La Maison Arabe

Morocco, Marrakech

Good for Couples

Established in the 1930s by two French women, La Maison Arabe’s restaurant soon became the place to see and be seen, including visitors such as Winston Churchill, Jackie Kennedy and Queen Ingrid of Denmark. After an extensive renovation, La Maison Arabe re-opened in 1997 as the first riad hotel in Marrakech, boasting 26 luxurious rooms and suites. Located in the heart of the historic medina, the hotel offers its guests two gourmet restaurants, an intimate piano bar, relaxing swimming pool and spa & wellness centre. Guests wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the medina can take advantage of the complimentary shuttle bus and visit the hotel’s Country Club, offering a swimming pool, restaurant and access to three golf courses, all in a relaxed setting, surrounded by luxurious gardens.

About the location
Marrakech’s beauty is as distinctive as it gets – minarets, mosaics and the fountains of riad courtyards, all set against the backdrop of the snow-tipped Atlas Mountains. One of Morocco’s most important cities, Marrakech fuses Arabic and African to form a fascinating cultural capital.
Its pulsating heart is Djemaa el-Fna, a big square set on the edge of the old city. Here you’ll find rows of open-air food stalls (try the melt-in-your-mouth lamb tagine or seafood brought in from Essaouira that morning), while jugglers, snake charmers and belly dancers put on a show.
For souvenir shopping, go traditional. The aromas and vibrant colours of the souks are the classic snapshot of Marrakech. The labyrinth of stalls sells bags of aromatic spices, hand-beaded slippers and delicate jewellery, with different souks specialising in different goods. Start at Souk Semmarine, which sells an intriguing mix of everything – but don’t forget to haggle...
Transfer time
15 minutes from Marrakech airport.
