Built in the style of a Traditional House - cool and comfortable inside, with simple but stylishly furnished rooms, the Akhem is a wonderful place to retire to after visiting the cities of Ghardaia.
The best parts are The Gardens and the Food.
The Gardens have a pool, honeysuckle, grapevines and numerous plants and trees that make it a small oasis in the suburbs of Ghardaia.
Food is served in the garden - breakfast at the table and dinner under the canopy at traditional low tables on rugs, with cushions.
I had the best Shorba (soup with lamb and vegetables) here and delicious tagine. In fact, the best food of the trip.
