The Terrace is a legendary venue, where Dame Agatha Christie once settled for hours, intently penning chapters of her celebrated Death on the Nile. Framing the Nile, picture perfect side of the restaurant and out towards the pool over-looking Khnum Temple and Elephantine Island. Wicker chairs, canvas awnings, and a spectacular view of the palm-lined river has earned The Terrace a reputation as the preferred location to experience an Egyptian sunset. Offering an exquisite premier menu, The Terrace is considered the “hottest table” in Upper Egypt. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, The Terrace also features in an authentic high tea experience enriched with mouth-watering French and Oriental pastries.

Set on the Palace's rose granite promontory, the Promenade offers prime views of Elephantine Island and the Khnum Temple. Sip champagne cocktails or sweet hibiscus tea at this majestic Aswan bar, as the sun disappears over the flowing Nile River.

A lush, tropical setting, Palms affords a relaxing place for guests to enjoy frozen alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, cocktails, ice-cream, and light fare, including healthy salads and sandwiches. Guests can contemplate the awakening Nile over continental breakfast, eat a snack or casual meal in the shade of a parasol, or sip on a specialty cocktail while counting the stars reflected in the shimmering pool and river waters.

The Bar
Enjoy beverages at The Bar, where the interior décor invokes the elegance of Egyptian codes in a British-style piano bar: brass lantern chandeliers, rich mahogany, crushed velvet, and cool leather. The fully-stocked bar offers a selection of international beer, signature cocktails, and other flavorful concoctions. Experience a magnificent night at Winston Churchill’s favorite bar east of London.

Overlooking the pool and gardens, Yasmine is a juice bar and lounge offering tantalizing beverages, including hand-squeezed lemonades, crafted iced teas, fresh juices, and vintage-inspired cocktails. Boasting deep purples, rich wood, and glowing crystals, this healthy Aswan bar displays striking décor, ideal to enjoy a refreshing treat.
