Kech Boutique Hotel & Spa offers a luxurious base in the heart of Marrakech, inviting the most discerning of travelers to enjoy this vibrant capital in style. Inside, the décor is fresh and contemporary while showcasing unmistakable Moroccan flavor. Stylish bedrooms surround the sun-drenched terrace, where shaded sun loungers and a large pool create the perfect desert oasis.
The hotel’s services will keep you comfortable, too. Enjoy light bites and refreshing cocktails at the poolside bar, choose from an international menu of exquisite dishes at the restaurant, and order a nightcap at the bar before turning in for the evening. Of course there’s more to life than food and drink, so make sure to save some time for a trip (or two or three) to the luxe spa. Book yourself a pampering massage or beauty treatment, or simply let your stress melt away in the steam room.
Suitably refreshed, it’s time to explore the city’s sights – wow your senses at Jemaa El Fna Square, admire the incredible architecture of the regal palaces, and pick up a bargain in the souks. You can also venture outside the city, with trips to the nearby Atlas Mountains or a bit of off-roading on the dunes – if you can tear yourself away from your luxe retreat, that is.
Good to know
Please note that a city tax of 16.50 MAD (approximately $1.63) per person, per day is payable directly to the hotel upon check-out.
Deluxe Double rooms cover a spacious 430 square feet and feature elegant, modern décor, en-suite bathrooms and balconies overlooking the pool and sun terrace. Along with contemporary comforts, they’re also soundproofed for a peaceful night’s sleep.
The hotel’s Lateral restaurant serves an international menu, and you’ll also find a buffet breakfast here each morning. The pool-facing Patio snack bar provides snacks, cocktails and refreshments throughout the day, and Barrakech bar opens nightly for cocktails and tapas.
Kech Spa is a serene, intimate haven dedicated to wellness and beauty. You can treat yourself to a traditional skin-smoothing scrub in one of the Moorish hammams or book a massage after a day of sightseeing. A session in the tranquil steam room is also a excellent way to unwind.
The hotel sits in the south of Morocco’s unforgettable city of Marrakech, adjacent to the Agdal Gardens, where groves of orange, lemon, fig, apricot and pomegranate trees are linked by olive-tree-lined paths. Culture, history and shopping go hand in hand in this city, so start your experience at the famous UNESCO-listed Jemaa El Fna Square. It’s a 10-minute taxi ride away, and you can always walk there to get a taste of city life on foot.Grab a snack as you check out the colorful entertainment, or disappear into one of the bustling souks for leather, ceramic and bejeweled treasures. You’ll also find Bahia Palace close by, and the Royal Palace is just a five-minutes taxi ride from the hotel – both being two of the city’s must-sees.
How to Get There
If your looking for a clean hotel with good food and polite, attentive staff look no further than the Kech. Breakfast is great with loads of choice. Its location couldn't be better, its on the outskirts of the main town so no noisy traffic! The pool although cold is spotlessly clean, is cleaned daily and has the sun from around 10am
If your going to play some golf as I did, then its not far from the golf clubs which are all in great condition.
I Stayed three nights in January 2019 while on a business trip in Marrakesh. I’ll start with the positives: Hotel is in a good location and breakfast is tasty and plentiful. Unfortunately the hotel had a really odd vibe , visually tired with worn carpets in corridors and guest actively smoking the lobby areas . Heating wasn’t great, so frankly the rooms were freezing cold which made our stay very uncomfortable. Lastly hotel staff entered our room twice on the evening without announcing themselves . Which just made the hotel feel unsafe . All round not a great impression and I wouldn’t return .
Where do I begin…AMAZING AND LUSH!!!! I’ve never written a review before, but I felt the need to write one on the experience I had at this hotel. Firstly, if it wasn’t for this hotel my best friend’s birthday experience in Morocco would have been ruined! After an awfully deceitful hotel in the Souk we frantically called Kech Boutique & Spa to see if they had a room available to check into straight away - bearing in mind it was 1 am but the amazing receptionist Soufiane told us it was fine, they had one suite left and to come straight away. As we arrived late, we were given a complimentary additional hour’s checkout (1 PM). We had the benefit of staying in two rooms - the suite and a triple room and I can honestly say the difference between the two is just the lounge area. In the suite, you have two rooms one with the bed, wardrobe, television, small sofa, bathroom, and balcony - the other with a lovely L-shaped sofa, television, and toilet.
The hotel was a breath of fresh air! From the exterior, I knew I arrived at a luxurious hotel and the vintage car parked outside added great character – also a good background for pictures. The decor was lovely and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get, no deceit! The concierge carried our luggage into the room, the staff were very friendly and accommodating especially Younes and Sofiane, always willing to tend to our needs and when we returned from nights out, they were genuinely intrigued to know how our night went and if we enjoyed ourselves. No language barriers with the main staff, housekeeping mostly only spoke the native language though. The complimentary “handy” phone is a great feature to the hotel rooms since the rates set by our mobile providers were ridiculous, and we genuinely felt safer going out knowing if we needed to call anyone or find directions, we could use the phone free of charge. The breakfast was amazing!! (Currently reminiscing about the fruit salad!) A great selection to choose from as well as the staff assisting you and topping up your glass when needed. Great balcony area located on the first floor for pictures!
Oh, and the spa!!!! AMAZING and reasonably priced! Side note: When they say full body, they mean full body breasts included! The shopping centre “Carrefour” was a 10-minute walk away which was reasonable for the little bits and bobs but would suggest the Menara Mall as there’s more choice (10-minute drive). The location of the hotel was ideal and in a 10-15-minute drive from all the restaurants and attractions - however the taxi’s…HAGGLE, HAGGLE, HAGGLE!! It was only until the third day when we met a lovely man who told us we were being completely ripped off and taxi’s 10-15 minutes away should only be costing a maximum of 50 Dirham, not 150!!!!!!! After finding out this intel we told the drivers our price before the journeys and they often agreed - if they said no we walked away but they shortly changed their minds - this also applies to the taxis booked by the hotel, although they order their taxis from the English equivalent of “Addison Lee” but it should still not be any more than 50-60 Dirham. Would suggest visiting “So lounge” excellent DJ caters for everyone and the entire strip is incredible including live music, casino, and shisha bars.
To conclude, the only con I can honestly give is…the pool was cold, but I assume during the hotter seasons the sun naturally heats the pool. Other than that, everything about the hotel was lush, we all enjoyed ourselves and if we were to return to Morocco, Kech Boutique and Spa would be our first choice! Sadly, the only pictures I have are from once we started using the room – hence the mild mess - I just wished I took more decent pictures instead of videos to post on here to support this review! Oh, and Soufiane the receptionist, what a handsome and charming guy! Honestly a lovely soul and always welcoming with a big beautiful smile.
I stayed here a few weeks ago with my family, it was really lovely. The staff were very helpful and very attentive. The location was suitable for us as we like to walk and do not mind paying for taxis, however if you want to be more central this isn't the best hotel. There were shops and a few restaurants close by, really nice ice cream parlor next door too. Breakfast was included and was really lovely, very varied which suited us. My mum is on a diet (on holiday ha), and she wasn't disappointed with the food. I'm also allergic to some things and they catered to my needs. The Rooms were lovely and clean and the pool area was great. They have a gym, big enough to do a 40 minute work out which is always nice.
I took my mum on a 3 night holiday with shuttle transfer to this hotel in Morocco. From the minute that we arrived at this hotel, you were welcomed by concierge who picked up your luggage for you. Receptionists were very welcoming, helpful, and approachable.Nothing was too much trouble for them.Hotel decor was so stunning and inviting. Exactly matching to the photo's you see on the website. All this notion that the staff could not speak English? Wrong,on our stay all staff understood us perfectly. We booked bed and breakfast, breakfast was amazing. My mum loved the breakfast option that was on offer. And in honesty? First time in a long time that I saw my mum ate with content! On to the swimming pool,it was cold,so it was unfortunate that I was unable to take a dip in the pool.But that did not put a dampen on our holiday. All the main attractions are not too far from the hotel. But to get there you would need a taxi. Beware guys, the taxi drivers are known to con you. A 15 min drive or less, they charge u extortionate price of at least 40-70. You haggle with them but they insist on you paying the price they expect. No fixed price liKe you would find in the UK.taxi.Around the corner from the hotel, literally a 5 minute walk, there is a mall which has familiar food places mcdonald’s, domino’s and numerous exchange currency offices that allow you to exchange your money. Hotel was airy spacious luxurious looking,the bed's were sooo comfy both my mum and I felt like it was the best sleep we had in ages!The whole hotel room we stayed in was so luxurious, the bathroom. Lovely heating. The room service was lovely. My mum enjoyed the tasty desserts!
In conclusion we will be coming back at some point in the future!
