Murano Resort

Murano Resort, Marakesh Morocco

★    ★    ★    ★    ★

No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]

A stylish, upmarket oasis in the heart of the Palmeraie region. Attracts a wide range of discerning guests who seek modern decor and furnishings in a relaxed, remote setting.

The healthy blend of neo classical chic and traditional Moroccan designs is attractive and cheerful, especially the brightly coloured textiles and seating. Bar is somewhat sterile and futuristic and perhaps not as luxurious as might be expected.

Exterior

A tall, forbidding wall with a wide gateway protects a modern beige coloured building with slender chimneys and wide balconies. Narrow doorway resembles the entrance to a medieval church but blends in well with the surrounding arches. Tall, arched windows lead from some of the communal areas into the gardens.

Property type: Hotel

Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms

Storeys: 2

Built Year: 2007

Interior

Interior decor is rather dark and minimalist although some of the furnishings are somewhat loud in colour and design. Gentle arches and alcoves create a stylish and mystical theme in the lounges and dining areas.

Bar and restaurant are elegantly furnished although the fabrics and table linens could do with some attention. Some of the bench like seating in the bar appears rather uncomfortable and functional.

Rooms: 24

Grounds

Flat and tastefully landscaped gardens are lush with green vegetation, lofty palms and colourful flowering shrubs. Pool is rather small for a property in the five-star category but adequate for the number of rooms.

An island has a set of pristine white sofas on display and the pink cushions on the sunloungers blend in well with the surroundings. There is no spa onsite but guests may use the facilities of neighbouring establishments.

Location

Area Type: In the heart of the Palmeraie, in a remote location, with very little around in the way of tourist attractions. There are horse and camel rides available in the surrounding palm groves and a golf course is located 2km away. Taxis wait on the arid land outside for the 9km journey to the Medina area and there are a couple of other walled, riad style properties in the immediate vicinity which provide alternative dining venues.
