Upon arrival at The Golden House, guests would be forgiven for thinking they have stepped into the pages of a glossy interiors magazine, or into the exotic pages of “The Arabian Nights:” opulent, majestic and serene, this oasis of style and luxury sets a new standard for a Moroccan riad get-away.
For 20 people, spread across ten sublime bedrooms and bathrooms, this jewel in Marrakesh’s crown is an ideal choice for a once-in-a-lifetime trip, for a family get-together or even a wedding. Its breathtaking style and luscious gardens offer a haven of comfort, with full staff services, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
The interiors at this magnificent abode feature striking proportions, glossy marbles and sleek polished timbers; an imperial feel of grandeur and exoticism. Touches of original Maghreb style, arched windows, ochre-toned pigments, cloistered verandas and authentic riad style blend with the ultra-chic design. Living spaces feature monochrome palettes, pillared walkways and lavish fabrics, while the bedrooms each have their own characteristics of style and natural glamour.
The gardens at The Golden House are nothing short of exquisite; they offer manicured, pristine lawns and an oasis of date palms, finessed with exotic charisma, with a glistening, generously-sized pool as its centrepiece, with loungers and elegant parasols, setting the scene for indulgent afternoons with a drink by the pool followed by a chef-prepared dinner.
Outdoor living couldn’t be more stylish at The Golden House, while indoor living is both glamorous and decent, a palatial level of comfort, with indulgences such as hot tub and hammam, massage room and beauty salon to ease away the day!
The Golden House is nestled in an upmarket northeastern suburb of Marrakesh, between Annakhil and Palmeraie, yet just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of downtown Marrakesh.
100 years old, Marrakesh is the fourth largest city in Morocco, and is the most visited city, within Africa’s most visited country. It offers a magical and mysterious blend of East and West, winding ancient medina streets sweet with the smell of spices, to open plazas with street entertainers, snake charmers, hot food stalls and hand-crafted wares in the souks.
When the pulsating throb of the winding alleyways of the “Red City” become overbearing, escaping to one of the city’s famous gardens will offer a luscious spot of respite, while its palaces are write-home-about in their loveliness. The Jardin Marjorelle is a serene oasis of exotic plants and tranquillity, away from the crowds.
Jemaa el Fna is at the heart of the city; an open space and centre stage for street entertainers from acrobats to drummers, pipe musicians, dancers, storytellers, comedians and fairground acts.
Among the city’s main architectural attractions is the ruin of the El Badi Palace, the delicate carving of the Saadian Tombs and the Koutoubia Minaret, an ideal example of an Islamic monument. Known also for its palaces, among the finest is the El Bahia Palace, a 19th-century landmark, its name translates fittingly as “brilliance” in Arabic, it is so beautiful it remains the choice of home for visiting dignitaries and royals.
