Heure Bleue Palais

Heure Bleue Palais

A true palace by both name and nature, the Heure Bleue Palais Hotel will have you living like royalty during your luxury trip to Morocco.

Housed in an original 18th century private home that’s since been both restored and then equipped to cater for the modern-day luxury traveller, Heure Bleue Palais is as authentic and luxurious as it gets, placing it rightfully among Essaouira’s finest five-star hotels. Nowhere is this more apparent than from the property’s priceless rooftop pool, sun deck and bar, the perfect place to take in your medina views in absolute style and comfort, particularly memorable at sunset as the city descends into an evocative crimson hue.

Room Types

All rooms

33 guestrooms and suites are all well-equipped and traditionally decorated in dark wood furnishings, mosaic tiles and antique leather chairs. Occasional mod-cons such as an espresso machine and flat-screen TV add a touch of comfort, as do pleasant seating areas and large bathrooms with their walk-in showers and bathtub, Les Sens Marrakech toiletries and robes. Some benefit from a shallow in-room balcony and the suites enjoy larger floorplans, with specially designated family rooms also available.

  • Description, Services & Facilities

    Of the many charming features to be found in and around this boutique Essaouira hotel, the Heure Bleue Palais’ vine-clad central courtyard complete with an ornate stone fountain and foliage, is certainly one of them. So too the traditional woodwork and all-round authentic feel to the property found from a cosy lobby lounge right up to that unbeatable roof terrace pool, and the Essaouira medina views it provides. Guestrooms follow suit, all varying slightly in size and layout though each balancing the same design style of ‘old meets new’, so antique leather armchairs sit beside LCD TVs, and traditionally mosaiced floor tiles lead into a marble bathroom of walk-in showers and modern fittings, for example. Elsewhere, a stint in the onsite spa or strikingly beautiful hammam simply cannot be missed, before heading to Salon Oriental Restaurant for delicate fine dining the Moroccan way. With an inviting cocktail lounge, inventive Oriental tapas eatery and of course the rooftop bar too, keeping well fed and watered at the marvellous Heure Bleue Palais is all part of the appeal, even before heading out to explore the medina, which lies just outside.
