Ah Marrakech – a chic yet soulful destination that seasoned travellers like Madame Micebook keep returning to for its vibrant nights and beautiful sights.
Luxury choices abound and all the main brands have converged on this intriguing destination but for her winter break, Madame will be residing at the palatial Ksar Char-Bagh, a striking example of 14th century Moorish architecture.
Surrounded in four hectares of Persian-style gardens, the private palace has an impressive façade of the 7m² brass doors and high arches with mosaic carvings of Andalusian descent. Inside, the 15 bedrooms are the very definition of opulence, with private terraces and gardens for relaxation, plus beautifully curated spaces, with furniture designed by the owners themselves.
From breakfast through to dinner, the talented team in the kitchen make the most of the produce from the kitchen garden and olive grove, where the hotel’s olive oil is produced. Home-made jams made fruits from the orchard trees are a breakfast highlight, while at dinner time, guests can frequent Le Grand Salon for local specialities.
Moroccan traditions are also in evidence at Ksar Char-Bagh spa, where essential oil massages, rhassoul therapies and ‘kiss’ glove scrubs are accompanied by Arabic music, candlelight and a decadent red marble hammam.
