Hotels

Designed by noteworthy Jean Baptiste Barian, specialist in Arab Andalusian architecture, this restored palace is located on the South Hill with breathtaking views of the bustling, historical Medina. All 25 suites include meticulously designed Moroccan textiles and art work. Nice, small spa and outdoor pool. We very much enjoyed the tasty breakfasts on the hotel’s terrace during our stay here. A recent client remarked on the stunning views over the historical Medina (as well as the artichoke and lamb tagine!)

About a 5 min drive from Kasbah Taourirt, the 241 room Berbere Palace is the finest luxury property in Ouarzazate. In contrast to the city and and surrounding areas, the Berbere Palace seems like a pampered oasis, with its beautiful gardens and pool. Similar to other luxury properties in Morocco, the Berbere is designed in traditional Moorish style, with the restaurant offering unique, local Berbere dishes. Based on the number of motion pictures filmed in the area, there is always an opportunity for celebrity people watching here!

Originally opened in 1923, this 210-room Moorish-style iconic luxury hotel recently completed a comprehensive 3-year restoration. Under the guidance of Parisian designer Jacques Garcia, the detailed, meticulously laid-out renovation was carried out by over 1,000 craftsmen in the property on any given work day. We were happy to see La Mamounia’s stunning outdoor pool is still intact (through redesigned) as well as a new indoor pool. If bodywork enthusiasts, I am sure you will very much enjoy the opulent, up-dated 27,000 sq. ft. spa (must be 16 or older.) Set amid 17 acres of lush gardens with olive and orange groves, La Mamounia is considered Marrakech’s premier luxury hotel among Morocco’s elite. What the Hassler is to Rome, we feel the La Mamounia is to Marrakech. The only downside here is La Mamounia’s somewhat snooty dress code. Casual wear is only permitted in the pool side Le Pavillion de la Piscine restaurant, while “smart/glamour” is required in all other areas. Great location, about 5 min by car to Djemâa el Fna. Of Special note, Winston Churchill came here to paint, staying at the then grand old La Mamounia and called it, “Simply the nicest place on Earth to spend an afternoon.“
