Le Deux Tours Hotel in Marrakech
Located in the heart of the Palmeraie area, fifteen minutes drive from Marrakech Les Deux Tours is about a mile down a dusty track (a regular shuttle bus operates between the hotel and the town). It is in an almost-biblical setting - a seemingly endless expanse of palm trees dotted with little clusters of sheep and small hamlets.
The restaurant features food prepared by the chef, awarded a 1-star Michelin guide, and 16/20 at Gault & Millaut.
The hotel takes the form of a series of villas set in a lush and fragrant walled garden, with two towers that overlook the original entrance. There are thirty rooms and junior suites, some have fireplaces and several have impressive domed bathrooms; all have bath or shower, air-conditioning, television and telephone. There are also five luxurious private suites, each of which has a small heated pool, garden, sitting room, bedroom, fireplace and dressing room. The private suites have plasma screen televisions as well as CD and DVD players.
No two rooms or suites are the same, although all share the same sublime use of zelige (mosaic) for the floors, tadlakt (a cool, marble-like surface) for the walls, and Tataoui (Oleander wood) for many of the ceilings.
The architect responsible for Les Deux Tours is the renowned Charles Boccara, whose exquisite taste, style and charm flood the place, and his inspiration with its mixture of Moorish, Egyptian and Turkish architecture is quite apparent.
There is a lovely heated swimming pool in a grassy garden setting, and a superb hammam with massage and beauty treatments available. There are several salons and a bar.
Free nights, upgrades, hammam & massage and honeymoon special offers.

Feedback and reviews
We were disappointed with our room which was a bit grubby, very dark and not very well furnished. The bathroom was not good. That said, the grounds, bar and common areas of the hotel were excellent. The food was good without being outstanding. It certainly was not as good as La Sultana and was nowhere near what we anticipated from a restaurant that bills itself as having a Michelin starred chef. Prices were high for the quality of food that they served.... I don't want to sound too negative because we still had a good time but the hotel was not as good as we had expected.

Fabulous- the hotel is absolutely stunning. Loved it! It is so relaxing and I cannot believe that I have only been there for 4 days - feels like much longer. It is a real oasis. The only slightly negative thing I would say was that the food at Les Deux Tours was not great. It would have been much better to have lighter options on the lunch menu. R.T in September 2009
