Adrère Amellal

Siwa, Egypt

The well-travelled route not your style? Try a desert oasis 8 hours from Cairo. Adrère Amellal is a sustainable boutique hotel made out of the desert itself. Heat-resistant rock salt and clay walls make a surprisingly luxurious escape from the ordinary, while beeswax candles light the way. Underground Roman springs feed the pool, providing a refreshing plunge after a desert excursion.
