Overview

Situated on a stunning private estate just seven miles southeast of central Marrakech, Royal Palm Marrakech is a large and inviting luxury hotel with extensive facilities, pretty lawns dotted with olive trees, and spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains. With 135 suites and villas set over three floors, a large heated swimming pool, a spa, a golf course and a fitness centre, there’s plenty to do both on site at the hotel, and in the wider surrounding area. Although the service might be somewhat patchy at times, this is one of Marrakech’s best and consequently most expensive properties, and it’s certainly worth pushing the boat out if you can.

The hotel’s spacious communal areas are decorated in a traditional Moroccan style with a sleek, modern finish, and comprise a sumptuous bar and cigar lounge, and three restaurants. Breakfast is served in Le Caravane brasserie, dinner in the elegant Al Ain restaurant, and light lunches are available at L'Olivier, set beside the pool in the gardens. The 25 metre heated pool is a delight, and there’s an extensive Sports Centre featuring tennis, racquet ball, and squash courts, various fitness and cardio rooms, and a pilates studio. For any guest wishing to venture into Marrakech, the hotel provides a day-time shuttle bus to both the old and new towns, although note that advance booking is required and private transport should be arranged in the evenings.

There are a total of 135 suites and villas set over three floors, all featuring ensuite bathrooms and a spacious terrace or balcony with views over the gardens and mountains beyond. There’s an enormous range of room types to choose from, from standard Deluxe rooms, to Junior and Senior Suites, a Penthouse Suite, and a super luxurious Presidential Suite complete with a kitchenette, and a large open plan lounge and dining area which houses a fireplace and leads out onto a terrace with al fresco dining facilities for six. This suite boasts two huge bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom and solarium, and one with an outdoor jacuzzi. Laundry services and Wi-Fi are available throughout.

Children are welcome, and families have plenty of accommodation options to choose from. The designated Family Suite features two separate ensuite bedrooms with a shared balcony. There’s also a Luxury Family Suite made up of interconnecting Junior and Senior suites, complete with a shared lounge area. Last but not least, the Prince Villas are two-bedroom family apartments featuring their own private walled garden complete with pool, a Turkish bath (hammam), BBQ facilities, and outdoor dining area. Babysitters can be arranged through the hotel with 24 hours’ notice, and there’s a Kid’s Club for children up to 12 years of age, although note that children under the age of 3 must be accompanied by a parent or babysitter.

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you for all your help, advice and guidance in organising our holiday. As this was not our first booking with Tourdust we were confident that all our transfers would work perfectly and they did - everything ran so smoothly! The riad in Marrakesh was stunning - a truly beautiful oasis of calm in such a busy, bustling city. As you can imagine, we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our room as outside was so hot! I was nervous about walking through the souks at night, but as they were well lit we felt perfectly safe and found our confidence grew in navigating the journey home each time we ventured out. When we arrived at our lodge in the Atlas Mountains we were blown away by the scenery. The views were amazing and the beautiful lodge gardens were the perfect place to sit and relax before taking a dip in the pool. Our day trek was truly amazing - no small thanks to our guide Rashid, who was so helpful and knowledgable. The lunch in the traditional Berber village was delicious and we were were made to feel so welcome. The home owner showed us how to make bread and then cooked it for us in her traditional clay oven. This was a memory we will never forget as we stood surrounded by her chickens and goats watching her use her bare hands to prepare the fire! Our night in the desert was breathtaking. The camel ride at sunset was so incredible and the quad biking the next morning was brilliant fun. I am so glad we added in these extras as they really made the experience! We finally made it to our hotel at the coast, where the surf lessons were a hit and the hotel was a great place to relax and read! Thank you again for all your help. We would definitely recommend Tourdust to all our friends and family. Tanya

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
