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
The hotel is very nice inside but the wi fi is slow, service is not the best, the pool was nice and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was good too but they advertise fresh orange juice and they add water to it so doesn’t taste fresh at all.
We spent a few days in Marrakech with my husband in September and We loved this Hotel. Rooms are large and clean. There are three separate bathroom areas, one for the toilet, another for the shower and another for the bath tub. Our room overlooked the pool and had a lovely balcony with lounge chairs.
Service was excellent and Staff extremely friendly.
The location is perfect for visiting Marrakech by foot as it is just outside the Medina. The pool area is very big and the Pool restaurant offers a great buffet selection. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one night and the food was very good.
Spent a week in Marrakech and was so glad we booked Le Naoura as the location was excellent, the staff were exceptional and the hotel was a relaxing oasis away from the vibrant, bustling city. The room was spacious and very clean, with housekeeping visiting twice a day. We booked a junior suite and our room was on the 1st floor overlooking the amazing large pool. Great pool service if required and the breakfast was excellent, served in the beautiful gardens around the pool - breakfast could also be ordered in your room at no extra charge. Concierge and front desk staff were always charming and helpful, with lots of useful contacts and information. Very happy to recommend this hotel and hope to return one day!
