About Villa des Orangers
The Villa des Orangers is an intimate haven of peace located near the bustling souks of Marrakech with 27 rooms and suites arranged on two levels around three verdant open-sky patios with water fountains surrounded by galleries of chiseled plaster and a garden.
The Villa des Orangers is a riad, it is a traditional Moroccan townhouse built round a courtyard. Riads are usually constructed on different stories not necessarily floors and therefore have many stairs and no lift. The Villa des Orangers makes no exception to this tradition and most of the rooms and suites have stepsto go up to the bedroom as is the case for duplex suites, or to the bathroom as in one of the deluxe rooms, but also in all rooms and suites with a rooftop terrace or balcony.
The hotel has three swimming pools: a rooftop one with a nice view of the nearby Koutoubia mosque and the Atlas Mountains; a large swimming pool situated in the garden and a small one in the private riad, which has two suites and a solarium.
There are also three lounges with fireplaces, two dining rooms, three massage cabins, a Moroccan traditional hammam, a beauty centre, a fitness club and a decoration boutique. Free wireless internet connection is available in the lounges and courtyards.
Villa des Orangers is a riad, a traditional Moroccan townhouse built in the 1930s by a judge of Marrakech who lived there until 1998. Pascal and Veronique Beherec discovered the house during a short trip in this city. Already owners of two hotels in Paris, it was the beginning of a new project: the creation of a luxury hotel, combining tradition and sophisticated decoration, in the wall of this residence, located in the medina.
Nine months were necessary to restore the house and local craftsmen worked there in the total respect of the traditions. The perfect integration of the hotel within the framework of the Moroccan culture creates a charming place of 27 rooms and suites.
In the foot of the Koutoubia mosque, with its matchless landmark minaret and only 5 minutes walk from the Jemaa el Fna square, the Villa des Orangers offers an exceptional location to explore the medina.
