Kasbah du Toubkal

The Kasbah du Toubkal is an extraordinary venture, the product of an imaginative Berber and European partnership. There is a shared belief that the beauty of the Toubkal National Park should be accessible to all who respect it. To this end the Kasbah has been transformed using traditional methods, from the home of a Feudal Caid into an unprecedented haven. As Condé Nast Traveller stated ‘... with the best rooftop views in North Africa…this is the country’s first and foremost mountain retreat ...’.

Situated above the village of Imlil and in view of the highest mountain in North Africa the setting is exceptional - Martin Scorsese used it as a set for his film on the Dalai Lama.

The Kasbah is a welcoming environment for those seeking superb rooms in a stunning setting and for those who are searching for a venue that inspires providing peace in a spectacular and rural location.

The Kasbah has 14 en suite rooms and 3 Berber Salons
