Adrere Amellal, Egypt

The famous oasis of Siwa

  • Adrere Amellal, Egypt

WHY WE LIKE IT

This oasis is totally detached of the world as we know it. A stay at Adrere Amellal is a big step back in time, but still with the comfort we desire.

HOTEL DESCRIPTION

Adrere Amellal is established in Egypt’s Western Desert and is definitely  a place out of time.   The  earth buildings blend naturally into the landscape, like mother nature made them herself. The building may best be described as a giant luxurious sandcastle..                                                                                         
Each one of their 40 hand-built rooms is unique, combining distinction and authenticity. With no electricity, the rooms are softly lit with a dozen beeswax candles and the starry desert sky. At a disconnected location like this you do not expect a tastefully cuisine, but Adrere Amellal proves the opposite. The secret? Most of the mainly organic food is grown in the grounds or sourced locally, so vegetables and fruit are bursting with flavor.

ACTIVITIES

Drive, walk, play or dine in the rolling dunes of the Great Sand Sea. Looking for a getaway with something different for the eyes than just sand? Visit the blue stretch of the salt lakes nearby.
