Luxury paradise in a stunning palmeraie villa.
Decor aficionados, indulge yourselves! Each of the 10 bedrooms of the luxurious main house is unique, designed by Meryanne Loum-Martin, internationally renowned for her sober chic and eclectic mix of styles with an African twist. You’ll find colourful woven Moroccan and Senegalese fabrics and rugs, handpicked antique objets d’art, Syrian chests and tables with mother-of-pearl inlays and much more...
The bathrooms are decked out in earth-tone tadelakt with shiny copper sinks and stocked with sweet-smelling, herbal bath products. Some rooms boast fireplaces, canopy beds and private terraces and there is also a comfy rooftop terrace for lounging, with superb views of the snow-capped Atlas mountains and the neighbouring palm grove.
In keeping with traditional Medina style, the bedrooms are located around a central courtyard but with glass doors leading to terraces on the outside of the house they feel lighter and airier than usual. The ground floor rooms have king-size beds and spacious (though shared) verandahs; the remaining rooms are located upstairs with access to the roof terrace.
The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.
When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.
The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
