Lavish five-star palatial Marrakech retreat with an amazing spa and cookery school - with breakfast, cooking class, and travel
Morocco is a fascinating country, with medinas, mosques, medieval architecture, mountains, and so much more to keep you occupied. The jewel in its crown? Marrakech, the cultural capital of Africa, which is full to the brim with bazaars and historic architecture just waiting to be appreciated. Experience it all with an escape to the five-star La Maison Arabe, a legendary raid that's been welcoming discerning travellers through its doors since 1947.
With its mesmerising architecture, outdoor courtyard pool, and cooling terracotta interiors, you can leave the outside world behind as you enjoy a treatment at the spa, or learn the secrets of Moroccan cooking at a cookery lesson included in this escape. Add to this lazy afternoons sipping mint tea in the secret garden of the hotel's Country Club just a few minutes away in the Palmerie, and you'll find all the peace and tranquility you could ask for.

La Maison Arabe
- Marrakesh, Morocco
Founded in the 1940s, La Maison Arabe has been the number one choice for luxurious living in Marrakech pretty much ever since. This Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best hotel is traditionally styled, blending elegant and authentic Moroccan décor with contemporary comfort. Enjoy walking in the footsteps of some of history’s great names, with former patrons including the likes of Ernest Hemmingway, Jackie Kennedy, and Winston Churchill.
Gastronomy goes all the way back to this hotel’s roots, when it was opened as the first restaurant in the medina that served foreigners. Today, two excellent restaurants and a tapas bar deliver sublime Moroccan cuisine in an ornate setting.
The spa here is a temple of peace, serenity and rejuvenation. Start your soothing session off in one of the hammams, before booking a traditional Moroccan massage that uses the very best natural products.
Situated in a secluded area of La Maison Arabe, the Junior douiria (a small house adjoining the traditional riad) is perfect for a peaceful retreat. This private penthouse residence offers six rooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom with shower. The douiria also has a private terrace for the exclusive use of guests staying in these rooms to relax outdoors. Rooms are available for individual booking. For complete privacy, the entire douiria can also be reserved for an exclusive group or family getaway.
La Maison Arabe has since become renowned for its cooking workshops, which are open to in-house guests and all food lovers visiting Marrakech. Learn step-by- step the secrets of authentic Moroccan cuisine from our dadas (traditional Moroccan cooks), using modern, everyday kitchen equipment to make precious recipes passed down from generation to generation.
