Beatriz Maximo is originally from Portugal. She fell in love with Morocco more than 20 years ago when she moved to Skoura, southern Morocco and renovated an ancient Kasbah she turned into a hotel. Her passion for Moroccan people, style and culture grew over the years as did her love for the world of hospitality.
Beatriz is a natural at making each guest always feel welcomed and at home with her warm personality and attention to detail- she is the soul of Kasbah Bab Ourika.
