The Best Boutique Hotels in Morocco

Morocco is a stunning country, with energetic market places, beautiful architecture and sprawling desert landscape. Whether you want to stay in a traditional riad or luxury desert camp, we have handpicked some of our favourite hotels in Morocco.

Agafay Desert Luxury Camp

Experiencing the wonders of the Moroccan desert does not necessarily mean ‘roughing it’. The Agafay Desert Luxury Camp is just a short trip from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, a calming retreat to enjoy in comfort and seclusion. The stony desert makes a breathtaking backdrop, with excellent facilities including a bathroom for each tent containing its own toilet and hot water shower, and even an outdoor swimming pool in the heart of the camp. Traditional decor has been brought into the interiors, with beautiful Berber carpets and iron lanterns providing the space with a touch of luxury, as well as the added comfort of a proper double bed. Enjoy exquisite traditional food from the on site Chef, with the choice of two tagines to appreciate al fresco, far from the city lights underneath a clear starry sky. The ultimate romantic getaway! Activities are available for customers to occupy them during their stay, if relaxing poolside does not appeal there are more adventurous opportunities such as camel rides and quad biking trips.

Cesar Resort & Spa

As the top tourist destination in Morocco, Marrakech has an abundance of beautiful hotels, guest houses and riads to choose from. The Cesar Resort & Spa is a grand boutique hotel; enter to a red carpet and continue being treated like royalty for the duration of your stay. Enjoy your dinner alongside live music, orchestras and dancers or head to the rooftop bar, complete with a pool and cushioned seating for a relaxed drink. Expect clean lines and spacious stylish rooms.

Berber Lodge

This simply stunning lodge is the perfect location for a serene break from the energetic city, just a twenty minute drive from Marrakech. Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, this rustic lodge offers a beautiful mountain retreat. Each room is in fact an individual lodge built using traditional berber techniques, giving the impression of a small little village, but with added luxurious touches such as marble bathrooms. The decor follows an earthy muted colour scheme, with minimal furnishings and the odd vintage Moroccan rugs combining to make low-key luxe interiors. A simple communal pool surrounded by olive trees and an adjoining pergola bar is available for relaxation. The menu changes daily but remains true to traditional Moroccan cuisine using locally sourced ingredients, some even from the hotel’s very garden! If you’re looking for an understated but nonetheless elegant stay, this lodge is for you!

Dar Seffarine

This 600 year old riad has recently been restored to an excellent standard, and it one of the most beautiful hotels in Fez. This hidden gem is concealed behind high walls, but once you enter the magnificent guesthouse you will be amazed by the soaring columns and exquisite mosaics. The furnishings remain simple and gives the grand architecture the spotlight. A rooftop terrace is the perfect spot for a quiet breakfast or evening aperitif on the terrace.

Hotel Sahrai

A chic and contemporary boutique hotel with outstanding panoramic views across the rising tourist destination of Fez. Perched on the hillside, the design utilises this vantage point to its benefit with a cool rooftop pool and accompanying bar. In addition Hotel Sahrai offers clients the option of not one but two restaurants, L’Amaraz provides traditional Moroccan cuisine and Le Relais de Paris is a more formal french brasserie. This is the best option for those inspired by more modern spaces, with its exquisite design and brilliant use of light and space setting it apart from the other hotels in Fez.
