The Moroccan Culinary Art Museum

Built in the 18th century, this remarkable mud-brick ancient mansion of 5000 square meters with architecture reminiscent of an old sultan’s palace has two stunning courtyards. Both are covered in intricate tiles and deep colors, a genuine echo of the Moorish architectural design. The courtyard is embellished with ancient olive and palm trees and a burbling Moorish marble fountain rooted in the middle, facing the two seemingly Moroccan living rooms with high ceilings.

This ancient house has been completely refurbished and revamped into a beautiful palace, a marvel of Moroccan craftsmanship, and a genuine work of art. Guests will embark on a journey of culinary discovery through its various exhibition rooms, from spices taking their origins from all the Moroccan regions to Art de la Table and the different cuisine techniques presented to the visitors.

A visit to the Museum can be enhanced with a “degustation” or a packed lunch. Cooking classes can also take place (morning and afternoon) for 34 participants or 68 if they work in duos, followed by the meal they have prepared. There is a gift and souvenir boutique with all kinds of local products and cooking paraphernalia. The whole site can also be rented for special events.

Standing buffet capacity: 250 guests. Banquet capacity: 150 guests. Lift between the various floors. Commodities are available on each floor.

Yves Saint Laurent Museum

Yves Saint Laurent Museum presents the most beautiful creations of the famed French Couturier, together with temporary exhibitions of painters or sculptors. He loved Marrakech, lived a long time in the villa Bou Saf Saf next door, and was very much inspired by the city’s light and colours in his collections.

The Hammam Experience

To destress and detox, there is no better way than to visit a traditional Moroccan steam bath and have a deeply relaxing treatment.

Hammam (steam bath), body scrub with a special glove, massages with aromatic essential oils, and other treatments are all designed to induce lasting well-being, including relaxing milk baths with rose petals, facials, and toning mineral wraps.

20 km before Ouarzazate, turn left and stop for the visit of the Ait Ben Haddous Kasbah, a Unesco preserved site.

Thanks to the river’s proximity, cereals, henna, vegetables, fruit and date palms are cultivated on the valley floor or stepped terraces. Then the scenery becomes drier, and the sand gets more and more appearing… and here is Zagora, only 80 days (by camel) from Timbuktu!
