Kasbah du Toubkal

Kasbah du Toubkal

Sit back and take in the spectacular landscapes and tranquility of Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains, set in a sanctuary honoring Berber culture.

Surrounded by the picturesque peaks of Morocco’s High Atlas mountains just 40 miles from energetic Marrakech, the Kasbah du Toubkal values simplicity and respect for its surrounding environment and native Berber culture above all else. Founded as a calming base from which adventurous souls can hike and explore the vast Toubkal National Park, the Kasbah invites visitors to reconnect with nature and a sense of adventure. 

 

With a devotion to thoughtful hospitality that considers both people and place, the Kasbah du Toubkal has thoughtfully designed rustic and relaxing rooms acting as a refuge from the outdoor elements. The Kasbah’s activities allow guests to take a step back from the modern world and appreciate the historic wonder that sits in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains.

Summit North Africa’s highest peak
The base camp of north Africa's highest mountain, the 4,167m Jbel Toubkal, is a day’s walk away so the Kasbah du Toubkal is an ideal starting point for a challenging yet magical ascent. The summit can be achieved in two days and the Kasbah can take care of all logistics.

Regenerative Impact

Founded in harmony with the High Atlas Mountains and its surrounding terrains, the Kasbah du Toubkal strives to preserve and honor the landscapes and culture of its local Berber community.

The guest house’s rooms were designed using natural materials to blend in thoughtfully with its surrounding mountain landscape. The rooms were renovated in keeping with Berber architecture and artisan craft.
Fully aware of the importance of honoring the Indigenous culture of a place, guests are always asked to wash hands before entering the dining area and the on-site bar does not sell alcohol (guests can respectfully bring their own if they wish). Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the team with rose water splashed on their hands and are served a date, often dipped in milk, to restore energy.
The Kasbah du Toubkal founded the Moroccan charity Education For All to build boarding houses in the local Imlil area to provide girls between the ages of twelve and seventeen with key education and materials that they would otherwise be denied in their rural villages.
The Kasbah du Toubkal only works with local Berber guides to provide them with sustainable employment opportunities and supports Berber women in showcasing and selling their foods such as locally made bread. 80% of staff members are able to walk to work at the Kasbah from their homes, meaning they don’t need to leave the local Imlil area in search of employment opportunities.
