9 Stops That Make for a Perfect Trip to Marrakech

Key to the City 12/07/2018

 

The jeweler Victoria Young gets plenty of ideas for her line from her homebase in Brooklyn, but she’s also a big fan of a major trip to both rest her brain and get different synapses firing. Her most recent voyage? To Morocco, where she and her partner toured souks, stayed in a historic riad, and drank all the mint tea. Now you can do the same.

 

Stay

 

LE RIAD AYLA

 

“This was our Airbnb in Marrakech. Located in the heart of the old historic medina, we navigated a maze of high stone walls to reach it.”


KASBAH BAB OURIKA

 

“This majestic boutique resort tucked into the Ourika Valley in the Atlas Mountains (45 minutes outside of Marrakech) is surrounded by stunning red clay cliffs, olive- and citrus-tree-lined paths, beautiful archways, and Moroccan woodwork—it’s completely transportive.”

Eat

 

NOMAD

 

“Overlooking the Souk Semmarine, we sought relief from the market below and enjoyed the freshest vegetable dishes and moroccan mint tea on their rooftop terrace.”

 

EL FENN 

“One of our favorite spots in Marrakech! This beautiful hotel has an equally stunning lantern-lined rooftop bar and restaurant. Surrounded by the sounds of prayer and the busy streets below, the ambient lights of the city envelop the intimate open-air terrace. The photos I took don’t do this place justice.”

 

PARADIS DU SAFRAN

 

“Stock up at this fresh spice market, where you can buy unusual ingredients in bulk.”

Do Things


POOLSIDE AT PALAIS NAMASKAR

 

“Even if you can’t stay at this fancy resort, pay to go hang out by the pool to recharge and people-watch.”

 

MUSÉE YSL MARRAKECH

 

“Yves Saint Laurent’s famous gardens, Jardin Majorelle, are beautiful—but also stop by this museum for a more in-depth look at his work.”


ANITAN

“A great stop for those famous Moroccan rugs, which they’ll ship home for you.”


THE OURIKA VALLEY

 

“We spent a few days hiking and exploring this valley near Marrakech—it’s known for its incredible scenery.”
