La Villa des Orangers

A splendid Relais et Châteaux riad just outside the walls of Marrakesh’s medina, Villa des Orangers cocoons guests in refined Moroccan opulence. A series of beautiful patios, pools, and blooming gardens invite lingering and contemplation over a cup of traditional mint tea, while a luxurious spa takes visitors back to the magic of ancient Orient with ancestral rituals and an imperial hammam.

Rooms at this luxury 5-star hotel are nothing short of sublime, surrounding guests in lavish fabrics, bold colors, and stunning hand-carved furnishings. All units are magnificently appointed with Smart TVs, Nespresso coffee machines, and minibars, and some of them boast separate living rooms and private terraces overlooking the mighty Atlas Mountains.

There’s also a handsome private riad with its own inner courtyard and shaded swimming pool, as well as a gorgeous indoor/outdoor restaurant serving traditional Moroccan cuisine with a creative twist.
