Owner description: The riad-museum Le Jardin Secret is one of the largest and most ancient palaces of the medina of Marrakech. It is a place that has kept ancient structures intact that are of an extraordinary cultural value, linked to the art of gardens, architecture and Arab hydraulics. Popularly known as Riad Loukrissi, it has been the sumptuous residence of the Qaid U-Bihi who was the head of the Haha tribe. The riad rises up in the Mouassine quarter (on the main thoroughfare and but a few steps away from the Mouassine fountain and Mouassine Mosque), and comprises two large gardens and one of the highest towers of the medina. The museum provides you with a wealth of historical information about Marrakech's architecture, water, and gardens. You will also find a boutique, a bookshop and two cafes inside Le Jardin Secret. The cafes offer you up fresh, homemade products that you can eat in lush and peaceful settings.

After hours of walking and bartering your way through the Medina, The Secret Garden is just what you need to reinvigorate yourself before heading back out into the hustle and bustle of one of Morocco's Imperial Cities

This garden is a lovely respite, just for relaxing or having a tea. The exhibits are very well put together, focused on how water is efficiently distributed among the plants and fountains.

A very peaceful place amongst the hustle and bustle of the souks. We took a taxi to the Majorelle Gardens (YSL gardens and museum), however, the driver took us here.
It's 50dir entrance fee (about £4) with discounts for students, younger folks and senior citizens. There is two gardens, both quite small, but certainly tranquil. Cafe on site, a viewing platform and a small cinema. There is also plenty of information on the walls about the history and redevelopment of the gardens.
Go early to avoid the large tour groups.

We were advised to find the secret garden by the owners of the riad we were staying at. It was. Retail you worth finding. It’s a lovely tranquil place to get away from the busy Marrakech souks. The gardens are well maintained and there is a lovely cafe serving drinks and lunches. A great place to find if the bartering of the souks has become too much

The Secret Garden lives up to its name as it is extremely hard to find! We wound our way through the souk, and kept asking for directions, but it was worth the effort. The Garden is beautifully laid out and well maintained. The view from the tower over the rooftops is fascinating. While there we had a refreshing mint tea and took advantage of the free wifi.
