Les Borgs de la Kasbah, Marrakech.
Date: April 24 2009
I have just returned from a weekend at this fabulous riad in the heart of Marrakech, close to the Kasbah. I was really impressed with it, for several reasons. Firstly, the look and feel of the place transports you back in time, with its open-air courtyards, authentic tiling and Moroccan detail everywhere.
Les Borgs was originally seven houses and the owners have created a charming, old-style boutique hotel with real character.
Secondly, for such a small, boutique style hotel - it has just 27 rooms - it has all the facilities and amenities of a much larger property. For example, a relaxing and decent-size open-air pool on the rooftop and a luxurious spa.
Bedrooms are to a high spec, from beautifully-tiled bathrooms to flatscreen TVs. Most rooms overlook the main courtyard and the suites overlook the pool area.
Staff have a can-do attitude, which is refreshing too. They arranged a friend's birthday party and just got on with it and everything went like clockwork.
Last but not least I loved the fact that it was so discreet, with a door and small sign on the outside, neither of which suggests the rich interior the other side.
I recommend it highly.
