We enjoyed our stay at the Kasbah Bab Ourika. The highlights included the amazing views from the hotel property, the beautiful vegetable gardens, and the beautiful room. You can walk out of the hotel and two seconds away is a great trail that takes you on a scenic and relatively flat walk. The hotel is secluded but close enough to Marrakesh and other places that you could easily stay here for a week and do lots of nice day trips. The only thing we didn't like were the very small meal portions and the food was OK but not terrific. Also, although the staff were very kind, not many of them were able to speak well in English so it was difficult to communicate. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay.
- 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
