Egypt has no shortage of beautiful five-star resorts and comfortable hotels to rest in while you’re on your Egyptian trip. However, if you’re willing to travel off the beaten path just a bit, there is a hidden treasure trove of great eco-lodges all over Egypt that can add wonderful simplicity to your stay.
Taking a look at a few of these eco-lodges, you’ll find that the comfortable beauty you can find in the more low-key lodging of Egypt can be just as great as any five-star hotel might ever be. They are unique small gems of the desert in the midst of massive tourist sights and can prove to be more relaxing for your stay.
If you’re looking to really get away from the hustle and bustle of the world around you, there is no better eco-lodge than the Adrere Amellal. This eco-lodge was recently made famous for being a desert hotel where cellular phones simply don’t exist; they are banned from the premises. In a world that seems to revolve around mobile smartphones, this is a beautiful way to truly escape for a while.
The lodge voted the ‘best in Egypt’ goes to Al Tarfa, with its stunning views of the Dakhla Oasis, and all the benefits of a very modern, luxurious hotel. Al Tarfa is a perfect getaway if you’re looking for the comfort of luxury at the price of an eco-lodge.
It is truly the best of both worlds and maybe good start if you’re looking for something a bit more ‘in-between’ the luxury hotels and eco-lodges.
Not to be missed are the other unique eco-lodges, like Basata, which claims to be the first eco-lodge in Egypt, El-Hammra, El Mandera, which is an environmentally-friendly lodge made from natural materials, Taziry, and so many others. Perhaps the most colourful eco-lodge, though, can be found at the Anakato Hotel, in Aswan. With an authentic Nubian style, this brightly-coloured hotel, or houses, are perfect for any stay.
The hotel itself boasts that it’s the perfect romantic getaway for a honeymoon or anniversary, as it offers quiet privacy as well as breathtaking views of the Nile River, and a step inside the traditional Nubian culture. Truly, a stay at any of these eco-lodges or any of the others in Egypt will provide a unique experience you won’t find anywhere else.
This simply scratches the surface as far as the selection of eco-lodges in Egypt. There is something for nearly every interest and every budget, and while you’re out exploring the beautiful sights and experiences that Egypt has to offer, take comfort in knowing that these eco-lodges will be waiting for you and can provide all the luxury of a highly rated hotel.
In fact, you may find your lodging experience even more memorable at an eco-lodge, with many different styles to choose from to heighten your Egyptian experience during your stay.
