Oasis Pool at Luxor offers views of the Pyramid. One of the most recognizable buildings in town, Luxor is a unique resort housed in a bronze pyramid with a colorful sphinx. The hotel is built to approximately three-quarters of the scale of the Great Pyramid of Giza and the casino sits below the largest open atrium in the world. Lobby is a recreation of the temple at Abu Simbel with four colossal statues of a seated Rameses. The guest rooms and luxury suites in the pyramid have sloping walls and balconies. They are suspended into the open atrium of the pyramid. The top three floors are home to large guest suites - consider booking one for a unique experience. Guests reach their rooms in the pyramid by using "inclinators," since the walls of the structure are sloped. However, elevator boxes remain vertical while traveling along a 39-degree shaft. The Oasis spa is a great place to a relaxing treatment.
There is a 120,000 square feet casino which includes popular table games such as Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Pai Gow and Craps. There is also Poker Room, Race & Sportsbook and Keno Lounge. The resort swimming pool features dramatic views of the pyramid and palm trees. There are several entertainment venues to choose from, including the IMAX Theatre and lounge music at Nefertiti's Lounge. Giza Galleria features 13,000 square feet of shopping. Guests can dine at numerous resort restaurants. ISIS serves gourmet continental cuisine, Papyrus offers Asian Cuisine, Hamada of Japan serves Japanese Cuisine, and La Salsa features Fresh Mex food. There is also seafood at Sacred Sea, Pharaoh's Pheast Buffet, Luxor Food Court, Luxor Steakhouse, and other restaurants.
Dining at Isis is a unique experience, a combination of formal elegance and a look back in time. The restaurant features many exact replicas of artifacts found in King Tutankhamun's tomb, including a ceiling decorated with a field of deep blue punctuated by hundreds of golden stars. The restaurant differentiates itself from other dining venues in Las Vegas with only using fresh ingredients imported from all over the country every day, including fish packed on ice and shipped to Las Vegas daily. Isis is one of the few restaurants to receive the international award of excellence, the Chaine des Rostisseurs.
