Decorated in traditional Moroccan style the 27 rooms and suites are set around the courtyard with some of the pricier offering their own little slice of outdoor space and views of the Atlas Mountains, the Koutoubia mosque or the Medina.
Ideally positioned at the foot of the Koutoubia mosque and midway between the Royal Palace and the most famous square in the Medina, Jemaa El-Fna - there are few better spots to base yourself for a visit to Marrakech than Villa des Orangers.
Built in the 1930’s as a private home, the building was lovingly transformed by local craftsmen into the luxe and lovely 27-bedroom hotel it is today. Boasting not one but three swimming pools, a sprawling rooftop with views out to the Atlas mountains, pretty flower-lined patios, a wonderfully opulent spa on site and the most charming service - we’ve a feeling you may struggle to leave...
Due to the riad’s peaceful nature, it is not suited to children below the age of 12.
If you’re here in the hotter months - you’ll be thankful for the three lovely pools that beckon for a cooling dip, though are also heated when needed. A hammam and scrub is one of essential relaxation rituals in Morocco and there are few better spots to experience one than at the spa in Villa des Orangers, after a day spent shopping in the souks or exploring the city. The spa also has treatment rooms scented with rose petals and orange blossom and gorgeous NUXE products are used.
Just a 10-minute walk from Jemaa El-Fna, you’re perfectly placed to explore with many of the sights within strolling distance and others easily accessible via taxi from the hotel’s doorstep.
Eat breakfast and lunch around one of the pools or terraces, or under the shade of the orange trees on the patio. In the evening, dinner in the restaurant brings a mix of typical Moroccan fare and Mediterranean-style influences and is a destination in its own right. It’s worth noting that if youre celebrating a special occasion or would rather have a private dinner party, there are private lounges available.
