I felt like home staying here. It had such a comfy hang out area where you could always find someone to play a game of backgammon with. The food was wonderful. The breakfasts were huge! The rooms were decorated Siwa style! They stayed nice and cool in the summer.

Welcome to Egypt ;) Mosquitoes are the problem in most of the African countries. Very few places use pesticides to control their population so Mosquito Repellents are the only working solution for now. you can find a natural remedies on our facebook page ;) https://www.facebook.com/GreatEscapeHolidays?ref=hl More

The garden setting is perfect, the service attentive but the food! Oh wow, one of the best meals we had in the whole of Egypt. The tagine-cooked pomegranate Rommanya was one... More

We had dinner in our first night in Siwa in this picturesque restaurant. The moment you step in, you forget about all your problems or worries. The garden is fabulous. I enjoyed the fresh and tasty food, the silence and the hookah by the fire. I would absolutely recommend the rommanya dish and the milk with dates. Margaret, the owner,... More

This is by far the top choice of restaurants in Siwa. We were so happy with the service, the food and not least the atmosphere that we ate there no less than three times during our trip. The menu does not offer to many choices at first sight, but the food is really fresh and tasty. A must try is... More

The food at Nour el Waha is excellent, but what truly puts it apart is the lounge setting, where you can just hang out after dinner. You can order shisha and some board games.

Set amongst palm trees this place is quiet and charming, but on the day i went, they seemed totally at a loss and the food i got seemed like something hastily concocted from the refrigerator!!
