Kasbah du Toubkal, Imlil

Tel: 212 2 448 5611's insider take:

A stunning restoration of an abandoned hilltop stronghold by two English brothers and their Moroccan partner, Kasbah du Toubkal is two hours and 40 miles south of Marrakesh on the lower slopes of Jbel Toubkal, North Africa's highest peak at 13,671 feet. Guests are driven from the city to the village of Imlil, then transferred by mule. A simple Berber lunch is taken on the Kasbah's upper terrace with snowy peaks looming high above. Afterwards, there is a bit of trekking before the trip back to the city, arriving by early evening. For those reluctant to leave, the Kasbah offers accommodation ranging from dormitory beds to a split-level, glass-walled suite.
