Adrere Amellal Eco Lodge is a simple but magical stay by the Siwa Oasis, a remote and beautiful area in the Western Desert of Eygpt. The hotel is a masterpiece of sustainable architecture and design, blending harmoniously with the natural landscape and the local culture. The hotel offers a unique and unforgettable experience of living close to nature and history. All 40 rooms look like they have been carved out of the cream sandstone rocks. In fact, they have been carefully made out of local clay, sand and salt using local techniques so that the lodge perfectly blends into the environment. Adrere is a place for total detox. There is no electricity here at all. At night the place is lit by beeswax candles and the night sky. Guests can make the most of the unique geological environment and biodiversity they are staying in with a swim in the natural spring pool, a hike through the temples and tombs of Siwa or an adrenaline raising dune buggy ride. Rooms are minimal but cosy and calming. Dining is outside, or in an atmospheric grotto. All food is locally produced, organic, and delicious. Expect dishes like organic stuffed tomatoes with herb garden peas and hibiscus risotto.
