About Kasbah Ellouze
The Kasbah Ellouze is an impressive-looking kasbah with a panoramic view from the terrace overlooking its own gardens (almond and olive trees and much more) and the Atlas Mountains beyond. The Ellouze is located a little north of Ait Ben Haddou (4kms) towards the end of the village of Tamedakhte just as the new road starts for Telouet. It is adjacent to the impressive ruin of another kasbah and is a particularly peaceful place to stay away from the crowds of Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou.
Accommodation: there are six large rooms and three suites decorated in a combination of traditional and modern styles; the Berber ceilings are impressive features. All rooms are ensuite and have air-conditioning and heating.
Facilities: Swimming pool, air-conditioned lounge and a small restaurant / breakfast room but plenty of space to dine on the terraces; games, library, stereo in lounge.
"Our English speaking driver Yousef was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the places we visited, and discussed the culture and country with us. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We did, unfortunately get sick yousef drove me to a pharmacy late at night and translated to ensure we got the right medication. Yousef was a thoroughly pleasant and professional young man who really added to our holiday experience."

"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!"
