The sun is shining and summer is in full swing at Residence Arabesque. Our beautiful gardens are thanks to our lovely gardener Sobhy. Two years ago he helped us design and build our little oasis in the desert and with his care and attention to detail our gardens are now maturing and offer our guests the perfect place to relax Here are some of the colours you can expect when you are relaxing in the hammock or eating dinner on the terrace. Hibiscus and bougainvillea are two of the most prominent blooms in a desert garden, they come in a variety of colours and forms. We also have mature date palms, olive trees, acacias and jasmine. Our resident Egyptian tortoises (Testudo kleinmanni) wander freely among the plants and if you are lucky you may spot a gecko hunting insects in the evening.
