The location is great: very quiet, the view is amazing, it is located in a natural park. The rooms are big and beautiful, the service is perfect, the food is wonderful. The pool is a perfect way to relax after the walks in the natural park that the hotel has available with local guides (very nice by the way). I... More

This was an amazing riad style in a fabulous hill-top setting looking out on the mountains. The riad itself is very carefully arranged with comfortable bedrooms and lovely shared sitting rooms. It was lovely to have the peace of the environment and the views and walks too. The riad grounds are wonderful - very well cultivated and tended and very... More

We have just come back from Kasbah Bab Ourika where a friend made a fabulous 50th birthday party. In the spirit of full disclosure, being away with a large group of friends was so much fun that I may not be entirely objective but I thought the hotel was fabulous. Tasteful rooms, lovely common areas, very good food, great trekking... More

This hotel springs up like an oasis offering a magical time in an awesome place. The beauty of the mountains is a magnificent backdrop for this utterly and surprisingly modern hotel with full amenities but with the architecture and color of the place. There are wonderful rooms inside to get lost in, great outdoor spaces to enjoy and a wonderful... More

I was not prepared for the beauty of the site, the fabulous tasteful decoration of the hotel/restaurant (rustic Berber), the beatiful gardens. We only did an afternoon trip out from Marrakech to eat at the restaurant. Wow, the place sits on the very point/top of a high hill so you get 360 degree views. Green valley, high snow capped mountains,... More

What an extraordinary place. We came here on a recommendation and it was perfect. I wouldn't recommend bringing children here as there is not much to do other than relax, eat good food and enjoy the most idyllic setting.

Our first experience in Morocco and it was great. The setting is perfect with great views from the bedrooms & even better from the wonderful gardens & terraces. Deluxe rooms are simple but very comfortable with everything you need, including luxuriant gowns & slippers.

Food wonderful and very accommodating to even the youngest travellers. Everywhere you walk boasts a new view and a perfect private spot for just relaxing or reading a book. Excellent service. Pool perfect for the size of the hotel. No crowds here. Max about 40 guests? Plenty of activities available for both young and old. Best time to take advantage... More

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
