L'Amandier Ouirgane, Morocco - MML010

Amazing retreat in the heart of the Atlas Mountains, just an hour south of Marrakech, is the perfect escape for couples, families or groups looking for something truly special.

21 Bedrooms, Sleeps 42

Nestled in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, L’Amandier provides tranquillity and calm inspired by a simple and spiritual way of life while maintaining the quality, service and cuisine of a bare-foot luxury destination.

The main hotel has six en suite rooms, all of which enjoy their own terrace and uninterrupted views over the pool terrace and Atlas mountain peaks in all directions. The rooms have bath/shower and separate toilet. The main pool has an infinity edge for more of the views and connects to shallow children’s pool.

A further 22 bedrooms are available across the estate's luxurious villas set within 12 acres of citrus groves, almond trees and bougainvillea. At the far end of the gardens is a guest tennis court.

You will enjoy deep, restful sleep on Egyptian cotton sheets and soft pillows, and wake up refreshed and ready to indulge in the pleasures this place provides. The en suite bedrooms, with elegant zelige tile work and subtle bejemat flooring tiles, have the option of double or twin beds.
The beautifully designed hotel exterior flows through to the interior, with a calming feeling of relaxed chic. The use of light, space, gorgeous fabrics and furnishings, and the warm welcome from the staff, ensure you feel you have arrived somewhere very special.

Overlooking the Ouirgane Valley, the restaurant (L'Espace) offers seasonal menus where the chef will be creating an exquisite fusion of local Moroccan and European cuisine, served in a tapas-style... simple, fresh and diverse flavours, using local organic fresh produce, herbs and oils from the gardens of L'Amandier complimented by the stunning views of the emerald Ouirgane valley, azure coloured lake and the breathtaking Atlas Mountains.

This small cluster of exclusive villas at L’Amandier offer a wonderful alternative to the hotel suites. Ideal for families, groups or couples looking for secluded privacy, they have been designed to create a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living, with all the comforts for an independent or fully serviced stay. Villa guests have full access to the hotel restaurant and facilities, alternatively the concierge service is more than happy to arrange for private catering to meet your requirements. Breakfast overlooking mountains? Fresh mint tea in the afternoon? An evening BBQ on the terrace? Your own private chef? Cocktails in your private plunge pool at sundown? You choose.

There is plenty to do in the area. Guided walks from the hotel can be arranged and also mountain bike hire and horse riding nearby.

Marrakech and the airport are just over an hour’s drive away and a stay here works well in combination with some time in a riad, a few days on the coast or even at the end of a desert trip.
