A verdant oasis of calm away from the bustle of central Marrakech, Domaine des Remparts Ryad Hotel Spa & Golf Resort’s cluster of one-story, terracotta-colored pavilions is grouped around a spacious outdoor swimming pool, green lawns and pretty date palms.
Dominated by a breathtaking Atlas Mountains backdrop, this is a place where it’s easy to savor peace and relaxation among five-star luxury. Interiors follow a desert-toned theme, complemented by dark woods and set off by strategically placed designer accessories. There’s a cocoon-like spa and roomy restaurant, so you can easily pass a lazy day here in between city sightseeing.
Painted in delicious light and dark chocolate hues, Junior suites have striking arched fireplaces and their own private covered terrace and garden. You’ll be able to take your pick from views of either the pool or gardens.
The Asian-inspired restaurant serves traditional Moroccan cuisine packed with Eastern spices, served up in slick high-ceilinged surroundings. There’s a cheery log fire during the winter months. At lunchtime, you can dine al fresco at the shady Le Grill by the pool.
With its candles, incense and flower petals, the spa makes a welcome respite. Cocoon-like treatment rooms offer soothing Nectarome plant oil massages. After you’ve enjoyed the Berber hammam, you could have a volcanic clay wrap or black soap scrub.
The hotel is only two and a half miles from the frenetic heart of Marrakech, in the flat, palm-filled Palmeraie area. The hotel gardens themselves are lush and green, and the lack of surrounding buildings means there are sweeping views over to the often snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Golf enthusiasts can take a break from haggling in the medina by letting it all go on the Royal and Almelkis golf courses, five minutes away by car. Two hours will take you to the beaches of Agadir and the legendary town of Casablanca.
How to Get There
This hotel changed ownership a couple of month ago, the new owner is very dynamic and has great ideas to make this hotel a great place. Nice and big rooms with fireplace looking towards the beautiful garden and the swimming pool. Fitness room with nice equipment. Breakfast is really nice and staff is very friendly and looking after your comfort. Large swimming pool with sun chairs.
We had a really lovely stay for 5 nights. It is about 20 minutes to Marrakech, you can rent a car at the hotel or use the shuttle (3 trip/day to Marrakech).
Me and my brother went on a relaxing break after the stresses of working in the rat race of London. I have to say just what we were after was achieved. I emailed the hotel and the lovely manager Achouak emailed back straight away and managed to satisfy all our requests. Even during the stay she would regularly check on us to ensure we were having an amazing holiday. Hotel facilities are on point everything under one roof. The staff really go out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Even got a custom made cocktail. Big thanks to Achouak and her team.
We had 2 night staying in this place. It was amazing experience of romantic escape in this beautiful and peaceful hotel, with charming and very friendly stuff and beautiful view.
Room is big and very stylish. Also they have big pool
For sure we will be back. Highly recommended
An unforgettable experience.. If I you are looking for a quiet retreat, yet only 15 minutes away from the city center, this is the place. I visited the Hotel with my girlfriend and planned my proposal with the staff in advance. They have exceeded my expectations and gave us a truly memorable time. They are helpful in every way and give their best to fulfill your every wish. I will absolutely come back. Even the smallest rooms are bigger than other hotels biggest. The mattresses are fantastic, we have rarely slept that good. Maybe only in Four Seasons Hotels. All in all simply fantastic.
The hotel, well, it's not really like any hotel you have seen. First of all, it's entrance is fenced off, well protected by a large gate and surrounding wall but on the inside it is so peacefull and quite. The hotel lobby is more something you'll find in some romantic movie far far away. The rooms are all suites; meaning large bathroom, large closets, minibar (no coffee or tea) and a large living room / bedroom. The pool is spacious and long, beds are sometimes plentyfull (depending on the occupancy) with embrallas. The staff is really helpfull, the hotel's taxi drivers really friendly. The only downside is the very, very small breakfast they serve. If you a french or italian, it's more than enough, but if you're used to large european style breakfasts, well, this one is going to be dissapointing. Also to be noted, the hotel is roughly 20 minutes away from djemaa el fna/downtown. The hotel offers its own taxi for +/- 11 euro (120 Dirham) to go one way. The price from downtown to the hotel is +/- 10 euro (100 dirham). Please note that the taxis in Marrakech do not have meters and are always trying to overcharge passengers.
