Press release published on 2019-10-09

New Steigenberger Resort Achti Luxor offers a luxury experience to holidaymakers and business travellers

Evolution Steigenberger comes to the “city of 100 gates”. The new Steigenberger Resort Achti Luxor is set at the heart of a lush tropical garden right on the eastern bank of the River Nile. This central yet quiet location makes it an ideal starting point for undertaking excursions into a city which is steeped in history and for exploring the surrounding area. Luxor’s numerous palaces left a strong impression on the poet Homer as long ago as the 8th century BC. Around one third of all the world’s ancient artefacts can be found in Luxor.

We are delighted to be able to open a further location that offers our guests the unique Steigenberger experience in a city with such a rich history,” said Thomas Willms, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality. “Thanks to the Steigenberger Nile Palace, we have already been able to establish a successful and long-standing relationship with Luxor and the surrounding region. We are now seeking to deepen these ties further.”

General Manager Ashraf Naguib has been in charge of the pre-opening of the new Steigenberger Resort Achti Luxor since January 2019. Following extensive renovation works, the hotel offering 281 luxurious rooms and suites in the main building as well as in several bungalows will extend the Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts portfolio from November 1. Two meeting rooms and a large garden providing unique views of the Nile are available for the staging of events and conferences. Guests will also be able to enjoy the use of five international restaurants/bars, two pools, a market square and a marina with berths for the felucca sailing boats that are so typical of the region. These high-end facilities will appeal to leisure travellers and business visitors alike.
