Adrere Amellal desert lodge is located in the west of Egypt in the Siwa oasis almost eight hours from the capital by car. The oasis was described by Wilfred Jennings-Bramly as: "The famous oasis of Siwa…cannot be said to have fallen from its high estate…only it has stood still while the world went on." The lodge is the most famous hotel in the area situated at the foot of the White Mountain, and is a secluded desert ecolodge made of earth buildings that blend naturally into the landscape. Its pristine location offers direct access to the salt lake as well as the Great Sand Sea.
Each one of its hand-built 43 rooms is unique, combining distinction and authenticity. All the furniture and crafts pay tribute to nature and to talented local artisanship. With no electricity, the rooms are softly lit with a dozen beeswax candles and the starry sky.
