Zein Nile Chateau breaks the myth of people who believe that the truly elegant way to see Egypt is by a private boat ‘dahabieh’.
Being the first dahabieh built to international luxury standards it is complete with air conditioning, graceful expansive windows and a décor inspired by Egyptian history. Consisting of four rooms and two suites that can accomadate 12 guests, ‘The Zien Nile Chateau’ docks virtually everywhere.
While going up and down the river Nile you can go beyond Luxor and Valley of the Kings. Also can be seen is ‘The Temple of Horembeb’ that is cut into riverside rocks at Gebel Silsila, and then there is the pre- dynastic capital of Upper Egypt. El-Kab has tombs and temples dedicated to the vulture goddess Nekhbet.
Ahmed Faud, the son of King Farouk was the first guest to enter the suite named after his father located on the upper deck of Zien Nile Chateau. It is very spacious and extravagant suite with panoramic windows and replicas of Egyptian royal artifacts. Additionally there is a cigar lounge, a library, a dining room and an Arabian style ‘sky lounge’.
