This hotel is an oasis in the middle of the desert. The food is just fantastic yet simple, but real organic taste. The ambience is like being in an Agatha Christie novel. There is no electricity so lighting at night is from candles everywhere, giving a filling of mystery and expectation. Do not expect luxury in decoration. Simple is the norm, but you have all the basics, and remember you are in the middle of the desert, where everything you think of is luxury already. The people that serves and everyone in general are very gentle and helpful even though very few of them knows to speak english.

I did not stay there, but paid a visit by a nice local guide. It was amazing experience to walk around the compound without anyone, except us and the guard. I was feeling as being in folk tales or another world. I really appreciate the way they built the lodge by local material and fitting design with the local style.

Me and my 2 colleagues were the only visitors we arrived at evening and we were impressed with the view We had a wonderful dinner in a stunning place then we had some drinks near a fire place The hotel has no electricity and all furniture are made from local natural materials Staff are very friendly specially Mohamed who can speak English The only minus point is they don't provide mosquito net at bedrooms where mosquitoes are wild (don't forget your mosquito repelant) The whole experience were breath taking

No wonder why pop stars and crown heads have visited this magical luxury ecological place! That's simply unique blend of nature, luxury, privacy and quietness Offering the great view on the oasis lake, at the foot step of the white mountains, the guests can enjoy an ultimate luxury treatment in this hotel. Rooms setup, Cuisine, activities , hotel designs matches the most unique feeling of luxury and nature. Don't forget to download app to identify the stars and planets as the air is so pure the stars will shine like anywhere else... Mosquito repellent is must While many will be wondering about safety being near of Libyan border , may these be in peace, as Siwa is considered as one of the most safest place of egypt . Regarding the access, we came by the brand new highway Cairo matrouh and then a fairly good road from matrouh to Siena. Takes 6 1/2 hours. Congrats to the one who created this hotel and to the one who run it !

Siwa is one of only three places on earth (that I have been to) that I would describe as magical. Alongside Sintra in Portugal and Iceland, Siwa is a place where the sheer beauty and uniqueness of the area will leave your mouth agape. And when in such a place why not stay in accommodation that matches and even adds to the overall experience? Adrere Amellal certainly fits the magical description- the wonderful experience of slowly exploring the dramatic yet semi-secret labyrinth of rooms is only matched by the service of the local staff and surpassed by the incredible food made of local ingredients. If I were being picky I'd say that I would have liked to have seen more luxury in the rooms- they were a bit more rustic than we were expecting for a romantic getaway. There's no way I am letting that stop my review getting five stars though- hoping to return soon!
