La Maison Arabe

Marrakech & the South

Rating: Deluxe    Price from: £580pp for three nights including flights from London, transfers and city tour.

La Maison Arabe overview

For style, comfort, excellent cuisine,a great position, and for a bit of a treat really, La Maison Arabe would be on our list!

La Maison Arabe opened as a restaurant in 1946 and in 1998 in became the first riad-hotel in the medina. It still has a deservedly good name for its restaurants, and now also offers Moroccan cooking classes which you can experience whether you're staying at the riad or not.

All of the 26 rooms and suites are unique in design and many have a private terrace and fireplace. The riad is in the Bab Doukkala district just 10 minutes walk from the Djemma el Fna, Marrakech's main square. 

A large heated swimming pool is in a walled courtyard with a sundeck surrounded by flowers and olive trees. 

There is a superb hammam and spa here, offering relaxing and pampering through a variety of treatments. 

La Maison Arabe also has the unique advantage of a 'country club and private gardens' just outside of the city if you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech for a day. There is a complimentary shuttle bus which can whisk you here in about 15 minutes. There are 2 acres of charming grounds and gardens  plus a lovely swimming pool, a restaurant and three 27-hole golf courses nearby. The private gardens can also be used for private parties and celebrations.

For a short break in Marrakech ask about our 3 night breaks. Based on low season prices and the best value room for two people you can stay here from £580pp for three nights including flights from London, transfers and a half day city tour.


Open:  La Maison Arabe is open all year.

Location:  La Maison Arabe is located in the medina in Marrakech just a 10 minute walk from the Djemma el Fna.

Rooms:  There are 12 rooms and 14 suites, all with air conditioning, heating and en-suite bathrooms. Amenities include satellite TV, minibar, safe and Wi-Fi internet access.  The bathrooms are mostly marble and granite and have modern fittings. Most rooms open onto shaded terraces and patios and have a fireplace. La Maison Arabe also offers a private penthouse residence, the Douiria, which has 3 rooms, a suite and 2 large terraces.

Activities:  Use the riad as a base explore Marrakech with its souks, mosques, palaces, gardens and main square. There are numerous cafes and restaurants.

La Maison Arabe is known for its food and offers popular cooking workshops where guests can learn to create authentic Moroccan dishes using ingredients from the organic gardens of the Private Gardens located just outside Marrakech.

Facilities:  There is an excellent spa with 2 hammams (Moroccan steam baths) and 5 massage rooms. The spa offers a variety of body treatments, manicures, pedicures and facials. 

There is a good-sized swimming pool with a sunbathing area in the walled courtyard. There are numerous patios and terraces. 

The Country Club and Private Gardens, also owned by the hotel’s owner, is about 15 minutes away. This is reserved exclusively for guests of the riad, a country retreat offering gardens, a swimming pool, restaurant, Kasbah and 3 golf courses nearby.   

There is a boutique selling a range of local handicrafts located just around the corner from the riad.

Dining:  Breakfast can be continental or Moroccan and is served either in-room or buffet-style on the sundeck by the pool. There are 2 restaurants. Le Restaurant specialises in Moroccan cuisine with dinners accompanied by Arab-Andalusian guitar music. Les Trois Saveurs offers French, Moroccan and Asian food. Both restaurants have indoor and outdoor dining areas. The 1930s-inspired Piano Bar is the ideal place to enjoy an intimate pre-dinner drink and sample some tapas while enjoying jazz music.

Children:  Children of all ages are welcome, but as most guests are adults, it is requested that children are quiet and well-behaved and respect the privacy of other guests.  

Health:  Marrakech is not a malarial area.

Communication:  There is Wi-Fi internet access throughout the riad, and mobile signals are good throughout the city.
