The term “Eyaru” is an old heliographic name that represents the ancient Egyptians’ concept of heaven, the afterlife for ancient Egyptians where they reside in the Eyaru fields. When Eyaru was in the design process, it was inspired by the notion of Eyaru. Everything on Eyaru was inspired by and tailored to the “Eyaru” idea. It was created to demonstrate and fully enjoy the real Egyptian culture of the region.

The Egyptian spirit is central to Eyaru. You will be immersed in Egyptian culture and will notice the Egyptian soul in everything around you. Everything on Eyaru is handcrafted, right down to the plates and carpets. Every chamber has a different design inspired by the notion of Eyaru during the period of the Ancient Egyptians, so you’ll enjoy the Egyptian atmosphere in each one.

You will be treated to the most exquisite hospitality while discovering new locations in Egypt via innovative routes. You will visit several spectacular sights along the Nile River between Luxor and Aswan, including El Hagz Island, Bassaw Village, and Gebel El-Silsila, which are exclusive to Dahabiyas and not available on major cruises. You will not only be able to tour the wonderful sights between Luxor and Aswan, but you will also be able to experience true local life in each city and tour their marketplace. In Bassaw Village, you will stay at the home of a local and interact with him and his family. You will spend a day in the life of an Egyptian and witness how they actually live.

The Egyptian vibe will also pervade your meals on Eyaru. During your stay, all of your meals will be traditional Egyptian cuisine. You may also buy fresh ingredients for your supper that night or fish to cook on the sundeck on your travels to the local shops! You will get the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the Egyptian lifestyle. There is also the option of attending live cooking sessions of your supper and learning local dishes to attempt when you return home.

Due to Eyaru’s most prominent feature, its pergola, Eyaru may be enjoyed all year. A section of the sundeck is glassed off by the pergola. So there’s no need to stay indoors during the winter months and lose out on the Nile’s beautiful beauty. As a result, Eyaru is one of few Dahabiyas that sail between Luxor and Aswan.

Eyaru has no motors and is towed by a tugboat from afar, so you won’t hear or feel anything throughout your journey. For the first time on the Nile, the Eyaru crew sleeps on board the tugboat at night, giving you full solitude.
