A stone property built to blend into its desert setting, the Adrère Amellal is spectacular. Minimalist design lets the sheer beauty of its location and the raw quality of the natural materials take centre stage. The main fortress is a labyrinth of beautiful rooms and spontaneous architecture. The rooms are cosy, lit by sun in the day and beeswax candles at night, with soft white sheets and woven carpets, they feature beautiful hand carved furniture, such as rock salt bedside tables. A true highlight is the theatre and quality of the food. With a varied choice of dining areas, hidden through a maze of tunnels and all lit exclusively with candles creating a delicate glow, choose to eat in your own hidden cave or alfresco. With daily handpicked vegetables and creative dishes fully organic and homemade, the bounty of authentic flavours shows off the traditional food of Egypt with European twists. Around sunset an array of liquors is served along with mouth-watering appetisers again boasting exquisite culinary skill. These small details are what make this stay truly unique.
