“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2009

If you want to live like a king then come to Maison MK. The pictures on the website however beautiful, do not do this haven justice. Think of the heavenly ambiance of a luxury spa, with calming music piped into all areas , friendly helpful staff and copious amounts of cushions to sink into.

If you are lucky enough to have booked the Master Bedroom, you wake up to the sun gently highlighting a cross crafted into the lovely wooden windows, one of far too many special touches to mention here.

Breakfast on the lovely rooftops overlooking Marrakesh with the mountains in the distance is a perfect way to start the day before you take your life into your own hands traversing the manic streets of the town.

The breakfast consists of tea and coffee, fresh orange juice, with fruit yogurt compote, bread with jams and pastries.

You will find yourself spending time in all of the hotels spaces from the opulence of the camel room, to the dvd lounge where you can't resist but to have a go on the xbox 360. The pool is lovely just after sunning yourself on the terrace.

Don't forget to have a lovely massage, with the pick of the bunch being the Hammans.

Overall if you want peace and tranquility a couple minutes away from the hustle bustle of Marrakesh markets, then this is the place to come. It may be expensive, but it is worth every penny.

We stayed at Maison MK while on a television shoot in Marrakech and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is stylish, fun, friendly and incredibly luxurious. The rooms have Moroccan mobile phones, i-pods, hairdryers, giant plastic bath ducks and delicious chocolates. The masseuse is fabulously good. The manager Jalel and owner Paul are really helpful and good fun and the staff are attentive without being sychophantic. The roof terrace has one of the best views of the Atlas mountains in town - I know because I checked out a load of them for filming.

maison mk looked so wonderful on the website I didn't expect it to be a million times better in the flesh. It really came alive with the fun and friendly staff, beautiful lighting at night and lazy morning breakfasts on the roof terrace. With so many places in Marrakech to choose from , it can be a hard choice... unless you know of this place. Then it's simple. There really is nowhere better.

To say that it rained during our stay in Marrakesh is an understatement it absolutely poured down. It is at times like this that you really appreciate a good place to stay and Maison MK was superb. When the heavens opened we enjoyed the spa treatments, great food, movies, board games, luxurious baths, fine wine and fun that the Riad had to offer. When the sun shone (briefly) we took the opportunity to lose ourselves in the Medina which is just the other side of the front door. We had a marvellous time and will definitely go back!

Have been to 3 Riads in Marrakech. Masion MK was by far the best for what I paid. It is extremely cosy & welcoming. Once inside the front door & away from the stir of the medina I could but only chill-out to the max.
While its decor has a modern touch it has by no means sold out & maintains true to it's north African virtues. The lighting in the bedrooms & the en suites allow for any mood & the in-house sound system works a treat. The roof terrace is quite large & offers a superb uninterrupted vista of the entire medina. I only had breakfast which was more than up to the task.
All the staff were very friendly & willing to help us with taxis, directions, booking restaurants & clubs etc.
If your searching for a Riad for a cheeky little weekend in Marrakech stop right here - no need to look further. Masion MK and its staff will make your stay is as serene as possible.

I loved it and had such fun! Set in the old medina of Marrakech, Maison MK is in the perfect spot for taking in the souks – only a short walk to Jemaa-el-Fna and all that it has to offer, it is also only a 10 dirham taxi ride to either Gueliz or Hivernage with the more cosmopolitan shops, bars and restaurants. And that for me is perfect – everything easy, getting lost is fun but a quick request of one of the stall holders for the direction to Bab Ksour and I easily found my way ‘home’. I do not normally stay in hotels when I travel – I prefer to visit friend’s homes or rent private villas – so Maison MK was an extremely pleasant surprise. It felt like being in a private home, with a small number of rooms, everything was very personal from the smiling cleaners, accomplished masseuse, charming waiters and waitresses, the ever helpful and thoughtful manager and everyone I had contact with made my stay a pleasure (not to mention the yummy breakfasts!). There are lots of nooks to hide away in with a book, but also comfortable communal areas to meet with fellow guests, the roof terrace is on several levels (with stunning views of the Atlas mountains and Marrakech rooftops) and the sun beds are luxuriously spacious, not to mention the various places, inside and out, to eat and drink and be merry. Maison mk is the perfect antidote to the crazy outside world.
