ROOMS: Stayed there for 2 nights, and ended up being upgraded the first night and then again the second. We stayed in the main complex (not the tents) in a basic level suite. Both of our 2 rooms were absolutely stunning, impeccably clean, with amazing toiletry amenities (5 “hers” and 2 “his” bottles), fantastic shower and tub combo, living room area, wonderful down pillows and comforter, and classic Arabic decorations (attention to detail is what separates this hotel from every other place I’ve ever stayed). If you have the opportunity (and money) to stay in one of the 9 Berber “tents” that are separated from the main building of the resort, DO IT. We got a tour of them our last morning and words cannot describe how lovely the spaces were.

RESORT: The grounds are stunning. It’s nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in beautifully landscaped area complete with an animal farm (go in and meet Mohamad who has been working there 24 years and will let you pet and feed all the animals – camel, mules, goats, etc.), 2 astroturf tennis courts, gardens, indoor and outdoor pool, reflecting pool, library, movie room, multiple bars, rooftop terrace, poolside terrace, etc. For a resort that touts as many amenities as this one does, they maintain a very quaint feel. The staff is insanely helpful and friendly and will bend over backwards to make your stay even better. There are 120-something employees, 90% of them are Berbers and live in the surrounding villages, and almost all of them have been working there since the resort opened (far before Branson took over and renovated).

FOOD: Because the resort is fairly isolated (apart from a few surrounding Berber villages), your only choice is to eat at the resort. There’s an option to have 3-course fixed menu for lunch and dinner (breakfast is included in a standard package), but we would recommend skipping as it’s a bit overpriced and you won’t want that much food (there’s a great a la carte menu for lunch, for instance). We were there two nights and had our first dinner a la carte by the reflecting pool (covered in roses). Highlight was the scallops. The second night, we had a fixed price 6-course meal on the rooftop terrace (you should go there for sunset even if you’re not going to eat there). Highlights were: deconstructed beef wellington, white fish (not too buttery), and cheese panacotta. Note that the menu changes from a la carte to fixed from international to traditional Moroccan, etc. every night so you will not repeat a meal. Note: Free and unlimited items - beer, white, red, and rose wine in your mini fridge (the rose was our favorite and could easily hold its own in restaurants in the US), espresso maker in-room, snacks in living room area (best almonds EVER, biscuits, and dried apricots), and most importantly given the heat, both flat and sparkling water (in-room as well as whenever you sat down anywhere in the complex).

SURROUNDING AREA: The hotel offers guided hiking excursions of various lengths around neighboring Berber villages. Some include a packed picnic lunch, and others include a traditional meal in a Berber home. Caution against going on too long of a hike and missing out on time you could spend at the infinity pool. My boyfriend and I (who are both very active) ended up opting out of the guided tours and took a 6.5km hike up and around the mountain closest to the resort. It took 1.5 hours (though the hotel said it would take 2.5) and the hotel provided us with water bottles and direction (although none was needed as it’s a national park and very clearly marked). We had the opportunity to see some wild Kashmir goats as well as stunning panoramic views of the valley.

Truly idyllic. This hotel is so tranquil, the staff so helpful and really does indulge you. We took our 12 year old and 15 year and stayed in the Master Suite. Fearful that it maybe too quiet we were pleasantly surprised at the amount to do and did not miss the fact that there were no tv's in the room. We've been asked to return. The food was superb and the fact that you eat in different locations around the hotel made dining in the evening a wonderful experience. Only criticism was the breakfast weren't great but that was the only grumble.

Stayed: August 2014

Taking a bumpy cab ride from the airport, to an oasis in the middle of a dessert was no mirage. It was spectacular. Pulling up, we were immediately escorted inside to an exquisite retreat within.
Beautifully appointed rooms in the Moroccan style, with service at your fingertips for whatever one needs at any time. Owned now by Sir Richard Branson, it is a retreat to hard to beat.

Room Tip: select one overlooking the pool or the wading pool filled with rose petals

The most beautifully appointed and run hotel that we have ever stayed in. I cannot hand on heart find anything that was not perfect. So hard to put into words how this place makes you feel but it is on of the very few hotels that I have a yearning to return to. Our three children were made very welcome by the exceptional staff. We spent three glorious days in this oasis of calm.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very individual and all spectacularly furnished but if appropriate the Berber tents are sublime.

Very little left to say that hasn't been said before.......expensive but so worth it!

A sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life. Understated luxury and yet the ambience is so homely and welcoming. The staff are faultless and their sole aim is to make your stay the best it can be.

We had intended to visit Marrakech but simply did not want to leave our beautiful surroundings. Leave your troubles at the main gate and just let the calm and tranquility wash over you. Just need to keep this "hidden gem" a secret?
