Kasbah du Toubkal, the home of Berber hospitality, is set on a hilltop 1800 metres up in the Toubkal National Park below the towering flanks of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa (4167m). The Kasbah is the ideal base for walks or treks in the High Atlas Mountains including day walks, the ascent of Jbel Toubkal, whose base camp is just a 6-hour walk away, or overnight stays in local villages.
The Kasbah du Toubkal is really set back in time with all the luxuries one needs to relax, enjoy nature and take in all the 360 degree breathtaking views. We so enjoyed the trekking in the area, waterfalls and tranquility. The Berber hospitality and food was excellent and we so enjoyed the unique walk with our donkey to the hotel. We hope to return one day to summit the famous Jbel Toubkal.
Kasbah du Toubkal is set in the High Atlas Mountains below Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. Just 65km from Marrakech, it is a world apart. With access only by foot or by mule, it is a very different proposition from most hotels.
The Kasbah has built a four-bedroomed trekking lodge a 5-hour trek from the Kasbah, where guests may stay for a night or two in a valley virtually untouched by tourism and where they can see and walk through villages little changed for centuries. The trekking lodge is staffed and has its own hammam.
Kasbah du Toubkal offers fourteen en-suite rooms and three family/group rooms. Much of the Kasbah has underfloor heating and all of the bedrooms have great views with many having windows looking out to more than one aspect. The rooms at the Kasbah are spread around the property.
– Five Standard Rooms with showers rather than baths
– Five Deluxe Rooms with baths and private balconies
– Two Superior Rooms that are slightly smaller than the Deluxe Rooms
– One Junior Suite consists of a lounge, study and bedroom with a five-piece bathroom
– One Master Suite approximately 100 sq m and the lounge has a 10m floor to ceiling glass wall and two balconies.
The two suites, plus a Superior Room, can be configured into a three-bedroomed private house with total privacy.
– The Kasbah has a main dining room and two small private dining rooms.
– A Grand Salle which can act as a small conference room, a media/viewing room or as a yoga/dance studio. It has great views, underfloor heating and Wi-Fi.
– Two hammam/saunas (steam rooms) for guests to use (no spa service)
– Library with W-Fi and a winter room with 360º views.
Important to Note: The Kasbah does not serve alcohol in respect of the local Islamic traditions but adopts a ‘bring your own’ policy without corkage.
The Honeymoon Couple were invited guests of Kasbah du Toubkal, however the views and opinions expressed are solely our own.
