Also known by its French name Dix Neuf La Ksour, this oasis of riad calm strikes an elegant balance between modern European chic and ancient North African hospitality, with reminders of the old world accentuated by clean crisp lines. The sun terrace looks out over Marrakech with the inspirational back drop of the Atlas Mountains on the horizon. Onsite cooking lessons, a library, a pool and a central garden mean there is no end to the ways Dix Neuf can aid your relaxation.
In the heart of the medina in Marrakech Dix Neuf La Ksour sits moments from various souks and boasts vistas of the city which take in the mountains and the minarets, as well as the daily life of the frenetic city.
With only six rooms in the riad you can expect a calm, quiet and stylish atmosphere throughout the hotel and this is only accentuated in your room. Warm dark woods combine with pristine white walls and marble in the en-suite, to create a beautifully simple elegance. These light and airy spaces are equipped with wood burning fires for the cooler months and large ornate windows to ensure a cooling breeze during summer.
Why we like it
We love the balance of old and new. and the serenity. To paraphrase Kipling, keep your head while all about you are losing theirs; this place will restore you and shelter you from Marrakech’s frenzied markets and squares for the perfect Moroccoan retreat.
