Berber Lodge, Marrakech

Slow it down and embrace the simple life with a low-key getaway to Berber Lodge in the Moroccan countryside. Nestled among centuries-old olive trees, it offers a refreshing change of pace from the buzz of Marrakech’s souks, as you unwind amid sprawling lawns of olive trees and winding garden paths. A true escape from the everyday, each of the nine rustic-chic lodges offers a taste of traditional Berber living whilst, sprinkled with luxurious touches, also ensures ultimate comfort and relaxation.

Location

Whilst Berber Lodge lies just twenty minutes outside of Marrakech, you really couldn’t feel further away from it all here. A short hop away from Lake Takerkourst, swap the thrum of the Medina for the peace of Morocco’s natural side. Tucked just outside the village of Oumes, stepping into Berber Lodge is akin to stepping into an authentic Berber village. Pink-hued lodges are set amongst olive groves and interspersed with the occasional courtyard and garden lawn, creating a feeling of utter tranquillity and romance.

Your Room

Artfully combining traditional Berber heritage with chic design and luxurious touches, the nine lodges invite serenity and relaxation. Stylishly simple but incredibly spacious, with traditional chimneys and private terraces, you’ll instantly feel at home here. Sink into the marble bathtub or cosy up by the fire, before falling back into the comfortable bed in your own private oasis. You’ll feel everyday stresses melting away in no time.

Why we like it

There’s something just so magical about Berber Lodge and we’re putting it down to the elegance of simplicity. Built using traditional earthen bricks, the design is deliberately pared-back yet brought to life with colourful vintage fabrics and gleaming marble. In the kitchens, simple Moroccan dishes are transformed through an ever-changing menu with emphasis on fresh produce from the Lodge’s organic garden. Gazing out from the main lounge to the tranquil pool set amongst green lawns and shaded by trees, we have to pinch ourselves every time we arrive.
