Ecolodge Bedrooms

Our bedrooms are surrounded by the beauty of our gardens and beautiful inside. They are spacious – about 25 square metres.

You can choose rooms set up for couples, friends, families or those with disabilities.

Ambiance

Enjoy the colour scheme and simple beauty of your room and its furniture. There are exquisite Moroccan handcrafted arches, alcoves, lanterns, mirrors, ceramics, leather goods, bedspreads, rugs and more, most of which are made locally by artisans we know.

If you need to work you can use our excellent Wifi and the desk and chair with a reading lamp and a USB socket. 

Save the Planet in Comfort !

Each room has been cleverly designed to be really warm in winter and cool in summer thanks to thick earth walls, cross ventilation via a solar chimney, ceiling and floor level insulation, south-facing double glass doors and windows with insulating wooden shutters and wide eaves to provide shade when the sun is high in the sky. The result is that even in mid-winter room temperatures are about 22 degrees centigrade and humidity levels are around a healthy 35%. 

Relaxing Enjoy relaxing on a settee with a coffee table opposite the long glass double doors or on your south-facing terrace, both overlooking your 6 metre deep garden.

Storage Using the bench for suitcases, unload your belongings into a spacious wardrobe with hanging area and shelving which also has a safe for small valuables and extra bedding.

Bathrooms are all en-suite with a separate toilet, lever-operated mixer taps, water-saving but powerful shower heads, hot water supplied from a neatly hidden solar panel*, an inset washbasin set into marble worktop with shelving beneath and ventilation via a solar chimney. 

* We have a gas back up system for our hammam which ensures you always have access to hot water if the sun does not heat the solar water enough. There is a 150 litre panel for each pair of rooms which provides peak hot water before sunset.

 

Well located and easy to find 

 

All bedrooms are easy to find and conveniently located between the quiet zone near the pool and the communal rooms (dining, activity, library, reception) which are near the main courtyard . We provide you with an easy to follow map of the site to orientate you on arrival.

Mattresses to Suit You

All mattresses are high quality. Moroccan mattresses tend to be firm so we have had toppers made. We are lucky that there is a local man who used to work in a mattress factory! Rest assured that we can turn your mattress if it does not suit you – there is a hard and soft side.

Guilt free Showers!

Whenever you have a shower or wash your hands, you know the grey water will go to water our plants. And it will be cleaned by the gravel system before it enters our 9 cubic metre underground storage tank. Then the water feeds many other food plants including apricot, guava, grapes, globe artichokes and many other vegetables and herbs.

Flexibility for Sleeping and Sharing

All rooms can accommodate 2 people, some 3 or 4: several have king size beds (160 cms wide); one room has double bed (140 cms), many have 2 single beds (most 90 cms wide; some 80 cms wide. The latter are made to be converted into king size beds). And several rooms have a bed settee suitable for a child and one room has 2 of these (70 cms wide). Cot(s) available on request.

Single Occupancy

We make a surcharge for rooms occupied by one person. Our charges are less than in many establishments in Morocco; others tend to charge per room so the bill for B&B for one person is the same as two persons sharing the room.

Family Suites 

Our 2 suites with interconnecting bathrooms (1 bathroom for each bedroom) are:

The C Suite: Caper (2 single beds) and Carob (160 cms wide double adapts to 2 x 80 cms wide beds + option of cot). Near the pool and spa.

The O Suite: Olive (160 cms wide double + bed settee or cot) & Orange (2 single beds + bed settee). Near meeting rooms, guests’ kitchen and roof terrace.

Facilities for Disabled Guests

One of our bedrooms, Papaya, is adapted for disabled guests. Hence it has a wide entrance and double bathroom doors, an open plan bathroom with low level wash basin, a drop-down shower seat, several grab rails that can be fitted at desired positions and a detachable toilet seat heightener. 

In addition Papaya is located close to all the communal facilities including the library and the office.

There is also a ramp in the door of the dining room from where you can access both the kitchen and activity room without a step to climb.

Room Names 

We love plants and what they have to offer us. Hence our 14 bedrooms are named after some of the useful trees, tree-derived products or shrubs grown in our lovingly tended gardens. And we have laminated cards explaining fascinating facts about the plants linked to the rooms.

12 Rooms are in pairs beginning with the same letter in alphabetical order to make them easy to find. There are 2 rooms that are in pairs which begin with unique letters, Loquat & Quince, the tutors’ and staff rooms.

The pairs of names are: Almond and Argan; Caper and Carob; Fig & Frankincense; Henna & Hibiscus; Olive & Orange; Papaya & Pomegranate. The final 2 rooms, Loquat and Quince are unique rooms with a different layout and position.
