Es Saadi Palace & VillasMarrakech, Morocco
Nestled on 20 lush acres in the heart of Marrakesh, the Es Saadi Palace & Villas—a Preferred Hotels & Resorts property, part of the Preferred Hotel Group—couples refined luxury with traditional Moroccan hospitality in a setting as memorable for its lavish accommodations as the verdant park grounds on which it lies. Pathways pleasantly shaded by bougainvillea, palm, eucalyptus, orange and lemon trees lead to the hotel, where 150 rooms, including 15 suites infuse modern amenities with natural charm. Or stay in the opulent Palace, where 92 spacious suites plus 8 deluxe Ksars have been sumptuously appointed by master local craftsmen and offer views of the stunning snow-capped Atlas Mountains. For a vacation worthy of Arabian royalty, reserve one of 10 magnificent Villas, each singularly designed and decorated in themed Oriental architecture, and each accoutered with an exotic garden, heated swimming pool, personal butler and buggy service throughout the property.
All of Es Saadi's accommodations offer access to the entire resort, including six restaurants, two pools and two spas. After the decadent breakfast buffet at Jardin d'Hiver, you won't even have to change out of your swimsuit to dine on delicious light lunch fare at Autour de la Piscine. Refuel after an invigorating visit to the Palace Spa with salutary slow food from Bio du Bled. For dinner, choose from classic French cuisine at Restaurant Gastronomique, hearty Mediterranean at Lagon & Jardin or traditional Moroccan at La Cours des Lions. Or dine on regional dishes by candlelight at the Moroccan Dinner Show while acrobats, musicians, snake charmers and belly dancers perform for your delight. The centerpiece of the resort, of course, is the world-famous Casino de Marrakech, fully renovated in 2011 with classy gaming tables and state-of-the-art slot machines. The casino is the center of the city's hot nightlife and home to the Theatro Night Club, which hosts the best DJs in the world. Es Saadi means "the happy one," which you will be after an unforgettable stay here.
