Less a hotel and more of a luxurious home from home, Maison MK is cool, romantic and sophisticated and benefits from a great location just a short distance from the main square of Marrakech. This small luxury Riad is an oasis of calm and, after a day exploring the bustling souks, guests can enjoy the peaceful roof terrace with distant sounds of the Medina whilst taking in unrivalled panoramic views of the Atlas mountains. It was made famous when Jamie Oliver filmed 'Jamie Does Morocco' from this majestic viewpoint. If you are in the mood for some pampering, the luxury Hammam on the ground floor of the Riad is an unforgettable experience laced with luxury treats!
The soft warming colors and curved walls throughout the Riad and in the bedrooms leave you feeling comfortable and at home. The bathrooms have lighting that cleverly mimics candlelight, creating a romantic and relaxed setting. This Riad was a project of passion by the British owners Paul and Aoibheann who have ensured the highest levels of service as their finishing touches. Every staff member becomes a friend at Maison MK and this attention to detail makes it a very special place. If you are nervous about tackling the identical lanes of the souks, Maison MK provides every guest with a mobile phone which you can take with you and call for help if you need. Every room includes an Ipod dock loaded with Paul's esteemed music taste.
Gastro MK is the Riad's restaurant and one of the best places to eat in Marrakech, offering an exquisite and varied 5 course tasting menu, perfect for guests interested in modern cuisine with a Moroccan twist. The chef expertly combines European and Moroccan food influences, in an intimate candlelit setting, catering for approximately 24 guests only. The evening begins with cocktails and canapés on the chic roof terrace, and for an extra special evening full of romance you are able to request a private dining room.
