Albabenshal Heritage Lodge

Albabenshal Heritage Lodge sits amidst the jagged ruins of Old Shali, a 13th century citadel in the centre of Siwa. The construction of the village ecolodge began with ancient, dilapidated Siwan homes that were renovated using traditional kershef, a mixture of sun-dried salt, mud and sand.

Albabenshal currently offers 11 guest rooms on three levels, connected through a network of alleyways and terraces that look over central Shali and the palm groves beyond. Inside, guest rooms are furnished and decorated in authentic Siwan style, with colorful Bedouin carpets, palm frond chairs, tables and beds, and linens of fine Egyptian cotton embroidered by women of the oasis. On the main terrace, the Albabenshal Restaurant serves a diverse offering of Siwan dishes.
