Oberoi Philae

    Oberoi Philae is an extraordinarily beautiful and private ship, with just 22 cabins and accommodations for 42 guests, modern amenities, and a relaxed, elegant ambiance.

    Her 22 cabins, including 4 suites, are large and comfortable, with ample space for storage. Bathrooms are large too. Windows are nearly floor to ceiling and slide open, offering idyllic views of the Nile and the passing scenery. The topmost deck has a swimming pool that is among the largest of any Nile ship, and an al fresco restaurant where lunch is served, weather permitting. Downstairs, there’s a stylish enclosed restaurant as well. A spa and a professional wellness specialist add an extra level of amenity and comfort. The lounge is the venue for talks and recaps, and there are a number of other public spaces for you to discover—to relax, read, and enjoy the views.

    Standard Cabin Amenities, Comfort & convenience in every cabin:
    • Air-conditioning/heating • Basic amenities: You’ll find botanically-inspired shampoo, shower gel, a hair dryer, and an SPF 15 lip balm in your cabin.
    • Cabin keys: We do not issue keys to the cabins on this vessel. Cabin doors may be locked from the inside. Each cabin has a desk with a locking drawer.
    • Electrical current: Each cabin is equipped with 110-volt (standard American-style) outlets. Electric razors, hair dryers, and other small appliances may be used in cabin outlets. Please note that the electrical current is sometimes uneven, so we suggest you use a surge protector if you have one for your computer or other sensitive equipment.
    • Luggage storage: Your cabin has been designed so that luggage can be stored under your bed. There is ample space to hang and store clothing in your cabin. Due to space limitations, we cannot store your luggage in other areas on board the ship.
