Would you really like to get away from it all? Then consider the Kasbah du Toubkal set high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. And if you’re accustomed to stepping out of your cab and straight into your hotel you’ll find that even your arrival at the Kasbah du Toubkal is definitely out of the ordinary.
The hotel is set in such a remote location that you’ll have to take a ten-minute walk to reach it from the nearest remote village but don’t worry, your luggage will be transported by local camels or mules. Isn’t that pretty wonderful? And you haven’t set foot in this fantastic hotel yet.
On arrival in the traditionally decorated foyer / lounge you’ll be treated to local mint tea to refresh you after your walk. All the rooms, including the guest bedrooms, feature original local decor and traditional robes are even supplied for guests. All the guest bedrooms are different – you are definitely not staying in an American cookie cutter chain hotel; here!
The hospitality of the locals is legendary and reviewers rave about the friendly and caring staff. They will help you with all your requirements whether you want to spend your time enjoying the peace, quiet and wonderful scenery or if you prefer to hike in the are and see the spectacles that the Atlas Mountains have to offer.
Other highlights are the rooftop terrace, the dining rooms with real log fire and … the food. But let’s not forget the fabulous and spectacular views. Add to these the tranquility of the area and you have the perfect location if you’re looking to get away from the rigors of everyday life or the heavily trafficked tourist areas.
What makes the Kasbah du Toubkal even better is that it is an eco-lodge and part of its proceeds go towards helping the local community.
