The hotel is open all year, but summer (June to August) can get very hot, with temperatures soaring into the 40s. However, this is also low season, when prices drop. Best to avoid Ramadan, when some businesses will close for the whole month. Islamic festivals Eid al-Adha and Ras as-Sana are extremely busy as Egyptians are all on holiday. The dates for these holidays change every year, so check before planning your trip.
To start planning your holiday to Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa
Luxor's most contemporary and luxurious spa resort, the Hilton Luxor, has glorious, uninterrupted views from the unique water’s edge location of the River Nile and is the ideal base from which to explore the region’s rich and ancient culture.

The rooms and suites at The Hilton Luxor offer guests contemporary comfort and most rooms have a balcony from which to enjoy the magnificent surrounding views. For the ultimate indulgence go for a Spa Suite which has its own private treatment room for pampering therapies in the comfort of your own home-from-home.
Choose from seven stylish bars and restaurants where you can feast on Asian fare at Silk Road, local specialities at Olives or unwind by the river on mezze platters at the relaxed Diwan. Indulge in a luxury holistic treatment at the tranquil and opulent Nayara Spa, bathe in the resort’s two stunning infinity pools flanked by large terraces with double hammocks or simply relax in a shaded cabana beside the Nile.
With so much to do within the hotel you could be forgiven for never leaving, but its location is ideal for exploring the wonders of Luxor and its surrounds. The Valley of The Kings, Valley of the Queens and Tutankhamen's tomb, as well as Karnak and Luxor Temples are all easily accessible from the Hilton.

This is a straightforward Hilton, although very nice as Hiltons go! The decor is simple, the Nile views are superb and it is well-located for visits either to the surrounding sites of interest and also for going into the town itself. It's great because it has a kids club and a spa.
Alice Moseley (Staff)
