An ochre-walled compound arranged around a lushly landscaped central pool, this luxury spa hotel is a world unto itself with hammams, butler service and a choice of two restaurants (Fouquet’s Marrakech is a French brasserie that also serves Moroccan specialties while the pool-restaurant, Le Wardya, is known for its buffets of international fare). Choose from 78 rooms (all with their own terrace), seven larger suites and 26 over-the-top ryads (three- to seven-bedroom complexes inspired by local palaces, each with its own private pools and gardens).
In the Area
With the hotel located just outside the gates of the Medina — the world’s original shopping mecca — you’re perfectly placed to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the spice and craft stalls. Culture vultures can walk to two historic mosques (the Mouassine and the Koutoubia, the largest in Morocco), Dar El Bacha palace, the Majorelle botanical gardens and Jemaa el-Fna Square, Marrakech’s main plaza. Hotel staff will also arrange car excursions for golf, tennis or fishing and to visit desert sand dunes or the boho seaside city of Essaouira.
How to Get There
Hotel is centrally located. It is within walking distance to many attractions. Very clean and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bar, pool staff and restaurant staff were especially nice.
Spa services were great!
We booked this hotel for our 4 day stay in Marrakech. Spacious rooms overlooking the pool. Really friendly staff and great variety of breakfast, the chef makes fresh omlettes for you daily. We would sit outside for breakfast near the pool area. Great location as mostly everything is in walking distance, the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Koutoubia mosque and souk, as well as all the bars, clubs and restaurants. Enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend!
We had a great stay at Riad Lavande. Our host Fatima was amazing. She helped us in every way possible. Breakfast was good, rooms were spacious. We had an early check-in and a late check-out which was no problem. The room wasn't ready at check-in but they served us free breakfast during the wait. You can use the facilities (for us just the pool) from the hotel, which is very convenient.
