We loved the apartment suite in the Garden House with its rolltop bath, huge living area and 12m glass wall opening onto a balcony with views of waterfalls and the High Atlas. There is also a beautiful Junior suite with its own private Berber lounge and terrace.
Eat & Drink
Kasbah du Toubkal is made for sociable dining, so you’ll have ample opportunity to meet your fellow guests. Moroccan-French specialities range from hearty soups and excellent tagines to delicious desserts such as tarte aux pommes. There are plenty of veggie options. Alcohol is not served out of respect for local tradition, but you are welcome to bring your own.
Breakfast times are relaxed – just let your hosts know when you'd like to eat. Delicious options include Moroccan pancakes served with local honey.
Available only for the Apartment suite and guests taking exclusive use of the Garden House.
See & Do
You’ll have every chance to explore the Atlas mountains and scenic Toubkal National Park during your stay, with a choice of easy, moderate and strenuous hikes. These range from an easy 45-minute walking tour of local villages to a tough guided ascent of Jbel Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak. Many include picnic lunches. Not into hiking? Book a camel ride, catch up with your books on the rooftop balconies, wallow in the hammam, play chess or snap those mountain vistas.
Book a private hammam session to feel squeaky clean and super-relaxed.
Head to the village of Imilchil for the annual Berber wedding festival.
