Romancing Egyptian Design

 Clearly fitting for a Country soaked in Sand and Sun,
Egypt is a Perfect Study of Monochromatic Neutrals and Pure Whites.
It's a Land tightly wrapped in it's Ancient Roots, where an almost
singular vision creates a Beautiful Combination that's
 both Mysterious, Rustic and Serene.
So why not begin this journey with a little "Mummy" music
then begin the scroll down to take a brief glance into just what
makes Egyptian Design so entrancing.

The Adrere Amellal is only candlelit - there is no electricity or phones.

Best way to visit Egypt? Of course Cruise the Nile!  This particular yacht is part of the Royal Dahabiyas Nile Cruise Line -  a photo of one of the 8 cabins is below:
