#2 of 701 hotels in Marrakech
2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Located a short walk from Jemaa el Fna Square, a UNESCO heritage site, this intimate 37-room retreat is a legend in itself – founded by French mother and daughter pair Suzy and Helene Sebillon-Larochette in the 1940s as the first restaurant in the medina open to foreigners, and lovingly restored in the 1990s by Italian aristocrat, Count Fabrizio Ruspoli, to become the first boutique riad-hotel in Marrakech. Here, you can walk in the footsteps of many famous visitors from celebrities to dignitaries who came to dine, including Ernest Hemingway, Jackie Kennedy, Rita Hayworth, Queen Ingrid of Denmark and Sir Winston Churchill, and rest amidst the aristocratic splendour of a traditional riad, graced with all the amenities and services of a luxury hotel. Immerse in the charm of a bygone era and sumptuous comfort styled with an elegant blend of Moroccan and European design. Indulge in La Maison Arabe’s long tradition of refined Moroccan gastronomy, alongside international delights. Take part in the intricacies of Moroccan cuisine at the hotel’s world-renowned cooking school, where veteran local chefs divulge their age-old culinary secrets. After a busy day exploring the historic sights and bustling souks, La Maison Arabe is the perfect realm to unwind – with a cocktail du jour at the piano-jazz bar, with a rejuvenating hammam and massage at the spa, or with a dip in a choice of two swimming pools, under the shade of olive trees, or in the oasis of a luxurious secret garden at the hotel’s own Country Club sanctuary. A short shuttle ride away in the exclusive Palmeraie suburb, the idyllic Country Club boasts a stunning kasbah, a traditional Berber tent and fragrant gardens with flower-filled fountains. From its captivating warmth to its legendary culinary legacy, La Maison Arabe enchants all your senses with the indispensable pleasures of life.

I took part in an online cookery course today. It was amazing. Simple to follow with a great demonstration from the hotel kitchen. Easy to follow recipe and it tasted and smelt amazing. My husband enjoyed it for a special lunch. If the cookery course is anything to go by we cant wait to come and visit. Thank you for an amazing experience chefs.

This accomodation was my favourite (out of the 7 different places we stayed at on this trip). Rooms - very clean with a luxurious yet traditional feel. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a junior suite and the room was very large with a separate sitting area and a private terrace overlooking the pool. Service - was excellent. Staff were so attentive and personable and must have been briefed prior to our arrival because they all seemed to be across where we were from and our room no. etc from the moment we got there. Such personal service that made us feel like we were important! Food - blew me away. Their lamb cous cous was so yum (had it 3 times) and their non-moroccon menu is also great quality. Their restaurant must be very well known as lots of non hotel guests came to the hotel just for dining. Breakfast was really good too - there was a lady making traditional looking pancakes every morning over an outdoor stove. So delicious Secret garden - they had a second pool in a secret garden some distance away (there is a shuttle leaving every hour) that was a nice escape from the hustle of Marrakech. Worth the visit!

I would not want to stay anywhere else if I was in Marrakech. This hotel is one of the best places I have ever stayed. The staff go out of their way for you, they are amazing! We especially enjoyed the complimentary mint tea provided at certain times of the day. This is also a culinary hotel so the food here was by far the best we had in Morocco. The food is top notch and cooked to perfection. Not only was this a traditional experience, it was luxurious and the restaurant in the hotel was our favorite meal of the trip. Our room was beautiful, the decor will make you want to copy it! Our suite was stunning, spacious, clean and styled impeccably with Moroccan decor. They also offer tours that I would most definitely recommend. I will make sure to stay there again when I return to Marrakech.

La Maison Arabe is a Luxury Hotel where art and culture are a key thread in the fabric of life. Designed for lovers of hotels where every piece of architecture is unique. The interiors are elegant with magnificent mature gardens, and immaculate service. You will see photography, sculpture, and paintings as part of the rolling exhibitions they host several times a year. La Maison Arabe is with an authentic Moroccan ambiance, replete with high ceilings, ornately carved columns. Every inch of this palatial-like property makes you feel as though you arrived in some regal estate of an Arabian kingdom. It is the essence of true luxury! Management & Team As a Hotelier myself with 40+ years’ experience, everything starts with Management! They are exceptional, to say the least, and worth every penny, if not more! The Management and Team will stop at nothing to ensure all your needs and desires are met during your stay giving much prestige to La Maison Arabe label, they do not miss an inch. I salute them! Truly 5-star excellence! Guest Relations Although the load factor is low due to COVID, nothing is sparred with relation to obtaining the high-end luxury at La Maison Arabe. They are fully COVID compliant. The grounds are magnificently kept with gardens surround. It is a true paradise. Service The service is most impressive from all involved; from the GM, Sales, Front Desk, Wait Staff, Maitre De, and Bellman. All are fully involved in the success of the Hotel and are very happy to try and accommodate all requests. Everyone from right at the entrance and lovely staff welcoming you on arrival offering assistance with your luggage to the wait staff and room upkeep staff are committed to exceeding your expectations with their genuine and discreet service that defines signature La Maison Arabe Luxury. The hospitality of the Management and staff is “Outstanding”. Location The hotel has a great location with breathtaking views. Located a short walk from Jemaa el Fna Square. Bar/Dining The Bartenders are very knowledgeable and friendly. The service for breakfast and world-class dining is outstanding from the Maitre D to the wait staff. They are eager to please trying to accommodate even personal choice requests with a “Special Touch” and elegant silverware to boot. They have the best of Moroccan cuisine with specially curated dishes prepared savoring international flavors enhanced by the ambiance of your delightful surroundings especially around the pool. Cooking Class Enjoy taking a wonderful class with a world-renowned chef and explore the exquisite secrets of the cuisine. Accessibility/Transportation Transportation is a breeze, as they offer very professional transportation options to include day trips, etc. The concierge is pleased to assist with any private tours, etc. Accommodations Suites are exquisitely decorated with the finest. High ceilings, luxury bedding, and linens. Bathrooms are equipped with all amenities and richness to include marble and granite. The balconies give the warmth and feeling as if you are in your own private exclusive estate. Each room is furnished with gorgeous antique furniture, works of art, and sculptured ceilings synonymous with the charm and elegance of Morocco. Pool/Spa/Gym The pools are spectacular, some with magnificent views, almost picture-perfect. The Spa has a great team that is professionally staffed with very high standards including a Turkish Hammam (steam room), and a variety of specialty treatment therapies. Overall I highly recommend and salute the La Maison Arabe as a place to relax and unwind to enjoy their luxurious hospitality. This hotel offers the highest level of service with great value for those who choose to visit Marrakech. It is a must-visit to enjoy and experience the distinct “TASTE of LUXURY”! Do not miss trying to stay at the best of the best to experience the “Lavishness” and “Luscious Cuisine”.
