Located a short walk from the famous Jema El Fna square and the Medina, in the heart of the popular residential area of Hivernage, the hotel offers impeccable hospitality and style.

The Sofitel Marrakech offers all the luxuries and amenities that you would expect from this hotelier, with added Moroccan flair. The hotel lobby is a good place to start with highly polished marble floors framed under Moorish arches and flowing drapes. Hundreds of gorgeous white roses line the hallways, off setting the accent flashes of deep reds that can be seen throughout the grounds, from the day beds to the tea sets. Oriental tapestries and paintings decorate the interior as does the familiar scent of orange blossom that envelopes the air inducing a sense of atmosphere.

The guestrooms have a clean design with nudes and beiges, making for a relaxing ambience to rest your head. The Moroccan finishes, such as the filigree headboards and the ornate detailing in the furniture provides plenty of visual interest against the clean backdrop. The bathrooms are modestly sized and come complete with toiletries from Lanvin and Hermès.

The hotel’s So Lounge is regarded highly as one of the city’s nightlife hot spots. They have a good cocktail menu and high quality entertainment. The décor is bolder than in the hotel, as you would expect for a bar, and has a bit of an Ibiza vibe with UV lighting and florescent tinges. The spa is fittingly a calmer affair, offering a large treatment list of the finest quality and encouraging well-being and relaxation to the highest level.

The hotel has four restaurants, overseen by Head Chef Dominique Oudin. We particularly enjoyed L’Orangerie, which offers a lot of rich Moroccan foods, from lamb tagines to sweet cinnamon infused pastillas; the views are pretty impressive as well. For a light bite around the pool head to L’Oasis, catering to everything from salads, burgers and seafood.
