A luxurious hotel tucked away in the quieter residential area of Hivernage, Dar Rhizlane’s stunning Moroccan-French cuisine and elegant swimming pool makes it one of our favourite spots in Marrakech. The hotel was originally built as a private villa, and the fantastical décor is like something out of the stories of Scheherazade, filled with intricate woodwork, airy drapes and balconies trimmed with moucharabieh screens.
Outside, a beautifully tiled swimming pool sits within a lush garden filled with foliage, and the rooftop terrace gives wonderful views over Marrakech at sunset. Whether enjoying a pampering massage in the hotel’s spa, or dining on mouth-watering Moroccan cuisine in Dar Rhizlane’s gourmet restaurant, your stay at this luxurious getaway will be one of blissful relaxation.
Enjoy a continental-style breakfast, which can be taken al fresco in the hotel’s beautiful gardens. Light meals are served throughout the day, perfect for lazy days spent lounging beside the pool. In the evenings, enjoy an exciting Moroccan-French cuisine in the elegant dining room. Alternatively, take your meal beside the pool beneath the shade of roses and Seville orange trees for a particularly romantic evening.
Each of the 20 rooms and suites at Dar Rhizlane have their own private garden or terrace, many with views of the lush garden filled with palm trees and olive trees. Every room is individually designed with unique colour schemes and antique objects d’art and cultural artefacts, but all have enormous beds and private en-suite bathrooms.
The hotel’s swimming pool is particularly inviting during the sultry summer months, and it is heated during winter so you can enjoy it whatever the weather. The pool area is surrounded with flourishing greenery that provides shade during the hot days, and the pool itself is ringed by spacious sun loungers. The hotel’s spa is the perfect follow-up to a day spent exploring the busy souks and bustling streets of Marrakech. Relax in the elegant hammam before treating yourself to one of the massages and beauty treatments on offer.
Hivernage is a wealthy, residential area of Marrakech known for its trendy nightclubs and bars. Although Marrakech is famed for its bustling medina, be sure to find time to visit the stunning Menara gardens. Built in the 12th-century, these botanical gardens are filled with olive groves and blossoming orchards, and feature a spectacular, mirror-like artificial lake.
