New to the international stage in 2015, Lazib Inn is an authentic Egyptian escape in the heart of magical Fayoum. This lush oasis represents a new standard of luxury in the desert, one that pairs convivial service, international cuisine, extensive wine cellars, perfected spa treatments, and manicured beauty to the shores of the world’s oldest nature reserve on Lake Qaroun.
Lazib Inn is the brainchild of owners Olivier and Nanette Masson, who have infused the lodge with plenty of charming Middle Eastern character. All eight luxury Oasis Suites reflect Egypt’s authentic essence brought to life in colors normally reserved for royalty. Pops of citrine, turquoise, garnet, and sapphire embellish each suite through a refined collection of handmade carpets, bedding, artwork, and antiques, while all of the latest in-room technology connects guests to the modern present. In the end, there is nothing more welcoming than coming back to Lazib Inn to luxuriate in the deep soaking Jacuzzi and settle into the private terrace for breathtaking panoramic views across Lake Qaroun.
Lazib Inn continues its spoiling nature through a variety of surprising luxuries in the desert, namely exceptional cuisine, themed bars, sparkling pools, and spa treatments galore. For instance, within the funky stylings of Blue Donkey Restaurant, guests can take their pick of personally prepared cuisine, from freshly baked authentic Egyptian bread to organic garden-plucked specialties. Whether enjoyed by the indoor fireplace or outside within view of the eternal lake, guests have their fill of delectable dining options. And it doesn’t stop there. Even the spirits come with “spirit,” either in the form of a Harley Davidson sports bar or a world-class wine cellar boasting a rustic wine tasting area and a diverse selection of international wines and champagnes.
Whether embarking on a discovery of majestic Fayoum or simply escaping from bustling Cairo, Lazib Inn is the perfect base from which to fulfill any Egyptian adventure. Fayoum is Egypt’s oldest city and one of the most ancient in all of Africa, and it offers up an incredible array of shimmering sand flats, pristine desert, rich archaeological sites, and plenteous fossil remains. Despite its treasures and proximity to Cairo, Fayoum remains relatively unknown to the tourist circuit, therefore providing visitors with a hyper-personalized experience. From magical horseback rides on Arabian steeds to desert safari excursions into the sand dunes, Lazib Inn lies amid unending adventure. Nearby, the wildlife and ancient fossils of Wadi El Rayan and the 40-million year old whale skeletons of the “Valley of the Whales” lend a sense of history to the region, while trips to the uninhabited Spring Oasis and felucca sailing outings on the eternal Qaroun Lake provide a sense of pampered luxury. And if sand boarding in the desert or bird watching in one of the most important birding locations in Egypt is simply not a priority, guests are free to stay amid the oasis setting of Lazib Inn, swimming in the palm-lined infinity pool and taking advantage of the Turkish bath in the hotel’s enormous spa.Request Information
