Palais des Dunes

A family story along the Merzouga sand dunes

Palais des Dunes was  founded by the Bouchedor family. Bouchedor were nomads who settled in Merzouga. They started with a few camels, offering camel tours in the dunes, later on a small inn with six bedrooms and a restaurant. The inn grew and became a hotel, with a swimming pool, a garden, a place for campers, caravans and camping-cars. The Bouchedor also mounted their own bivouacs… Today, the family welcomes you at home, and helps you discovering Merzouga’s beauty.

The hotel is reflected in the still blue water of the swimming pool.

Tables made of iron-wrought and Moroccan ceramic tiles, and palm trees surround a swimming pool that does not need any heating !

Room in the hotel or camp site ?

You can choose, either to spend the night at the hotel in a large bedroom with private bathroom and air-conditioning, and have your breakfast at the swimming-pool, or to stay in our camp site in the dunes of Merzouga, under the stars. Depending of the bivouac, you shall reach it by foot, or after a one-to-two hours camel ride. In both camp sites you’ll get a Moroccan dinner, enjoy sunset and sunrise, a warm tea and breakfast, and the possibility of a shower, when you’re back in the inn.
