High in the Atlas Mountains, the enchanting Kasbah Bab Uurika overlooks a breathtaking landscape. 360-degree panoramic views? Indeed.
From your hilltop lookout at the apex of the Ourika valley a feast of natural beauty waits to melt your heart.

The authentic charm of the Kasbah Bab Ourika makes relaxation easy. Whether you’re enjoying your individually decorated room, or unwinding by the secluded swimming pool, get ready to be warmed by the yummy Moroccan sun from dawn to dusk.
Hi, I'm Sammy!
I created BLITZ By Harper with four pillars in mind; FITNESS. MIND. COMMUNITY. FUN. These are the cornerstones and something every BLITZ class represents. It is more than just a workout programme, it's a community, it's working out for the body AND the mind.
Meet Esmée - fitness and wellness guru! Also known as Essa G, our girl knows how to live life to the fullest whilst also taking into consideration all the important elements that make up physical and mental health. Come hang out with Essa as she guides you through electrifying workouts, educates on her daily mantras and shows you how to have a damn good time.
If WE have to cancel the trip because of travel bans/border restrictions etc, then you have the following options:
If YOU have to cancel the trip because of issues with local lockdown restrictions, positive test preventing you from travelling, etc, and the trip is still going ahead, then you will need to make a claim with your travel insurance provider.
This is because if indeed there are some form of local lockdown restrictions still in place, these are likely to affect only a few individuals joining the trip.
With guests joining us from different parts of the world, all with different rules/restrictions it is extremely difficult for us to provide a comprehensively flexible policy that would cover everyone.
As an aside, you will need to have travel insurance to attend any of our trips. We would recommend that for the time being your travel insurance should also cover you for the following:
Absolutely! We will always schedule down time in our daily itinerary for you to chill by the pool, go to the spa or nap in the sunshine.
Fly into Marrakech.
The transfer from the airport to the villa is roughly 50 minutes.
We always accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities & pace, and our epic trainers are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. The Blitz is all about community and so we encourage you to get stuck in as much as possible, challenge yourself and see what you’re capable of!
It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible, challenge yourself for the week, and see what you’re capable of! Remember, it is a fitness retreat after all.
The coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style & location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements involving sandbags and dumbbells, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, team runs, HIIT circuits and our legendary finishers! There will also be the option of a daily yoga and meditation session
Yes. To do this, first you need to confirm your place on the Escape by paying the appropriate deposit. After we've received the funds we'll be in touch to set up your instalments.
