Hot List 2008

Oberoi Zahra, Cairo

Tel: 20-2-3377-3222

The first Nile cruise ship spa, the Oberoi Zahra's, offers succor from the heat of temple trekking (see "Hot List"). Four treatment rooms have steam baths, incense menus, and picture windows. Thai, Balinese, Ayurvedic, Shiro Abhyangam, and yoga massages relax, as do the ever-changing views of the ancient river, pink striated cliffs, and ruins. Thai staff offer facials with Guerlain products ($74) and whip up body scrubs using banana, oatmeal, orange, honey, tumeric, and coffee beans. Book ahead, and specify a starboard room when in Aswan or Luxor to avoid views of the dock (massages, $95).
