Kasbah du Toubkal
A magnificent mountain retreat spectacularly situated near the foot of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa, Kasbah du Toubkal is only 40 miles from Marrakech but the peace and quiet and seclusion are so complete the city seems a million miles away.
Just 40 miles from Marrakech, the Kasbah du Toubkal is a welcoming environment for people seeking a comfortable mountain refuge and for those who wish for superb rooms in a stunning setting. The en suite rooms in the gardens have been built catering for most modern comforts and The Garden House includes a spectacular apartment that meets the requirements of most people and has even been rented by celebrities.
A stay at the kasbah is a unique chance to learn about the Berber culture and simple lifestyles of these proud mountain people who have changed little over the centuries. The village of Imlil comprises some five separate settlement areas with a population of just 1,500. Its location is at the end of the main road system, beyond which narrow footpaths and precipitous mule tracks are the only channels of communications with the outside world.
The Kasbah recently opened a trekking lodge in a remote location in the heart of the High Atlas Mountains. Built in traditional style, it offers solar-powered underfloor heating and spectacular views a day’s walk away.
