To travel in an other way
in an Eco-responsible accommodation
"There are places in the world where dreaming, moving and stopping becomes an evidence, where nature invites us to abandonment, and to a return to the original sources"
We invite you to experience these emotional moments.
Sylvie & Nasser
Our ecological awareness and our concern for the preservation of local heritage have led us since the beginning of our activity to actively engage in the path of Sustainable and Responsible Tourism. Everything has been thought out and designed for perfect harmony with the natural environment and its protection.
Azul means " Peace " in the Berber language. "La Kasbah of Peace" is what defines this unique place in a magical setting in total immersion in nature. A Garden of Eden for Slow Travel travelers in search of soothing resources in an authentic, healthy and protected environment and in search of a friendly and family atmosphere.
The authenticity of a One Thousand & One Nights Kasbah in an intimate and warm setting
In harmony with the surrounding nature, the Kasbah Azul was built with natural bioclimatic materials and made by local artisans in the pure tradition of ancestral techniques from southern Morocco. The adobe earth bricks made on site and dried in the sun were laid in double thickness to ensure better insulation.
All dressed in terracotta floors, walls in clay &lime, Tadelakt, ceilings in reeds, this elegant Kasbah offers you a warm atmosphere in a refined and personalized decor all Ethno-Chic where tradition meets the spirit of innovation.
The perspectives, shapes, softness and colours of the natural interior coatings have been carefully thought to reveal with elegance the charm of this majestic Berber architecture. Surrounded by a large garden you will have access from the kasbah to multiple intimate places and different points of view.
A NATURAL KASBAH
A LUSH & PROTECTED GARDEN
The one-hectare private oasis of the Kasbah Azul Ecolodge makes it a unique and privileged place to spend a stay in fullness and to relax fully.
This "jungle" oasian of ancient palm trees present at our arrival has been embellished over time by the planting of a multitude of varieties of plants and trees of all kinds. A oasis of dream where some nights the sweet perfume of jasmine, henna and orange blossom enchants the beauty of the starry sky that is so unique at the gates of the desert area !
To perfect the beauty of the place, you can enjoy a large pool of 13.5 x 6 (heated from March to October) where you can relax in the sun or in the shade of palm trees, oleanders and clementine trees.
Pool side, vegetable garden side or perched with a panoramic view, many outdoor spaces are available to you to enjoy intimate moments.
According with the ecological ethics of the Kasbah, the garden and the vegetable garden are managed in permaculture and enriched with natural fertilizers derived from animal manure or composting of food waste.
The preservation of water is at its maximum in the supply of the domain by a general drip system and the treatment by oxygenation of the wastewater recovered for the watering of trees and flowers.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND HUMAN ETHICS
Located in a rich natural ecosystem in the gardens of the palm grove, the Kasbah Azul Ecolodge works and participates in the preservation of endemic flora and fauna while favoring the use of local products. In the framework of a Solidarity & Equitable Tourism, we employ local people and involve the local population in our activities.
Aware that ecology and the environment are a priority for the future of the planet, we have worked over time to put in place within our establishment the necessary means to reduce our polluting impact and we are actively engaged in the ethics of a Sustainable Tourism .
In this context, the Kasbah Azul has been certified as an Ecoresponsable Green Key establishment since 2017, the most represented label in the world and supported by the United Nations program for the environment & in Morocco by the Mohamed VI Foundation for the Environment. Kasbah Azul was also attested by Green Awards in 2017.
The establishment is supplied 100% by solar panels for electricity and hot water. As the economy of water is a priority in our region, the area is watered as a whole by a drip system and the installation of a mini-pit for the purification of wastewater treated by oxygenation and phyto purification allows us to recover 98% of the waste water for watering the garden: A first in our region being the only establishment to have this system.
Wastes are sorted and food waste is composted for use of garden & vegetable garden. Household products are homemade with ecological products.
