I would rate this evening with a billion stars since that's how many we saw. Our night at this upscale tent was an extraordinary experience and one that will stay in our memories forever. The tent is high-end and only has three sleeping rooms (tents). We arrived by camel and found that we were the only guests that night so... More

How can you review an experience like this? We were picked up from the Xaluca Kasbah in the late afternoon (it is too hot earlier) and driven into the Sahara - as simple as that. After about half an hour of driving over a desert landscape we were met by a team of Berbers with their camels. We were introduced... More

Our camel guide was a wonderful character and so considerate particularly of my mother (about 70 years). He also took some great photos - someone had taught him well and means we got some above average photos of the experience which is great for our memories and story telling. To the accommodation - again excellent, attentive service. A little bit... More

Even though that many people find the deluxe tents not very deluxe, my family and I were happily surprised. If you're expecting I 5 star hotel, you are sure to be disappointed, but considering that you are in the middle of the desert, it is more than comfortable. We had a whole tent camp just for ourselves. The room was... More

Having had multiple experiences under canvas in Tanzania, we knew enough to choose the "luxe" option, and knew in advance that what Morocco seems to mean by a "luxe" tent bears little resemblance to what is meant by the same term in most safari countries. But that was okay -- we planned for it to be very basic and a... More

A group of us recently stayed in what we thought would be luxury tents. The shower was a hose that worked once out of four showers. The toilet was a flush one but wasn't attached to the ground evenly so sewage leaked out into the room and it was hard to sleep for the stench some of the group had... More

We rode our motorbike to the middle of the desert to find this amazing place. You can sleep in haimas and enjoy the dunes while having proper services. Enjoy the New moon nights by looking AT the starred sky.

After staying in a Luxury Tent in an Oberoi Hotel in Rathambore, India, my expectations were pretty high... We had booked a "Royal Tent", which wasn't too royal. The tent is dark, and very basic, toilet and shower only have a curtain so there is absolutely no privacy. We asked to be changed to a room at the hotel instead.

We spent one night, here after spending the day traveling from Fes. Looking back at the photos shared on Trip Advisor they are a little miss leading. Be sure to inquire about the accommodations. The photos that are posted are of the Luxe tents which I understand cost a great deal more than the "regular" tents. The reviews are accurate.... More
