From the river to the red Sea

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Travel & Fine Dinning -

The Oberoi Phi­lae sails be­tween Luxor and Aswan – with stops at the Val­ley of the Kings and the Tem­ple of Edfu along the way – on four- and six-night itin­er­ar­ies.

Panoramic river views are as­sured in all 22 state­rooms, but for more space and a pri­vate bal­cony, stay in one of the ter­race suites (from US$1,463, S$2,041, per night). On­board di­ver­sions in­clude a cigar lounge, movie the­atre, spa, fit­ness cen­tre, and a top-deck swim­ming pool and al fresco restau­rant. Cui­sine at the fine-din­ing restau­rant is a blend of Mid­dle East­ern, West­ern and Asian fare.

Trav­ellers look­ing to re­cover from jet lag be­fore a cruise or re­gain their land legs af­ter one should head to Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh (pic­tured here) on the Red Sea coast. The 19-hectare all-suite re­sort of­fers prime pam­per­ing in its 232sqm spa, as well as ac­tive en­deav­ours like scuba div­ing in the nearby Sharm El Naga ma­rine re­serve.
