We stayed here last year when it was owned by the Taj group of hotels. We stayed in the Palace suite, which was very spacious and overlooked the pool. The balcony was large. We had lunch and dinner quite a few times in the balcony and enjoyed the view of the gardens, pool and Tatra mountains. The service was not... More

Travelled with my daughter for one week to the Sahara Palace. We were speechless when we arrived, it is stunning, everything about the place is stunning, it's no wonder it was used as a set in the second Sex and the City film, although I still haven't seen the film!! The rooms are huge and so luxurious and the staff... More

While we loved the hotel which is just stunning; the management of the hotel is appalling and don't even get me started about the food! We got charged £50 for a meal that was atrocious and consisted of spaghetti with a tiny bit of cheese (it was meant to have a sauce and tuna) and pomme frites for me (I'm... More

Like many said, the hotel is very much what you see in the pictures. So beautiful and grand, truly feels like a palace. However; also like many said, poor management handling the hotel. We spent the first 2 weeks of May there, which means beginning of summer. We would wake up every single day with the bathroom full of insects.... More

On first sight, the Sahara Palace (formerly the Taj Palace) is shockingly beautiful; Venetian plaster walls, immense chandeliers, velvet, silk gold. It was, possibly, the most beautiful hotel I had ever walked into. But quickly, the signs of neglect surface. There is an attention to detail missing as well as some fundamental comfort issue that must be resolved for an... More

A real luxury experience - i simply cannot put into words how amazing this hotel is. The service was fantastic and the pool was just beautiful. Only a short-distance from the downtown areas, there's a shuttle bus that runs to it. Really, really loved this hotel, definitely the best hotel I've ever stayed in!

We may not be a Lord/Lady or a Dukes/duchess but as just ordinary Brits we appreciate the finer things in life and this hotel provided them in abundance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Serenely nestled between the soothing Palmeraie landscape of palm and olive trees and the awe-inspiring Atlas Mountains, Sahara Palace Marrakech has been meticulously crafted with a vivid blend of Moroccan, Indian and Moorish themes that unfold from a magnificent Palace block to the four exclusive and expansive Riads. With its five glorious alabaster-white domes resting atop the luxuriant main building, the Sahara Palace Marrakech is regal and resplendent in this breathtaking Moroccan landscape. The hotel unfolds like a beautiful painting from galleries of hand painted frescoed wood ceilings and ornaments, restaurants of rich colours and texture, to the serenity and calmness of the Marie Iod Spa. The high vaulted lobby, highlighted by a sparkling 22 meter chandelier centerpiece and three kilometers of gold leaf adorning various ceilings, cornices, furniture and ornaments, makes this a truly royal experience. This palatial desert oasis features 161 well-appointed, spacious guest rooms, including 25 luxurious suites, spread between the magnificent main Palace and four exclusive Riads. All rooms and suites enjoy stunning views over the Atlas Mountains, the Palmeraie desert landscape or the calming pool and gardens. Our celebrated chefs have gathered the finest ingredients that span the Moroccan, Mediterranean and Indian in one unique destination. Our guests can wine and dine in some of the most stylish and charismatic restaurants and bars in Marrakech, whilst the warm and welcoming service makes every moment memorable. The hotel houses the renowned Marie Iod Spa spread across 3,800 square meters with 14 treatment rooms & two extensive hammams in line with the Moroccan tradition. The spa experience includes dedicated massage therapies, signature Moroccan experiences, personalized coaching services and a full range of esthetic treatments. The Yoga Temple further enhances the overall experience. ... more   less
