Luxury Hotels in Marrakesh

The first thought that comes to mind when i think about Marrakesh is the city's well renowned square, Jemaa el-Fna. Probably well known for the ultimate Moroccan hang-out and well considered to be the heart beat of Marrakesh. During the day there resides monkeys and snake charmers, hypnotic music, flutes, singing and bizarre melody's with scents of spices channeling through the spiraling streets. This is one exotic place not too far from Europe but in my mind resides much further away from your average western culture.
During the night Marrakesh is a total eclipse from its daylight counter part, with the sound of banging drums, dancing and acrobatics, and the air is filled with the smell of fresh mint tea and freshly cooked Moroccan cosines, never has there been so much culture, colors and activity in one square mile.
In spite of the alluring temptations of the sights, sounds, treasures and gardens that Marrakesh offers, the traveler here may sink into a languorous form of relaxed lethargy just staying at the hotels. Mainly due to the surprising fact that Marrakesh is not just famous for its city square but more so for its exceptionally good luxury hotels which will indeed make travelers feel that a day passed at the hotel's poolside and hammans is far more attracting than embarking out to explore the city itself!

Luxury hotel and resort accommodation in Marrakesh are surprisingly affordable. A five star luxury hotel, which includes the usual pool, Air conditioning and Wi-Fi, offers rates for a junior suite starting at 80 Euros per person per night, including breakfast.
Le Jardines de la Medina
Les Jardins de la Medina used to be a palace that has been successfully converted into a hotel with real elegance and class. Located within walking distance from Jemma al F'na but located within the Kasbah and away from the main hustle and bustle of the medina. The gardens are the highlight of this hotel, beautiful and well maintained gardens provide a good setting to this fashionably elegant hotel. However the beautiful views don't stop with the gardens, once upstairs the views from the terraces are magnificent, with clear views to the Atlas Mountains and the maroon skyline of Marrakech is a site not to be missed. The hotel is French owned, but still maintains the cultural customs of Marrakesh.
Riad Kniza
Riad Kniza was a small family guest house way back in the 18thcentury that has now been restored into a large modernized riad hotel. The hotel is only walking distance from the main attractions of the city, such as the Jemma El Fna square and the exotic souks. Riad Kniza provides to a great starting point to those that wish to settle down and then set a foot to explore the wonders of Marrakesh. As you would expect from a 5 star hotel Riad Kniza boasts 12 Moroccan style decorated suites with Air Conditioning and Wi-Fi. The Moroccan artisan design is strongly apparent throughout the riad and you can all but ponder on the amazing craftsmanship that dates back century's. Upon booking with this hotel there is a nice feature that includes complimentary shuttle service that takes you direct from the airport to the hotel.
Dar Charkia
Dar Charkia located within the Dar el Bacha antiques district; this five-star riad has long been very popular with holidaymakers to Marrakesh. Reasons throughout this hotel can be seen for this, with its luxurious interior, stylish Moroccan style bedrooms, heated swimming pool, mouthwatering Moroccan cuisines and views of the atlas mountains and the maroon Marrakesh skyline.
The original architecture of this hotel dates back hundreds of years however the building has been fully refurbished and added into the mix an authentic blend of North African, Asian and European styles.
The riad itself is set around a colorful central courtyard, which is the main attraction of the hotel itself, which during the hotter months, commands a breeze and shuts out the noise of the central medina. Close to the city centre, this is a perfect start to your journey in Marrakesh
