Grab your loved one, hop in your getaway car and head to Fayoum’s hotspot. The picture-perfect Lazib Inn Resort & Spa is ready to take your mind off of your weekday stresses.
Isn’t it time for a little self-indulgence with an escape to the countryside? There must be a host of reasons to reward yourself; those extra-long working hours you have been putting in, the stress of city life, the first signs of spring. And, lest we forget, Mother’s Day! A short hop from Cairo, nestled on the banks of Fayoum’s Lake Qarun in picturesque Tunis Village, one of our favorite getaway spots, Lazib Inn Resort & Spa, has just expanded with the addition of 6 new suites. Still bijou, and blissfully private, this boutique hotel now offers 14 beautifully appointed suites. Expect all the amenities of luxury hotel living, from huge flat screen TVs to wood burning fireplaces. The spacious suites also boast either a balcony or a terrace to relax on, and are tastefully decorated to reflect the colors and ambience of the surroundings.
You shouldn’t get so comfortable that you forget to leave your suite, because Fayoum in spring is picture postcard pretty. With activities galore right on your doorstep, from horse-riding, bird-watching and felucca trips, to desert sightseeing with a host of Ancient Egyptian, Greco-Roman and Islamic archaeological sites and fossil remains to enjoy, there is no reason to become too lazy. Unless of course, you find the thought of lounging beside the two glorious infinity swimming pools with their mesmerizing views just too irresistible.
The refreshing air perks up appetites to no end, and guests can find just the right nibbles when the mood hits. The Blue Donkey Restaurant offers specialties of the area alongside international cuisine, with dishes using abundant high quality, locally sourced produce. Regulars rave about the Shrimp Konafa, the Stuffed Fayoumi Pigeon and the Grilled Duck Breast, just some of the dishes to put on your ‘must try’ list. There is a full bar, with international and local wines and spirits, in addition to softer options. The Harley Davidson Bar is a great place to kick back and relax, chat and enjoy a game of darts as a wind-up to a perfect day, or if your muscles are feeling the impact of all that sightseeing, slip away to the relaxation of the full-service spa, with its Turkish hammam, private gym, sauna and extensive range of massages. Unwind totally in the outdoor Jacuzzi before heading back to your personal haven and slipping between 800-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for the sweetest dreams ever.
