9-days Exclusive Wellness Retreat in the OASIS OF BAHARIYA


Enjoy beneficial wellness programs in the lushly green oasis in Egypt's Western Desert.

If, after a ride through the desert, the sand makes way for welcoming swaying palm trees, you've arrived in the fertile oasis of Bahariya. Far from the modern world, life in the oasis follows it's own relaxed rhythm. Since Pharaonic times, people travel long distances to benefit from the healing qualities of the Oasis' Spring Water.

The hospitable estate Elysium, situated at the edge of the Bahariya oasis, is blessed with its own mineral-rich hot spring. In addition to enjoying the blissful environment, you can bathe in the warm healing spring, enjoy the large spring water filled swimming pool and feast on healthy meals prepared with fresh vegetables and fruits of Elysium's organic garden.

The Oasis Wellness Retreats offer the ultimate opportunity to relax and refresh the mind and nurture your body with clean desert air, warm sunshine and pampering wellness treatments.


Enjoy sparkling vitality with a clean body and a pure mind. A special program providing detoxifing meals of freshly picked organic vegetables and fruits cleans your body of accumulated waste. The cleansing will be supported by energizing massages and detoxifying body wraps.


Experience an oasis of pleasure. A rich wellness pampering program with nourishing body wraps, facial masks and massages. Dream away during the late afternoon's floating sessions in Elysium's spring water pool. Share the joy of abundance in harvesting olives, dates, figs, citrus and apricots.


As the stars twinkle above the desert's winter landscape, this is a perfect time for introspection, reflection and rest. The atmosphere is subdued, facing inward. Meditation calms the mind which offers new inspirations to present themselves. The body receives pampering massages with warming oils and velvet skin scrubs. This Wellness week is centered around the mineral-rich hot spring and the glowing wood fire. Enjoy the serene atmosphere and a touch of romance with candle light dinners.
