In the city’s leafy Palmeraie district, a four-mile drive from the bustle of the medina, Hotel Les Deux Tours oozes relaxed sophistication, combining traditional Moroccan architecture (arched doors, blue tiling and mosaic floors) with contemporary design. The 37 decadent guestrooms are individually designed and feature earth tone walls, pale blue window shutters, carved wooden headboards and traditional tiles. Splurge on a Residence Suite to have your own private pool and terrace. The bathrooms are sumptuous and soothing; there are sunken tubs in some of the suites, and all come with eco-friendly toiletries. The grounds are spectacular: Huge four-poster daybeds are dotted around the pool and the Andalusian-style gardens, while the luxe spa offers Moroccan treatments and a traditional hammam. Tuck into French and Moroccan-inspired cuisine (spicy tagines, succulent sharing plates and vegetable briouates) at Le Salammbo, or dine on light bites and BBQ dishes at the poolside La Pergola. In the evening, recline on an oversize cushion at the lounge bar, which serves cocktails, wines and local teas. The dishes and cocktails are flavored with herbs and vegetables grown on-site.
In the Area
Take a day to visit the medina. Wander the souks, take in Jemaa el-Fna Square and make time for the 16th-century Ben Youssef Madrasa — which has Islamic designs that give Granada’s Alhambra a run for its money — and the vast, eerie ruins of the Badi Palace, on the outskirts of the medina. After wandering the labyrinth of streets, take a moment to catch your breath at the Jardin Majorelle, the stunning personal gardens of Yves Saint Laurent, which have been turned into a living museum. An evening at the Megarama Cinema, beside the Almazar, gives you a fascinating glimpse into modern Moroccan life. To immerse yourself entirely, see a film in Arabic — the comedies are so slapstick you don’t need to understand the words. Run entirely by women and set in a traditional house complete with pretty gardens, Al Fassia Aguedal is one of the best traditional restaurants in Marrakech.
How to Get There
We booked a Jr. Suite with the private pool and stayed for 3 nights. The room we booked was nice, clean, roomy, and comfortable. I was kind of disappointed with their breakfast. The food was okay. Location of the hotel is a little far from the center, but it's good because it is more quiet and less traffic which I like. If you want to have camel rides, they are just a few streets down. Staff in the hotel was nice and friendly. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Les Deux Tours.
Amazing setting with gardens to wander, it really feels like an oasis away from the bustle of the city. Lovely peaceful rooms. Ive stayed here a couple of times and rooms vary but if you can get one with a balcony or private garden do. Staff are great plus the breakfast is delicious especially the pancakes. Thanks
Les Deux Tours is simply fantastic in every way. The service is second to none. If you want a stunning hotel which is beautiful but is unique rather than looking like any other 5 star hotel, look no further! The grounds and gardens are beautiful and it feels like a Moroccan Palace. The food is excellent but the most wonderful bit is the pool. It is a peaceful hotel, not suitable for large noisy groups. They provide a free shuttle bus, three times a day into Marrakesh which is really helpful. We loved looking at the little terrapins in the many pretty pools, sunbathing. The directer general, Eros Abraile, was so welcoming and would make any adjustments to make your stay even more comfortable. We needed help at the last minute and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly return to Marrakesh and would only stay at this hotel - you can't beat it!
