    This cute hotel is owned by a German Peter who was very friendly and accommodating. Its like a little village in its own right with gardens and a lovely restaurant and of course the hot spring pool which was very relaxing. The rooms were a bit sparse but comfortable and clean and we enjoyed our short stay. They also have locally made crafts for sale at very fair prices.

    Like a village of small houses, a pool, restaurang and Peter's bar in a beduin house. The bed were a bit hard, but otherwise a lovely stay on our tour between the oases.

    Oasis within an Oasis, Little paradise in the desert

    Peter who manages this hotel with his wife, their staff of local bedouins and the locals from the village of Bawati do a fantastic job at respecting the environment, protecting the environment and at the same time giving a great service. He is very welcoming, helpful and informative about the surroundings. The rooms are immaculately clean, neat with lovely cooling colours and comfortable. The roof top sitting area in the desert is a great place to relax. They offer messages and the Oasis sulfar water which looks disgusting is warm and great for the skin. He can organise your jeep safari into the desert with a local bedouin in a 4x4. There is a cozy lounge bar for drinks in the evening.
    We had breakfast and dinner there and I guess my only negative part of the stay was the food was a little dissappointing for the price we paid. We opted out of lunch on our departure and stopped at a well known BBQ place which was local, yummy with lots of food!
    What I enjoyed about the International Hot Spring Hotel is the excellent honest service and his emphasis being green in every way possible. It is very easy to walk into Bawati.
    If you arrive by bus from Cairo, Peter will send someone to pick you up and bring you to the hotel.
    I have sent several freinds from Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Mexico to experience Peter's hospitality and all have returned loving it very much. Nobody was disappointed in their stay. All thought my detailed description of the this little Oasis was precise!
    It is a great place to unwind after a day in the desert or after having spent the night in the desert...
    I appreciate Peter's honesty, helpfulness, directness, frankness and welcome. If you want to do something different for a weekend from Cairo, this is a must.
    I researched most of the hotels in the area and this by far was one of the top, reasonablly priced.
    Highly recommended

    Day 3 Into the desert

    So we set off at 6:30 for the Bahariya Oasis and Western desert with our guide Medhat and driver Mohammad. It is a 3-3 1/2 hour drive. Mid way we stop at a café/store stop which is a real experience for Jeff hee hee. The lavatory facility left much to be desired as it was very literally 2 open stalls consisting of a hole in the floor and a hose! …

    ... it was kind of a desecration to have them on display although another part of me realizes the historical significance
    From the museum we headed to the tomb of Bannantiu, believed to be a rich wine merchant. Again camera were not permitted (not a problem when it wont work!) to help in the preservation of the site. We carefully climb down into the tomb and WOW. The walls are painted in glorious color. The paintings show Bannantiu ...

    ... We were taken to a single mother's home where she lives with her extended family. The woman we were speaking with was fairly liberal, compared to her two sisters. She was willing to answer questions about women in an Islamic society and how she has seen things change. She talked about her divorce and how that takes place in Egypt. It was a really fascinating evening and I'm so glad everything worked put the way that it ...

    ... of seeing and doing things that I now realise I've come to think of as normal. Sleeping out among the stars. Desert landscape. Camping. Lack of sound. They're all common in Western Australia. For people from other places, however, doing those things is a real novelty. Samy offered us another desert sleep out tonight which I turned down but Pam agreed to. I've figured I've been there done that with desert camping. I haven't had a shower in two days and would ...

    ... up with some French tourists. Clambered down again and drove around more dunes to the English mountain, called this because it was where the English army had an outpost during WW1 as it was the highest point around. Still remains of the building on top, Mike and I walked right up to the top, Mike planked again! Drove back to Bahariya, stopping for camel photos. Arrived back at the hotel about 5, dinner about 6. Quite a few mozzies as we were waiting ...
