The hotel owns and runs plots of farmed land that supply the chef with fresh vegetables. There is a zoo on-site and plenty of space for walking or jogging around the island.
If your holiday is booked via a British tour operator, the Movenpick will cost you a fraction of the cost than if you do an independent booking.
The hotel's cuisine is also five-star, and the Movenpick chain is famous for its ice cream (and what a variety of flavours - yummy).
Crocodile Island is found about 5km south of the heart of Luxor, but the hotel has a regular bus and motorboat service. Besides, there is always a taxi to take you to town for the fixed price of 10 Egyptian pounds (less than 1.5€).
The surroundings are perfect for a relaxing holiday, where you place your reclining chair on the perfectly trimmed lawn, get a good book, and absorb the sunshine, with the sole disruption of bird sounds.
There is round-the-clock room service, a bank on-site, and splendid entertainment at "Fellah's Tent," where evening folkloric dance, shows, and barbeques are held.
