Badawiya Hotel Farafra is situated at the gateway to the White Desert. It features a traditional mud-brick building with modern room amenities. A pool with surrounding terrace and sun-loungers conveys the mood of a secluded oasis.
Traditional Bedouin-style furnishings with earth tones feature in all rooms. Most rooms have their own private patio while some have views across Farafra Oasis.
The restaurant serves á la carte or buffet style meals as well as light snacks. Badawiya has its own farm producing mostly organically grown food for the restaurant. Meals can also be enjoyed around the pool.
Organised desert safaris are arranged at the spacious, air-conditioned 24-hour reception. A small bazaar sells locally-made handicrafts.
The Badr Museum is a 2-minute walk away. Barawiya can be reached by bus or car from Cairo or Luxor.
