— How would you describe Kasbah Bab Ourika in a nutshell?
— Kasbah Bab Ourika
— Please describe the layout of the Kasbah and the rooms.
All of our rooms have great views. The style of the rooms reflects the Berber culture. The beds’ headboards have been upholstered in natural tones of leather, Beni Ourain rugs cover floor surfaces, windows are dressed with old Berber plaids — each one is unique in design — and Berber blankets decorate the beds.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at Kasbah Bab Ourika?
Light changes during the day create different magical ambiances. Mornings are glorious and later when the light begins to soften, drawing itself down the snow-capped mountains the valley, it becomes greener and redder and at dusk magic starts with candle lights all over the courtyards and terraces. Dinner is served outside half of the year under the stars with the breeze bringing garden scents in.
Winter days are mostly sunny and nights are cooler but the rooms are cosy. Log fires welcome you to the bar or the TV room to watch a movie.
A lot of our guests come to relax and unwind. Lazy lunches, reading in the many special places around the gardens. Others may want to see more of the Ourika Valley with excursions from the Kasbah or to trek in the national park next the Kasbah.”
— Who should stay at Kasbah Bab Ourika and who should rather book something else?
Our staff is part of the hotel family and they are proud of the hotel that has been created together. They will do their best to make you feel that the Kasbah is your home away from home.
From up here we have one of the most spectacular views of North Africa. I can’t tell you how many times our guests have told us that this is the most beautiful place they have been to which delights and motivates us all.”

— Please tell us about the restaurant and the food you serve.
Kasbah Bab Ourika and freelance consultant chef Michael Arthur have been working on a unique vision to create a balanced Moroccan and European menu. Our menu changes daily reflecting the fresh produce from our kitchen gardens and the surrounding valley.
Food is simple and healthy, rural and local but with sophistication and is served in the pagoda restaurant or under the trees.”

The gardens are luxurious and spacious and feature a large swimming pool, water gardens and immaculate kitchen gardens that supply the Kasbah restaurant.
We are attentive to our guests’ personal requests and needs and offer a wide range of excursions and activities as well as spa and massage treatments. A particular favourite is demonstrations given by the Kasbah Kitchen on creating typical Berber dishes.”
