Marrakech luxury travel guide
Marrakech, the beautiful Berber metropolis of Morocco, is known to be the “red city” and anyone approaching Marrakech will quickly realize why. The houses are all decorated in shades of red, pink or ocher. It is full of history and color, but is also firmly rooted in the modern world. The perfect destination for a city trip if you want to get to know the Marroquin culture, taste their delicious food and experience a relaxing Hammam after a long day of exploring the sights in the beautiful oldtown. Paradizo has been offering luxury villas in Marrakech for a long time, we thought to give you some insights, so you can enjoy your trip to this amazing city even more.
Things to do
The royal city at the foot of the High Atlas is the cultural heart of Morocco and offers many attractions. The city is a feast for the senses, you can not only see it, but also feel, hear, smell and taste it. The bustling heart of the city beats at Djemaa el Fna, a juggler’s square that awaits its guests with mysterious storytellers, colorfully dressed water vendors, talented acrobats and fairytale snake charmers. Further west is the Koutoubia Mosque, one of the largest buildings in the Old Town, offering a fascinating sight by day and by night. Just behind the UNESCO listed marketplace are the labyrinthine narrow streets of the souks. Fragrant spices, colorful caftans and traditional handicrafts are available for purchase here. In the medina and just a short distance from the Marrakech Museum is the old Coran School “Medersa Ben Youssef”, which scores with Moorish arches, intricate decorations and a typical Arab courtyard. Also, worth seeing is the Bahia Palace, a masterpiece of brilliant architecture with elaborate mosaics, cedar wood carvings and a big garden. The Museum de Marrakech is also worth a visit. Here you will find collections that focus on Moroccan and Islamic art.
Food and drinks
Marrakech is a culinary paradise and home to many excellent fine dining restaurants and high-class bars and clubs. There are several cafes and restaurants offering a rich selection of dishes of both traditional and non-traditional cuisine. Tajine with lamb liver is considered a specialty here. Vegetables play an important role in this region of Morocco. We recommend the luxury restaurant “Le Tanjia” which is opulent, noble and yet very inviting with typical Moroccan lantern and giving the impression of being part of a fairytale. The name of the restaurant also stands for the traditional dish served here: an aromatic lamb stew that is simmered for many hours in a clay container. Another great place to dine is the “Le Foundouk”, with an enchantingly mystical atmosphere and a great terrace, from which you have a wonderful view over the medina. Another good recommendation is the “Le Grand Balcon Café Glacier” which offers amazing views of the Jemaa el-Fnaa. As well as the restaurant “La Trattoria de Giancarlo” with a unique atmosphere created by lanterns and candlelight around the pool.
Hammam is one of the regular rituals and part of the culture of Morocco. Surely you are wondering what Hammam is. It is a steam bath that gives people a feeling of purity and beauty. You can relax very well and care for your body in a very special way. The Hammam is a small room with a small sink in the front with hot and cold water, left and right of it, each with a lounger. The room is equipped with Moroccan tiles which are called “Zellije”, they are getting very warm. It is first doused with very warm water, which is removed from the sink by means of a scoop. Then your whole body is rubbed with a black soap which is known as “Savon Noir” to remove the dead skin. After the visit of the steam room many marocceans enjoy a massage to feel even more relaxed. A great place to try the hammam is the “Les Bains de Marrakech”, it is located in the Kasbah area of the Marrakech medina, and the ideal option for couples, with joint hammam and massage rooms. Another great place is the “Hammam Dar El Bacha”, with its domed ceiling, arched galleries and keystone doorways it is one of the most authentic hammams in the city. Other great Hammams are the “Kennaria Hammam” and the “Heritage Spa”.
