Historic 19th-century riad transformed as Jasper Conran’s first hotel in Medina, L’Hôtel Marrakech

L'Hôtel Marrakech has five suites surrounding a courtyard garden and swimming pool.

Jasper Conran has opened his first hotel in the Medina of Marrakech. L'Hôtel Marrakech, a historic 19th-century riad originally the central part of a Caidal palace, has five suites surrounding a courtyard garden and swimming pool. The riad combines Moroccan craftsmanship with pieces of antique furniture, textiles, lighting and art from Conran's personal collection.

The property’s restoration was executed using local craftsmen and traditional materials. There are white voile curtains on the terraces, as well as whitewashed walls, high zouak ceilings and a warm color palette.

Upon entering the hotel, guests find themselves in a courtyard garden, planted with banana, orange and lemon trees. There are also roses, jasmine and honeysuckle, while a central fountain is surrounded by zelige tilework.
