Owner description: Nicely designed and maintained gardens, similar to those of Generalife in Granada, Spain. It’s a good place to recoup from the intensity of the market atmosphere.

The Majorelle was restored by Yves St. Laurent and his life partner Pierre Berge. An Oasis of desert species, the garden is full of surprises and very old (and large) Cacti as well as palms and bamboo species rare and both ancient and newly planted. The canopy of leaves above you dapples the ground around you and creates the sensation of being somewhere you've never been except in a dream. Water features and fountains cool in the shadows and obscure the sounds of the surrounding city. There are two structures painted a startling dense blue, one a viewing pavillion and the other an exotic little building housing a Berber Museum showing St.Laurent's extraordinary collection of Berber Jewellry and Tribal Costumes. There is an excellent bookshop and photographic prints at reasonable prices. Around the back of the Museum is a courtyard cafe with excellent food and refreshments. We spent about 3 hours or more in this garden adding lunch in our reluctance to leave the place.
St. Laurent was born in Africa and built his getaway home adjacent to the garden. You can glimpse it with it's fanciful turrets and terraces through the greenery. It is not open to the public. The garden requires a modest charge to visit. An absolute must.

Beautifully presented. Well tended and not a leaf out of place. It could be a little larger as it gets quite crowded during the day.

this was a lovely little haven with peace and quiet. A lovely little cafe where we enjoyed a good coffee, it also sells food.

Really lovely and worth a visit- fantastic shop and gallery- didn't try cafe - looked nice tho- not too dear to enter 50 dirams - very peaceful and great for photos. Quite a few tourists - but marrakech is a busy place so this seems tranquil!

So beautiful and so well maintained. An oasis even if it's one of the most visited attraction. The colors, the plants will blow you away. Merci monsieur St Laurent.
