French-Swiss designer Romain Michel-Menier opened the Berber Lodge between the Atlas Mountains and the Agafay Desert in Morocco. He was inspired by the local culture and architectural traditions of the region. The hotel complex resembles a Moroccan village, however, for greater comfort, guests here are provided with enlarged windows and openings. Antique kilims (handmade carpets), Moroccan tea trays and banquets are mixed with furniture from the middle of the last century, found in flea markets in Morocco and Paris. In the rooms, guests can enjoy a fireplace, a tea ceremony surrounded by rattan furniture, and while away the nights under a magic canopy. The gardens around the hotel are the work of a Parisian landscape designer who planted agave, pistachio, tall grasses, cacti and olive trees in the courtyard. Amazing immersion in the local culture with absolute comfort!
