The Oberoi Zahara Nile Cruiser HERO

The Oberoi Zahra, Luxury Nile Cruiser

Discover The Oberoi Zahra, Luxury Nile Cruiser

The Oberoi Zahra is a Luxury Nile Cruiser that sails on a 3 or 7-night itinerary from Luxor to Aswan (and vice versa), allowing the opportunity to leisurely discover 5000 years of Egyptian culture. Expect luxury cabins and suites, fine dining, a full-service spa, and sincere, courteous hospitality. When you dock, English-speaking Egyptologists will share their fascinating knowledge with you as you visit the Nile’s well-known monuments.

The cruiser has 27 elegant cabins and suites with River Nile views and luxurious bathrooms. From the cabins you can gaze out at the river from your glass-panelled rain shower or bathtub and from the 2 suites, you can lounge on your own terrace or take a dip in the private heated outdoor whirlpool. Your main meals will be served at the sophisticated restaurant, and you can enjoy high tea at the Club Lounge. Following dinner, grab a drink at the Cigar Lounge which offers sunset views through the panoramic windows. On your return from your various excursions, head to the rooftop deck. Lounge at the pool with a bevy of blue and white striped loungers.
