Indagare Loves

  • The art culture in Tunis Village, home to pottery schools and art centers
  • The spacious suites that each boast an artistic flair and a curated mix of furnishings
  • The lush, tropical setting on Lake Qarun with desert dunes in the distance


Only an hour’s drive from Cairo, Fayoum is Egypt’s oldest city as well as the country’s most fertile region because of large Lake Qarun. This uniquely lush setting in the midst of the desert has drawn settlers for generations and has cultivated a lively art culture in Fayoum’s Tunis Village. In the heart of Tunis Village on the shores of Lake Qarun, the charming and playful Lazib Inn houses eight unique suites that display the owner’s curated collection of global treasures, from hand-painted ceramics and handwoven rugs to wood carved furniture. All suites have a king bed, wood-burning fireplace and spacious bathrooms with rainfall showers and Jacuzzis. The Blue Donkey Restaurant serves delicious Middle Eastern cuisine in a spacious, light-filled dining room that incorporates similar curios and artworks as the rooms. On the grounds, guests can enjoy two large outdoor pools and the spa, which includes a hammam, gym and multiple treatment rooms. Off property, guests can immerse themselves in a variety of activities, such as pottery making, strolling through the art galleries and artisan workshops in Tunis Village, visiting archeological sites and ancient temples, bird watching, sailing on Lake Qarun, hiking and horseback riding.

Who Should Stay

Art aficionados and laidback active travelers who want to explore this unique desert oasis just an hour from Cairo.
