No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
A calm, relaxed establishment that attracts discerning clients who appreciate the laid back atmosphere of the Kasbah area and the tranquil surroundings of the property. Although compact and smaller than its sister operation, the communal facilities are well arranged with much attention to detail.
Appeals to well heeled travellers looking for a quality establishment and a small boutique style base with a spa and sizeable pool. A cookery school also operates for those interested in Moroccan cuisine.
A plain wall on the side of the busy street has an easy to miss door with a lamp and polished sign to one side. An inner courtyard is elegantly designed with majestic arches and pillars. Some rooms have a balcony or terrace with sunloungers.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Built Year: 2001
Partly tiled gentle arches that line the courtyard provide access to delightfully intimate lounges with sumptuous furnishings with displays of Moroccan artefacts.
Elegant dining room is pristine, overflowing in to the garden terrace beneath the trees. A bar service is available in all communal areas and breakfast may be taken in any of the lounges as well as in the restaurant.
Gardens are a peaceful oasis with banana and palm trees occasionally linked by a hammock or two. Lush vegetation provides some privacy for sunbathers and the pool is adequate in size for the number of guests.
Roof terrace has more sunloungers with splendid views across the Kasbah and to the Atlas Mountains beyond. A terrace to one side of the garden is used for romantic evening meals.
Area Type: In the relatively calm Kasbah area, to the south of the ancient Medina, on a wide street, with a few other similar style properties in the area. A larger sister operation, Jardins de la Koutoubia, is located in the central area of the Medina. A good supply of small shops and restaurants can be found in the surrounding streets. Taxis wait within 50m of the entrance for the 1km journey to Jemma el Fna and beyond.
