At the top of a hill in the Atlas Mountains sits Kasbah Bab Ourika, a stunning traditional villa of rammed earth that surveys all that lies before it without overtaking the natural beauty of its surroundings. Here among the warm brown stone walls, guests can commune with the traditions of Moroccan culture through Berber and Arabic dishes, and reflect on the arid landscape from the hotel’s veritable oasis, the botanical garden.

The stunning architecture of Kasbah Bab Ourika was constructed out of rammed earth using traditional Berber building techniques; the thick walls provide natural insulation from the Moroccan sun. But Kasbah has also embraced the modern by using solar panels to heat the building and its water. The hotel allows guests to experience traditional Berber culture through meals made from ingredients from the garden or local markets, while hiring local staff to support the nearby communities.


Kasbah Bab Ourika is a retreat unlike any other, where you can soak up the sun from your own personal oasis.
