Maison MK is one of our favourite contemporary luxury hotels in Marrakech, with a wonderful blend of Islamic and 21st-century design. There is an overriding feel of unbeatable decadence from this riad and, coupled with a central location, you’re able to instantly embrace the more adventurous side to this busy and spirited city.
Location Location Location. It’s important to be in the right spot in Marrakech, and with maison mk you’ll find yourself in the perfect place. Set back from the hustle and bustle, maison mk is found on one of the main cobbled streets of the most affluent areas in the medina. With views of the distant Atlas Mountains from the spectacular 3 tier roof terrace, you won’t feel as though you’re right in the heart of the medina- but you couldn’t be more wrong. Located just three minutes from the Djemma el Fna and all the best souks, you’re never further than walking distance from all the Moroccan action. In true Moroccan style, the riad houses a central courtyard that all the suites face into. The walls are a metre thick so as to ensure you feel suitably removed from the sounds, sights and smells without becoming totally detached from of what presumably drew you to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech in the first place.
All five bedrooms and one master suite maintain a running theme of stylish decor, adding to the sense of fluidity felt throughout maison mk. Rose petals are scattered throughout your room adding to the already romantic setting. Colour themes ooze a rich warm spice palette, that create an indulgent yet comfortable environment fit for a King (and Queen). Each suite is the epitome of indulgent chic, with huge back-lit beds, unique works of art on the wall and rich flashes of fabrics and colour adding to the supremely calming ambience. Bathrooms have huge pod tadelkt baths, monsoon-like showers, deep fluffy towels and robes, beautifully presented organic bath products, complimentary mineral water and a professional hairdryer. Beds by the King’s own bed-maker, super-luxurious 600-thread Egyptian cotton sheets, smart flexible bedside lamps, exotic beaded coat hangers, fully stocked minibar, full length mirrors – every detail has been well and truly thought of . A local mobile phone with useful numbers as well as a personalised mini bar are just other delicate touches from maison mk that makes your stay here as stress-free as possible.
Why we like it
The food at Maison MK is top notch, providing a scrumptious five course menu to evening diners. The fairy-lit teardrop shaped pool and a fantastic spa with two dedicated treatment rooms and professional full time beauty staff is the ultimate way to wind down. Embrace culture with some Moroccan style pampering- we recommend the 45 minute luxury hammam – a traditional gommage (a scrub down to you and me) with black soap, sugared argan oil, a traditional clay mask mixed with rose flower water– totally rejuvenating, glowing and soft.
