaway from Heat and Hassle"
Achti Resort is a quiet oasis located just at the edge of Luxor. Most other properties are inside the city itself, so it is never a true getaway. Achti is has tree shaded walkways and flowers, sprawling lawns, and direct access to the Nile. The view from our bungalow window was to die for. When I walked into the room, I was so pleased with the accommodations that I accepted it immediately----that doesn't always happen. The comfortable and classy layout of the room was perfect for our small family of three. We enjoyed the resort in the early mornings around 5:30 when we could watch the hot air balloons float over the Nile. We would eat the filling (but not fussy) buffet as soon after 7:00 as possible and then head out for exploring. Upon returning, we would catch a swim before the pool closed at 5:00. A full day! The dinner buffet started at 6:00 and I should have added it on as an option. We also enjoyed a dinner from the Indian food menu---but not in the separate restaurant for it (since that is no longer open). Likewise, we loved the vegetarian pizza at the Italian restaurant. The place was quiet at night and we slept very well. After seven years of trips around Egypt, this resort was the best fit for our family.
"Highly recommended "
The hotel facade is a little dated and parts of the interior are a little worn with time. but the room is huge, nice interior, very comfy beds and the bathroom is sizable too. For the price we paid, it is definitely value for money. The staff are very helpful and courteous, and go out of their way to assist us. We stayed at the pool view bungalow, and the friendly pool caretaker made effort to make sure our time at the pool is enjoyable. And also, the location overlooks the West Bank and has the most breathtaking sunset ever. Cons: Besides the restaurants in the hotel, there aren't many options within the vicinity of the hotel without a cab ride. We stayed at the bungalow area and have to walk past rows of shops everyday, and some times the vendors would try to hustle. The same right on the river bank on the hotel property with the felucca captains, which kind of spoils it when we tried to enjoy the sunset. And the hustling continues outside of the property with cab drivers and rows of horse carriages who pester non-stop.
"My lovely relaxing time"
Once again I have returned to Achti resort Luxor (former Sheraton) Where the staff look after you very well, and I now call them my family.Because they treat me as family & I treat them as family.I always ask about their children and how they are getting on.So my thanks to the managers ,reception staff , restaurant staff and Pool staff. The views from the hotel are just wonderful especially as you can also see the west bank.Unfortunately there are not many tourists around, But Luxor is safe and there are wonderful things to see such as the musuem . I travel solo but have no problems at all.
Perfect location for all the sightseeing we had set up to do. Room right on the Nile. Breakfast was a large selection of all the favorites: eggs to order, bakery, fruits. Packed breakfast for us on morning when we had early morning flight out. Friendly and helpful staff. Italian restaurant on property was so good we ate there two nights. Felt safe.
Stayed for 4 nights and loved this hotel. Great room with comfortable beds, large bath, nice restaurant, adequate breakfast. Our room had a view of the Nile. Lots of security, felt very safe. Very friendly staff.
