Endless olive groves and jasmine trees lend a distinctly Garden of Eden-like feel to this bewitching resort, a hushed expanse in otherwise frenetic Marrakech. At this walled hideaway, replete with Moorish arcades and courtyards, romance is practically a prerequisite. Paths are dotted with dainty tea lights, the air seems perpetually scented with rose and orange blossom, and there’s even an onsite champagne bar. Dial up the euphoria at the spa (which includes a couples’ suite) where the black salt exfoliations, saffron scrubs, and milk baths might leave you so relaxed that all you can manage afterwards is a lazy meal—a succession of creatively reimagined Moroccan classics— before retiring to your villa, which the staff light with flickering lanterns.
Each of the 54 villas here is astonishingly private and comes with its own pool, Jacuzzi, and outdoor shower. The signature villas are modeled after miniature riads and swathed in a royal fusion of cream and mahogany, with latticework screens and infinity pools lined with black zellij tiles.
Herbivores flock to the Pool Garden for its Mediterranean veggie-centric dishes, best enjoyed outdoors—but evening meals are a must at Mes’Lalla, where a Paul Bocuse-trained chef offers a visionary take on Maghreb staples like pastilla and tagine.
You’d never know you’re just a 20-minute drive from the chaotic city center, a lively square that teems with snake charmers, henna artists, and live musicians. Other easily accessible landmarks include the Majorelle Garden, a 12-acre botanical paradise and archaeological museum. The property is just 15 minutes from Marrakech Menara International Airport.
How to Get There
My wife and I celebrated our wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Marrakech last Sunday. We slept there for two nights, had the welcome cocktail and the Gala dinner. We have not enough word to explain how warmly, professionally and efficiently we have been treated. Everything was perfect with high standards of set up, quality and kindness.
Our special thanks goes to the Event Manager KAMAR, to the Food and Beverage Manager ALI, to all the personnel and obviously to the General Management. All of them made our wedding really special and unforgettable. I can extend our thanks from all of our guests that are not stopping from sending us their happiness for a dream party at Mandarin Oriental. THANK YOU!!!!
Great cocktails, great food and staff were so friendly and attentive. If you're in Marrakech and feel like Chinese food, then make this a priority. We are staying at the fairmont royal palm and went to the Italian in La Mamounia last night and between the two, this is your best bet. Really loved it.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom oriental villa. Simply stunning to say the least.
The grounds of the hotel are absolutely gorgeous. The Spa is super luxurious. The restaurants are not great but breakfast is a must.
We visited all the top rated hotels in Marrakech, however MO beats them all hands down.
