OUR PRIVATE DESERT CAMP in the Sahara at Erg Chebbi

Our luxurious private camp is located in the heart of the magical Saharan desert dunes, far from areas visited by other tourists, only accessible by camel or 4x4 vehicle. In a truly magical setting, it is run by a warm and professional staff of locals who will treat us to true desert hospitality. Individual bedroom tents with comfortable beds adjoin to a smaller tent with hot shower, toilet, and sink. The entire camp is covered in colorful Berber carpets with cushions. Food is prepared on-site by a private chef, and traditional candle-lit dinners are served in a cozy restaurant tent. Running water and generator-powered electricity add earthly comforts to a truly remarkable experience. A band of local Gnawa musicians will join us for the evening as dusk turns to dark, revealing an awesome, star-filled night sky.

KASBAH HOTEL CHERGUI in Erfoud

In a privileged, quiet, setting minutes away from the spectacular Saharan dunes, the tasteful and recently constructed hotel is surrounded by large tracts of land next to palm groves and rich vegetation. Comfortable rooms, a tranquil atmosphere, competent and warm staff, and good cuisine—both Moroccan and international—make staying here a memorable experience.  Meals are served indoors or outdoors and there is a spa with massage service and jacuzzi.

ALGILA FES in Fes

The Algilà Fès is nestled at the end of a quiet street near the heart of the ancient labyrinth of the medina of Fes. An architectural gem, it offers modern comforts  in a traditional setting. Comprised of three inter-connected 18th century residences, rooms are arrayed around three separate courtyards adorned with fountains, palm trees, and sitting areas. Delightful details include a rooftop terrace with marvelous views over the medina and a small library of guidebooks and Moroccan literature. 

KSAR IGHNDA by Ait Ben Haddou
