We have stayed at Tigmi many times in the last five years, both to review the hotel in a journalistic capacity, and to run yoga and meditation retreats here.
Previous reviews that state the venue is 'boring' are missing the point. The raison d'etre of this hotel is peace and quiet, with a lovely small spa, two swimming pools and numerous tucked-away terraces on which to curl up and read, or snooze. It is certainly not a place to come to if you're looking for action, or shopping - and all the better for it.
I have stayed in six different rooms now; each has been exceptionally large, with lovely Berber rugs, Moroccan furniture and huge, comfy beds. I especially recommend the suite, and room 25, for its private setting.
More than any other hotel I have stayed in, there is a huge sense of space - bedrooms are spread apart from one another, mostly with outdoor furniture, for gazing at birds, or reading. Across the road, where the old part of Tigmi is (the setting for the yoga studio and most of the suites), the sense of space increases, with plenty of fascinating hidden terraces and viewing points, from where the Atlas mountains feel very close.
Food is very good, and has noticeably improved recently, and the staff are unfailingly warm and friendly.
Tigmi is (refreshingly) almost the antithesis of a conventional hotel; it's quirky, rustic, and feels far more like a big guesthouse than a hotel. Solo female travellers will feel completely comfortable and looked-after here.
Do try a hammam and/or massage treatment whilst you're here - it adds to the tranquil, slow-down-a-few-gears nature of a stay at this quite unique, restful place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tigmi is a place of quietude to listen to silence, slow down and rediscover that precarious sense of wellbeing. The house sits on the brow of a Berber hamlet (Tagadert) in the Haouz plain, positioned between Marrakech and the High Atlas mountains. It is just 24 kms (15 miles) from the Medieval city, yet a world apart in the peace you will discover. A true retreat from the hectic lifestyles we have all become used to. Tigmi offers guests the opportunity to unwind and relax but is close enough to the Red City that guests can pop in and shop the Souk, see the Majorelle Gardens during the day and the Djemaa el Fna square at sunset. ... more less
