“Amazing honeymoon in an idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We have just returned from our honeymoon in Morocco and spent the first 5 nights at Domaine Malika. What can we say but fantastic! The setting is fabulous with views over the snow capped high Atlas and everywhere is so tranquil with only the birdsong and sound of running water as you lie by the pool. Easy to while away the days. We had beautiful weather in the high 20s. There is as much or little as you want to do here from varying lengths of walks in the hills, to visiting local markets to relaxing in the hotel's hammam (don't miss this!!).
Paul and his staff are great and cannot do enough for you. Khalid deserves a special mention too.
Food is good sourced from local produce and dinner very relaxing in front of a beautiful log fire at this time of year. Local Moroccan breakfast is good too. And the only decision for lunch is where to sit to eat it.
We will definitely return and Paul deserves the 2013 travellers choice award.

Room Tip: Not sure you would go far wrong with any of the rooms here as all have fabulous views - we had room...

We stayed here for two nights after spending a couple of days in the madness of Marrakech.
We hired a cheap car (£50 for 3 days) and had a fun road trip through the Mountains which took us around 90mins, stopping a few times to take photos of the scenery.
We arrived to a slightly confused greeting but were soon welcomed in and shown to our upstairs room, which was nice and large with amazing views of the surrounding mountains and the pool below.
We spent the day by the pool (which isn't heated) with a few drinks and we also walked around the gardens, where the property grows a lot of its own produce, which we enjoyed for the evenings dinner.
There isn't much to do in the area, but this adds to its charm of getting away and relaxing.
The owner Paul and his team are really nice and helpful, they also speak very good English.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing break.

The location is fabulous, the small team of staff couldnt be more helpful and were wonderful. The food is simply delicious cooked with passion and the location is stunning. I had my first Hammam which was full of surprises and thoroughly relaxing and i highly recommended.
We loved it.

This is possibly the most wonderful place I have ever stayed. I simply can not understand why this is not a 5 star. The rooms/pool/views are absolutely out of this world. The manager Paul is possibly the most lovely man I've ever met, as well as all the staff, all going out of their way to help you have the most amazing trip possible. We are already planning our next trip back!

Our tour company booked us in, and what a gem! Paul met us and enthusiastically showed us to our room, and told us about the guest house. We chose to have the tea in our room, very nice too. Our room looked out over the property, pool and olive trees, with mountains behind. Our room was up a few stairs, had roof access where there were lounge chairs and a great view of the stars at night. The room had a large squate tub, nice shower, separate toilet. The bed was very large and comfortable, the pillows were lovely too.
The food was tasty and creatively presented. Quiet jazz accompanied breakfast and dinner. There was a sitting area and a small library with french and a few english books.
We had a hike arranged with mules and a picnic lunch. The guide was informative and matched his pace to ours, and the mules followed. We enjoyed a ride for the last 30 minutes, the mule leaders handled the mules caringly and expertly. After all the driving we were so glad to exercise and get close tomthe scenary.
Malika is in a nice little village, we hope to return, on our own next time.

Paul and his team made us very welcome. Lovely gardens and location and the rooms certainly have a "Wow!" factor. I would certainly want to go there again if I were going to Morocco. It is a good thing to combine with Marrakech, being so much more rural, but only 80 minutes by taxi from the city. There are great walks to do, and you can easily get a taxi to take you around if you want for excursions further afield. You may well hear the nose of chickens, donkey, dogs etc, but if you live in the country, you must expect that: at least there is no traffic noise! Just down the lane, about 300m, there is a small shop where you can get all sort of odds and ends. Worth a visit, but the old chap who is usually there, mainly speaks Moroccan Arabic. If there is someone else there, they can usually help out with French. English is spoken by people in the tourist trade but otherwise the lingua franca is indeed French. Glad I did it at school!

Wonderful evening menu available: we ate there on each of our 3 nights. I would love to stay at this place again. We wish Paul and his Team every success in the future.

My wife and I spent four nights at Domaine Malika in February after two nights in Marrakesh. For us, this combination was ideal and we were able to completely relax after two manic days in the Medina. We selected Domaine Malika based on the tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed.

We stayed in a standard room, which was a good size and very comfortable, with amazing views from the full height windows. The roof terrace was directly accessible from steps from our room and we spent a couple of afternoons relaxing in the sunshine with incredible views all around.

Paul and the staff at Domaine Malika are very welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay special. The food is excellent - breakfasts are fresh and plentiful and the dinners are superb, making use of fresh produce grown in the hotel gardens.

Paul organised a guided walk for us with one of the Mohammeds (apparently there are two guides that Paul recommends, both called Mohammed!). We would recommend this as we saw much more that we would have on our own and we visited a working olive press in a nearby village, which was amazing.

We visited the market at Asni on Saturday, which is large and very interesting, but quite graphic in the butchery area and we did find that several friendly locals latched on to us and followed us closely, trying to sell their wares.

Paul organised our taxi transfers from and to Marrakesh, which went smoothly. We would definitely consider a return visit to Domaine Malika, but next time we would probably hire a car to allow us to explore the mountains beyond Ourgaine as the scenery is breathtaking. The local area is very rural and unspoilt.

All in all a very relaxing stay in an excellent small hotel with welcoming staff and mouth-watering food.

Room Tip: We were very satisfied with our standard room, which was large, comfortable and very clean.
