What an experience?!!! We went there as a group in October. The place is really heaven on earth. We were lucky enough to join a private chartered plane that takes you from Cairo. (the hotel organize these planes if you are groups of 20+) So the trip was an hour from Cairo which was great (vs. 8 hrs driving by... More

Stayed here for 3 days. Wow. Amazing place. Total relaxation and return back to basics. No slave to phones, mobiles, laptops, tablets, tv or even electricity. All eco and candle lit evenings. Could enjoy actually seeing the night sky as no light pollution. No noise pollution either, so total peace and quiet. The food is grown onsite and is organic.... More

He will arrange meals at the times of your request, light the dandles in your room, etc. each room is different and has an edge so adds to the total experience. Food us prepared by their in... More

We spent four magical nights at Adrere Amellal last month. The resort sits on the edge of the "Sand Sea", it backs on to the spectacular "White Mountain" and looks across a salt sea. The location is dazzling.....but the buildings are even more special. Each one is built of mud and salt. There is no electricity....just the glow of candle... More

We stayed for 5 nights in December 2014 - if you go 3 nights is enough, 5 nights is too many. We were the only guests at this 42 room property, about 17km from Siwa town. We agonized over staying at the Taziry Lodge or the Adrere Amellal as there is a significant price difference ($600+/night for Adrere or $225/night... More

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.

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
