Our stay here was totally faultless. I cannot remember staying somewhere and loving it more than here, the location is stunning, and the charming staff, expertly lead by the marvellous Amanda made our stay my most memorable part of our trip. The room was superb, looking over the incredible valleys, complimented by a large comfortable bed and luxurious bathroom did not do the photos justice, I could not believe the value for money the entire trip offered. The food and delicious local wine went way beyond my expectations, the "Berber omellete" at breakfast (also complimented by stunning scenery!) was fantastic. Amanda went beyond the call of duty in every sense to make our trip enjoyable, and I can't thank her enough for making our stay here my favourite holiday to date.
- 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
