Very well run riad in the Bab Doukkala area of the medina of Marrakech. Choice of Moroccan or French restaurants and lovely spa.
La Maison Arabe is located in the Bab Doukkala area of the medina which means that it has easy access by car and is perfect for going into the nearby souks to shop and explore this fascinating labyrinth of medina streets. The rooms and suites are well appointed and offer one of the best levels of comfort in a riad. There is a choice of French or Moroccan food and service is slick and professional. The riad has a swimming pool but also has its own country club (15 minutes outside the city) where you can go to enjoy a day with lunch by a lovely pool in restful olive groves. There is a free shuttle to take you there and back. Cooking lessons are offered (at extra cost) at the riad with the hotel's chef (very popular).
From Kirstin B who stayed here in February 2013
One of the best parts of the short trip was the cooking class at La Maison Arabe. Wafaa Amagui, the workshop manager, made sure everything ran smoothly and I really appreciated how the class was geared to our level of experience. Many times, the classes are watered down and not so insightful, but it was not the case here. I highly recommend this class to anyone who enjoys eating Moroccan food.
