My husband and I arrived in the late afternoon. We were immediately impressed with the friendly staff and the setting for the lodge. (There are groves of date palms and olive trees all around the lodge.) Even more impressed when shown our upstairs room--large, beautifully decorated room with spacious bath (hot water always available). Cold bottles of water in a... More

Our party of four guest and three dogs arrived in Siwa tired and dusty after two nights of desert camping, and we were greeted with tall glasses of flavourful lemonade. We occupied three rooms. The walled lodge is peaceful, and situated along a town road and surrounded on three sides by a date plantation. The rooms are built around a... More

The place is very nice, well maintained, clean. The rooms are large, well built, comfortable. We had a ground floor room with a private garden/orchard in the back. Not all windows are properly covered with curtains, so there might be some privacy concerns. The restaurant is nice and in winter they have a working fireplace. We had huge problems with... More

From the moment we arrived and the whole building was lit by candlelight in the evening, this ecolodge exceeded all our expectations. The setting is absolutely beautiful - plants, trees and flowers surrounding a pool, with spacious and cool rooms around the edge. We were made to feel very welcome, and the guys at the ecolodge were always very polite... More

When we first arrived to the Ecolodge, we just realized we were the only ones there at the place, which is fine. However, the pool as filthy!! There was no "Spa", and there was literally nothing to do on the resort, we had to leave to go to a local Cafe in order to use the Wifi. When they did... More

Spent in the lodge with my wife 2 nights as part of a group and extended additional one night on our own. It is an awesome lodge though it’s not an “eco” lodge since there is electricity, TV, fans and sewage system but this is just a debatable "definition" that didn't affect our high quality stay. The location is a... More

The lodge is an excellent surprise. Not only the place is amazingly beautiful and quiet , but also the staff is very sweet, the moment we walked in we felt we are so welcomed. It is suitable as a base to visit Siwa attractions or have alone time. The room: is spacious, with Siwan ethnic style, almost all made of... More

Siwa as such is not anymore an Oasis, but rather a busy and dirty palce in the middle of the dessert. But within the walls of Ghaliet you get back the feeling of being in an Oasis, just as it has been 25 years ago. Beautiful rooms, great design, striking simplicity, good functionality and extremely friendly service. Not the cheapest... More

I cannot recommend this hotel more highly! We stayed four nights in wonderful surroundings within 2 kilometres of the centre of Siwa (bicycles are easy and inexpensive to hire) and had first class service with deliciously cooked local produce
