Qasr El Bawity is an eco-lodge set in the middle of a lush palm grove in the heart of El Bawity, the modern capital of the Bahareya Oasis. Built and decorated in the traditional style of the oasis, the lodge offers large, comfortable rooms and suites featuring elegant décor. Eco-friendly construction techniques of ancient Egypt were revived specifically for the building of the accommodation. Each stone has been handpicked from nearby mountains and quarries. This property was built completely out of stone, with no metal or concrete, making it very authentic. Keeping with tradition and historical accuracy, only local materials and craftspeople were used and employed to create this one of a kind hotel. Qasr El Bawity fuses elements of comfort and elegance, and the warmth of its interior is balanced harmoniously with its mountain-like exterior, enabling you to enjoy a blend of luxury and tradition in a way that pays tribute to the natural beauty of the region.
The comfortable and large Standard Rooms are elegantly furnished and feature an ensuite bathroom. The accommodations have natural rock walls that are at least half a meter thick to keep the room warm in winter and cool in summer.
