The Palmeraie is 8km from Marrakech; around 15 minutes’ drive.
There are 13 double rooms, 12 suites, 7 premium suites and 5 private houses with private pools. All rooms are air-conditioned and have a flat-screen TV, mini-bar and wi-fi.
There’s a lunch bar near the pool; an internal bar and international restaurant; a salon and a boutique; as well as various seating areas – but the magic of Les Deux Tours is the garden, which features endless places for quiet contemplation…including four-poster beds for lounging under the shade of trees.
Eating and drinking
An inspired buffet breakfast featuring everything from fresh Moroccan pancakes to cakes, pastries, candied fruit and carob pods is served at the restaurant; lunch in the Pergola bar/eating area near the pool; and dinner in the Salammbo…or on a private table in the gardens, if that’s what takes your fancy.
There’s a 28m swimming pool plus another 9 pools connected to particular villas and residences; the spa includes traditional hammam with hot bath and two steam rooms, plus massage area. There are three free shuttle-buses to the medina, every day.
Staff are well trained and friendly, and many have excellent English.

Singles, couples, families and groups of friends. The hotel attracts an international crowd and is popular with non-residents for long, leisurely lunches overlooking the pool.
