We stayed in KBH for two nights although we wish it had been more. Whilst we were nervous on the drive up, arriving at KBH and being given a tour of the grounds quickly made us realize what a true gem we had found. The rooms are spectacular, the food devine, the staff incredibly helpful and the atmosphere incredibly relaxing.
- Also Known As:
- Kasbah Bab Ourika Hotel
- Kasbah Bab Ourika Hotel Ourika
- 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
