Palais Namaskar

Country Boutique Hotels near Marrakech, Marrakech

Sensational hotel in the beautiful Bab Atlas area of Marrakech's palm groves.


ABOUT: A decadent hotel in the Palmeraie’s beautiful Bab Atlas area, 20 minutes’ drive from central Marrakech.  Seclusion, perfect panoramas and palatial grandeur are the order of the day here: musky gardens and a lake vie for attention with deep carpets, damask fabrics and Murano chandeliers.  Dusk is especially lovely: log fires crackle, lanterns flicker and champagne flutes clink in celebration of a bolthole very well chosen.


ROOMS: Offering a modernist update on the mosaics and ornate hand-carvings found in most Moroccan hotels, Namaskar’s indulgent rooms, suites, villas and two palaces blend Oriental decorative principles with contemporary design.  Tan-coloured and spacious, most residences boast either a private pool or outdoor Jacuzzi, while Bang & Olufsen plasma-screen TVs, iPod docks, Wi-Fi, rain showers and king-size beds are all regulation provisions.


FACILITIES: The large main pool is flanked by daybeds and oversized cushions; nearby is a vast Feng Shui-focused spa with six treatment cabins, plus a fitness centre with optional personal trainers and yoga teachers.  The kilometre-long perimeter path makes for a great jogging circuit, too.  Two restaurants cover Moroccan, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine; dinners can be taken in the gardens, lakeside or on private terraces. Be sure to nurse a nightcap on the rooftop bar afterwards. 


EXTRA INFO:Golf, quad-biking, camel and horse-riding, trekking or cycling in the Atlas Mountains, paragliding and hot-air balloon rides can all be arranged. 

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.
