The Mena House, in the shadow of the Great Pyramids, was built as a royal hunting lodge in the 1880’s. Today, adorned with hand crafted furniture, antiques and rich textiles, it retains the same luxurious ambiance, while boasting fully modern amenities. The forty acre jasmine scented garden, centered by a sparkling pool and al fresco dining, is the perfect place to relax between sightseeing excursions. More active guests will enjoy the adjacent 18 hole golf course or a ride on one of the horses or camels stabled on hotel grounds.
