Chef Christophe Leroy arrived in Marrakech over a decade ago to open an outpost of his famous St Tropez restaurant, La Table du marché. (His empire of restaurants now extends from France to Morocco to the Caribbean.) Now he’s getting into the Marrakech hotel game with a new hideaway called the Jardin d'Ines.
Nestled in lush gardens in the Palmeraie, the hotel had a major overhaul before opening in April with 26 super-sized suites. The infinity pool is tiled in blue mosaics, and 50 chaise lounges are scattered among the olive groves. There’s also a library, a bar, and a large veranda in the main building.
The restaurant has already secured a reputation for one of the best Sunday brunches in town. Here you can taste some of Leroy’s classic dishes like the tomato basil tart and the Croque Monsieur with truffles. There’s frequently live music entertainment at the restaurant; check the Facebook page for upcoming events.
