Guests can enjoy the vistas from a series of courtyards, terraces, gardens and swimming pools, or one of the 26 beautifully decorated rooms with its own terrace. This unique boutique hotel embodies the feeling of serenity and calm, yet it is only 45 minutes from the bustling center of Marrakech, and offers an abundance of excursions and treks to explore the stunning area.
