This is one of my absolute favourites in Marrakech. A former palace, transformed into a luxury hotel with the Relais & Chateaux seal of approval, Villa des Orangers is one of Marrakech’s most exclusive boutique hotels, known for providing a personal and generous service to guests, both within the hotel and on tailor-made excursions into the city. Located at the foot of the Koutoubia (the largest, most iconic mosque in the city), between the Royal Palace and Jemaa el Fna (the main market square in Marrakech’s Medina, or Old Town), Villa des Orangers is ideally located for exploring the best of Marrakech, whilst still enjoying the tranquillity of being a stone’s throw from the action, close to a number of breathtaking public gardens.Read more

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
