Akin to an intimate river yacht, the Sanctuary Sun Boat III represents the ultimate in luxury and relaxation on the Nile. Modeled after the opulent era of the 20s and 30s, splashes of crimson have been used to draw out the richness of the decor. The Sanctuary Sun Boat III offers guests indulgent interiors where comfort and style are reflected inside and on deck to give a beautiful and natural look.

Accommodation
Discover the essence of tranquility in 18 beautifully designed cabins and suites. With two Royal Suites, two Presidential Suites and 14 luxury cabins, you are guaranteed to be cocooned in elegance. The 14 luxury cabins are all appointed with old fashioned four poster beds, draped with Egyptian linens. The shutters are the traditional focal point of the cabin and are a striking design element.

Each cabin is fully air-conditioned and has a beautiful Nile view. All the suites have bathtubs, while all other cabins have showers. There is a hairdryer, mini bar and LCD television with satellite available in all cabins and suites. International telephone access is available through the reception.

Facilities
The Sanctuary Sun Boat III has an upper sun deck known as ‘Cleopatra’s Oasis’ with a swimming pool, a shaded deck, the Sahara lounge, and H. Carter lounge bar. The Copper Tray restaurant is spacious and seats 36. In addition, there is a game room with computer and internet access and a laundry service.

Dining Aboard the Sanctuary Sun Boat III
International cuisine as well as local flavor ensures that the chef and staff cater to all tastes. Extravagant buffets, elegant a-la-carte dinners, extensive local and international wine lists and upper deck barbecues are all offered. Expert chefs can also cater to specific dietary needs of guests.

Environment and Responsible Travel
Strict recycling and hygiene procedures are followed on board, minimizing impact on the local environment. In addition, the Sanctuary Sun Boat III has cleaned and made extensive alterations to one of the docking areas in the area – transforming an informal rubbish dump into a small garden. This exemplifies how the crew always strives to promote a greener, cleaner Egypt.
