Description

The Capaldi is a welcoming country retreat a short drive from the city of Marrakech. There are nine different room or suite types to choose from, some with their own pools. The Capaldi is perfect for couples and for families with older kids (children under 12 are not accepted) looking for a relaxing and comfortable stay. There are lovely views of the Atlas Mountains from the bedrooms and from the hotel's spa. The decor is contemporary and simple with a Moroccan twist.

The Capaldi opened in 2013. Its owners Ed and Tara have created a relaxed and attractive hotel with an atmosphere that will make you feel like you are staying in a friend's home rather than in a formal luxury hotel.

In addition to the fabulous spa that is on offer to assist guests in their relaxation, The Capaldi has two pools for you to use regardless of the season, one remains heated for swimming so that even in the colder months you can have a dip. There is also a fitness room for those desiring a slightly more vigorous time than those merely wishing to recline on the roof terrace with a cocktail or indulge in a five course meal from the international menu.
