This March, we stayed 3 nights at Adrere Amellal and the experience was the most unique and satisfying. To start off, the services offered by Mohamed and Ahmed were exceptional with attention to details and attending to all our requests with a can do attitude. The facilities are awesome. We had a 2 bedroom place that faced Lake Siwa and... More

Very unique and romantic place. I would recommend it essentially for couples since you don't have electricity nor big amusements for kids here (except that you are in the middle of the desert so you can enjoy the silence and contemplate the stars). Guides will organize essential trips around the Oasis for you in a professional way. All the staff... More

There's a good reason why "heaven" is mentioned fairly often in reviews of this place. I hesitated reviewing Adrere Amellal because words would not do it justice. Can you put a price on peace of mind and soul? Then talk about it...?? This is one place, out of two, in the world that I must return to again in this... More

Not sure we were going to actually make to Siwa, I did not book any accommodations in advance. Happy to report we made it to Siwa (definitely worth the effort) attempted to arrange rooms or a view of the property and was told very curtly that the hotel does not accept any guests under any circumstances without a prior Internet...

This lovely hotel must be unique in all the world. It blends beautifully into the landscape of date palms, sand dunes, white mountains and a lake. The price seemed high but it's all-inclusive of meals, sightseeing, drinks and transport to town. Actually, I thought we got a lot for our money. Very romantic!

This is a fantastic place for one of the most memorable stays you'll have. The rooms are great, spacious and all with some private outdoor space. There is a great variety of public rooms, outdoor, semi outdoor and enclosed depending of the time of day and year. There dining rooms of different sizes so you can have a private dinner... More
