We stayed at this wonderful establishment for five nights recently.
It is comfortable and friendly. There is an extensive garden to wander in and a wonderful vegetable area where vegetables are grown and used in the restaurant. The food is very good with plenty of choice. Our room had a log fire that was lit for us in the late afternoon & evening when the temperature drops significantly. There are plenty of places to sit both inside and outside, including a swimming pool area. The ambiance of the place is relaxing and friendly and the views over the surrounding area are just beautiful.
- 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
