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.
How to Get There
Our time at Kasbah Igoudar
Ruth and I felt “at home” from Day 1. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to assist you. The food was great. We loved the pool!! From the terraces you could see the olive groves (which were being stripped of their olives by the locals when we were there – early December 2018) and in the distance, the Atlas Mountains. You felt you could just stretch out your hand and touch them.
The sunsets, and at night, the stars were fabulous! There is no air or light pollution at all. We spent a week at the Kasbah, using the hotel organised guides to show us the sights. We went hot air ballooning, were spellbound by the landscape, marvelled at Marrakesh’s architecture, visited the YSL garden (loved the blue he used), discovered the souks, the centuries old market, trekked in the Atlas Mountains and visited the town the other side of the mountains where the film studios are, and, of course, relaxed with some spa pampering back at the hotel.
We didn’t want to go home. The local people (Berbers) were so welcoming. The staff at the hotel brilliant. What a beautiful place to have a hotel – between the mountains and Marrakesh. A great holiday in a super hotel in a beautiful country.

I’ve just stayed here for a week and loved it.. everything we needed and more. Very still and quiet location with a spectacular backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. Attentive, lovely staff who really care about their guests’ experience and want to look after you. They catered for our meal requirements (no gluten or dairy) without any problem. Some packing/weather tips.. The pool was too cold to swim in at this time of year (unless you’re totally numb to the cold!) and it was freezing at night and warmed up during the day. Really large room with a bath and big heater, very comfortable. Would definitely recommend as a lovely place to deeply relax and a great place to do day trips from.
The resort is further away from Marrakesh than we thought, for each return transport we were supposed to pay 60€ which adds up. The breakfast is very disappointing, the quality of the food bad and even after reporting food allergies several times, the staff was not able to cater alternative food options. Lunch and dinner is quite expensive, as well as bottled water. Our so called 'Welcome drink' was a small bottle of water.
Communication can be very difficult since part of the Staff speaks only arabic or french, we had several occasions where our bookings were not followed up properly, one night we ended up having to find a cab ourselves late in the night even though we made a booking with the hotel 2 days in advance.
The place is beautiful, the view to the Atlas mountains is stunning and it could be a very relaxing place, but we constantly had to haggle and even after agreeing certain terms, the reception staff raised amounts which weren't appropriate. Even though the place is beautiful, we wouldn't want to stay there again.
Lovely the garden, pool, sunset and view from the terrace overlooking the mountains, kind the people working there, BUT THE MANAGEMENT IN NOT GOOD.
The the a real manager and some more effort from the property.
No WiFi working, no hitters and no hot water the first night (likely Hamid was very helpful).
Good the restaurant BUT NOT ENOUGH STAFF and always the same cart.
YOU CAN DO BETTER!!!
Thanks for a lovely few day must say that it was so relaxing wished we had a few more days SPECIAL thanks to Nourddine, Youssef, Abdelhakim, Yassine, Khalid, Sabir and all the other staff who looked after us during our stay.
