Fodor's Expert Review Kasbah Hotel Aït Omar
Nekob, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco
The premier address in the village of Nekob, this old family kasbah has been lovingly restored to high specifications. Elements of traditional design—such as magnificent keyhole arched doorways and rammed-earth walls inset with Berber motifs and mosaic tiling—are carefully combined with modern elegance; European finishing touches include specially imported bed linen and high-grade mattresses. Lodging options are divided into simple rooms and comfortable apartments scattered between the main kasbah and the small kasbah ("basement" rooms in the latter are cheaper, costing around 400 DH). Roof terraces, pretty courtyards, a playroom, restaurant, and swimming pool complete the picture. It's a great base for exploring the region, and the owners can set up guided hikes into the Djebel Sarhro mountains.
