Kasbah Bab Ourika in morocco

The Atlas Mountains in Morocco are simply breathtaking. Massive snow-capped peaks dominate lush green meadows with olive, lemon, and orange trees. As a bonus, Marrakech is just a short distance away. You can have both the culture overload of a city full of sights and sounds and the peace and serenity of a foreign land. There are many things to do here at the Kasbah Bab Ourika.

360-degree panoramic view: It goes from the river at the top of the mountains to the trees valley below. The location is ideal for long sunny days and beautiful sunsets.

The buildings blend seamlessly into the landscape and integrate their surroundings as if they had always been there. You will find extensive gardens with two courtyards and plenty of sunny spots to relax and enjoy the scenery. Particular attention gives to respecting this fragile nature; solar panels, a water recycling system, and an ingenious bio-digester are integral to the address’s equipment.

The interior decor gives pride of place to earthy tones and local influences as a reminder that you are here in Morocco.

Each of the 26 rooms is unique and has a terrace where you can enjoy beautiful and relaxing views. 

15 rooms are in the main building, and 12 more are in the gardens. I prefer those with a private swimming pool; there are only two!



Gourmets will appreciate the hotel restaurant’s comforting and contemporary Moroccan cuisine—the seasonal menu made with fresh, organic ingredients sourced from local markets and their vegetable gardens. There is also a bar, a lounge with a fireplace for cooler evenings, and a selection of board games.

The swimming pool is a great place to relax. It is secluded and surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. You will almost feel like you can touch the snow on the peaks above you with your fingers. The sun’s rays make you feel like you’re in a dream when you are below.

For the active, the surroundings are full of curiosities; mountain trekking is a must, and the local Amazighvillages are fascinating. The nearest town is Tnine Ourika which has a large and exciting market, not Marrakech, located not far away. There are also a lot of trips than planned:

  • Camel treks.
  • Hot air balloon flights.
  • Mountain biking.
  • Exploring the Amazigh markets.
  • Skiing in the Atlas unless you prefer a milder activity like a Amazighmassage.
