Shali Lodge in Siwa Oasis (Kenooz Shali)

Shali Lodge in Siwa Oasis (Kenooz Shali)


Constructed using popular Siwan ways, Shali Lodge allows 20 rooms of various forms and dimensions. The lodge has been running since 1999 and was designed in collaboration with local Siwan craftsmen and developers as part of an enterprise to relive the fading culture of Siwan architecture and building.

Set within the exceptional landscape of the Sahara desert, a unique blend of wilderness and relaxation, the resort is planned as an archipelago of small one-story buildings carefully located within the sandy hills.

The restaurant, reception, and spa each occupy one of three independent buildings, and the guest rooms, each with its own en-suite, sit in groups of three. Built using local construction techniques and materials, the mud rendering of the walls makes the structures aesthetically similar to the old houses of Siwa while constituting an efficient barrier against the external temperature.

The resort is blessed with an outstanding 200m sinuous swimming pool unraveling through the length of the village. Built like the ancient reservoirs that collected the abundant water gushing out here at Siwa, the pool follows a more renowned example: Cleopatra’s Bath. This is the reservoir where, according to tradition, the Egyptian Queen would immerse herself during her visits to Siwa.

Likewise, the sophisticated pool offers countless varieties; while some stretches are
deep and excellent for swimming, others are shallow enough to stroll through at ease, allowing one to be pleasantly refreshed and massaged by the waterfalls along the way: come and soak yourself in its pleasures!

You can enjoy your stay at this beautiful hotel while having an impressive Siwa Oasis tour from Cairo!
