Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Oberoi Philae Luxury Nile Cruiser is our answer to immersive Egyptian river cruise with a stamp of the brand's signature luxury.

Rooms onboard the Oberoi Philae Luxury Nile Cruiser

The cabins are luxuriously spacious, featuring dark woods that contrast against cool creams and authentic Egyptian fabrics. The floor to ceiling windows ensure optimum views as you wake up on the sacred river and glide by the passing scenery from the comfort of your room. The luxury suites with terrace offer the height of luxury, giving you the choice between a lounger or heated whirlpool to take in the passing views.

Food & Drink

The Main Restaurant is just as elegant as the rest of the vessel, filled with natural light by day and a softly lit ambience by night. Cuisines from around the world are on the menu, from Western favourites the classic Asian and Middle Eastern delicacies. Dine al fresco at the Poolside Restaurant with uninterrupted views of the surrounds.


Escape for a couple of hours in the movie theatre or let off some steam in the fitness room. For some real pampering, treat yourself to a massage in the spa. The sun deck is where guests can soak up the sun on a lounger as they cruise along the river, and the pool offers the ideal spot to cool off from the Egyptian sunshine.

Activities onboard the Oberoi Philae Luxury Nile Cruiser

A range of itineraries are available for your stay on the Oberoi Philae, all tailored to see the best sights along the Nile, from temples and tombs to the iconic timeless monuments.
