More on Marrakech

Marrakech, sometimes known as Marrakesh, is a town built for exploring. Split into the older Medina and the more modern Gueliz – or 'new town', the Red city has an abundance of historic attractions to offer the discerning traveller.

The Medina provides cultural thrills, whilst around the outskirts of the city guests will find a beautiful backdrop to relax in.

By Day

The Jeema El Fna is the cultural heartbeat of Marrakech and is a must see when visiting the city. Explore the open-air market and its fascinating stalls where an exciting myriad of musicians, local artists and fantastic food awaits.

Elsewhere guests can escape from it all and experience one of the world’s finest spa cultures. Try an authentic Hamamm or head to a luxurious local spa for complete relaxation.

By Night

Marrakech is a city that comes to life at night, with the city’s medina an inviting cocktail of sumptuous food, exciting nightlife and vibrant atmosphere.

Head to the old medina district at night, where a mix of bars, restaurants and food stalls effortlessly cook up some of North Africa’s finest food and drink. Enjoy sipping mint tea, sampling authentic Moroccan food and watching a North African sunset.

Attractions

Part of Marrakech’s appeal is the city’s wondrous history and culture. The Jardin Majorelle is a slice of paradise in the city, with a fantastic walled garden that is perfect for both couples and groups.

Away from the city’s cultural highlights is a developing adventure sport industry. Head out to the Atlas Mountains which is around a 45 minute drive, and try your hand at kayaking, desert driving or even camel riding.
