Overview

Kasbah Bab Ourika is a small boutique hotel looking over the Ourika Valley and the Atlas Mountains. Just 45 minutes from Marrakech with its bustling souks & Medina, and at the gateway to the Atlas Mountains, guests can get the best of both worlds, a city break or mountain getaway. In this peaceful spot overlooking the valley, guests can really get away from it all. Enjoy delicious Berber & international cuisine in the restaurant, relax by the outdoor pool and enjoy the sunsets before retiring to one of 15 luxurious rooms & suites.

Traditional Moroccan materials and modern luxuries have been used throughout the rooms and cosy living areas, and the hotel has been constructed from packed earth using Berber building techniques meaning air-conditioning is not needed due to the thick walls and good insulation. With an eye on their environmental impact, Kasbah Bab Ourika use solar panels to heat the water and for the under-floor heating and are soon to fit a bio-digester which will provide methane gas & compost for the hotel and the village below.

Guests can make the most of the peace and quiet of this boutique hotel, relaxing in the sun by the swimming pool, or take the 45 minute trip to Marrakech to explore the famous Djemaa el Fna square and shop in the souks.

Make the most of the Kasbah's expert guide, Mohammed, who offers a choice of 6 different treks with mules and muleteers to suit all levels of fitness. After a day exploring the hills or Marrakech, guests can relax in the hammam or with a massage before retiring to the many courtyards, lounges or the bar.
