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 stayed for a week in October with two small kids (2&4) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The place was perfect for children and there were a lot of children around (it was half term in the uk). Everyone was very child friendly but the place still felt peaceful enough for couples.
The grounds are well kept, with gardens, lots of ponds and hidden courtyards. Our children loved watching the goats (in an enclosure), frogs, turtles and peacocks. There is lots of space for them to run around.
We stayed in room 23 and were happy. It had an internal courtyard and a seperate sleeping area for the kids. It‘s more rustic luxury than flawless - some of the doors were antique and couldn‘t be closed properly, but we found this only added to the charm of the place.
The food at breakfast was okay, with fruit, bread, eggs to order, musli and some cakes. The coffee though really needs improvement. Lunch wasn‘t amazing. They had a good burger and club sandwich but the other items need improvement and more variety. It got very repetitive after a few days. For dinner we ate out most nights, because the food at the hotel didn‘t convince us.
The location is good, a 15 minute taxi drive to the medina. Nice and peaceful and the taxis were easy to book and were 100 mad during the day and 150 mad at nighttime.
The concierge was extremely helpful and booked all the restaurants for us and we changed our mind quite frequently and they didn‘t seem to mind.
The pool gets quite busy but there are other areas in the garden where you can relax with a book. And we were therw wehn they were fully booked.
All in all, we would definitely come back and the only negative we found was the food. But if you are planning to eat in the medina then this won‘t put a damper on your stay.
I first came across the Hotel when I went for a pool day and lunch and fell in love with the hotel the tranquility is perfect and I was so so relaxed I returned the next week alone to stay for 3nights. The location is away from the hussel and bussel which is great.
I had a single room which was comfortable clean and peaceful.
The pool is perfect so quiet and peaceful, no noise no music just totally relaxing.
Lunch and dinner menus were faultless, cocktails were very nice, the service is spot on.
A free shuttle bus takes you to the Medina and back which is great.
I can't wait to return this is one of my favourites on Marrakech
Back again for a few days. This wonderful hotel just keeps getting better. As usual, the staff were superb, the breakfast delicious (especially the omlettes) and dinner on the terrace excellent. The pool is the pièce de résistance though. Tranquil and perfect for relaxing and having a decompress from the world's madness.
We had a room with two terraces, spacious and a bed that could fit 10 people in it!
Nothing was too much trouble and when we return to Marrakesh we will only stay at this hotel - you can't beat it!
