“Taj Palace Marrakech - superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

What a treat to stay in such an amazing hotel! Although still under a soft opening the service levels, friendliness of staff and beautiful setting made this a very special stay. Guestroom was 80 sq mtrs, the decor quite stunning and fabulous views in every direction especially towards the Atlas Mountains..Stayed in the main hotel (as opposed to the Riads) and tried both the Indian and Moroccan restaurants - both fabulous food especially the Indian restaurant where they had a taster menu. Staff are all well trained and attention to detail excellent. Would love to return to experience the Spa once it is opened - it promises Ayurvedic treatments amongst others. A fab place for a honeymoon or wedding!

Room Tip: All the rooms are huge with superb huge verandahs, large bathrooms and walk in wardrobes but I suspe...

I had the chance of staying at the Taj for two nights. The hotel and service were simply superb.
From the arrival to the check out everything was perfect. A great hotel with an outstanding decoration and a superb and extremely efficient service.
We have booked a "standard" room in the main building. What a nice surprise to see that your standard room is approximately 80 meters square.
In the room there are complimentary "Hermes" brand amenities...
I will definitely stay over at the Taj on my next visit to Marrakesh.
Thank you again to all the Taj team!

Room Tip: Standard rooms are amazing...

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 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.
