Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2017

This is a private Kasbah located in a large oasis in Skoura. The rooms are very nice and are all different. Each meal is served in a different location with different silver and china so you are always experiencing something new. We were taken on a walking tour of the oasis including visiting some of the local craftsman. It is a very unique place like we have never been. We were hesitant about going since it is far south but was well worth it. You can fly from either Casablanca or Marrakesh to Ourtzazate and the resort will pick you up or take you to the airport. We did not realize that Air Maroc does not fly there on Tuesday or Wednesday so plan you rip when you can fly.
