“A pleasant surprise and the highlight of our trip to Egypt!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We took an unexpected side trip to Siwa and booked a hotel recommended by a local friend. Admittedly I was a bit skeptical (I always use Trip Advisor as my guide when booking hotels), so just in case, as a back up, I found Taziry on Trip Advisor, read all the glowing reviews and decided that it sounded much better than what was on offer. Needless to say we ended up at Taziry and all the reviews turned out to be 100% accurate. It would be redundant to repeat the well deserved accolades of previous reviews. I would like to add however that I was totally overcome by the pure beauty of the location ..... imagine riding an Arabian horse at sunset through the Sahara Dessert and coming face to face with an actual oasis, I was literally moved to tears. Call it a vibe, a spiritual awakening, or an epiphany, the beauty of Siwa and the hospitality shown to us by the staff at Taziry are indelibly etched in my mind forever.

Just finished 3 nights at the Taziry Ecolodge and I found it to be an incredible place! Our group of four had an amazing time being pampered with first-rate accommodations - which is rare to find from a Western perspective in Egypt! The hotel is without electricity, and quickly, you realize that you aren't missing much with the way the staff and on-site owner take care of you! The lodge sites on a breathtaking salt water lake with amazing 360 degree sunsets and sunrises!

We ate breakfast and dinner at the resort and saw the sights during the day, so we packed our own lunch. The hotel set us up with a very safe, honest and all-around fun tour guide to take us sand-boarding and other sights. It went great and came back with some wonderful memories!! Also, we had business conference calls to take during our trip, and the owner himself made sure we could use his office for the Internet, which we greatly appreciated!! This allowed us to be able to spend quality time with our friends and also take care of the some business while being absolutely isolated in the desert! Lastly, the on-site owner, Taha, really made our trip with his attention to detail and ensuring we had everything we needed 24/7!

We look forward to returning!

An amazing concept has led to a amazing experience. Nestled beneath a limestone mountain complete with fossils and roman tombs lies this special place 14 kms from Siwa. Local materials have been used to build it so it blends in perfectly. The candle lit rooms are romantic and work well and the solar powered water system was ever ready. The welcome was like coming home and the service friendly and efficient. We had half board, the 3 course meals were first rate candle lit under the stars. It has a Moroccan influence with a range of wonderful flavours . The desserts are to die for! It is located on the very edge of the Sahara so you can go wandering there, ride Arabian horses or go on a 4 wheel drive safari. On the other side it overlooks the beautiful Siwa lake. We would go back there tomorrow. Although there is no fitness centre as such the exercise possibilities surround you with all sorts of different activities. Greg & Deb

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor if possible for an even better view.

We went to Siwa for a late December holiday and were very impressed with this property. It is located in a breathtaking place between the Red and White Mountains and truly an authentic ecolodge. Taha, the manager, made our visit very special. From taking morning runs through
the surrounding areas to arranging perfect excursions (desert safari, Siwa cultural tour) as well as shopping and massage with locally-produced olive oil, this was a serene dream holiday.

We will return most certainly and look forward to enjoying the charm of this fabulous resort again soon. Thank you, Taha, as well as your kind staff!

Room Tip: Siwa does not sell any alcoholic beverages. If you enjoy a nice glass of wine with your dinner, make...

Our experience at Taziry exceeded the expectations I had. We were warmly greeted by the wonderful Fatima who showed us our beautifully decorated room. The service was impeccable. The chef constantly wore a smile on his face and prepared the best Moroccan food I have ever tasted (make sure you request beef tagine with dried apricots and prunes). The owners of the lodge are passionate about the ethos of ecolodges, and were extremely welcoming. There was a feeling of warmth emanating from all the staff who work there.

The location of the lodge is perfect, away from the busier town centre of Siwa. You hear the odd car passing by in the distance, see the lights of Siwa Town on the horizon, then look up and glimpse the moon and stars shining ever so brightly in all their glory. This is the closest you can get to silence in my opinion. Tranquility at its best. A great location to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of cities, and reconnect with nature.

I totally recommend Taziry.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room overlooking the lake. Amazing views in the early hours of the morning!

Our experience at Taziri was amazing...beyond imagination. Food was amazing, staff is great, and place is magical. I never thought I could enjoy a place without the modern day amenities ...like electricity, Internet and everything else, but realized I didn't miss it even for a minute.
It was just amazing. Highly recommend this place for a family retreat or with friends. I felt rejuvenated and would love to go back. It was relaxing and exciting at the same time. The stars are brighter and the environment is tranquil.
