1. Palais Namaskar
Pulling up to the Namaskar was almost like arriving into the gates of heaven. Lush greenery and lilies surrounded a long entrance that gave off a powerful floral smell. The next right you take will lead you to a view that is the pure definition of tranquility. This palace in the desert and majestic mountains is a destination to regain relaxation in the most stylish of surroundings. In 2012, Prix Villegiature recognized Palais Namaskar an award for being"the Best Hotel in Africa." Not to mention, each suite offers your own private pool with Gatsby esq white curtains that flow with each breeze.
The Amanjena is a peaceful oasis outside the hustling city of Marrakech. It is the most ideal Moroccan backdrop for any ceremony,reception, or brunch. The landscaping is done nearly to perfection, with olive trees and dates growing in each direction you turn. The red walls with the pale turquoise pools enhance the decor the country is so well known for. There is a very special and peaceful vibe at the Amanjena, even when at capacity. The grounds always feel quiet. You can hear faint splashing in the pool while a soft Moroccan song plays throughout the resort. The rooms are intricately detailed with a "blue fish scale" effect along the red walls, and fresh rose petals come in each bath.
3. Selman Marrakech
Fancy getting hitched in front of the longest pool in Morocco? Maybe that wasn't an initial thought along with the dress, the cake, the flowers, the DJ, the photographer, and so on... but you may fall in love with the grounds of Selman once you catch a glimpse of it. The Selman has a very mysterious vibe, massive chandeliers, and horses everywhere. You even have the option to host reception drinks near the stables that come with surround sound, air conditioning, and misters. Imagine how well they would take care of you, if this is how they treat their horses! They also offer the Spa at Selman to hold your special ceremony in front of their peaceful pool and dome shaped architecture.
