La Villa des Orangers

Hotel Villa des Orangers is a luxurious riad property, built in a former palace complex just outside of the medina walls of Marrakech. Rooms are divided between two elegant mansions and the pool is set beneath the orange trees and within the landscaped courtyard. The food here is heavily influenced by French cuisine, with dishes like lamb noisette and grapefruit macarons on the menu.


Four Seasons Resort Marrakech

Four Seasons Resort Marrakech is ideally situated on the edge of the historic Medina. The hotel is surrounded by moorish gardens, impressive palm trees, swimming pools and fountains. Guests can unwind in Le Spa at Four Seasons, featuring authentic Turkish baths, indoor-outdoor treatments and a variety of healing massages. There is a complimentary car service in the evening to bring guests to restaurants in the Medina and in the surrounding area.


Le Farnatchi

Le Farnatchi is one of Marrakech’s first boutique riads. This luxurious property is spread throughout five houses that surround two Andalusian-style courtyards. There are just ten suites, promising privacy within the heart of Marrakech. Within the property, there is a spacious pool, peaceful roof terrace and the elegant spa has two luxurious marble hammams and several treatments rooms.

What people are saying

OROKO created the honeymoon of our dreams in South Africa. The consultation process was very laid-back and conversational. The whole process overall was really quite quick and smooth. There was no trawling through the internet for hours late at night, weighing up costs and reviews of hotels and transfer companies etc – it was all done for us based on the OROKO travel experts’ experiences – which we found to be absolutely spot on. Choosing a ‘luxury travel’ company was a little daunting: We wanted a special honeymoon without spending silly money – and OROKO worked very well with this brief. Believe me when I say our accommodation could not have been more perfect for us. It really was the holiday of our dreams.
