Villa des Orangers - Marrakech accommodation - luxury hotel in Morocco
Where: At the foot of the Koutoubia Mosque and a short walk from the famous Djema al-Fna square, it's in an ideal spot for discovering the medina.Renovated with full respect to local traditions, it now comprises 27 rooms and suites that connect to a large garden and 3 patios, each of which is surrounded by galleries of intricately sculpted archways.
The Villa des Orangers was built in the 1930s for a Morrocan judge, who lived in it until the 1990s when a couple of French hoteliers transformed it into a luxury hotel.
Upstairs, each of the suites has a private terrace that overlooks the medina while the rooftops, built between solarium, pool and gardens, offer an unspoilt view of the Atlas mountains.
We love: the large swimming pool and traditional Morrocan hammam.
