Since opening in 1946, La Maison Arabe has achieved a legendary status in Marrakech. Ideally situated in the medina, the hotel includes 26 rooms and suites, most with private terraces and fireplaces, 3 restaurants, a piano bar, a world-famous cooking school (open to guests staying at the hotel or elsewhere in town) as well as a new spa including a traditional hammam, where natural products from the region of Marrakech are used. Guests at La Maison Arabe have a choice of swimming pools.

One can relax at either the heated pool in the hotel's garden patio, or at the pool located at our spectacular Country Club, 15 minutes away by complimentary shuttle. Walking through the hotel's flower-filled patios, one can admire the traditional Moroccan craftsmanship (tadelakt walls, chiseled plaster, cedar wood ceilings) that has created a refined, exotic and serene atmosphere for you.


Each of the 12 rooms and 14 suites, most with fireplace and private terrace, is unique in layout and refined decoration. All are air-conditioned and centrally heated, and include a mini-bar, safe, satellite television and Wi-Fi internet access. The bathrooms, designed using Moroccan marble and granite, are at the highest level of international luxury hotel standards.

La Maison Arabe Moroccan Cooking School Program

La Maison Arabe has taken world-renowned cooking workshops to a different level. They have opened a new cooking school, located at their private gardens, just outside the city. The school is set in an organic kitchen garden, so participants can pick vegetables and herbs theyll use to season their delicious Moroccan tagines. Guests at La Maison Arabe's new cooking school now get a fuller and richer Moroccan culinary experience, and can even enjoy Moroccan wine pairings.

The cooking classes are run by the dadas of La Maison Arabe, who have been sharing their culinary secrets with thousands of guests over the years. The school boasts 16 individual work stations, each equipped with a closed-circuit screen, so participants dont miss a single key step or spice. La Maison Arabe launched the first cooking school in the Kingdom of Morocco in 2001. The new space includes a few cooking school firsts in Morocco. At the traditional wood-fired bread oven, you can watch as delicious Moroccan flat bread known as tanourt is baked by placing the dough along the ovens heated clay walls.

In the schools large underground outdoor oven, a mchoui, Moroccos equivalent of a barbeque, can be organized: whole lambs pit-roasted to tender perfection. You are encouraged to try a hands-on experience. However, the new cooking school can also accommodate groups seeking a simpler demonstration cooking class. At the end of each workshop, you will dine on the meal you have prepared. At a typical half-day workshop, youll learn to prepare an appetizer and a main dish, or a main dish and dessert.


This retreat will take place in Marrakech, Morocco. La Maison Arabe is located near the Bab Doukkala mosque.
