Marrakech: June 2011 - Part 2

It only took around twenty minutes to go further out of the city to our next hotel. We spent the remaining four nights of the week at the Sirayane Boutique Hotel & Spa.


After being welcomed with mint tea and homemade biscuits, we were shown around the gorgeous hotel before being taken to our room, which was lovely with a massive bathroom.


We had booked one of the 8 rooms with a private terrace, situated in the main building, which I think was a good choice as some of the private garden rooms could be seen from the pool. However, they also looked lovely so I don't think any room would have been a bad choice. The suites with the private pools would be perfect for a honeymoon but were a little more expensive than we wanted to pay.


We spent all of our time there just doing nothing, sunbathing and reading by the pool, relaxing and sleeping. Instead of individual sun loungers the pool was surround by large beds with pillows for two people. We never had an issue finding a bed as the hotel only has 28 rooms in total and many of the guests used the free shuttle service to go into the city. Graham had a Thai massage one day in the spa which he said was really good. They did do a pregnancy massage but you were supposed to be over 12 weeks so I didn't bother trying it.


It was still very hot and the sun was quite strong so even with factor 30 we couldn't stay in the direct sun for long. Each bed had a massive umbrella which the staff would put up or move around for you as necessary which meant we could continue to enjoy the heat.


Breakfast was included and was served until 10am each day, with loads of choice of hot and cold food and the option of omelette's cooked as you wanted if required. We usually ate a late lunch every day, usually consisting of a club sandwich for me, since we had had a lot at breakfast. However this also meant we ended up having a late dinner every night too.

For dinner they had two menu's to choose from a Moroccan and an international. On each there was a set price for either two or three courses. While this was a good idea, the portions were massive, especially on the international menu, and a couple of times I was feeling so bloated that I could have really only eaten one course. All of the food was delicious though. The only thing we felt the hotel was missing was some snacks to buy, however this wouldn't be a problem if you were planning on going in to the city, just that we stayed at the hotel the whole time and really should have brought some with us!


On our last night it was Grahams 30th so he celebrated with a couple of cocktails while I enjoyed a virgin cocktail, not quite as exciting!

If we ever to back to Marrakech I would definitely stay at this hotel again as it was fantastic and I would have loved to have tried the spa.


  1. The location looks lovely and so does the food!

  2. So jealous of the food - LOVE Moroccan food. I wish we could fly as cheaply as y'all do - darn our gigantic country.
