Legendary Stories Design signature Our Unique Story Legendary Stories

Each Sofitel is a unique blend of the French art de vivre and local refinement. Under an Egyptian sun, you arrive at a gleaming golden tower on the banks of the Nile. Five-star luxury awaits. Your journey has brought you to Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah.

It's only a bridge away, but busy Cairo feels distant from the tranquility of El Gezirah Island. Entering a vast lobby with a dramatic spiral staircase, you immerse yourself in a world of grandeur that blends Arabic, Pharaonic and French Art Deco design.

As the sun sets over this ancient land, the soft sounds of a flute catch your ear. Curiosity piqued, you venture out to find a procession in traditional dress bearing lanterns. Candles are lit. The ritual bids farewell to day and welcomes night.

After an inspiring day of exploring lands where pharaohs walked, you seek respite. Queen Cleopatra beauty ritual beckons. You ease into a soothing milk-and-almond bath strewn with rose petals, followed by an exfoliating scrub and relaxing massage.
