luxury and style on the edge of the desert
A nice hotel at a reasonable price to know about if you are looking for luxury on the way to the desert....I would recommend rather staying right in next to the dunes around Merzouga - and if you are looking for a place that you might potentially return to or maintain connections with the people that run an establishment this establishment is not the people connections that I would recommend
but....A Very nice hotel with more luxury - 4 poster beds, Queen suite with extra bedroom, air conditioning, swimming pool. Decor with traditional Moroccan arts and crafts, bedrooms more classic eg 4 poster bed and lace curtains
Run by Italian-Moroccan couple, only a few minutes from Rissani township, 4x4 excursions and nights out in the desert can be organised from here.
Unique Quality: newer hotel than many others around - more upmarket decor and comforts with laidback atmosphere - pool - a place with character and interesting Moroccan colours and designs
Directions: heading into Rissani from Erfoud direction hotel is on right hand side just before the bridge into Rissani
Rissani, new kasbah north of town
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.
Treat yourself! - Kasbah Ennasra
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.
Directions: on the right hand side of the main road just before crossing the bridge into Risanni when travelling from the north ie Erfoud
