This is the must go boutique hotel in Zagora. We arrived exhausted from an eight hour drive from Casablanca. The owner was there with his family, and made us feel very welcome. The rooms are all decorated with a theme of a writer who has written about Morocco. We saw the St Exupery suite which was really cool decorated with... More

When we arrived hot and tired after our day-long drive from Marrakech, we had trouble adjusting to the dramatic change of pace at this quiet Zagora retreat. Like other commentators here, we were disappointed to find no feed for our internet addiction, and to learn that our second night in the lodge's luxury desert camp would be much shorter than...

A new hotel which is a great base to get to the Desert south of Zagora. Food was some of the best we had on our trip to morroco. Rooms are spacious. Pool is lovely. Highly recommend borrowing one of the bikes and exploring the oasis area behind the hotel. Dining area is stunning, spent a lovely evening in the... More

After the Sahara desert this quaint 7 room hotel with it's off the road quiet, wonderful large walled garden patio with many trees and a beautiful pool was too good to leave. Dinner and breakfast were superb...they have someone very good in the kitchen. Doud was exceptional in reception. Siam was lovely serving breakfast and dinner. The only downside and... More

We were very impressed on arriving at this lodge, having tried several dusty tracks before we hit on the right one. It was not only a convenient place to stay en route from Skoura to the desert, but it was a comfortable retreat where we had a very pleasant rest between two days of driving. All areas were well designed... More

We stayed for two nights at the lodge, and for one night at the desert camp. Everything about the lodge is elegant and lovely--the pool, our room, the library. The food was delicious, too--pastries and pancakes for breakfast, salads and tagines for dinner. One night the cook even made couscous by hand out of corn meal, since my daughter and... More

We stayed in the St.Exupery room at the lodge. It was a delightful experience-even in the middle of winter. The room was light and spacious-a sitting area for 2, big marble bathroom and a good heating system. The entire lodge was beautifully appointed-it felt like an Architectural Digest inn. The architecture is modern with clean lines, but also felt traditional... More

I stayed in the Azalai Desert Camp as part of a package tour. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the tent was very comfortable and spacious. The food was great, both dinner and breakfast were amazing. The camp itself was stunning, set among the dunes, with no other camps in sight (I had the added bonus of being the... More

We stayed at Azalai Desert Lodge over the new year for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it! It was a perfect retreat after travelling for a couple days by 4X4 and spending a night in the desert. It’s owned and run by a Moroccan couple and they were such kind and impeccable hosts. As we speak neither Arabic nor... More

We just stayed at the hotel for one night after a camping night in the dessert which we didn't enjoy at all! So the hotel looks like heaven to us. It truly is! Although it is smaller than I previously expected, it is very cozy, clean and well decorated. I especially love the food made by the lady. You can... More
