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
Paradise ...This is a must see & stay hotel, the staff is at your disposal at any time, the grounds are beautiful and the chefs prepare the most amazing dishes I have tasted.
Each room is different in its own unique way. It is quite paradise tucked away in Morocco !
What a wonderful place for a break. We were blown away by the hotel, the architecture and the level of culinary professionalism. Quite honestly we had not expected to eat as well as we did when booking this stay. Having been to various other small hotels in Morocco, we were very pleasantly surprised.
The staff are lovely, the gardens are captivating and the level of comfort in our delightful room was really a lovely surprise considering the low price. I would certainly recommend this place to others looking for a smart but down to earth place to spend a few days away from it all. We did go into the city twice and had a great time. The free shuttle bus form the hotel and back was excellent and we were fortunate enough to meet some lovely people whilst there. Definitely recommend the hammam too. What a relaxing experience. All in all, couldn’t have been better.
We were recently staying at Les Deux Tours again during the week when the problematic group mentioned in other posts were there. I feel really sorry for the staff at the hotel as the the review from one of their group is outrageous considering the behaviour of the children and the total lack of control by the parents and lack of consideration for other guests.
We are regular guests and have stayed on multiple occasions in recent years and I can only say that I feel very sad for the hotel as they really had an unmanageable group of several families together who behaved appallingly during those few days. We have on many occasions been at Les Deux Tours when there have been multiple families with children who were adorable and well behaved. This group however appear to have been on a mission to upset everyone sharing the space with them. The staff were clearly in a very difficult situation as the group were taking up more than half of the hotel but acted as though they were alone and that no-one else mattered.
Our stay was definitely compromised by this groups presence but the hotel continued to do all they could to make our stay as good as possible. The food was as always fantastic, the service diligent and the place itself as magical as always. Ignore the review(s) from that group as I wouldn’t take advice form people who clearly haven’t a clue as to how to behave and how to enjoy a total gem of a hotel.
Several friends had recommended we stay in Les Deux Tours rather than a riad in the city, and we were not disappointed. Our mini suite hid behind its blue door, and was set in a secret garden. The room was cool but had a slight whiff of fresh paint, as we were told it had recently been converted into a suite from a room (by adding on an alcove). The bathroom was huge and the verbena toiletries are simply lovely. After a hot day in town, using the good-value hotel pickup and drop-off service, LDT was a welcome refuge for a cooling swim and a cocktail before either venturing out for dinner again or eating in their attractive garden restaurant. Breakfasts were delicious, but I was underwhelmed by the Thai food, which needed a good dollop of fish sauce and chilli! The local dishes were obviously first-rate, and service overall impeccable. The grounds and gardens are simply gorgeous. My only slight reservation as an older person is the number of small children we encountered, some of whom were less well-behaved and noisier than others. But that's not the hotel's fault. The hammam provided a good escape and left us feeling scrubbed and glowing. The hotel also organised and excellent day-trip to the Atlas mountains which i recommend. All in all a fabulous refuge for a five-day break and so easy to get to form London.
a short flight from home and you are in a new world, a warm welcome, a beautiful garden, a relaxing suite with pool, a delicious dinner
