Our favourite rooms
We love the Agafay Suite with its sunny yellow details, trad Tuareg rug and free-standing bath tub. The Toubkal Suite has a fireplace and a black-tiled bathroom for added drama.
The heated courtyard pool is prettily tiled, dotted with sun loungers and tropical plants. Though perhaps not big enough for serious laps, it’s perfect for cooling off after a dusty day in the souks.
The rooftop spa has two treatment cabins and a traditional hammam. Treatments include black-soap body scrubs, deep-tissue massages, reflexology and cleansing clay facials. All treatments use natural products with native ingredients like argan oil and rhassoul clay, and there are manicures and pedicures for prettifying, too.
Bring something floaty and ethereal, for afternoons by the pool and golden hour on the rooftop.
Little Smiths aged 6-and-over are welcome. The two-bedroom Majorelle Room is perfect for a family of four but an extra bed can be made up in any of the suites.
Ksar Kasbah keeps its footprint small by using solar energy, sourcing all its food from local markets and stocking organic bath products from Les Marocains.
