With a complimentary car pick up from Marrakech airport, it's just a fifteen minute journey home toVilla des Orangers. The reference to home is appropriate for never have fewer places ever felt so homely, somewhere so foreign. Upon stepping inside this beautiful Riad style hotel, it's quick to materialise that the world outside it's walls fades into nothing but a distant memory.
Villa des Oranges is a small boutique Riad in Marrakech where both first time visitors and seasoned pros come to embrace the beauty of Morocco in an intimate setting with the perfect touch of local accents. Dreamy with so many little pretty places to sit and relax, read, play chess, swim or even work remotely by the pool thanks to Wifi, it's the ultimate chill-out setting and something of an otherworldly experience if you’ve never visited Morocco before.
Beginning your days with breakfast on your own private rooftop terrace followed by mid-morning visits to the NUXE Spa where specialised therapists offer a wide range of luxurious treatments are just for starters. After such relaxing mornings it’s left for lunch by the pool and drops of Moroccan tea or top ups of champagne throughout the afternoon to take you to evening. You could happily remain fully self sustained from arrival to departure within the walls of this heavenly spot. From tête-à-tête dinners under the stars to room serviced meals and mid-day snacks, dining options are endless and fully customised for the individual desires.
For this who do decide to venture out though, it’s a short five minute walk to the souks of Marrakech and many other wonders of the city. Halfway between the Royal Palace and the famous Jemaa El Ena Square and right at the foot of the Koutoubia Mosque, Villa des Oranges is perfectly placed for daily adventures within walking distance and not too far from those that require a taxi to and from the hotel.
On a par with the quality of the hotel’s surroundings, the staff are more than accommodating, greeting you each morning with a smile and a helping hand with whatever you wish to do that day and the attention to detail with rose petals everywhere is exceptional. This road is for those wishing to be taken care of fully for a few days while left to soak up the sun and embrace the all encompassing atmosphere that Marrakech has to offer.
