Best Hotels in the Palmeraie

Don't fancy the hectic buzz of the medina? Take a twenty minute taxi ride and you’ll find the Beverly Hills of Marrakech, a great palm forest dotted with luxurious hotels and stunning private villas. This is the Palmeraie, and our Gurus know the best hotels in the Palmeraie…

With Marrakech, the trick is to stay in the medina for a few nights before heading to the Palmeraie, the city's answer to a weekend in the country. Here you’ll find majestic views of the Atlas Mountains, herb gardens, spacious rooms and decent sized swimming pools. And to make sure your every comfort is met, use our Guru’s recommendations for the best hotels in the Palmeraie to plan your trip.

The Best Hotels in the Palmeraie for Foodies

  • Dar Zemora is one of the Palmeraie's best kept secrets: it is small and luxurious, with just six beautiful rooms, set in three acres filled with lemon trees and roses. The food is fantastic and indulgent.
  • Also have a look at Villa 55 which offers cooking lessons and excellent organic food.

The Best Hotels in the Palmeraie for Luxury

The Best Hotels in the Palmeraie for Romance

  • Dar Ayniwen is a truly luxury romantic haven. Originally built as a private home, many of the original owner’s treasures still remain. Accommodation is in eight luxury suites, four in the main house and four scattered around the beautiful gardens.

The Best Hotels in the Palmeraie for Eco-Friendly Values

  • Les Cinq Djellabas is a great alternative to the riads of Marrakech: an eco friendly hotel, with views of the Atlas mountains. Accommodation is in ten African eco-lodges dotted around the palm, banana and olive filled gardens.
