We stayed in the Medina during our recent trip to Marrakesh however went on a day trip which included lunch at Kasbah Bab Ourika. We got a camel ride up to this gorgeous location at the top of the mountain and had a lovely lunch in the sunshine. This venue is relaxing with amazing views and I would have stayed...

Admittedly, I stayed when there were bad storms and flooding, but my thoughts wouldn't be affected by the weather. First, beautiful area and the grounds are quite nice. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Go for rooms with fireplace. My room had only a gas heater that I had trouble turning on and off. I needed help form the staff...

This was a great stay for me and my friend. After spending two days in the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh, we arrived to this Kasbah for some down time. It was wonderful. The grounds are beautiful with so many places to sit and look at the views on every side. And if you want more privacy, I believe most...

Some of the reviews had been so-so but Kasbah Bab Ourika was a perfect antidote to Marrakech. Beautifully restored and very simple but clearly thought through design throughout - just enough without being self-consciously 'design'. The rooms were simple but comfortable and peaceful with open fireplaces and great views of the Atlas mountains or Ourika valley (room 9 has a...

What an amazing place! Stayed for 4 days and totally switched off. You really can switch off here... the joys of technology could be left alone as signal not brilliant , that was a plus though.

We recently visited Kasbah Bab Ourika at the recommendation of friends who had been there and were not disappointed. The property is beautiful--tucked up on a hill overlooking to Atlas Mountains, our suite offered a stunning vista from all angles. The hotel itself had wonderful touches--with one of my favorites being many different nooks to sit and enjoy peace and...

The other reviews have made it clear this is a fantastic Kasbah. A perfect visit to Morocco would include no more than 3 nights in Marrakesh and then time here. Lots of walking, book a guide. Lunch in a local village etc. it is only 45 mins from airport. Nonetheless- they fail to hit the heights consistently: the pool is...

In the High Atlas Mountains, but remarkably only an hour from Marrakech, this property is gorgeous. Sitting in a lounge chair, one views snow-covered mountains in one direction, and Berber villages in the warm valleys below in another. They grow virtually all their own produce in acres of carefully tended gardens – we saw more olives on trees than our...

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
