Kasbah du Toubkal, Morocco

Those seeking to experience authentic Morocco should head to Kasbah du Toubkal, a boutique hotel situated in the foothills of Mount Toubkal in the High Atlas Mountains.


The ancient hilltop fort in its peaceful and serene surrounding landscape is so remote and unspoilt that it’s hard to believe you are a mere 90-minute drive from the bustle of Marrakech. The magnificent scenery makes it the perfect base for hiking, and the Kasbah is happy to organise a personal mountain guide. Or you can simply unwind by sipping a fresh mint tea on the hotel’s terrace, which offers unparalleled views of the surrounding mountains. Utter bliss. Focus is on tradition, and this is reflected in everything from the décor to the gastronomic offering. Simple Berber cuisine is a speciality, and evening meals include homemade (and rather delicious) harira soup, couscous, and tagines. The hotel has 14 en-suite rooms and three family rooms.


The Medina

Get lost in the Medina with its endless shelves of inlaid cedar boxes, ceramics, textiles, babouche slippers, spices, tribal jewellery, and intricate metalwork for a truly unforgettable experience.

33 Rue Majorelle

The maze of shops and stalls in Marrakech is enticing – and at times overwhelming. For a slice of 21st-century retail therapy, head to pioneering boutique 33 Rue Majorelle for the best of Morocco’s modern art and design.
