Villa Des Orangers, Marrakech

Thu, Apr 7, 2011

Northern Africa



Villa Des Orangers is a small opulent hotel that uniquely spoils you in an unassuming Moroccan way. Just like the other hotels in Marrakech, this 5-star sanctuary has an inconspicuous entrance off a road brimming with repair stalls, carts, and bicycles. So, it’s really a wonder to enter this hotel from this road as it is just exciting to lead oneself to a retreat of peace and magnificence. Actually, this is the real charm of this Moroccan city.

Pascal Beherec as well as Véronique has put all their best skills of Moroccan craftsmanship to adorn this palace’s interiors with lots of stunning sofas, gold-threaded pillowcases, and transparent fabrics. And this is soon realized as soon as you keep you bags down. The combination of the basic simplicity and a kind treat of physical pleasures in the Villa Des Orangers offers a lot for your rejuvenation and relaxation. Ice-seeming plasterwork of lattices, gently splashing water fountains, two inner courts, soft slippers, algae soaps, feathery bathrobes, patios and a big garden loaded with plants, three swimming pools, health facilities, a restaurant offering three different cuisines, roof pool in the direction of the Atlas mountains as well as the Koutoubia Mosque, and mint tea at your leisure – it looks like all has been taken care of! Do you need something more?


After all, this is the Relais and Chateaux luxury that is not an ordinary hotel. Being erected in the Riad style, the tower engulfs the mix of the real Moroccan style as well as patterns and the traditional 5-star relief. This is evident from the leather sofas that reside on the stunning tile floors perched in the Moroccan style, walkways that are lighted with lamps below the sculpted lampshades, spa as a traditional Hammam with massage as well as steam room, and mint tea being poured in stylish silverware. If you value ambiance as well as personality, this is certainly the Marrakech’s best! Villa des Orangers is close to the Royal Palace, souks, and the Jemaa-El-Fna square.
