The Kasbah

Kasbah bab Ourika stands in the exceptionally beautiful landscape of the Atlas Mountains, just 40 minutes from Marrakech International Airport. On a hilltop, at the apex of the Ourika valley, it looks down to the river, green fields and groves of olives, oranges and lemons and up to the dazzling snowy mountain peaks.

With 360 degree panoramic views, Kasbah bab Ourika receives warm sunlight all day, ending in spectacular sunsets. Each room is uniquely decorated with traditional Moroccan interiors, where you can relax and unwind on a private terrace or by the swimming pool hidden in the depths of the garden.

The team at Kasbah bab Ourika are incredibly friendly and will make you feel as though you’ve known them for years. It is a peaceful setting, away from the hustle of the Western World, and whilst families are very much welcomed, it’s worth noting, it is a mature environment.

Food & Drink

The food at the Kasbah is nothing short of delicious. For breakfast, you can enjoy pancakes with honey, fresh fruit, yoghurts, homemade cakes, eggs and freshly squeezed juice.  For lunch and dinner, there is a range of options including traditional Berber recipes and European dishes. A highlight was the incredible BBQ spread on the terrace, with homemade burgers, tender meat skewers, colourful salads and delicious homemade desserts.

The gardens are a fantastic place to enjoy a sundowner, with the Kasbah’s delicious cocktail menu, or for the chillier evenings, you may wish to enjoy a glass of red around the fire.

Eco-friendly

Kasbah bab Ourika prides itself on its sustainable approach. Having been built using traditional Berber techniques of rammed earth, the thick walls help to insulate the building along with fitted solar panels. The chef uses locally sourced ingredients, both from the Kasbah's gardens and local villages, to curate a seasonal menu.

Who's it for?

Whilst a family-friendly environment, it's worth noting it's a more mature setting, also appealing to honeymooners and couples. However, there's plenty to keep the kids entertained. In addition to the pool, there is table tennis, garden games, and the activities mentioned below...

Activities

If you’re looking to get out and about and explore, there are plenty of activities to discover in and around the Kasbah. The first worth mentioning is the beautiful Beldi spa, located in the Kasbah’s gardens - a quaint space to enjoy a selection of well-being treatments from massages to a Hammam (traditional steam bath), manicures and more.

Outside the Kasbah, you can uncover the beauty of the surrounding villages, either on foot or trekking by camel. Find yourself journeying through the valley, learning about local Berber life, enjoying a picnic in the mountain forest and descending down into the valley, exploring the national parks, waterfalls, salt flats, local markets and more.
