The Kasbah Bab Ourika stands on a hill looking down on the Ourika Valley’s river, green fields and citrus groves, all framed by the snowy peaks of the Atlas Mountains.

There are 26 beautiful rooms, each individually decorated in a way that blends traditional Berber architecture with vintage pieces and modern luxuries. Rooms are split between the main earthen building and the garden, including two pool suites, and all enjoy outstanding views. It is one of the most eco-friendly buildings in the country and was constructed using traditional methods.

A fabulous place to escape the energy of Marrakesh, relax in the extensive gardens, read in the fire-warmed lounge or watch the sun set from the infinity pool. Meals are served in the gardens or in the colonnaded restaurant by a chef who specialises in traditional Berber recipes as well as international cuisine. There’s also a spa and hammam, camel trekking, guided village walks, a number of hikes, mountain biking and more.

Positive Impact

Eco-friendly building

The Kasbah Bab Ourika is one of the most eco-friendly buildings in Morocco, constructed in a traditional way using pise (rammed earth) with thick walls providing natural insulation in summer and winter to ensure a balanced temperature. The Kasbah also uses solar panels to heat the building and the domestic water supply and all grey water at the kasbah is recycled and used in the garden. The majority of staff are from the nearby villages, ensuring that the kasbah is integrated into the local community, which is also supported by water storage schemes and school sponsorship.
