With our partner easyJet Holidays, these are the best boutique hotels and urban retreats to stay at in Marrakech
Be Live Collection Marrakech
Best for… a grown-up getaway
A cool and contemporary spin on the traditional Moroccan riad. Its gleaming gold and marble lounges, forest of palms and tiled pools suit the five-star style of this adults-only hotel. But so does the laidback cocktail bar, vibrant, pop-art restaurant and lush lounges. The spa, with hammams, pools and massage cabins, is sumptuous. You’re close to town, but might never get there – the hotel lays on sports, from golf to basketball, nighttime entertainment and drinks nights.

Iberostar Club Palmeraie Marrakech
Best for… taking tea under the palms
Get a taste of Marrakech at its imperial, dynastic peak at this classic hotel, set within the grove of 100,000 palm trees that make up the Palmeraie of Marrakech, an ancient 11th-century oasis. Dotted around its beautiful grounds is everything you’d expect from a top-class hotel, and more: a smart lobby bar, a destination restaurant that specialises in Moroccan cuisine, a glorious pool. But it’s also just 15 minutes from the world-famous Medina. And don't worry about overloading yourself with its world-famous spices, artifacts and jewellery: the hotel has a private bus to whisk you home.

Be Live Experience Marrakech Palmeraie
Best for… family trips
Brilliantly located close to the centre of Marrakech, and with amazing views of the Atlas Mountains and the famous palm grove, this smart, family friendly hotel is a wonderland for travellers with kids. Yes, it’s a four-star resort, with a private gym, a lobby bar, plush suites and a pool, but hidden away among all that are adventure pools with slides and fountains, a mini club for the youngest guests and a teenagers’ club for older visitors.

Eden Andalou Aquapark & Spa
Best for… keeping the whole family happy

Beautifully designed with real Moroccan flair, this hotel has an enormous aquapark, highly acclaimed spa and beauty centre, discos, dance shows and theatre. From tagines to Turkish delight, It feels like there’s more to eat here than in the Medina, thanks to its numerous, varied restaurants and bars.

Barcelo Palmeraie Marrakech
Best for… getting in the grove
It’s a cliché to describe a secluded gem of a hotel like this as an oasis of calm, but that’s exactly what it is, set at the heart of Marrakech’s palm grove. Everything about this luxury hotel is tuned to wellness: from the large pool to the beautiful, tiled spa and hammam; the cool, bistro-style restaurant and the plush rooms and suites. Just 11km from the airport, and close to the train station, you can be poolside within minutes of disembarking.
KM6 N8Book with easyJet Holidays
Best for… sightseeing
Enjoy a taste of Moroccan high society in this exclusive little hotel, styled around a traditional riad with seven individually restored, spacious rooms and a gorgeous terrace – with space, of course, for a swimming pool, ideal for cooling off after a day in the Medina. The star attraction is the location, though, which couldn’t be more perfect for sightseeing: in the Kasbah district, it’s right next to El Badi Palace and a wealth of traditional restaurants.
