Set in the heart of the modern capital of the Bahariya Oasis, Qasr El Bawity is close to amazing desert excursions but still in a comfortably secluded location. As you gaze out over the desert from the lodge's hillside location amidst a lush grove of palms, you will find yourself lost in another time.
Qasr El Bawity was built in a traditional style that mingles local building techniques with natural materials to keep all of the 38 rooms and suites at a comfortable temperature year-round. Simple yet elegant, decors and furnishings vary by room, each using the colors of nature and handmade textiles of the region. Each room is also graciously appointed with a generous en suite bathroom.
Traditional Bedouin and Egyptian cuisines are served in the lodge’s El Qasr restaurant, with soups and tagins among the highlights of the menu. Relax on the comfortable benches of the covered patio with an authentic Egyptian coffee from the lodge’s coffee shop. A refreshing spring-fed swimming pool is yours to enjoy by day, while the hot spring provides exquisite night swimming under the stars.
Beyond the stone walls of Qasr El Bawity, desert adventure awaits. Expert guides will lead you through the volcanic remains of the Black Desert, the limestone formations of the White Desert and more endless dunes to explore by camel or desert vehicle. Visit the village of El Qasr, built atop an ancient Egyptian palace, with several Grecco-Roman archeological sites available for you to tour.Request Information
