“Beautiful rest spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I didn't stay here but came for lunch and an afternoon at the pool.

The food was unspectacular but nice, and the place itself is the kind that you instantly fall in love with. Gorgeous gardens, lovely pools, very quiet.

Makes an amazing change from the hustle and bustle of the city. Somewhere I will always remember with great affection and I can't recommend it highly enough if you feel in need of recharging or just a dip in a nice (very cold in march!) pool.

Beldi Hotel and its cousins, the kasbah and the Iglesia are just 'different', they provide interesting alternative experiences vs. the mainstream hotels. We had the pleasure to meet the owners, charming and great visionnaire, wish more people would do similar projects, good luck to them and keep it up!

Wonderful place! Just a really relaxed feeling, excellent service and a great manager who takes time to personally make sure your stay lives up to the expectations. Good local food in the restaurant and very attentive staff that made sure you you got the same things for breakfast every day (if you had a special request one morning, the staff made sure you got the same the next day even if it wasn´t the same staff crew on duty)

I have been visiting Marrakech for a few years now and the Beldi Country Club and Spa is a pearl of purity in a sea of glittering jewels. The medina has an unfair share of delightful riads both historical and contemporary to choose from, and it is well worth staying in town for at least two nights.
However this visit I wanted to take a step away from the hustle and bustle and experience the wonderful clean air and open countryside outside the city. A retreat to get away from Europe and work and Christmas craziness.
The Beldi is almost hidden down a country lane...dusty and typically ochre until you turn a corner and the rose fields come into view.
Opening the car door I was transported by the scent of roses, lavender and rosemary. I immediately knew I had come to the right place.

There is an understated style, a relaxed ambiance to the place. The architecture is sympathetic and low rise, from the evocative pavilions with their sumptuous furnishings and lamps, to the easy going poolside restaurant.
The black bar invokes a bygone age with 1930's and 40's music and excellent cocktails, served with an easy smile. The pools are not heated in winter but I would imagine they are 'just right' in the summer months.
The room was beautifully simple, fine linens, a wonderful bathroom with bath and walk in shower, sculpted from tadelakt, beautiful toiletries, gowns, all essentials provided. The furnishings have that one off, discovered and collected cool. Upstairs a most comfortable bed is the centre piece of an understated retreat, and of course the fresh roses perfume it all. A terrace provided a perfect position for star gazing in the evenings.

The gardens are seemingly endless and beautifully conceived. Running water provides a melodic note through pools and ponds, complete with ducks.
The evening restaurant, a large open room with central fireplace, berber hangings and an almost Colorado style wall of boulders and glass is wonderful. Warm and welcoming.
The food is kept to a simple cut down seasonal menu, fantastic value and cooked perfectly. Mixing fine French and Moroccan cuisines, Tajines, Cous cous, Oysters, Quail, Heavenly fish dishes (Monkfish and Sole), Fillet steaks, something for any palette. Desserts to die for.
The wine list seemed extensive but we stuck to Moroccan Sahari reserve. My guest's professed favourite.
Daily breakfast was excellent and wholesome, fruit, pomegranates, oranges, warm breads, crepes, conserves, fresh coffee and orange juice.
I highly recommend at least one visit to the Spa for a "rub and scrub", absolutely divine and a beautiful building.

It is however the owners and staff that make this place what it is, a joy to visit, somewhere to achieve the 'downtime' we all yearn for these days.
Friendly, efficient and happy, their pride in the Beldi is tangible and wonderful to observe.
Out of 10, well 10 out of ten.
I cannot wait to return.

Foreword: I would have given 5/5 for the place, or even 6/5 if I could, but I brought it down to only 3/5 because of the way pricing was handled.

When looking for a place to relax for a few days as a single woman in the vicinity of Marrakech, one of my options was this Country Club. The person with whom I had interacted by mail to make the reservation (Naima), had let me know that I would not be able to benefit from any double-room-single-use price modulation “because the rooms were in great demand”. Having decided to take it at full double-room-double-use price anyway to just stay half the time I had anticipated (*), I was kind of surprised to find there were not even 10 other hotel guests staying … However, I was also immediately and totally a blown off my socks by the absolute beauty of the place. The layout of the grounds was gorgeous, disorientating with surprising views around each corner, and cosy sitting arrangements everywhere (with local woodcarved furniture). Ironically, the beauty of all these cosy corners made it even more apparent how deserted (as in, empty of people) this place was. It was also deserted, as in, in the middle of nowhere, but that is exactly the point : dépayser within a country that is already tailored to depaysement in its own right. Then I was escorted to my room, and there my vocabulary runs short : the room was just breathtaking. Not in an opulent way, just breathtaking because of the simplicity and authenticity of the furniture and decoration. I retrospectively empathized with the interior decorator faced with tough choices when having had to incorporate modern time electronic features (doorkey; airco; waterheater for tea) to blend in with the otherwise antique look and feel of the room. My room (Mamoun, nr 23) had close to no WIFI signal, but I didn’t ask to change rooms for fear of getting a room that would be a fraction less enchanting. There were alternatives to sit elsewhere to get in touch with the outside world, or in the very cosy homecinema room beaming either TV channels or a selection of DVD’s. The private terrace with two chaises longues and a bath I would have probably appreciated more if Bjorn had been able to join me on this trip, but in my double-room-single-use setting, this was less appealing. We are very eclectic travellers, ranging from youth hostels in Napels with the kids, to Oberoi just the two of us with a view on the Gizeh Pyramids, but this hotel has this “je ne sais quoi” charm that I’ve not come across before. While making a remark about it for the benefit of other travellers who may be better at negotiating, the pricing of the room was what it was, non-negotiable in a very un-Morrocean tradition. For one person, without anything salty for one of the 2 breakfasts (“no cheese in the house”), without WIFI in the room, without poolheating which makes swimming impossible end of october, the quality-price was probably off, but in Morroco it is difficult to know what is the right price for anything (unless you’re a member of one of the tourist selfhelp groups online like this one). But if there is a next time in Marrakech with Bjorn, we’ll definitely be back to stay here.

(*) see my review of the place I stayed at the remainder of my time in Marrakech (Club Eldorador Marrakech Palmeraie).

Room Tip: if you need WIFI in your room, explicitly ask for it

The Beldi Country Club is an excellent hotel, not to far away from Marrakech (15 min).
The spa is excellent, the garden so beautiful and the staff very friendly! The interior design is beautiful and every room is different. There is no tv on the room, which is perfect if you want to disconnect from the world. I highly recommend this place.
Will definitely comeback!
