Marrakech

Take your senses on an exhilarating journey in vibrant Marrakech. From the old-world charm of the Medina, to the glitz and nocturnal buzz of Gueliz and the Palmeraie – discover a new side of the ‘Red City’ around every corner.

Lose yourself in the colours, sounds and smells of Marrakech. Embrace the fascinating chaos of streets filled with dashing donkey carts and whizzing mopeds as you make your way to renowned Djemaa El-Fna square. There, sit back with a cup of refreshing mint tea and take in the menagerie of street vendors, snake charmers and story-tellers. Then follow the aroma of rich spices through labyrinthine alleyways to colourful souks touting everything from saffron to slippers. Or swap souk-haggling for chic boutique-shopping and gallery browsing in the new town. As the sun sets, listen to the captivating cry of the call to prayer while sipping cocktails on a riad roof terrace.

Hivernage

Escape the bustle of the Medina and its labyrinthine streets for the wide, tree-lined avenues and trendy terrace eateries and bars of the Hivernage quarter. Indulge in lavish pampering at the spa of luxury hotels such as the Four Seasons. Then dine on the finest Moroccan and international cuisine at the Red House. Afterwards, sip cocktails while watching belly-dancers sway at the popular Le Comptoir. Or dance to pumping beats among dazzling lights and shimmering glitter balls at Silver.

Palmeraie

Palmeraie

Find respite from the urban crowds in the tranquil Palmeraie. Among the manicured gardens and verdant palm trees that earned this exclusive area its name, stand an abundance of prestigious hotels along with residences of the wealthy and famous. Perfect for luxury holidays in Marrakech, the opulent Taj Palace hotel offers a spectacular location with the majestic Atlas Mountains as its backdrop. Or unwind in the exquisitely beautiful surroundings of the award-winning Palais Namaskar.

Gueliz

Gueliz

With a distinctly modern feel, Gueliz is known as the European quarter of Marrakech. If you need a break from bartering for bargains in the souks of the Medina, make your way here for shopping at luxurious boutiques where prices are fixed.
