Sofitel Marrakech

City Hotels in Marrakech, Marrakech

139-room hotel with spa


Marrakech’s residential area, L’Hivernage, is also home to several international hotels - and the Sofitel is one of the best.  A blend of Moorish magnificence and French flair, the five-star resort particularly suits families thanks to its facilities, separate children’s pool and (unrivalled among the big hotels) proximity to Marrakech’s old town and chief sights.  To top it all off, there’s a lovely garden area and spectacular views of the frosted Atlas Mountains.


There are 139 rooms and suites, each in red and amber hues, and each with private balconies or terraces, as well as air-conditioning, internet sockets and satellite TVs. 


In addition to two pools (a main one and a kids’ one), there’s the So Spa, providing Oriental-style treatments and massage, a fitness centre, a sauna, another heated pool and a Dessange Paris beauty salon.  The Sofitel also claims an equally impressive array of food and drink venues including gourmet cuisine in L’Orangerie and (our favourite, obviously) Le Lawrence, a low-lit piano bar that serves cocktails and wine to the tune of gentle jazz music. 


An opulent, languid ambience exists here: it comes from the orange trees; from all the polished marble and the arches with amethyst blooms; and from the many cushion-heavy sunbeds, trickling fountains and romantic, candlelit corners.

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.
