La Maison Arabe
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.
