Sixteen kilometers from the charming town of Siwa, lies Adrère Amellal.
An ecolodge overlooking Lake Siwa and nestled at the foot of the mystical ‘White Mountain’. Adrère Amellal is host to 40 rooms all built in the traditional Siwan style , walls are made of salt-rock, and palm is used for the roofs. Every room is unique, combining distinction and authenticity.
The earthen buildings blend naturally into the landscape, and all furniture and crafts pay tribute to the talented local artisanship. Other special features include ancient olive and palm groves, slowbubbling Roman springs, and an exquisite cuisine that includes traditional dishes cooked in honey-glazed clay pots. All herbs and vegetables are handpicked daily from our organic garden.
With no electricity and no telephone (cell phones are not permitted outside the room), Adrère Amellal is in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings. Torches, beeswax candles and infinite stars illuminate the setting, while old style braziers warm the cool evenings. A
drère Amellal attracts travellers who are looking for unique, high quality, environmentally and socially conscious accommodation. The ecolodge’s distinctive guests, which have included Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, are a testament to its success.
The uniqueness of the location, the architecture, and the visitor experience continue to attract coverage by reputable publications, bringing international recognition to both the ecolodge, and the Oasis at large.
A plethora of activities are available with the only limitation being the desert’s
mood: relaxing by the pool which is fed by a natural spring and is free of any
chemicals, refreshing oneself by Lake Siwa, discovering the sand dunes of the Great
Sand Sea, travelling back in time in Old Shali and its historic fortress, or horse-back
riding among palm and olive groves.
