A charming hotel set in the middle of a palm grove, Shali Lodge is located within a five-minute walk from the center of Siwa town. Built in traditional Siwan style, it includes 16 rooms, a restaurant (Kenooz), and a rooftop sitting area overlooking the surrounding palm trees and gardens. Shali Lodge welcomes travelers to the natural comforts of Siwan hospitality: simple yet elegant rooms furnished with palm frond chairs, tables and beds complemented with colorful Bedouin carpets. The lodge is conveniently located in close proximity to the archeological sites of the area. The old town of Shali, built in Salt and clay, is only five minutes walk from the lodge, as is the neigboring market-place, where visitors can shop for the unique and colorful handicrafts of Siwa. Shali Lodge’s restaurant is regarded as one of the best in town. Meals are served in a variety of indoor and out door settings. In the evenings, a breezy rooftop tarrace overlooking the surrounding palm trees is the perfect place to dine, or to simply relax and enjoy the splendor of Siwa's star-studded sky. Dishes include Tajin Macarona, Vegetable and Beef Couscous, and our special Date Crêpes. Relax on the terrace, shaded by date-palms that sprout through the floor, or in the den downstairs, strewn with cushions and warmed on crisp nights by a wood-burning fire. Special orders can be arranged for groups who wish to enjoy a slow roasted local free-range delicacy offered in the hotel or as a safari dining.
