Welcome to our new established family run boutique hotel. Experience comfort, relaxation and culture in this heart warming and friendly accommodation. Our small hotel is located on the edge of the stunning Sahara Desert with breathtaking views of Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes.
Indulge in a rich and unforgettable atmosphere of Berber traditions and Gnaoua music. After exploring the Desert and surroundings, relax on the roof terrace with a freshly brewed coffee or refreshment and gaze at the stars.
Khamlia Desert Hotel is a fabulous luxurious retreat in the Sahara Desert. It comprises of beautiful indoor and outdoor living and relaxation areas as well as 4 sumptuous bedrooms with private bathrooms. The Hotel is an eclectic mix of european comfort and authentic berber craftsmanship and decor.
Our house is made in the traditional way of compacting special local sand from the river and building big blocks in situ. Wooden doors and windows made by local crafts men in Rissani and decorative bamboo roofs made with the help of the whole village!
Our bedrooms are all ensuite with European toilets, hot/cold showers and beautiful locally crafted fossil sinks. The ensuite showers are fed by solar powered hot water.
A plentiful delicious breakfast is included in the accommodation price. Packed lunches/hot lunches and dinners can all be arranged if requested. Special Berber made pizza can also be organised and prepared in the dunes at different times of the day or night depending on Desert trips and travel arrangements. A two minute walk across the road brings us to the golden sand dunes where guests can lie in private looking up at the stars as they multiply and twinkle in the millions, or be entertained around a fire by our local Gnaoua musicians playing their traditional instruments and African Dejembes. A truly magical experience.
Guests have access to their own room, the roof terrace, the sitting/dining room, the Indoor relaxing area and the outdoor relaxing area. See photos.
The roof terrace offers wonderful views of the village and the Dunes. We use it to serve breakfast and snacks. Guest can sunbath or sleep under the stars when the temperature allows on the terrace. It is a totally private terrace with a walled perimeter and is accessed from the interior of the hotel.
Our indoor relaxing area is perfects for chatting, snoozing, reading or writing. It is a large airy space offering shade from the Desert sun but also allows the warm desert breeze to flow through.
We also have a roofed outdoor space which is walled on 3 sides but also allows a feeling of 'being outside' while being protected from the sun and wind. If you fancy a slightly less private space and more interaction with the villagers and children, this is the place for you.
Sitting room/Dining room
This formal space has a very comfy large leather sofa and arm chair. There is a collection of over 150 dvds to choose from and a large library of english books. There is also a variety of jigsaws, crossword books, dominoes, board games, card games, children trains sets and colouring books etc to relax and unwind after a day in the Desert.
This is also where our dining table and chairs are to serve up to 8 people formally. We have lots of other dining areas but this is the formal European dining setting.
We prefer not to allow guest use the kitchen unless it is pre-arranged or is for a cookery lesson.

Hi from both of us. I'm Abdoul, a Berber Gnaoua, native of Khamlia, Morocco and I'm Suzanne, Irish, and in love with the Desert. We married in 2010. After four years of living in beautiful Edinburgh we both decided to move to Khamlia and the Desert. Abdoul missed his family and friends and his Mum's wonderful home cooking. We both missed all the fantastic aromas and beautiful sights of Morocco and especially our wonderful Gnaoua Music. I, Suzanne was captivated by the beauty of Khamlia and it's surrounds and quit my IT job and the corporate world to live in the tranquility and warmth of the Desert.
A warm welcome awaits in our modern, traditionally styled, Berber Desert hotel which we designed and built ourselves since 2014. We will ensure you have an unforgettable, enjoyable and comfortable stay with us in Khamlia often referred to as 'Heaven on Earth'.
