    kasbah with character in the desert


    from arriving at the kasbah mudbrick exterior through an impressive front door to the impressive decor of the interior and friendly greeting from the management who are relatives of friends we came to have lunch with
    ......reception area with lovely Moroccan carpets on the terracotta tiled floors, garden alcoves under open areas to the sky and interesting paintings on the walls, nice garden area in the centre where we had lunch before a roam for views from the roof up a flight of steps nearby

    ...watch a string of camels walk past, views over to the dunes and over the swimming pool...

    A nice place to come and stay for something different

    About 350-400 dirham for 2 with breakfast included

    Unique Quality: lots of space - this place sprawls from one lounging area to another including the swimming pool area - roof areas also provide lounging and dining areas with views in all directions including direction of sand dunes

    - traditional Moroccan arts and crafts used to decorate throughout so you feel you are having a Moroccan experience

    - wifi

    - swimming pool

    - typical Moroccan food to specialty dishes from the area such as Khalia

    - as with other auberges sunrise, sunset or overnight camel trips and 4x4 excursions can be arranged and provided for

    Directions: follow the signs turning off from the bitumen main road between Rissani and Merzouga....near Hotel Timbuktu

good local dishses such as Kalia!

by angiebabe about Kasbah Mohayut

We had lunch at the auberge/hotel Kasbah Mohayut - you dont have to be an overnight guest at many of the hotels around the desert - give them a call if you can to let them know youd like to come for lunch or dinner is best to make sure and most places will normally be pleased to your custom and visit

The norm is to be served condiments of olives and servings of bread - whether sliced french sticks or their local flat bread, which ever it is it will be fresh - and olive oil and a salad starter - then perhaps a plate of beans which is a local dish - as a main there are the usual tagines of whatever youd like (chicken is the easiest to obtain, but can usually choose also choose mutton and beef or just vegetables)
but there is also my favourite which is the local dish Kalia, chopped up or sometimes just minced beef cooked with tomatoes and spices with some eggs, beaten or just dropped whole on top to cook in a tagine dish - delicious! Kalia and the beans and the salad...everything!

A circuit from Marrakech to Fez....

by angiebabe

Starting in Marrakech and choosing to go via Essaouira and heading on down the coast is a good start to a forum posters query for 13 days in Morocco - heading down from Essaouira with small villages of Imousouane and Tafadna and so on down the coast past Tamri and perhaps seeing the Bald Ibis in the national park there and lots of bananas growing along the way down to Agadir - have a night there in a good hotel such as Hotel Beach Club or Hotel Tazi on the beach, visiting Souss Massa National Park, Aglou plage and Tiznit then over to Tafraoute, -if youre there in Jan or Feb it will be extra special as the almond blossoms will be out near the end of Jan and its even more beautiful to be around Tafraoute for that time of the year - but the months of March, April and May have lots of flowers around to beautify the area even more so too, from Tafraoute good to go up to Taroudant and then on to Ouarzazate via scenic Talouine and Tazenahkt, Ait Benhaddou and along the Dades Valley with Dades and Todra gorges, Kelaa Mgouna, Goulmima and to the sahara of Rissani and Merzouga, then up on to Fez via Midelt, Ziz valley , Azrou, Ifrane and Fes.

all the auberges around Merzouga organise trips into the dunes for either overnight stay or just sunrise or sunset by camel if you wish otherwise you will be in the desert - the main road which is bitumen runs down from Rissani to Taouz and the auberges are accessible and signposted off the bitumen road,

I have a number of good places to stay in my pages - viz Ait Benhaddou, Tafraoute, Taroudant, Aglou plage, Dades Gorge and up the top of Todra at Tamtatouche, Boulmane, Merzouga and Rissani, Zouala - up on the way to Er Rachidia - Moulay Idriss near Fes and Meknes, and you might like to go on from here to have a roam around our VT pages including mine - for your Merzouga visit Id recommend Riad Aicha - they are friends and will look after you like friends - though also Riad Mohayut is good, Dunes Dor....

I do have some good contacts that I can recommend or arrange if you wanted a driver guide to be company for you and take you around, or just rent a car - and I have had good results from Jawad with his cars in my Malta rental cars tip in Marrakech - and its fine to go on your own. but if you have a bit more money to splash out then it can be nice to have someone show you around, be with you for good places to eat and stay, get discounts on hotels and shopping and so on, and with a recommendation of mine then you do get a more reliable chance of having someone that will do a good job to do a good job with good results rather than someone who is just doing a job and taking a chance to get commission and whatever else - which you need to prepare for when in Morocco - hospitable kind charming people but many around that are also sharks or looking for any opportunity to make big bucks with little to show for it!

anyway have a roam around our pages and get back to me if theres anything else I and other VTers can help you with. all the best.

The Kasbah Mohayout is a wonderful accommodation in Hassi Labied Merzouga .The Hotel stuff are very friendly and kind . They organise camel tours around the Desert and they can pick up you from your arrival in Rissani or Erfoud .
Good Luck
