Since opening in 1946, La Maison Arabe has achieved a legendary status in Marrakech. Ideally situated in the medina, the hotel includes 26 rooms and suites, most with private terraces and fireplaces, 3 restaurants, a piano bar, a world-famous cooking school (open to guests staying at the hotel or elsewhere in town) as well as a new spa including a traditional hammam, where natural products from the region of Marrakech are used.
Guests at La Maison Arabe have a choice of swimming pools. One can relax at either the heated pool in the hotel’s garden patio, or at the pool located at the spectacular Country Club, 15 minutes away by complimentary shuttle. Walking through the hotel’s flower-filled patios, one can admire the traditional Moroccan craftsmanship (tadelakt walls, chiseled plaster, cedar wood ceilings) that has created a refined, exotic and serene atmosphere for guests.
Each of the 12 rooms and 14 suites, most with fireplace and private terrace, is unique in layout and refined decoration. All are air conditioned and centrally heated, and include a mini-bar, safe, satellite television and WIFI internet access. The bathrooms, designed using Moroccan marble and granite, are at the highest level of international luxury hotel standards.
Breakfast – either continental with homemade pastries, or deliciously Moroccan – is served in one’s room, or at the buffet by the swimming pool downstairs. An impeccable room service offers light meals or snacks for those who wish to dine in private.
