With palm-filled gardens, palatial style and a grand scale, this majestic property, comprised of private luxury riads, is like a mini-medina in itself.

Commissioned by the Moroccan king, it’s (fittingly) popular with European royalty, Hollywood stars, and British celebs and is the place to check in for an extravagant stay.

Sumptuous decor, luxuriant furnishings, private plunge pools and hammam, and an on-site spa complete the picture, while a personal butler will ensure you’re properly pampered.

And if you only eat at one hotel restaurant during your stay, make it La Grande Table Marocaine, which has a creative, contemporary Moroccan menu by Michelin-starred Yannick Alleno.

The location for sightseeing is excellent. Koutoubia Mosque is close by, and it’s a short walk to Jemaa El Fna.

Surrounding area

This mini-medina within Marrakech Medina is tucked just inside the old city walls, surrounded by palm groves, giving the sense you’re in the centre of a date-palm oasis. This makes for a tranquil atmosphere and quiet stay, aside from when the call-to-prayer punctuates the silence.

Koutoubia Mosque is virtually outside the door, and the Jemaa El Fna just beyond. In the other direction is Marrakech’s busy main boulevard, connecting the old city to the new.
