Besides offering quality lodging services, Al Tarfa was to set a model for sustainable tourism development in the Egyptian oases. By building the lodge, we had achieved one of the main objectives; to revive the oasis’ classical building style. Having done so, we consider to have established a base for further archaeological and geographical research. Hence, we moved on, believing that each environment consists of three main elements: the People and their activities, forming the social and economic structure; the culture represented by architecture and antiquity, and the ecology that embraces all of that. Al Tarfa contributes to all three.
