Al Moudira Hotel

Top choice hotel in Egypt
Image by

Al Moudira is a luxury hotel of a stylish individuality. A fantasy of pointed arches and soaring domes set amid lush gardens and birdsong, the hotel is charming and peaceful. The huge rooms are grouped around a series of verdant courtyards. There is a tranquil restaurant and vibrant bar, a large pool and hammam (bathhouse), all run by friendly staff.

Each room is different in shape, size (all are very large) and decoration, with their own hand-painted trompe l’oeil theme and with Egyptian antiques. Cushioned benches and comfortable antique chairs invite pasha-like lounging and the enormous vaulted bathrooms feel like private hammams. Public spaces are even more spectacular with traditional mashrabiyya (wooden latticework) combined with work by contemporary ‘orientalist’ artists. The staff are very helpful. Set on the edge of the cultivated land and the desert, this hotel is spectacular and unique. Don't let its isolation put you off: transport is quick and easy.
