Hotel Kasbah du Toubkal in Imlil
The Kasbah du Toubkal is in the High Atlas mountains, 1.5 hours south of Marrakech, at the foot of the highest peak in North Africa (Jbel Toubka).
At 1800m above sea level the hotel overlooks three valleys, and is backed by the snow-capped mountains.
Originally built in the 1940's as a cool retreat in the hot summer months, it was totally rebuilt in the 1990's using local techniques and materials.
A result of a Berber and european partnership the Kasbah provides a comfortable mountain refuge in the stunning setting of the beautiful Toubkal National Park. The Berbers run the Kasbah, making it less a hotel, and more an extension of the hospitality they would offer in their own homes.
The en-suite rooms are newly built in the gardens to cater for modern comforts and the Garden house includes a larger appartment. In addition to this, the original rooms of the kasbah are berber salons that cater for families and larger groups. This gives a broad range of travellers and a sense of community.
The kasbah is not licenced for alcohol, so clients should take their own if required.
Free nights, upgrades, hammam & massage and honeymoon special offers.
Colourful dunes and natural rock landscapes of the Sahara

Feedback and reviews
This was lovely. The situation is superb and the staff were very helpful and charming. They upgraded our room and gave us a free lunch! The hamman was also free and there were lots of goodies in the room. A.N in March 2010
The Berbers are such welcoming, wonderful people. They go to great lengths to make their guests happy. The deluxe double was not what we expected, but they tried very hard to give us an alternative. They do have other large suites(Berber Suite) that are better for families. You shouldn't be worried to offer the two standard rooms opposite each other. It's not that they are two internal rooms seperated by a corridor so much as two turret rooms on the roof of the building with a small passage way between which are charming. Amazing views from the top"tower" and according to my husband great for watching the sunrise!The wonderful cook Omar is also a fantastic local guide and he took us out for the morning. My daughter made friends with the local children! and one of the local mules carried her on the mountain when the trekking got too much. A truly magical place amongst some of the most charming people on this planet. S.W. in October 2009
