There is no electricity and the rooms are intimately lit with homemade beeswax candles.
Explore Siwa day and night with Adrère Amellal taking care of all the details. Go 4X4ing in the dunes or visit the desert hot springs. Discover Siwa town and see the Temple of Amun, the Mountain of the Dead or the ruins of Shali Fortress. Enjoy your view of the salt lake, contrasted with the warm yellow of the sand dunes. Horseback Ride through the desert for the ultimate Siwa adventure.
Everything is grown on the property so it's fresh, organic and bursting with flavor. Try the spinach soufflé.
