We spent a super 3 days in Bahariya: two nights in the hotel and one night in the desert camping. We were able to see the sights around the oasis: the date plantation the tombs, the golden mummies and the mountains in the black desert. Then a trip to the white desert which is breathtaking and camping back in the... More

Came back five years after my last visit - still just the perfect starting place for a nice desert safari. Sure, the hotel is not the Hilton - but who needs 5 Stars accommodation in Baharia? The place is clean, rooms are well furnished, the food is good - and Peter and his staff will do their very best to... More

I've been reading some of the reviews of this place and saw that many people complained about the manager's attitude and the food quality (apparently, being served a banana as a dessert is found to be quite outrageous). I personally found Peter welcoming and the food very nice, especially taking into account that more or less that's the typical Egyptian... More

The oasis is wonderful and the hotel clean but the management really made our weekend stay an exercise in avoidance. Every transaction with the owner and reception was by default unpleasant; they are aggressive and rude and many simple queries are responded to with: "this is our hotel, we are like this, you can go and I will sell this...

after a weekend in the desert this is a sight for sore eyes...until we met Peter the manager... Chillingly nice when he greeted us, but woe betide you should a child play with a ball somewhere or should you ask (jokingly) where the TV is or if you may have an extra bed... He and his wife who man the... More

If you want to have some good time and relaxation with the warmth of home visit this family run hotel. I stayed there for four days although only basics are available at the hotel I found that this is the best thing about the hotel, no tv, no noise, just relax and swim inside the hot spring and enjoy sitting...

Although the rooms at the hotel were basic we were very comfortable and Peter, our host, extremely helpful and knowledgable. After a long day travelling, to retreat to his dome shaped bar/lounge was unexpected and relaxing. By nature I am not a camper but the trip and overnight out in the desert were so memorable I was more than happy... More

After the grunge of the Siwa Paradise Hotel we arrived in Bawiti at the International Hot Spring Hotel for two nights. What a difference! We were met with the loquacious, Peter, who is the perfect host and offered us hibiscus juice drinks. He explained the essentials regarding meals, the location of the rooms, and the Black Mountain sunset we could... More

After reading many excellent reviews about this hotel and their white desert tours, we decided to use them even though they cost more than some of their competitors believing we would have a better tour in the end. One of the most disappointing parts of the tour was the lack of communication from the driver, although this was a private... More

nested in a cluster of sweet-smelling Oleander, Flame Trees and Frangipani the hotel rooms were clean and tastefully decorated. Most memorable, however, was the personal attention I received from the owner during my stay, being one of the few remaining guests of the season, which went a long way to attenuate the solitude. At sundown we enjoyed a beer together... More
