In Marrakech, where opulence and luxury reign, there is no shortage of hotels and riads offering travellers an Arabian Nights experience. Here, Culture Trip has put together our list of architectural gems that are sure to delight even the most discerning guest.

1. La Mamounia

Known as the grande dame of Marrakech, La Mamounia recently underwent a major restoration project and its interior has been redesigned by the famed Jacques Garcia. There are spectacular rooms for every taste where you can gaze out at either the famous Koutoubia Mosque or the lush Mamounia gardens and their bougainvilleas, cacti and unique barbary figs. Just steps away from the Marrakech medina, and yet in an entirely different world from its hustle and bustle, La Mamounia is perfect for exploring both the old and new city.

2. Royal Mansour

Resort, Spa Hotel, Hotel, Riad

Built entirely by hand by the country’s finest craftsmen, the elegance and grandeur of the Royal Mansour doesn’t stop at its mind-blowing reception hall. The hotel is made up of individual Moroccan riads and each private residence boasts its own central courtyard, living room, bar and dining room. The spacious and luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms take up the riad’s first floor while the rooftop terrace provides guests with a private swimming pool and unforgettable views over Marrakech.

3. Mandarin Oriental

Resort, Chain Hotel, Spa Hotel

Surrounded by fragrant gardens and olive groves, the Mandarin Oriental is Marrakech’s newest resort just minutes away from the city centre. Mandarin Oriental is a perfect option for families or couples on a romantic getaway and each of the luxurious suites and villas feature a king-size bed, marble bathtub and a plunge pool for those hotter days. Don’t forget to also savour the breathtaking view of the Atlas Mountains from your own private terrace!

5. Amanjena Resort

Arched doorways filled with soft light and a gorgeous plunge pool mirroring the surrounding palm trees make entering the Amanjena Resort a true One Thousand and One Nights experience. You only have to step further inside, into the pavilions, to be amazed – king-size beds, romantic fireplaces, plunge pools and private gardens are all standard features. Built to resemble a sultan’s palace, we understand why you may never want to leave.
