THE EXPERIENCE


Accommodation & Rates

VENUE 1

ARDI SANCTUARY

DASHOUR, EGYPT (Cairo)

The first half of your retreat will take place at Ardi Sanctuary. Tucked within an expanse of palm tree groves and fields in Dashur lies a secluded and quiet haven aptly named Ardi. An environmentally friendly venture, each feature of Ardi is chosen to be sustainable in terms of the architecture, running costs, and the food prepared on premises. Not a single palm tree was removed to accommodate building the structure, all the plants are chosen based on their minimal need of water, including the lack of grass, and all the food is prepared on-site using traditional methods, made with organic and seasonal produce.

VENUE 2

EMBRACE HOTEL

LUXOR, EGYPT

Tucked away between the banana fields and sugar cane, Embrace hotel is a beautiful new retreat space with towering views of Luxor. Embrace is located on the tranquil and calming side of the Nile - the West Bank. The statues of Memnon are just a short walk away. The name is indicative of the feeling the hotel promotes of a warm and welcoming embrace leaving you rested and revived.
