Marrakech is a city like no other, with its hot and heady souk markets, intricate architecture, spacious gardens, hidden magical Riads, and cuisine that cannot be rivalled – it’s sure to be at the top of anyone’s bucket list.
Just in case you weren’t sure what to visit during your stay, the Djemaa el-Fna square is definitely Number 1, especially when the night falls. Street vendors and cobra tamers stand side by side under the Atlas mountains, as both steam and magic rises into the warm air. The Majorelle Gardens are also a must-visit, designed and owned by the famous designer Yves St Laurent – the contrast of colours on both the buildings and plants is truly a sight to be seen. The stunning Saadian Tombs are a prime example of true Moroccan architecture, with vibrant mosaic tiles, intricate carvings and Arabic scripts.
Your Luxury Marrakech stay – live like kings and queens!
Of course, you’ll need somewhere to stay during your trip to Marrakech, and why not go all out with this absolutely PALATIAL hotel I found on Trivago. The Hotel Palais Namaskar (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor) is truly one of a kind, and will make your holiday a cut above the rest.
It is a 25 minute drive from the centre of the old Medina, and 30 minutes from Marrakech Menara airport. This fabulous hotel features an outdoor swimming pool with sunbeds, wellness centre and limousine service. There is also a tour desk, laundry and ironng service, luggage storage, and room service. Each room is extremely luxurious and includes an ensuite bathroom with both shower and bath. For when you’re feeling a little peckish, there is a great onsite restaurant that serves a mix of international and local dishes and an American breakfast is served each morning at the property. I have included some example return flights from London Stansted into Marrakech Menara – with prices starting from just £28 return! You don’t have to fly from London though, just select your favourite airport and off you go. Happy flying!
