Hero image Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel 1920x950

Decorated with modern Egyptian flair, every room is a masterpiece. Arched ceilings and mosaic décor is a staple in the hotel; each room is richly adorned with patterns that pay homage to East-African culture. History meets modernity, as this opulent resort looks back to past of golden Pharoahs, Moorish architecture, 19th-century presence and is propelled forward to increasing luxury.

Like the hotel, the grand 1902 restaurant is rooted in history. Red and white sweeping arches and a huge Arabian dome draw inspiration from the Qualaun Crypt in Cairo. Dine on local flavours fused with French techniques, celebrating 12 decades of gastronomy with exquisite French cuisine. 

Sofitel Legend Old Cataract is lightly cloaked by lush palm trees, providing shade from the burning sun. Take a dip in the infinity pool to cool off as you gaze at Elephantine Island just opposite.
