Set in the Ourigane Valley, about an hour south of Marrakech, the arid landscape is Berber territory; inside the hotel, vintage film posters in every bedroom give Domaine Malika a cinematic quality.
With just 7 bedrooms, the hotel’s intimate setting enchants couples of all ages. By day, embark on walks in the mountains; by night, star-gaze on the rooftop terrace or cozy up by the ornate fireplace in the living room, glass of wine in hand.
Smooth jazz plays during candlelit dinners. The only other soundtrack during your stay will be the faint sing-song chants coming from the local mosque, and the tweets of the birds up above.
There’s a hammam on site to prepare you for (or cure you from) the hustle and bustle of Marrakech: the city is just an hour away, but a whole world apart.
These picturesque peaks make up four distinct ranges, and are still fairly undiscovered by tourists. The most popular ascent is around Jebel Toubkal, the focal point of the eponymous National Park. The Ait Bou Guemez Valley is also a particularly beautiful spot.
