Kasbah Bab Ourika, Atlas Mountains, Marrakech
Experience the magic and tranquillity that is Kasbah Bab Ourika nestled in the stunning spiritual Atlas Mountains, a 45 minute drive from Marrakesh.
Kasbah Bab Ourika offers peace and refuge to recharge and reconnect. Explore the secret contemplative gardens and find secluded corners for your own private contemplation.
Solidly built with walls of rammed earth made using an age-old Berber technique. Glass doorways let all the light in, but it’s the outdoor space that impresses most. Peaceful terraces with abundant views surround, and the mature, terraced gardens are a delight to explore. At night, large lanterns dance in the courtyard, outside the stars are wondrously bright.

What Marrakech has to offer..
If you would like to extend your trip to Morocco, here are some of our suggestions..
Seek the Souks
Take a walk through the tangle of alleys in the souks of Marrakech.
You can see craftsmen at their centuries-old skills – in the Babouche (slipper) Souk, the Dyers’ Souk with its riot of colours, the Ironworkers’ Souk, and the Carpet Souk.
The famous square – Djemaa el Fna
Located on the edge of the ancient medina between the souks (markets) and Koutoubia Mosque, the cultural setting comes alive at night. As you walk into the square, the first thing you will encounter is the thousands of people gathered for the evening. Full with cobra charmers, drummers, acrobats, dancers, storytellers and spice cake sellers – it is not to be missed.
Treks in the Atlas Mountains
Treks in the stunning snow caped Atlas Mountains can be arranged during your stay with us.
We can arrange a personal guide to take you out for the day or you might like to extend your stay at the Kasbah and spend a few days exploring in the clear air and the beauty Morocco has to offer.
