Our family of 5 have had a wonderful stay in this most gloriously designed and well facilitated property. Riverbank is a subtle icon in its own right, located right on the bank of the Nile (opposite King Farook's Winter Palace and the Ancient Luxor Temple itself). The views from the roof terrace and the first floor of the Nile are wonderful, we spent most mornings from 5am onwards watching the sun rise, the early fishermen in their little rowboats and the hot air balloons rising above this calm arterial river. Turn around to look to the rear of The Riverbank and you see the stunning views of the desert mountains, Valley of the Queens, the village, the banana plantations. So much greenery met by the dry desert mountains in the distance. Really Stunning!
Everything was perfect during our 4 week stay, I realise that this is a 'statement' but Khyry who takes care of the guests was waiting at Luxor airport with an a/c vehicle and a meal waiting for us at the villa. Khyry understands hospitality, but he offers this naturally and genuinely. He is now a friend, whom I would l hope to keep in touch with.
Highly recommended are the optional meals that were offered to us purely as an additional service for our convenience. Mehmood is an excellent chef with lots of experience and culinary ideas and Saeed his assistant was always on the ready to help, accommodating in every way.
Overall a great trip in a great villa which is superbly placed to explore Luxor and enjoy its greatest asset the Nile.
Oh and I can't forget the new swimming pool in its own grounds and facilities also the local stables for very affordable horse riding. The Dahabiyah cruise, which is also available is out of this world, tranquil, mystical sailing from Luxor to Aswan with historic temple and site stops at Esna, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Silsila Island ending in Aswan.
I could go on.... :-)
Thank you Christopher, Pamela, Khyry and his team.
