11 ensuite rooms and 3 Berber saloons, Kasbah du Toubkal has a roof top terrace offering a spectacular 360 degree panorama. There is a Hammam (Turkish Bath). The individually designed rooms are provided with locally crafted furniture and traditional handwoven Berber fabrics, including cosy wraps and soft slippers for relaxing by the wood-burning stoves on cool evenings.
Kasbah du Toubkal is a magnificent mountain retreat spectacularly situated in the heart of the High Atlas. Near the foot of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa, it is only 40 miles from Marrakech but the peace and quiet and seclusion are so complete the city seems a million miles away. There is no vehicle access right up to the entrance of the Kasbah, the final part of the journey is made on foot, a 10-15 minute walk uphill and on an unmade path. Should you not wish to, or be unable to walk to the hotel, this short journey can also be taken on mule back. Please note no alcohol - you are welcome to bring your own.
Equipped for day visits, seminars, residential stays or as a base for more active pursuits. The Berber people who staff the Kasbah will give you a warm welcome and a fascinating insight into their culture. Explore the village, nearby hamlets and the surrounding mountain landscape, on foot or by mule, or just put your feet up and relax on the terrace or in the hammam (steam bath). Day and overnight treks can be arranged if you wish to explore the Toubkal National Park in greater depth. There is a Trekking Lodge where you can stay if you plan to summit Mount Toubkal.
