Egypt Like You’ve Never Seen It: Adrére Amellal Desert Ecolodge

Not only is the hotel made out of kershef, a mixture of clay, salt rock, and water, but the furniture is also eco-friendly, made from local olive and palm trees, covered with luxe cushions and linens. The ecolodge used local artisans and laborers to construct the hotel, and used the ancient method to build it. You’ll find that the hotel restaurant’s food is all organic, grown on the grounds in the hotels garden, — the straight meaning of farm to table. Relax in Adrére Amellal’s spa and spring water pool, while you watch Africa’s blazing sun set in the east. Your room is romantically lit with candles and lanterns, with rooms that feature an unobstructed view of a night sky, constellations hanging above you. The rooms start from $500 on up.

This unique eco-luxury isn’t everyone’s style, you know, the no air conditioning in the desert thing, but for the adventurous, and not-so-hot, this place is paradise.

Let me know if you go.
