Fodor's Review

Perched on a hill overlooking Al-Qasr, this luxurious eco-lodge commands stunning views of the town and the surrounding desert. Built entirely of local, natural materials, the plastered mud-brick structure blends well enough with Al-Qasr below for many first-time visitors to assume it's the town's citadel. Solar power and on-site recycling facilities have earned it kudos from environmentalists, while guests still enjoy most modern comforts, although not air-conditioning. The rooms are spacious, with mastaba beds, palm frond furniture, and ceiling fans. The restaurant serves alcohol.
