Fairmont Royal Palm, Marrakech

Just outside of Marrakech, the Fairmont Royal Palm is a dream-like oasis where gigantic palm trees rise up out of swimming pools, snow capped mountains brood in the distance and stunning Berber design envelops you in all things Moroccan. With a modern but distinctly Moroccan flair its 124 rooms make it an ideal place for a relaxing retreat in the North African sun. After a day in the souk, The Royal Palm welcomes you back to dine on exquisite Moroccan cuisine at restaurant Al Aïn and enjoy a spot of jazz over a cocktail or two at Le Bar. This is how to do Marrakech in style.


Only 20 minutes from Marrakech Airport and half an hour from the medina, the Fairmont Royal Palm is a luxurious base from which to explore Marrakech. Balancing convenience and tranquillity, it is a haven for those who want to visit the city but do not want to stay in the heart of it. Wander the souks, check out the Yves Saint Laurent museum and smell the roses in the Jardin Majorelle before heading back to the Royal Palm in the evening for some quiet respite.

Your room

The Royal Palm has 124 rooms and suites as well as 10 villas that offer total privacy thanks to their private pools, landscaped gardens and private hammams. All rooms are decorated using deep browns, burnt oranges and tawny beiges to give a comforting yet sophisticated vibe that fits in perfectly with the hotel’s surroundings. With views of the impressive Atlas Mountains and palm tree filled gardens, these rooms are quintessential Moroccan luxury.

Why we like it?

The Fairmont Royal Palm is a peaceful oasis and it is this serenity that caught our attention. Boasting the only in-resort golf course in the region, world-class sporting facilities and a Spa offering Moroccan argan oil treatments and hot stone therapy, it is the perfect antidote when the bustle of the medina becomes too much. It even has a farm nestled on its grounds full of palm, olive and orange trees where you can take cooking classes. How tranquil.
