Star rating:
5 star hotel

4.6

An ultra-seek spa hotel in the countryside.

Only around a quarter of an hour from the medina, the Sirayane Hotel and Spa is a world away from your ‘typical’ Marrakchi accommodation – not least because of its breathtakingly beautiful modern architecture. Designed by leading Algerian architect Imaad Rahmouni, the hotel is ultra-sleek and yet somehow retains the same elegance and grandeur as the best traditional Islamic buildings. Stepping through the main entrance gives you an instant sense of wellbeing, and the flow through the building to the stylish bar and restaurant and out to the pool and palm gardens – with views towards the snow-capped Atlas – warms the very soul.

Location

The Sirayane (in Arabic, the name of a river in paradise) occupies a 2 hectare plot in the middle of fields, a 15 minute drive from the edge of medina.

Bedrooms

There are 28 rooms in total; 16 of them are like mini-bungalows with private gardens and there are four bigger suites, each with a private garden and pool. Eight rooms with private terrace occupy the first floor of the two-storey main building. Flat-screen TVs, DVD players, mini-bars, wi-fi and air conditioning come as standard, and the smallest rooms are 30 square metres, rising to 55 square metres for the two deluxe suites. Even the smaller rooms have a good sense of space, and share access to the pool. Go for a poolside room rather than one in the main building, if you can.

Public areas

Despite their grey concrete construction and ‘zen’ design, the restaurant and lounge bar, like the spa complex, share a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the emphasis is very much on comfort as well as style. The 30m pool has a heated area, and is surrounded by ultra-cosy Italian loungers.

 

Eating and drinking

Moroccan and international cuisine is available throughout the day, along with a good selection of beers, wines and cocktails, which are served with appetizers. Evenings feature lounge music and occasional DJ nights (for example at New Year).

Leisure facilities

The spa centre takes up a floor space of 400 square metres and includes three treatment and massage rooms, a hairdresser, traditional hammam and a fitness centre. There is also a paddle tennis court and a jogging track. Cookery courses can be arranged, and there are free daily shuttle services to the medina.

Service

With a maximum of 56 guests staying at the hotel at any given time and a staff of 42, there’s no shortage of personnel to take care of your every need.

Couples, families and groups of friends; it’s also possible to hire the whole hotel for weddings or conferences.
