Mövenpick Resort Aswan Review

What's up with that broccoli stalk of a tower? Take the free 24-hour shuttle boat from the Aswan Corniche, and in five minutes' time you can see for yourself: a tea buffet in the afternoon, a grand view of the changing pinks and oranges of an Aswan sunset, cocktails and an intimate dinner, maybe. The rooms down in the hotel aren't so bad, either. They take their design cues from the Nubian aesthetic: broad, angled stripes on the carpeting; bold triangle stenciling at corners and ceilings—all in rusty desert tones, and balanced with transitional furniture upholstered in a tight geometric print. The mirror in the marble bathroom opens to reveal a view across the bedchamber and past the wide balcony to the landscaped grounds beyond. The nearest neighbors are the inhabitants of the Nubian village that share Elephantine Island with this hotel, the Aswan Museum, and the Temple of Khnum. Common areas flow one into another, from the indoors out. And at night, that strange tower continues to grab attention as a changing palette of lights plays across its surface.
