Kelly Ella Maz Marrakech Camel Ride

Quick Guide to Marrakech

Marrakech is easily the most exotic destination I’ve been too, and this guide to Marrakech has everything you need to know. It was overwhelming, a bit scary and exciting all at the same time. One thing’s for sure: I’m dying to go back. It’s a hot spot for celebrities and fashion designers giving it a very unique blend of exotic old-world authenticity and modern, fashionable flair. Spend your nights eating dinner by candle light in the desert, and your days at day clubs run by a company from Miami. It’s the best of both worlds.

WHERE TO STAY

  • For an authentic experience stay at Riad Viva. You’ll feel like you’re living in another world in their gorgeous rooms with traditional decor. Full review can be found here
  • For a more elaborate stay, try the famous Hotel La Mamounia. This hotel is over-the-top luxury.

WHAT TO SEE & DO

  • The number one sight to see in Marrakech is the Souks. For a truly unique shopping experience haggle the prices on gold jewellery and great home decor.
  • Jemaa el Fna is the main square in the Old Medina of Marrakech. By day you’ll see snake charmers, orange juice stands and even a very questionable dentist. At night food stalls fill the square with some very delicious (and cheap) Moroccan eats!
  • Jardin Majorelle is a garden that used to be owned by Yves Saint Laurent. It’s a beautiful place to visit and there’s plenty of shade – which makes it the perfect afternoon activity.

WHERE TO EAT

  • The absolute best food you’ll have in Marrakech is the nighttime food stalls in Jemaa el Fna. Don’t miss this great experience. 
  • Crystal at Pacha Hotel complex is a great option for fine dinning in Marrakech.
  • For a really fun night visit La Pause for a dining experience in the desert with no electricity and only candles for lighting.

WHERE TO DRINK

  • The super club of Ibiza has a location here worth visiting. Of course I’m talking about Pacha Nightclub. Start your night at Rose Bar before moving to the main club after midnight.
  • For daytime parties head to Nikki Beach.
