Welcome to Desert Rose Eco-Lodge
The Desert Rose Eco Lodge is set in serene, beautiful Bahariya surrounded by desert and hot springs. Built to capture the spirit of the old oasis using local palm tree branches and natural clay. As well as providing accommodation in beautiful grounds, we also grow our own organic food for our guests.
The Desert Rose follow a simple eco-lodging philosophy allowing our guests to find a quiet getaway from city life. With easy access to the White and Black Deserts, the Desert Rose also offers adventurous and unforgettable excursions into the beautiful dunes of Bawiti.
The Desert Rose Eco lodge is a product of creative thinking which merges Egyptian heritage with global eco-friendly concerns and we are proud to list below the great efforts we have put into this:
- The entire construction of the Lodge has been carried out by local craftsmen.
- We use water from local wells for everything in the Eco Lodge, and for the drinking water, we filter through old large jugs called ‘zeer’. Bottled mineral water is also available.
- Bed linen and all materials in our eco lodge are made of 100% cotton, grown in Egypt.
- All services used are locally owned and operated; therefore your money remains 100% in Egypt.
- Our drivers take care not to destroy vulnerable terrain.
- We cook using ingredients from our own organic farm (including courgettes, peas, tomatoes, onions and beans). Everything else is bought or grown in the Oasis to guarantee freshness and to support the local community.
- We collaborate with the village authorities to separate waste and to dispose of it properly.
We can arrange fantastic Desert Safaris, camping in the desert and tailor-made local excursions within Bahariya and to the other Oases; Siwa, Farafra, Dakhla and El Kharga.
