Our favorite places to stay in Southern Morocco

One of the traveling experiences in Morocco should be to try the different types of accommodations the country has to offer. Hotels you find anywhere in the world, but where you can stay in riads, auberges, kasbahs, caves, desert camps? We think only in Morocco.

Here is list of our favorite places we recommend while journeying through the Southern Morocco:

1. Auberge Le Festival

This small auberge with just few rooms, is located just by the Todra Gorge, not too far from Tinerhir. We love this auberge for several reasons. You can spend night in comfortable ensuite bathroom in real caves. The location is built in very quiet area, where at night you see millions of stars. The owner of the property, Moroccan man with his wife, lives on site ensuring that all runs smoothly.

2. Ksar El Kabbaba

This is a large Kasbah type of accommodation. It is set in the Skoura Oasis in the midst of the palm trees. What we like about it is the large garden full of organic vegetables and many hidden secret corners where one can hide and enjoy the garden. There is large pool and even small that is great for children.

On the property you find also gym room, beautiful spa with some amazing Jacuzzi. The rooms and suites are comfortable, all done with great eye for detail. We personally love that right next to the Ksar is an old Kasbah. You get to see the new and old next to each other. Bonus, great views from the terrace on the palm trees of Skoura and also the High Atlas Mountains in the background.

3. Desert Luxury Camp

While in Merzouga, Erg Chebbi, you should stay in this comfortable Desert Luxury Camp nestled in the middle of the desert sand dunes. Here you find large tents with the comfort of anything you might need. Floors are laden with beautiful, colorful Moroccan handmade carpets, comfortable bedding with luxury blankets and pillows. Of course your ensuite private bathroom with hot and cold water part of your tented accommodation.

It is not only the tents that make this desert camp so special. It is the entire camp where you can unwind and recharge your battery in the many places spread around the camp. Or if you prefer to be more active, camels, sand boards, 4x4WD, guides are all available to take you around to show you the beautiful apricot wind swept desert. http//

4. Kasbah Azul

This is Kasbah that is located in Agdz. What we love about this property is the location! Located right on the edge of the palm tree oasis of Draa Valley. This is lush green paradise of Morocco, the longest river valley of Morocco. You can easily take a stroll in the palm trees right from the auberge.


5. Atlas Kasbah Eco Lodge

Eco Lodges are another different type of accommodation spread around Morocco. We use on our tours the rewarding winning Kasbah Eco Lodge located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains very close to Agadir. It is literally a fortress on a hill, with outstand- ing views of the Argan forest, and just 20 minutes from the beaches of Agadir.

6. Douar Samra

Douar is another type of accommodation. Located in the Berber village of the High Atlas Mountains only 1 hour away from Marrakech. The accommodation is typical and merges very well into the Berber villages. The rooms are comfortable, with fireplace that is great touch in the winter months. The property has great views of the mountains, beautiful garden and great evening atmosphere full of candle lights.

7. Kasbah Toubkal

This property is like a castle retreat in the High Atlas Mountains close by the village of Imlil. It is located in the high above sea level and overlooks over green mountains valleys, and majestic rocky mountains to over 4000 meters. We love that part of the room cost goes back to the community of the Berber villages.


8. Dar Sofian

Dar in Morocco means home and indeed this “hotel” is an actual large house that ones belong to wealthy Moroccan family. The house is located in Zagora in the Draa Valley, great place to split the drive to Erg Chegaga desert dunes.

Some of the rooms are perhaps small, but in compensates by the beautiful décor and mainly the service and attentiveness of the staff.
