Sanctuary Zein Nile Château
Sanctuary Zein Nile Château is a bespoke dahabiya (traditional sailing boat) available for private charter between Aswan and Luxor. This oasis of calm, reminiscent of the glamour of old-world sailing, is one of the most luxurious boats sailing on the river Nile. Offering a fully personalised touring itinerary, taking you off the beaten track, this is an ideal way for families and small groups to experience the Nile and its many wonders.
With only 4 cabins and 2 suites, it is the epitome of style and exclusivity with each cabin decorated in its own original style, with influences drawing from Egypt’s history, culture, and geography. With its extended open spaces, the Zein features a beautiful upper deck, an Arabian-themed sun deck and an opulently styled dining area. Bask in the beauty of the surrounding views as you sip on cocktails. There is a variety of activities to do on board, ranging from Galabeya parties, belly dancing, Arabian music, an Egyptology lecture, cookery lessons and movies in the in-house cinema. The Sun Deck has a small plunge pool, sun loungers, outdoor shower, and an open Arabian-style sky lounge, ideal for star gazing under the clear Egyptian skies.
