Welcome to Les Borjs de la Kasbah

A 4-star Riad-Hotel in the Marrakech medina combining modern comforts and traditional charm

In the Kasbah quarter of the ancient Marrakech medina, easily accessible by taxi, minibus and horse-drawn calèche and only yards from the Royal Palace, Les Borjs de la Kasbah is a luxury riad hotel in Marrakech meticulously created by craftsmen over a period of three years from a complex of six small town houses (dars) and one riad. On entering this haven of tranquillity you will be struck by the restful atmosphere of contemporary refinement and arabo-moorish charm, the whole contrasting sharply with the frenetic activity of the thronged medina beyond its walls.

All 18 bedrooms are disposed around, and look out on, one of four original patios, each planted with flowering shrubs or orange trees, a couple of them echoing to the sound of water spilling from ornamental fountains. The highest level of modern comforts is also assured, traditional features throughout being combined with contemporary overtones in the stylish furnishing and décor of the bar, two lounges and restaurant. A few yards away, at the foot of a renovated borj (one of the defensive towers built into the ancient walls of the Kasbah), a separate leisure area has been created with a pool and spa.

Our aim is to provide a high quality of experience for our visitors in terms of accommodation and meals with service provided by professionally attentive, friendly but unobtrusive restaurant and housekeeping staff. Many of the largely female, 24 strong team speak French while Reception and Restaurant staff also speak English. Tom Bruce-Mitford, our Franco-British Director, also speaks Japanese, Spanish and some Italian. Both he, his Moroccan wife, Nora (co-director) and their Reception team are always delighted to help with general advice about what to see and do in Marrakech and to make bookings on request for excursions around Marrakech, up into the Atlas mountains and in the surrounding area.
