Demeures d'Orient

Reviewed 5 May 2011

Beautiful Riad in a very central location in the Medina. All rooms have different themes and are beautifully decorated. It is a very quiet and romantic Riad with a big pool in the centre with tables for breakfast and dinner scattered around. The perfect place to rest after a hectic day in the souk. The staff is very helpfull and friendly.

Room Tip: About 10 rooms all different but great

On arrival we met another couple there who told us it was their third stay in the Riad. That was a good signal and I must that it was an accurate one. The riad looks really luxurious without being showy and has a very special atmosphere of tranquility and discreet exoticism. The courtyard’s pool is much bigger than you would expect in a riad, the terrace has glorious views, the cocktail bar next to the pool is cozy and comfortable, and the restaurant looks great and intimate. We had dinner twice there and we really enjoyed their Moroccan dishes. They have also a lovely spa with a varied choice of massages and treatments.
Our room was the ‘Mandalay’ but on our request we had a chance to have a look at some of the others and all of them were great – personally I liked most the ‘Andalousia’ and ‘Fleur de Jade’. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The staff’s attitude was warm, helpful, discreet and efficient. To sum up, we enjoyed our stay in Demeures D’Orient very much and personally I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for an experience of Marrakech in style.

We could not believe the beauty that was tucked away behind the doors of this hotel. We were glad that we arrived by taxi. It is tucked away in a warren of streets so we would never have found it even though it's not too far from the souk. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, while at the same time being completely non intrusive. We were there in Nov and experienced the delight of the cedar-wood fire warming our room when we returned in the evening. The spa treatments were excellent. I am coeliac and the staff went out of their way to ensure that they cooked food suitable for one who is gluten intolerant. We enjoyed sitting on the roof top terrace in the evening sun, looking over the roof tops of Marrakesh, listening to the call to prayer. Having spent a few days in the mountains this hotel provided exactly what we needed. After a day spent shopping in the souk it was a haven to some home to. I can't wait to return!

We discovered that palace through booking.com
Such a surprise!
behind a discreet fanstastic door... a true palace completely new with an authentic vintage old mood. The daughter's owner is a precious designer artist who renovated entirely each room with a different signature. From japanese to venice.... We loved the service, the huge pool (for a ryad!) and the peace of the place. Definitely 5 stars! If really we want to find something .... not perfect. maybe the breakfast. Excellent but simple. Not as sophisticated as the place.

Quite simply one of the most luxurious Moroccan riad hotels I have stayed in. Despite the authentic craftsmanship of the property, the hotel is actually new; having been purpose built by the French family that own and run it. The advantage of a purpose built riad is that it affords rooms and bathrooms to be of modern proportions and what’s more, everything works! The styling of the rooms is exquisite and our suite on the first floor had beautiful attention to details from the carved plaster work to the rose petals on the bed. We found the dining a little over priced and since the hotel has yet to really be discovered, without fellow guests to create an atmosphere, we ate alone - but service was very friendly and genuine. It is not far to walk into old town and a taxi can take you to new town and the elegant and modern restaurant and bars.
The owners arranged for us to have a day out in the valleys and mountains with a Berber guide – well worth the investment.
Having stayed at both high end riads and the more down to earth guest houses in the city, the Demeures d'Orient certainly sets the standard for others to beat in Marrakesh.

My Girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, we loved it and yes it really is exactly like the pictures. Our room was the junior suite Mandalay, it was a lovely room with a huge bath tub, so big infact i still haven't come across anything as big. Please note there was no shower. They treated us like royalty, and we were the only guests for the first 2 nights. On our first night we arrived at about 9pm, we were told that all the restaurants were closed or we should of booked prior to arriving, thus the only place left to eat was in the hotel (surprise,surprise!). My girlfriend and i refused to beleive this and asked the manger to order us a taxi, he was a little apprehensive and insisted we stayed in the hotel for dinner. We took one look at each other, having read so much, seen so much and heard so much about this magical city. We demanded a taxi, within 20 mins we were eating dinner in the famous Jamal El Fna. It was one of the most tastiest meals we have ever eaten, how fabulous it was eating at the stalls. On a whole the hotel is very central, after walking around the city all day to come back to such a delight and wonderful place, was a blessing.
