The siwa oasis is located at the banks of the self-titled lake in egypt around 50 km east of the libyan border - a desert land of rock and sand that has been inhabited by various civilizations for over 10,000 years and still holds vestiges of evidence. the ancient siwan houses, crumbling over years of abandon, have been restored and extended using traditional methods to create the ‘adrere amellal hotel’, an eco-lodge so sensitive to its environment it does not offer wifi, phone service, electricity, or the usual trappings of contemporary comfort. Instead, a visit to the hotel frees you from the industrialized world and presents a window into history, it allows you to experience the night sky, lake breeze, and desert landscape as it has always been enjoyed.
