The Oberoi Philae

Oberoi Philae is a traditional looking boat with a contemporary and elegant interior. Each of the 22 cabins and suites have large French doors offering wonderful views of the Nile and some of the luxury suites have a private terrace with heated whirlpool.

An 11 metre swimming pool, gym and spa complete this lovely boat.

why we like oberoi philae

The floor to ceiling French windows in the cabins can be opened, meaning the first cup of tea of the day can be taken as the Nile glides past and the breeze drifts through your cabin. Oberoi hotels are renowned for their wonderful service and the Oberoi Philae does not disappoint. 


Cruise between Luxor and Aswan in either direction, over four or six nights.


The boat has a wonderful sundeck with an 11-metre temperature controlled swimming pool, as well as a gymnasium, beauty salon and onboard spa. Dining on board offers a mixture of contemporary and international cuisines.


As well as plenty of time to relax and enjoy spa treatments there is of course a wealth of fabulous historical sites to experience. Sightseeing is done in small groups by small luxury coach and using the best Egyptologists.
