On the outskirts of the capital city Nouakchott, nestled in the dunes of Toujounin, a secure and quiet hide-away with privacy in an original but luxurious Mauritanian setting.

Due to traditional oasis lifestyle: Only non-smokers and non-drinkers.

The space

RELAX. Whatever you really need, will come to you at the right time.

Hidden within a walled and shady palm grove featuring 5 swimming-pools. 24h Doorman. Surrounded by gardens, shady verandas, colonades and arched patios. Marble floors and granite walkways, for barefoot walking, tiled and thatched outdoor kitchen fully equipped. Helpful staff to your personal attention. Laundry and errands, even sophisticated research carried out on your behalf.

Traditional hospitality IN AN ADOBE SETTING. Almost all year around, rooms are cool thanks to adobe building and the dominant micro-climate.
From Aug. to Oct. a.c may be needed (extra cost).

Our art of brewing green tea with the herbs of our garden, Mint, Spearmint, Mountain thyme, Sweet Basil and others will award you with an unforgettable culinary experience.

Food is traditionally served once a day, and on request (extra cost). We feature fresh Thai dishes like Tom Ka Gai and vegetarian or Afhgani style bulgur and rice plates. PLEASE, MAKE YOUR WISHES KNOWN IN ADVANCE.

You may also prepare your own food in our fully equipped kitchen. Bedding is comfortably traditional, American size on request.

Our experienced nannies (EXTRA COST) - have natural love and gift for children, your child/ren will feel adopted right away..

- You are our guest. This garden is in the dunes and very quiet. A real hide-away! Still, it is easy to find! Along Aziz Blvd. barbeque at night in the dunes littered with khaimas (tents) and small lanterns indicating that guests are welcome. We are near the Toujounine Bird Sancutary where you can visit traditional Sahara fauna (after 6pm)

Other things to note

Children have our special attention, and nannies, young or elder, are at your request. Their love and affection will open a new chapter in your child's discovery of life. Many could hardly be separated when farewell comes, all too quickly.

Budget travellers have the option of staying on our lofty terrasse at the crown of the palm trees in tents, called khaima. In order to benefit you book the regular 2 nights and have the remaining stay for a pittance, you may even stay for free if you have specific maintanance skills and we are in need of it (painting, welding, plumbing, electric, etc.)

Do not come in gaunty clothing, dress conservatively, best if you can adopt the unique customs of the country!
