Kasbah Igoudar is the kind of place that takes you away from the craziness in Marrakesh. It is 30 minutes away, but the location is perfect if you want to be on the Atlas experiencing solitude and peace in a very relaxing and safe environment with pristine views of the sunset and pleasant mornings by the pool listening to the sounds of nature. The rooms are a good size with a nice décor and comfortable beds. The only electronics in the room is the TV.
The bathroom is a nice size but the hot water at times could be an inconvenience if you are in a rush or visiting in September when it’s cold in the mornings. It’s better to advise reception the night before so the staff has time to turn on the water heater. Please keep in mind that these are very small glitches compared to what you experience on a personal level at this place.
At the time we went, the spa wasn’t finished since this is a brand new place so we decided to take a spa day at Kasbah Tamadot. I will absolutely recommend doing this, instead of a tour on the Atlas, since the road is the same route.
Their food is organic, good and simple, prepared by the ladies that live in the village of Amizmiz. The Kasbah provides you with transportation if needed. We got Abdout, the best taxi driver. He took us to the bazaar and was the perfect guide to find exactly the stores we needed for the exact items we were looking for in just two hours.
We want to thank Jasine, Mounir, and Avdul for making the best of our stay and the ladies in the kitchen Khadija, Aarika and Abderazzak for their lovely meals!
One more tip -- you don’t need a guide to the Ouzod waterfalls just hire a car to take you.
Have fun Morocco, it’s a beautiful country and its people are even more beautiful!
