The kasbah Ennasra is a newly built kasbah in traditional style. In the innercourt there is a swimmingpool, a berber tent and a snackbar. The kasbah has also a restaurant and a tea room. The rooms have the entrance at a lovely inner garden and every room has its own patio.
The whole place is nicily decorated with all kind of local and traditional objects.
At arrival in the hotel we had a lovely welcome tea with snacks. It was winter, but in the sun the temperature was high enough to sit outdoors, so we enjoyed the tea at in the innercourt. In the evening it was too cold to sit outside, so we moved to the tearoom with heating.
In the lobby is a pc with free internet acces. The hotel organises 4WD excursions and cameltrips into the desert. We booked a 4WD trip in the hotel and visited the black desert before heading to the Erg Chebbi dunes.
Directions: The Ennasra Kasbah is just north of the junction of the N13 from Erfoud and the N12 from Zagora, a few km's north of Rissani.
Newly built auberge built in traditional mud brick style but upmarket with mod cons and loads of character and style. Very comfortable with airconditioning, ensuite and 4-poster beds.
Also the Queens suite with connecting rooms, great if you want to splash out with your kids or group of friends. Pleasant staff and hotel is only 1 km from Risanni.
Would recommend it especially in summer for time out from the summer heat with its pool and good airconditioning. and nice experience of upmarket with character.
Excellent breakfast and place to have it in - at tables out around the pool or undercover in a salon furnished in traditional Moroccan style decor.
haggled and got lower price than similar quality hotels such as Hotel Asmaa nearby.
Excursions can be arranged to take you out from here to the desert of the Sahara about half an hour away - trips out to catch the colours of the dunes changing at sunset, or for an early morning visit for sunrise, or stay overnight in Ennasra's own bivouac camp in the desert at either their standard camp or more private luxury level camp, or have a day or half day 4x4 driving trip visiting areas further out into the desert - past the black hamada, to oases, see the abandoned cobalt mine and of course the sandy desert all the while seeing families that eke their existence out here, and the circuit that takes you right around the Erg Chebbi and dunes to Taouz and the Gnawa music association at Khamlia.
Unique Quality: loads of character with traditional furnishings, and romantic very comfortable 4 poster beds lace curtains etc. Pool and airconditioning.
