Adrère Amellal Desert Ecolodge

Adrère Amellal Desert Ecolodge

Hotel Facilities

The eco-lodge created by Dr Mounir Neamatalla at the foot of the “white mountain” is like some fairytale casbah from ”A Thousand and One Nights” – a castle of clay, sand and salt. The building is all done with local materials: with kershef – a traditional mixture of sun-dried rock salt, clay and straw –  for the walls, with sandstone for the bath­rooms, palm trunks and fronds for chairs and hand-woven fabrics for coverings. Everything is minimalist and harmonious

Adrère Amellal Desert Ecolodge is a paradox in process, mingling the asceticism of a Cistercian monastery, the luxuries of a Turkish seraglio, and the whimsy of a Cape Cod Sandcastle located at the foot of the White Mountain in Siwa Oasis, 8 Km outside Siwa Oasis,  Adrère Amellal is an eight-hour drive from Cairo.

Room Amenities:

Each one of our hand-built 40 rooms is unique, combining distinction and authenticity. Earth buildings blend naturally into the landscape. All the furniture and crafts pay tribute to nature and to talented local artisanship. With no electricity, the rooms are softly lit with a dozen beeswax candles and the starry desert sky.
