“Fantastic Peaceful Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

It nearly seems unbelievable how many good reviews Domaine Malika is receiving and I cannot do anything but add another rave review.

Location: Beautiful located in the Atlas Mountains with fantastic views, secluded enough to be far away from everything you want to be away from but central enough to find plenty of civilisation just a short drive away. Asni is only a 10 minute drive, Marrakech roughly one hour.

The property: The grounds are just amazing. The architecture of the property has a very layered look which gives you plenty of quiet secluded corners so that you do not need to mingle with anyone if you do not want to, however there are plenty of really nice common places so that you have all the opportunity you would want to interact with other guests. We were there in November, therefore we could not make use of the pool as such (but we used the loungers next to it) but rather found the fireplaces everywhere around the house very cozy...

The rooms: These are really great, very spacious with modern design combined with traditional pieces, be it Moroccan or European antiques. The weather while we were there allowed us to have breakfast on the terrace of our room in bright sunshine and to light the fireplace in the late afternoon when the sun had nearly set.

The food: We had dinner at Domaine Malika all three nights that we were there as it was so convenient not to leave the place and we did not have a car to go anywhere further away (and could not be bothered to get a taxi). We really enjoyed the food, French cuisine with a Moroccan twist, very nicely presented. We were the only guest on one night and they set up the dinner table in a romantic and cozy corner right next to the fire place specially for us!

The people: Paul and his mother Agnes were just great and helpful in every respect. When we arrived we did not have enough cash on us to pay our driver as there was a little misunderstanding as to whether it would be charged through the accommodation or need to pay by us directly. They provided the cash and drove me to an ATM in Asni during our stay to get the cash to pay them back, no fuss at all. I also unfortunately left a sweater in the car dropping us at the airport and Paul has been really sweet in retrieving it and will be getting it back to me!
Not to mention the really nice staff who are very dedicated and deliver a really personal service offering a kind chat whenever you walk into them and any other help you would ask for but being very unobtrusive otherwise.

Overall, this is a very relaxing beautiful place. As Paul says when you arrive, the favorite passtime at Domaine Malika is just doing nothing at all. Not one of my personal strenghts normally, but here it was really easy to embrace. If you want a place to just wind down, enjoy the scenery, have good food and good service, spend a couple of days here.

Room Tip: Of the Junior Suites, apparently the two rooms on the sides (I think no. 4 and 6) are slightly large...

We just keep coming back! Almost a year to the day my boyfriend and I visited Morocco again and decided to spend our whole holiday at Domaine Malika. Another truly peaceful, welcoming and wonderful stay. Food to write home about and as ever, Paul and his mother were so warm and helpful. We spent a wonderful few hours climbing a mountain, a few walking through the quiet village lanes near the hotel and the rest gazing at the pool, swimming and enjoying a relaxing massage at the hamman. A unique, quirky and stylish hotel in the most beautiful part of the Atlas Mountains. Bliss..

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful!

The Domaine Malika is a beautiful, stylish and very welcoming hotel, set in the beautiful Ouirgane Valley, with gorgeous views of the mountains. Our host Paul, was so welcoming and helpful and we felt instantly at home. The food was also some of the best we had during our trip to Morocco! We took some wonderful walks and enjoyed relaxing on the rood terrace or by the pool.

Great hotel, we had a junior suite with 2 huge windows giving unbeatable views to the High Atlas mountains in both directions - simply stunning. Paul and his mother Agnes were lovely and warm welcoming people. The food was superb every night. The Hamman was excellent and very relaxing after a 10mile trek through the foot hills. My only negative would be that due to the time of year the hotel was cold, even the roaring log fires which were lit each night in the dining toom and our room (very romantic) couldnt bring the temperature up enough probably because of the high ceiling, huge windows and our bedroom was split level- not their fault though we should have taken more jumpers for the evenings. Overall a fantastic place . Just pack the right stuff and you will be perfect

Quite simply Domaine Malika, run by Paul and his mother, offers a beautiful, stylish oasis amongst the lush high Atlas. We felt privileged to stay there and to eat the beautiful food (home grown vegetable and fruit). The only thing missing was a murder for Poirot to come and solve. He would have fitted in perfectly.

Domaine Malika was the first of four places myself and my family stayed on our first trip to Morocco, and WOW what a place to start! Paul and his staff made us feel like royalty with their kindness and attention to detail. The rooms, Swimming area and gardens are lovely and the food is of a very high standard. With no Menu you to choose from, you eat what is prepared and at no point were we disappointed. If you stay be sure to take a walk along to their fruit and vegetable garden as it gives an idea of what the garden of Eden would have looked like!
Our room afforded a superb view of the swimming pool and garden area, we could look on from our balcony whilst the kids played in the pool.
We didn't move much from the hotel, as we were there to relax, and that is what we did.
Well done Paul and team for what you have done is created excellence in a fantastic area of a fantastic country.
See you again soon.

Paul and Agnes have created a sanctuary in the heart of the Atlas Mountains !!! The hotel is beautiful and provided us with a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. We relaxed and enjoyed the wonderful environment as well as Agnes's superb food which makes good use of the vegetables and fruit grown in their own garden.
