Our nine day stay was a slice of heaven! The approach to the Kasbah is awesome coming up the steep drive, and then the massive entrance! The grounds are lovingly kept and watered and the vegetable gardens are a thing of wonder. The views are breathtaking in all directions. The service is without equal in all of our travels. Even if you are just in the area of Marakesh you MUST eat here, the presentation and quality of the meals is 5 star. Don't forget the Hammam.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bab Ourika perches majestically on a hilltop at the apex of the Ourika Valley, guarding the gateway to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains – yet it is only 45 minutes from Marrakech’s International airport. With 360 degree panoramic views, this innovative new hotel receives warm sunlight all day, ending in spectacular sunsets. From its unique eyrie-like position it offers a birds eye view of the Atlas, of traditional Berber villages and of the lush river valley below. The Kasbah is one of the most eco-friendly hotels in Morocco; constructed principally from rammed earth, the traditional Berber building technique, it seems almost to have grown out of the rocks beneath. The thick walls provide such good insulation that air-conditioning is unnecessary. Solar panels provide hot water for the hotel and and the underfloor heating in the dining and bar area. Soon a biodigester will provide electricity and compost not only for the hotel but also for the village below. ... more less
