We were referred here to use the spa by the front desk at our hotel and boy were we happy we were. We were collected and dropped off as part of a package. From the city centre it took about 10 -15 minutes to get to. As we drove up I said to my husband oh please let it be that beautiful red building. And it was!
We enjoyed an amazing hammam and massage and then relaxed by the pool for the remainder of the afternoon. It felt like the most peaceful and beautiful spot in Marrakech and our experience was made so much more pleasant by the fact that we were being treated like we were the most important people there! We had lunch by the pool which was lovely.
After this day we thought, wow! Why didn't we stay there? I so wish we had known about this place before I had come to Marrakech. While the hotel is in the area that is known as Palm Groves, it is only a short drive into the main city for some of the tourist activities. Other tourist activities are in Palm Grove anyway. For example camel rides or golf.
Anyways! The part that really just made us so enthralled with our overall experience with El Miria is when we decided to return on our last day in Marrakech!
The hotel could not have been more gracious! We were greeted by who I can only assume was the owner or manager. As we were leaving directly from the hotel we needed a place to store our bags so they gave us a room to get changed etc.
We spent the day relaxing by the pool and had massages. It was great. A fabulous end to the trip. They also agreed a great rate to take us to the airport. This saved us the trouble of being ripped off by a taxi driver if we had done it ourselves.
The massages were great and the therapists were so nice. All and all it was a great place to spend our holiday in Marrakech.
