A five-star luxury riad in Marrakech, Villa des Orangers is a member of Relais & Chateaux and has a prime location in the medina, just a stone’s throw from the bustling Djemaa el Fna square.
Behind the heavy cedar door lies the calm luxury and chic interiors of a boutique hotel, with 27 rooms and suites and one private two bedroomed riad that is ideal for families, all arranged around a trio of typical Arabian courtyards. Two of the courtyards, with their orange trees and fountains, make ideal places for a refreshing break from sightseeing or shopping, while a third contains a decent sized swimming pool and gardens.
All the rooms are air-conditioned and come with marble bathrooms, and some of the suites have private sun terraces. On the roof terrace are sunbeds and a smaller pool, with panoramic views of the medina, Koutoubia mosque and the Atlas Mountains.
Breakfast is served in one of the courtyards or by the pools, and the gastronomic restaurant offers Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. There is a small bar and also a 24-hour non-alcoholic bar offering mint tea, Moroccan pastries and soft drinks. Other facilities include a cigar cellar, concierge service and traditional lounges with a fireplace during the winter months.
The Spa Nuxe has five treatment rooms where guests can enjoy a range of massages and facials, and there is also a traditional hammam steam room.
