Authentic décor, fine dining and wonderful service combine for an enchanting Moroccan experience.
Nestled in the walls of Marrakech’s medina, La Maison Arabe is an oasis of calm away from the lively souks. It’s small enough to have a warm, welcoming atmosphere and personalised service, yet large enough to provide plenty of secluded spots to relax.
At the fine dining Le Restaurant, you can sample an exclusive local menu underneath a hand-painted zouaké ceiling accompanied by Arab-Andalucian music. Enter Les Trois Saveurs, lit by teardrop-shaped lanterns, and enjoy French, Moroccan and Asian cuisine inside or al fresco on the poolside terrace. As night falls, head to the 1930s-style Piano-Jazz Bar for classic pre- and post-dinner drinks. There’s also a refreshing central swimming pool in a courtyard strewn with olive trees and roses, and a spa with two hammams.
If you want to get a little further out of the centre, then make the most of the hotel’s exclusive Country Club, just 15 minutes away by free shuttle service – where you’ll find a second pool in lush gardens and another restaurant, Le Figuier. Back at the hotel, rooms and suites are housed in two buildings – patio side and garden side – that surround the swimming pool. Each is unique in décor and layout – most feature a fireplace and terrace, and all have a traditional marble bathroom and Wi-Fi.
At the edge of the medina, just 2 minutes’ walk from the souks and 10 minutes from Djemaa el-Fna
