Our continued expansion illustrates our ongoing commitment to the region, and all that it has to offer for luxury travellers and homeowners,” says Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management.
Perched on the Nile River in the south of Egypt, in one of the country’s most storied destinations Four Seasons Hotel Luxor is set to open in 2025 and will include 200 guest rooms and suites, each with views of the Nile River, the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens.
