Marrakech: the ideal destination for a romantic holiday

The Ochre City attracts visitors from the 5 continents and there are a multitude of reasons why. Marrakech glistens in the light of a thousand charms and is particularly great for a romantic getaway. The idyllic surroundings offered by the city and its vicinity, the range of activities and Moroccan cuisine are all qualities that will surely entice couples looking for a slice of the exotic, but also a measure of tranquillity in a luxurious environment.


To enjoy Marrakech as a couple, what better way to enjoy it than to opt for a relaxing stay in a luxury riad such as those offered by the Royal Mansour Marrakech. The unique experience of the riad makes it possible to discover Moroccan architecture in its purest tradition and its greatest finesse. The maxims of this prestigious institution are outstanding service and complete immersion in an exceptional universe.

Therefore, it is easy to discover the city as a couple during the day and to come back to rest by the pool of the palace to cool down. The architecture of a riad is also conducive to well-being and relaxation thanks to the traditional patio offering a blend of freshness and light while offering a look at the best of Moroccan craftsmanship.

Thus, strolling through the streets of Marrakech, which are bright and lively, becomes even more pleasant. When returning from such a promenade, lovers can cool off by the pool or in their riad, endowed with a patio that offers pure freshness and subtle light, while offering a look at the best of Moroccan craftsmanship.


Visiting Marrakech as a couple means also trying out the essential activities that define its identity. Lose yourself in the picturesque alleys of the Medina and discover Moroccan crafts, traditional jewellery and, most notably, leather work. Immerse yourself in the vibrant cultural landscape by visiting the city’s many iconic sites. Marrakech has been a real source of inspiration for prominent figures in the world of art and culture. That was the case with Jacques Majorelle who created the remarkable Jardin Majorelle, or Yves Saint-Laurent to whom a sensational museum is dedicated bearing his name.

To top off any romantic stay in the Red City, nothing quite compares to being pampered at the Royal Mansour Spa. A programme of traditional treatments drawn from Moroccan heritage are reinvented by using wholly natural products of the highest quality. The famous Hammam is then transformed into a transcendent experience that everyone will love. Last but not least, to enhance any escape to Marrakech as a couple, set out and discover Moroccan cuisine. In the various restaurants of the Royal Mansour, senses are enchanted and palates are thrilled when tasting dishes that are rich in flavour and beautifully delicate. The three Michelin-star chef, Yannick Alléno, who is at the helm of the hotel’s various restaurants, has designed menus to delight all taste buds and bring moments of culinary magic to life.
