Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this Marrakech boutique hotel and unpacked their slippers and silk kaftans, a full account of their Moroccan luxury city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Palais Namaskar in the Palmeraie…
This luxury Moroccan resort is like an upscale village in itself. Birdsong and fresh jasmine, infuse an introduction to this opulent Oetker-managed hip hotel and begin the uplifting assault on your senses. Concealed within the fragrant foliage-framed grounds of this five-star enclave and flanked by ornamental lakes and delicate Murghal archways is a seductive spa, a glamorous bar and a sophisticated restaurant. Palais Namaskar hotel and spa in Marrakech is unavoidably soothing, perhaps thanks to the Parisian owner Philippe Soulier having ensured the Far East philosophy of feng shui guided every element. When planning its white-marble magnificence and elegant waterways of these private Palmeraie palaces, the Frenchman played both architect and astrologer working in cahoots with renowned interior designer Imaad Rahmouni, the French-Algerian protégé of Philippe Starck. Little wonder then that the suites and communal areas have been lavished with kilometres of bespoke soft furnishings and furnished with statement pieces such as Hermès-finished B&B Italia chairs and custom-created Murano chandeliers. Float from orange-blossom-infused spa through Balinese-influenced gardens to your own outdoor marble bathtub, then scrub up to see and be seen in a posh pocket of the Palais that could be in Paris. If we brought you to this Moroccan hideaway blindfolded you’d be forgiven for feeling befuddled as to where in the world you are… One thing would be sure: you’re in paradise.
