Far from the Madding Crowd

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2006

If you ever want to leave this world - at least for a little while - then Adrere Adellal is the place to stay. It is a unique experience that makes you wonder why you would want to spend money on hotels that 'have everything'. Adrere Adellal has no electricity, no telephones and certainly no nightclub. Instead it has peace, beauty and some of the best food you will get to try anywhere in Egypt. The hotel was built in the late 90's as an Eco-lodge project and all the buildings here were built by local men in a traditional style with rocksalt and mud. If that sounds too basic, it isn't! Every room is imaculately done, with large walk in showers, crisp cotton sheets on the bed and beewax candles positioned everywhere to light your way when the sun goes down. You are given breakfast, lunch and dinner here with each meal being served in a different place each day, so you get to experience everything from a carved rock ceiling, to a star filled sky above you. During the day you can spend your time relaxing in the old Roman springs that serve as a swimming pool, or you can take a dip in the salt lake itself. The Adrere Amellal also has stables for the ultimate horse trek around the lake. The staff here are probably what makes this place so special. Incredibly discreet, yet warm and friendly, they make sure you never feel rushed or bothered. This hotel is obviously a labour of love and the experience you get from feeling so close to the environment and all it's beauty here, is one that will last you a lifetime.
