“Romantic, tranquil and stylish gem surrounded by beautiful gardens in the heart of the Palmeraie”
There are just 3 Suites and 3 Standard Rooms. All have customary finishes like tadelakt walls, hand-painted zouak ceilings and stone bejmat floors covered with Moroccan rugs, plus a mix of Moroccan furniture and furnishings, both traditional and contemporary. Paintings by local artists adorn the walls, and the feel is elegant manor house rather than modern minimalist hotel.
Standard rooms have large marble bathtubs and showers (some over the bath, others with separate cubicles), small safes, iPods, phones, bathrobes, air-conditioning and central heating; two, Mecila and Bebra, can be twinned.
For extra privacy and space, book one of the Suites, which feature four-poster beds, sitting areas with cosy fireplaces, large terraces, and the added bonus of WiFi. The top-floor Perla Suite has a big roof terrace where you can laze on daybeds in the shade of wafting white curtains; the dramatic ground-floor Zahara Suite has its own shaded garden terrace by the pool. The Pavillion Pool Suite is a separate house in the gardens, with 2 double bedrooms (1 can be twin-bedded) with terraces, 2 bathrooms (enamel rather than marble tubs), a large living room, a dining terrace and a private pool.
Breakfast is simple but delicious: freshly squeezed juice (often with fruit from the garden), fruit salad, eggs and homemade traditional pancakes. An afternoon pot of tea and a slice of cake are also included in the nightly rate.
A 2-course lunch is available daily, and in the evening dinner is served at 8.30pm. The cuisine on offer is modern Moroccan, with a more traditional feast on Sundays, and local produce is used wherever possible; there's also a selection of the best Moroccan wines to choose from. If you're arriving late on your first day, a light supper can be pre-arranged.
Meals can be served wherever you want - on your private terrace, on the dining terrace overlooking the ornamental pool, in the elegant dining room (perfect for cooler evenings or special occasions), or at the poolside.
After a day at the medina, this is essentially a place for rest and relaxation.
Children of all ages are welcome, as long as they are well behaved and respect the other guests' privacy. However, the property is not considered particularly suitable for toddlers and pre-school children due to the steps, smooth bejmat flooring and open, unsupervised swimming pool.
Teens (over 12)
Baby cots can be added to Standard Room Mecila, the Zahara Suite and the Pavilion Pool Suite; the latter has 2 bedrooms and so works well for families. The Zahara Suite and Pavilion Pool Suite can also take an extra bed.
Babysitting is available on request.
Baby cots and highchairs are available on request (free of charge).
Remember baby and child equipment may be limited or need pre-booking
