I would not want to stay anywhere else if I was in Marrakech. This hotel is one of the best places I have ever stayed. The staff go out of their way for you, they are amazing! We especially enjoyed the complimentary mint tea provided at certain times of the day. This is also a culinary hotel so the food here was by far the best we had in Morocco. The food is top notch and cooked to perfection. Not only was this a traditional experience, it was luxurious and the restaurant in the hotel was our favorite meal of the trip. Our room was beautiful, the decor will make you want to copy it! Our suite was stunning, spacious, clean and styled impeccably with Moroccan decor. They also offer tours that I would most definitely recommend. I will make sure to stay there again when I return to Marrakech.

La Maison Arabe is a Luxury Hotel where art and culture are a key thread in the fabric of life. Designed for lovers of hotels where every piece of architecture is unique. The interiors are elegant with magnificent mature gardens, and immaculate service. You will see photography, sculpture, and paintings as part of the rolling exhibitions they host several times a year. La Maison Arabe is with an authentic Moroccan ambiance, replete with high ceilings, ornately carved columns. Every inch of this palatial-like property makes you feel as though you arrived in some regal estate of an Arabian kingdom. It is the essence of true luxury! Management & Team As a Hotelier myself with 40+ years’ experience, everything starts with Management! They are exceptional, to say the least, and worth every penny, if not more! The Management and Team will stop at nothing to ensure all your needs and desires are met during your stay giving much prestige to La Maison Arabe label, they do not miss an inch. I salute them! Truly 5-star excellence! Guest Relations Although the load factor is low due to COVID, nothing is sparred with relation to obtaining the high-end luxury at La Maison Arabe. They are fully COVID compliant. The grounds are magnificently kept with gardens surround. It is a true paradise. Service The service is most impressive from all involved; from the GM, Sales, Front Desk, Wait Staff, Maitre De, and Bellman. All are fully involved in the success of the Hotel and are very happy to try and accommodate all requests. Everyone from right at the entrance and lovely staff welcoming you on arrival offering assistance with your luggage to the wait staff and room upkeep staff are committed to exceeding your expectations with their genuine and discreet service that defines signature La Maison Arabe Luxury. The hospitality of the Management and staff is “Outstanding”. Location The hotel has a great location with breathtaking views. Located a short walk from Jemaa el Fna Square. Bar/Dining The Bartenders are very knowledgeable and friendly. The service for breakfast and world-class dining is outstanding from the Maitre D to the wait staff. They are eager to please trying to accommodate even personal choice requests with a “Special Touch” and elegant silverware to boot. They have the best of Moroccan cuisine with specially curated dishes prepared savoring international flavors enhanced by the ambiance of your delightful surroundings especially around the pool. Cooking Class Enjoy taking a wonderful class with a world-renowned chef and explore the exquisite secrets of the cuisine. Accessibility/Transportation Transportation is a breeze, as they offer very professional transportation options to include day trips, etc. The concierge is pleased to assist with any private tours, etc. Accommodations Suites are exquisitely decorated with the finest. High ceilings, luxury bedding, and linens. Bathrooms are equipped with all amenities and richness to include marble and granite. The balconies give the warmth and feeling as if you are in your own private exclusive estate. Each room is furnished with gorgeous antique furniture, works of art, and sculptured ceilings synonymous with the charm and elegance of Morocco. Pool/Spa/Gym The pools are spectacular, some with magnificent views, almost picture-perfect. The Spa has a great team that is professionally staffed with very high standards including a Turkish Hammam (steam room), and a variety of specialty treatment therapies. Overall I highly recommend and salute the La Maison Arabe as a place to relax and unwind to enjoy their luxurious hospitality. This hotel offers the highest level of service with great value for those who choose to visit Marrakech. It is a must-visit to enjoy and experience the distinct “TASTE of LUXURY”! Do not miss trying to stay at the best of the best to experience the “Lavishness” and “Luscious Cuisine”.

From checkin to checkout, a magical holiday. Every detail was thought of and the staff is very attentive and friendly. From the welcome drink, to the riad tour, to beverages and fruit in the room. Masks, hand sanitizer and wipes were provided in the rooms. The spa is luxurious and we had various treatments three days in a row. We spent one afternoon lounging in the sunshine of the country club. The cooking class was fun and well organized. I was also treated to a on operatic version of 'Happy Birthday'. We are looking forward to our next visit!
