No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
An upmarket and well-designed establishment that attracts a wide variety of business and leisure guests, who appreciate the well arranged interior, large pool and easily accessible location.
The exterior, especially the side facing the road does little to inspire but the pool facing area and interior decor are more exciting and pleasing to the eye.
A spa facility is well organised and equipped and offers an acceptable addition to the other established wellbeing offerings of Marrakech.
A modern, pink coloured building with a wide drive up entrance and airy balconies, many of which overlook the attractive pool area.
Glass panelling of the two lower levels adds a modern charm and variety although the street facing elevation of the building is less exciting than that facing the gardens and pool.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Built Year: 2004
The lobby area with its immaculate marble cladding, polished woods and ornate doors provides an upmarket welcome although the staggered reception area is rather business like and stark in appearance with its white pillars and dark grey frontage whilst a fountain with a tiled surround monopolise a Riad style seating area with simple furnishings and subtle lighting.
An elegantly arched corridor leads to a smart and well-arranged dining room with an art deco theme and tall windows and terrace looking onto the gardens and pool. A second dining venue has a low ceiling and a buffet area and is often used for themed evening meals.
With nearly 200 palm trees planted in the well-landscaped gardens, a path leads through to the neighbouring sister property.
There is a good supply of comfortable sun-loungers on the wide surround as well as elegant white parasols and simple tables. A wide terrace has a service of drinks and light meals.
A state of the art spa facility is also open to the public and offers a wide variety of Moroccan and international treatments.
Area Type: In the popular and modern Gueliz district, almost 2km from the centre of the Medina and 500m from the railway station. The Opera House is 200m away and the main congress centre immediately opposite. A more established sister property is located 150m away, on the main road, nearer a small selection of local shops and restaurant facilities. Taxis wait outside the entrance.
