Shali Resort Shali Resort where the infinite skies above vast lakes and endless dunes, the whisper of the wind through the palm groves and the trickle of flowing water. A history of thousands of years; the mythical and godlike Alexander the Great, Pharaoh in Siwa Oasis.
Set within the incomparable scenery of the Sahara desert, a rare combination of wilderness and comfort, the resort is arranged as an archipelago of small one-store constructions delicately placed within the dunes.
The restaurant, reception and spa each occupy one of three independent buildings and the guest rooms, each with its own en-suite, sit in groups of three. Built using local construction techniques and materials, the mud rendering of the walls makes the structures aesthetically similar to the old houses of Siwa oasis while constituting an efficient barrier against the external temperature.
The Resort is blessed with an outstanding 200m sinuous swimming pool unraveling through the length of the village. Built like the ancient reservoirs that collected the abundant water gushing out here at Siwa, the pool follows a more renowned example: Cleopatra’s Bath.
This is the reservoir where, according to tradition, the Egyptian Queen would immerse herself during her visits to Siwa. Likewise our sophisticated pool offers countless variety; while some stretches are deep and excellent for swimming, others are shallow enough to stroll through at ease, allowing one to be pleasantly refreshed and massaged by the waterfalls along the way: come and soak yourself in its pleasures!
Guest rooms in the resort have generous space with large (120 cm) twin beds. Suites have a queen size bed in the main area and twin beds in an adjoining room. Each room is fitted with air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini-bar, satellite TV and telephone.
The tasteful décor of all rooms and their amenities is in keeping with the traditional style of Berber dwellings so as not to interfere with the magical atmosphere of the desert by introducing elements foreign to its culture.
