Picturesquely situated amidst an exotic orchard at the foot of the impressive Atlas Mountains, Kasbah Igoudar is ideally situated for exploring Morocco’s diverse landscape. With an on-site spa and restaurant, a stunning outdoor pool and friendly staff on hand, you’ll have everything you could need for a truly relaxing stay.
After breakfast on the terrace, either spend the day relaxing on a lounger by the tranquil outdoor pool or travel to the center of Marrakech’s Medina, just 30 minutes away, where you’ll be able to haggle for leather goods straight from the tanneries, sample fresh spices or buy hand woven carpets. Kasbah Igoudar’s welcoming staff are also on hand to organize excursions for you such as a visit to a berber village, a hike through the Toubkal National Park or a hot air balloon ride over the Atlas Mountains’ lofty peaks.
Inside, Kasbah Igoudar is a cool haven of soft white linens, cool marble floors and spacious rooms, softly lit with candles and exotically furnished with fine Moroccan fabrics.

Stayed her for 5 nights with my friend. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough. So clean, great facilities, amazing food and the best staff ever. They went abovr amd beyond to make our stay magical. Thank you so much to Abdel, yassin and sabir and team!
Although the hotel is about an hour from Marrakesh, it is absolutely worth it. It is located amidst olive groves in a beautiful walled garden. As we went in March during the spring, the birdlife in the garden was excellent. We hired a car very cheaply from the airport for about £100 for five days and travelled around the region. A minibus is available for transfers and excursions can be booked, but the freedom of a car was better and also cheaper over a weeks stay. if you are staying for just a few days, then a single transfer to Marrakesh is 30 Euros return and may be your best bet. Driving in and around Marrakesh was not as lively as people had suggested although you do need to feel confident amidst a busy city. The surrounding mountains are stunning, snow covered, and they make a dramatic backdrop to the garden when lounging by the pool!! The staff are all extremely attentive and seem genuinely pleased to have you to stay. Nothing is too much trouble. They are all exceptionally friendly, speaking very good English and French. The food is of very good quality and the staff were happy to serve snacks and drinks at almost any time. we knew that the wi-fi would be intermittent as the marketing blurb makes this clear. Some guests seemed very complaining of this but if you want a little less screen time than usual, it is a blessing. We booked through Secret Escapes and welcomed a significant discount. we therefore felt that we had really great value for money.
First of all, this Hotel is a good distance from Marrakesh, so don’t expect just to pop back, willy nilly, plus, the fares are expensive if you do!
Secondly, don’t take a load of Dirhans, as cash is not accepted at this hotel, and you settle your bill by credit card at the end. This includes your transfers too, and from the Airport, which aren’t unreasonable, as it is a fair distance from Marrakesh, as I’ve already said. Having said that, any unused Dirhans can be reexchanged at the Airport before you fly back, at the same rate you bought them, which is brilliant.
Please have a few slack Dirhans to stick in the communal ‘tip’ box as you book out at the end of your visit as a thanks to the wonderful, helpful, charming Staff. We left 200 (£20) for the 3 days we were there.
All the beautifully uniformed Staff are lovely, smart, clean and charming, and don’t hover, or seem to expect tips, which, in itself takes a bit of getting used too, but just relax, and enjoy. A funny, little point, was the Receptionist asked my German born wife where she was from, and on entering our room, he had left a German novel for her, and one in English for me; nice touch.
The food is very limited in choice, especially for veggies like us, whom the locals view with curiosity, but it’s very well presented, and filling, and reasonably priced.
The Hotel itself is beautifully presented, with wonderful architecture, decoration, and tree lined gardens.
The views of the hills, countryside, and distant mountains are breathtaking, and so peaceful and calming. At night, the lack of light pollution affords you the chance to see a star filled sky few people will ever see.
We booked a day hill walking around the local town of Amizmiz on a Tuesday, when the full on Berber market is on. If you want a true sight of Morocco, eating in a proper, local farm house up in the hills, and mixing, without hassle, with locals, full on ‘going native’, then book with ‘BERBER TRAVEL’ with the wonderful, internationally travelled Jamal, who speaks perfect English, and has walked in most parts of the British Isles. Brilliant day out.
You may read negative comments on here, and our bed was a little firm for me, and the toilet seat loose, but apart from this, this place was tops.
Enjoy, kick back and relax!
We booked Kasbah Igoudar through Holiday pirates back in December as it was a very good offer. When we realised how far out it was and the travel involved we decided to spend two days in Marrakech first for sightseeing and then continued to the Kasbah. It was quite a way out but if you read the website it tells you. We informed the Kasbah beforehand of our plans and asked to be picked up beforehand which they did no problem.
Yes you pay for transport but other taxis would have charged a lot more, we did inquire. On arrival we got greeted in the loveliest manner, offered tea and biscuits while the paperwork got sorted. Our room wasn’t massive but we booked standard and it was lovely. Big bed, working bathroom, views to a beautiful orchard. A nightlight wasn’t working, we reported it and it was fixed when we returned from our dinner.
Yes the menu is a bit limited but it’s not a big hotel and everything is fresh and local. Yes you pay for water but it’s minimal and is has to be transported in so justified in our eyes.
Breakfast was enjoyable and pretty much the same as in other places, just nicer.
We have read the other reviews about unfriendly staff, being chased to pay after every drink to pay, not having fresh towels every day and other things. We were a bit worried but rest assured it’s not true whatsoever. The staff is exceptional and couldn’t do enough to make our stay enjoyable, no cash was being handled, you pay at the end of your stay by card after checking your itemised bill. Fresh towels every day, not really necessary if you ask me, how dirty do you get in one day. You are provided with pool towels separately.
The waiters were there all day at your beg and call. Served you drink and food whenever and wherever, service par excellence.
The whole ambience , views and location help you to relax and unwind. I have never felt so at peace and at once with nature then at this place.
This place is heaven pure and we can’t wait to return next year. Already looking forward to it. Big thanks to the manager and all the hardworking staff for our wonderful stay at your Kasbah.
