Adrere Amellal Lodge

Located around 15 minutes drive from the town of Siwa, Adrere Amellal Lodge was built with 100 percent Siwan labour so that it would fit entirely into the architectural styles of the oasis.

During the day sunlight shines through rectangular blocks of semi-transparent salt, brought from nearby salt-water desert lakes, which form the walls of the main restaurant. At night, candlelight turns the salty walls gold. The theme is cultural and natural. The walls of the 34 rooms are adorned with coin-like stones gathered from the desert, Siwan tapestries and carpets. The lodge garden provides organic food for residents. And a natural hot spring, one of 230 in the oasis, serves as a swimming pool.
