Aside from the views, walking is the main attraction. These range from gentle rambles to demanding multi-day treks supported by local guides. Follow ancient footpaths through walnut groves and along terraced mountainsides, or spend a night in the Kasbah’s own mountain hut while tackling Mount Toubkal – North Africa’s highest mountain.
Upon your return you can rejuvenate with a mint tea followed by a trip to the Kasbah’s hammam. Then feast on traditional Moroccan cuisine in the cosy dining room, where hearty tagines are served with couscous by candlelight.
Rooms feature carved walnut furniture and hand-woven carpets, with a range of options to suit both couples and families. The spacious Deluxe Rooms open onto a private balcony overlooking the gardens and mountains, while the three-bedroom Garden House is ideal for groups seeking extra space and privacy.
“Kasbah du Toubkal was conceived more as a Berber hospitality centre than a traditional hotel. Focused on sustainable tourism, it employs local staff and a percentage of profits go directly to fund community projects.”
