Mena House OberoiCairo, Egypt
Cutting through the vast golden deserts of Egypt, the vein of life that is the Nile leads to the majestic and historic city of Cairo, and to your luxurious stay at Mena House Oberoi. Surrounded by 40 acres of lush gardens, with the breathtaking Great Pyramids of Giza standing proudly as they have for thousands of years, you will enjoy all the comforts of the modern world with the ancient wonders just outside your door. Step into your room and relax in splendor in the spacious open design, with high ceilings and sliding glass doors letting in abundant natural light. With a rich contemporary style, plush furnishings, and beautiful wood floors, each room is like an elegant home away from home, inviting you to immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings. At Mena House Oberoi, explore all that Cairo has to offer, and rest in luxuries pharaohs could only dream of.
Begin your trip with a visit to the nearby Sphinx and Great Pyramids. Standing for over 5,000 years, these monoliths are of such staggering size that one must see them in person to truly understand. Lose yourself in the halls of the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, marveling over archeological finds, treasures from King Tutankhamun's tomb, and over 120,000 fascinating pieces. Tour Saqqara, near the ancient capital of Memphis, and see the Djoser Step Pyramid, which predates the Great Pyramids, and the Tombs of Apis Bulls. Walk through the streets of Islamic Cairo, taking in the architecture and mosques, and shop at the Khan Ali-Kalili open-air market. After a day in the city soothe yourself with a massage at The Oberoi Spa, or take a dip in the swimming pool. As the sun begins to set, cruise along the Nile in a traditional Felucca sailing boat before enjoying a fabulous dinner. Delight in fine dining at Al Rubayyat, Indian cuisine at The Moghul Room, or Oriental fare at Abu Nawas, before turning in for the night.
