Cheap flights to Marrakech - Marrakech Weather and Hotels

Best time to visit in Marrakech

The Marrakech is a magical place for a cheap weather holidays of the season. Winter is bright and crisp, while autumn brings delicious fresh produce inside of the markets. Spring sees the Atlas Mountains covered in flowers, while the city’s red-hot summers may be offset by a day-trip to the sandy coast. For North African music lovers, one particularly good time to visit in the Marrakech in June or first week of July, during the Festival of Popular Arts or the third week of June, when the annual Gnaoua Festival is held in Essaouira. Compare cheap flights to Marrakech on weather holidays.

La Maison Arabe Marrakech Hotel

Opened in the 1940, La Maison Arabe was a popular dining place for the rich and famous. It closed in the 1980 but reopened in 1998 as a hotel under the new ownership of Italian blueblood and African antiques collector Frederic Ruspoli. His collection is now the centrepiece of luxuriously restored suites and rooms, most with private terraces, set around central courtyards.

La Mamounia Hotel

Set within lush gardens and with fine views of the Atlas Mountains, this art deco luxury hotel has been the place to stay in Marrakech for the rich and famous since it was opened in the 1920. Winston Churchill described it as the loveliest spot in the world and was a frequent visitor,the Churchill Bar is named in his honour. In its heyday, it was not so much a hotel as a way in life, with a casino to rival Monte Carlo and silver screen movie stars sipping highballs at high tea. The major sumptuous overhaul is now complete and La Mamounia is once again the grande dame of the Marrakech.
