A converted 1940’s British military field hospital, located at the edge of the Eastern Desert, only a short distance from the Azraq and Shaumari nature reserves. It has an authentic period atmosphere, combined with a modern twist, and provides comfortable and characterful accommodation from which to explore the Eastern Desert. There are 16 fully equipped 1940’s style rooms, air conditioned with private bathrooms and terraces, overlooking Azraq Village and sand flats of the Azraq Basin. The rooms can accommodate up to 40 people at full capacity. All the staff members are from local Bedouin, Chechen, and Druze communities and the kitchen and restaurant are under the management of a local family, who provide home-cooked Chechen food. The Lodge is open all year.
