About Kasbah Azul
The Kasbah Azul is a wonderful place, it is located in the village of Aslim just a short drive from from the centre of Agdz. The huge site is dominated by the impressive kasbah style building of the hotel itself, set amongst some mature palm trees. An ideal oasis and overnight stop on anyone's circuit of the south. Once you are parked inside the main entrance gate (do not park in the donkey's space!) there is a very pleasant walk through the verdant garden up to the kasbah, inside there are welcoming lounges (used for dining in the colder winter evenings) and then the staircase to the rooms, located around the central opening.
This hotel is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.
Accommodation: All rooms at the Azul are of a high quality and quite spacious, they are decorated in bright but traditional colours and all are slightly different in style. Three double rooms, one twin room; two suites (one with an extra bed). All rooms are ensuite and have heating and a/c. Suite Alham (double) and room Hana (twin) can be interconnected as a family suite.
Facilities: A large swimming pool and sun terrace, pleasant and peaceful garden, various lounges, library, wifi access, stereo in lounge, high chairs, cots and games available.
"We have just got back from our fabulous holiday in Morocco. Thank you very much, everything was perfect. Riad Kniza was luxurious and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite (Johara). It was lovely to meet the owner. We had another nice meal. The staff in all the hotels were really helpful and friendly. Everyone spoke English although, almost without exception, they were relieved when they realised we spoke French."

"Special mention for our final stay in Marrakech (not enough room on the form!!) at Riad Kniza. We have never stayed anywhere that we have been more welcome. Truly felt like our home and the staff were WONDERFUL! Genuinely sorry to leave and will definitely be back, Location excellent, service and food exemplary, and very good value for money. A little haven in the lunacy of this amazing city. Also Kasbah Ellouze - stunning location and brilliant staff. Felt very authentic. Landscape is dramatic and hugely photogenic. Desert trip amazing - we had the camp to ourselves so it felt very personal. Would have perhaps liked to stay an extra night as the dunes are quite breathtaking. Organisation completely hassle-free. Car hire (and Neureddine, the rep) very helpful. Driving pretty much without hitch apart from one bandit incident down south (we had a heads up from your info, so managed to avoid!!) Roads excellent, especially over the Atlas. A really fantastic trip, thank you"

"Thank you for our travel documents and for your great organisation. We are now really looking forward to the holiday. I was pleased to see that we have a free additional driver with the car as we both drive and it might give my husband a break if he needs it. It is details like this which make all the difference!"

"We have just got back from our trip. We had a wonderful time and thank you for all your organisation and sugegstions of places to stay - they were excellent and we especially liked the Kasbah Azul. We had an extremely nice drive called Omar and would thoroughly recommend him to other people who want someone to ferry them around - not only did he speak good English but he was also very knowledeable and took us to see some interesting places en route to the desert and back. Our next trip will be to Fez and Essaouira so we will be in touch."

"Thank you for organising a fantastic holiday for us. The hotels were all good and the desert excursion was something to remember (despite lack of sunrise and sunset - cloudy). We have to thank our driver Jamal who really made our holiday for us. He took us to all sorts of places that we would never have visited and was keen to show us everything about Moroccan culture. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he ensured our comfort at all time for example careful driving, stopping at clean western style toilets, providing bottled water and good coffee stops. We would thoroughly recommend him to everybody."
