We stayed at Villa Makassar after seeing an offer for the hotel on Travelzoo.
Villa Makassar is a tranquil, luxurious oasis amidst a busy city, run by a passionate owner and helpful staff. Stepping in off the street through a large, heavy door, you’re instantly met with the scent of orange blossom and the gentle sound of a babbling fountain in the interior courtyard. After a traditional complimentary minty tea in the comfortable lounge, we were given a tour of the building by the owner, Fouad. It was fascinating hearing about his five year long quest to renovate the Riad in an art deco style, picking pieces from around the world and bringing them together to produce a striking visual.
Our stay felt luxurious and relaxed, the highlight being a breakfast of the freshest, sweetest local orange juice, Moroccan pastries and minty tea, which we took daily on the roof terrace in full view of the Atlas mountains. We also took advantage of the traditional spa (the ‘Hammam’) for a steamy full body scrub, massage and pedicure. The staff looked after us very well, recommending and booking excellent restaurants and trips at our request. Any problems we had were swiftly taken care of.
If we ever re-visit Marrakech, we will definitely think of staying at Villa Makassar again.
