Le Petit Hotel du Flouka is a charming lakeside retreat just a 45-minute drive from the heart of Marrekech, which means it’s a tranquil haven of peace within relatively easy reach of the city center. This lovely hideaway embraces Berber tradition with gusto, but has a certain European je ne sais quoi, thanks to the touches of its French owner.
At this sumptuous abode, you can dine under the olive trees at the hotel restaurant, where owner and chef Jean-Charles serves up homemade French and international cuisine, using fresh seasonal ingredients. Take a dip in the heated swimming pool, which boasts spectacular mountain views, or just relax in the small, cozy lounge or out on the shady terraces, where you can take in panoramic vistas.
When you feel like venturing out and exploring this exotic locale, you’ll find plenty of ways to do so, from adrenaline-pumping pursuits, like quad biking or buggying, to more-relaxed options, like golfing, walking and horseback riding.
Suites are spacious and fuse a contemporary aesthetic with rustic, Moroccan charm. The Lakeview suite comes with an open fireplace in the corner, plus a private terrace that affords wonderful views over the water.
Amenities- En-suite bathroom- Large private terrace- Open fire- Flat-screen TV with TNT channels- Air conditioning
Le Flouka restaurant is an atmospheric space with both inside and outside areas to enjoy. Homemade French and international dishes are served here, all using the best of the season’s freshest ingredients. Pick a pew in the shade under the olive trees as the sun descends, or opt for candle-list calm amid the rustic interiors.
Le Petit Hotel du Flouka is situated a 45-minute drive south of Marrakech and sits on the banks of Lake Takerkoust, on the skirts of the Atlas Mountains. The area offers plenty of activities, such as quad biking, buggy excursions and mountain biking, as well as horse riding and hiking. There are five golf courses located within a 30-minute drive of the hotel.
How to Get There
Le Flouka is a nice place if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The hotel/restaurant is beautifully situated overlooking the Lalla Takerkoust Lake.
Our room was spacious, clean and decorated very tastefully, although the terrace was dirty and tired. The interior is a mix of traditional Moroccan items combined with a more modern African style.
I was disappointed with the restaurant as prior to arriving I was emailed by Christian prior to arriving regarding any dietary requirements for our evening meal. As my daughter is vegetarian, he advised that a Vegetarian Tagine could be prepared for her. That evening when the main courses arrived, my daughter was given a BEEF Tagine – hardly suitable for a vegetarian!. When Christian was advised of this – he advised that he would speak to the Chef and organise a Vegetarian Tagine for her, which he did. This eventually arrived as a Tagine with carrots and courgettes (hardly imaginative for a Chef !).
The following evening, my meal was not particularly inspiring and the fish was incredibly dry.
On the Sunday the “Beautiful People from Marrakesh” arrived for Sunday Lunch and took over the hotel !
Overall it was an ok couple of nights but I would suggest more attention from the kitchen and more attention to detail , ie sweeping up and replacing some of the tired outside balcony furniture.
The first thing that strikes you when you arrive in Le Flouka is the view
We stayed there for few days with a group for a yoga retreat and we have to say that this place rocks
Super quiet place on the lake, room are simple but spacious and are all different, food in restaurant is good and the staff is just super nice
Thank you to Christian the director and jean-Charles the owner for making us feel at home
we will definitely come back
We can only repeat what other guests have already stated. The hotel is in a lovely location with amazing views of the mountains. We had a comfortable room if a little compact but fine for two nights. The outdoor dining and bar area all face the fabulous view where we enjoyed lovely food and drinks. Dinner was indoors by the fireside and was also very good. We spent time on the sun deck by a heated pool and walked by the lake. Lovely! Thank you to Christian who was really helpful and to all the other staff who make Le Flouka really worth a visit. We do hope to return.
We had late lunch at Le Flouka. We were on a day trip to the Atlas Mountain (Imlil) and had a late lunch at Le Flouka. It is a gem of a place! Excellent location with great views over the surrounding landscape.
The staff were very courteous and the food was excellent. The vegetables were fresh and meat was very well cooked.
Overall very happy with the lunch and would highly recommend this place!
On arrival at Le Petit Flouka I was blown away with what was hidden by the old wooden door, an oasis only 35 minutes from Marrakech.
Christian the manager met us on arrival and showed us to our clean simply decorated rooms which I adored. The main eating area and bar overlooked the lake such a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a drink or two. Christian and his team were very attentive infact Christian went above and beyond to help us with bus tickets etc for the next leg of our trip. The food was a mix of french and moroccan with rather large portions with a good choice daily. Breakfast again was plentiful no need to rush as it operated until 11am. Le Petit Flouk offered two pools of which one was heated, the poolside loungers comfortable with great shading from the Moroccan sun. I enjoyed my stay immensely and would not hesitate on returning.
