Siwa as such is not anymore an Oasis, but rather a busy and dirty palce in the middle of the dessert. But within the walls of Ghaliet you get back the feeling of being in an Oasis, just as it has been 25 years ago. Beautiful rooms, great design, striking simplicity, good functionality and extremely friendly service. Not the cheapest place, but worth every cent you pay. We had room 10 and that was just superb! The glass window in the roof made it possible to watch the stars from bed. Always would go there again.
