At a Glance

This palatial country retreat outside of Marrakech offers a serene stay in the palm grove.

Indagare Loves

  • That every suite is different and there’s a house party atmosphere
  • The cottages of boutiques with a great selection of Marrakech’s best treasures
  • Dining on the terrace under the palm trees


This decadent palace, on four acres of Persian gardens, comes complete with courtyards, rosebushes and fountains. The French owner studied Arabic culture, and although the building is new, it has been made to convincingly appear centuries old with such details as wooden beamed ceilings and stone fireplaces. The twelve suites are grand and calm, with Moorish-style baths and small roof terraces. Guests are ferried around in a brilliantly incongruous black London taxi, and when the weather heats up, you can dine in the shallow end of the swimming pool with your feet submerged. The chef trained with Joël Robuchon, and his dishes are outstanding; they helped earn the property Relais and Chateaux status. The enormous hammam is the best in town, and even if you are not staying here, you should pop over for lunch and a steam (book ahead) as well as a browse in the beautifully curated gift shop.

Who Should Stay

Those who don’t need to be right in town and who appreciate a country house hotel experience.
