How do I start. I spend my life visiting venues and hotels around the world and it takes a lot to impress me.
From my first contact with the Owner of Maison MK, the experience has been an absolute pleasure. Before arriving, my special requests were taken and every element of my stay was executed to perfection. On arrival at the hotel late on a Friday evening I was greeted by staff, offered a fresh orange juice, before being given the guided tour of the facilities. We stayed in the Master Suite, which was sizeable and well designed. The hotel has a modern moroccan design, fusion contemporary british design influences with Moroccan colours and architecture. After the tour, we were left to get ready before our light moroccan supper was served, which we had preordered before arrival. Omar the Chef is a fantastic cook. Having eaten circa 10+ tagines previously, both the chicken and the lamb tagines were perfect.
Highly spiced and flavoursome - you can get some quite poor tagines in most touristy parts of morocco. The dinner was served with a bottle of prosecco we requested, and the service was attentive.
I woke up for a 10am Hammam and Massage treatment that I would highly recommend. The massage was outstanding actually, compared to Mandarin Oriental Spa's I have visited, it was probably once of the most enjoyable massages I have ever had.
For the rest of the day, we decided to stay in the 'Maison' relaxing. Drinks were brought to us while basking in the sun, and the light lunch was tasty. There was background music, Hotel Costes/Buddha Bar style playing which added to the chilled modern vibe. I was sitting around the pool wondering what makes this hotel what it is - its the staff. Nothing ever seems too much, they are friendly, attentive and happy to have long conversations with you about anything, however also give you the right amount of space when you need it. Dinner tonight was at Gastro MK. We had first option on where we wanted to sit for dinner, and opted for the smaller private dining room, which was intimate and cosy. The food was a 5 course tasting menu - and all the courses were very nice. I have to say, the tagine won me over on the first night, but the tasting menu had a slightly more modern european feel to it, and was a nice change. The rest of the stay continued with as flawless service as the first 24 hours - everything was pefect. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough, and not only will I be sure to return, I would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone. So, after finishing writing this review in the sun on the Roof Terrace at Maison MK I am going to now enjoy my final lunch before the airport trip!
