Protected within the medina of Marrakesh, Villa des Orangers is simultaneously close to the city hubbub and surrounded by peace. Embrace both sides of the city from the refined comforts of this celebrated accommodation.
Villa des Orangers was built as a private home in the 1930s. Before opening as a hotel, the property underwent an extensive nine-month renovation led by the finest artisans in Marrakesh. What has emerged from their hard work is a vision of old-world splendor and modern magnificence worthy of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux brand.
Across its 27 rooms and suites Villa des Orangers evokes the grandeur and distinct aura of traditional Moroccan style. Gleaming tiles, intricate geometry, hand-carved timber, and thoughtfully-placed stone bedeck each accommodation. The private abodes with terraces enjoy views of either the Koutoubia Mosque, the Atlas Mountains beyond the city, or the medina activity. Other rooms and suites overlook either the pool and garden, or the peaceful courtyard with its fragrant orange trees and bubbling fountain.
Guests in search of enhanced seclusion should consider the private riad at Villa des Orangers. Its two suites, common living area, and generous patio with a private pool comprise an indulgent retreat within a retreat.
Dine al fresco in the shade of the garden or cozy up next to a fireplace inside at the Villa des Orangers restaurant. The menu has been kept true to Moroccan cuisine and its reputation for liberal combinations of spices and signature flavorful dishes. Days always begin with breakfast, served in your room if you wish, and intriguing lunches and dinners keep you satisfied.
The Nuxe Spa offers a variety of traditional treatments within its separate massage rooms. In the marble hammam, guests may indulge in cleansing rituals that are equal parts spiritual and sumptuous. Of course, the fragrances from orange blossoms and rose petals add to the sensory experience.
Beyond the medina walls, Marrakesh unveils her mysteries and her proud heritage. Explore with your Ker & Downey guide to see the Koutoubia Mosque just footsteps away, the vibrant souks, and the frenetic Jemaa El Fna square. When your senses have filled, return to the calm of Villa des Orangers to recharge, ready to continue the journey again.Request Information
