Description

Where Nature welcomes you!

The Desert Lodge enjoys a splendid view, overlooking the Heritage-protected oasis of Al Qasr and the distant sand dunes and mountains of the Sahara desert. It is built in traditional architectural style and is one of the few eco-designed Hotels in Egypt. Local craftsmen, using only local and natural materials, carried out the entire construction of the Lodge.

Our Lodge hosts 32 large rooms, each measuring more than 32 m2 and all with private bathrooms. The rooms are simply but tastefully furnished in the local style; all have high ceilings and are equipped with a fan. Most of the terraces have spectacular views either over the village or to the nearby mountain range.

The Lodge is conveniently located, enabling easy access and discovery of the surrounding areas. Fantastic and unspoiled nature, authentic villages, lush vegetation and some spectacular archaeological sites from the Pharaonic, Roman, Christian and Islamic periods can easily be reached; the Sahara with its wonderful sand dunes awaits you.

We will gladly help you to organise your time: we have mountain bicycles for rent; guided hikes; excursions into the desert by 4x4 vehicles; camel trips. We provide guided excursions to the village; half day and full day tours; even excursions of several days to the White Desert and Crystal mountains, Great Sandsea and Gilf Kebir or the ancient Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel sites.
