The Sofitel Karnak resides at the heart of a superb palm grove, 2 mi from the famous Karnak Temple, and is one of the finest establishments in the city of Luxor. It exceptional location on the banks of the Nile gives it the kind of charm and authenticity not found in many of the city's other hotels. Indeed, its unique ambience is almost magical, and it is a fantastic place to come and relax on a deckchair, unwinding in the peace and quiet between visits to the cultural sights. Numerous leisure activities can be enjoyed inside the hotel complex, including sports like tennis, football, table tennis, volleyball, squash, and darts, providing a great alternative if you feel like a break from the more traditional tourist pursuits on offer in this part of the world. There are also plenty of eating options: 3 restaurants in 3 different settings, and a plethora of different flavours on the menu. The pleasant rooms are designed in the Moorish style and are located outside of the main building, where most of the amenities are housed (bars, restaurants, shops, etc.). Outside you will also find the immense swimming pool, which has a pool bar in the middle, and a separate pool for children. From this part of the hotel, your views of the Nile are completely undisturbed. To make the most of this magical and unforgettable setting, some of the deckchairs have been set up to look out over the river.
