The Experience

Marrakech is a magical city full of colors, textures, and history. It's no wonder that this ancient trading hub is home to some of the most interesting architecture, artists, and designers in the world. On this 7 day, 6 night experience, we'll visit breathtaking palaces, high fashion boutiques, and galleries, featuring moving contemporary African works.
We'll also explore the land and the culture that endlessly inspire this artistic heritage. A locally-owned luxury hotel will be our home for the week, tucked in an oasis of organic gardens in the heart of the Palmeraie. Local experts will guide our journey as we walk, bike, cook, and shop our way through this intoxicating city.

Experts & Guides

In addition to visiting the storied souks, innovative boutiques, and countless artisans and designers, we'll have the chance to hear directly from experts in the creative scene:
Renowned interior designer and hotelier, Meryanne Loum-Martin, blazed the trail for transforming riads in Marrakesh into boutique hotels back in 1989. She will guide us on an exploration of not only her 9 acre oasis, but also some of the most picturesque and definitive landmarks in Marrakech.
Janine Gaëlle is a multi-local art world facilitator and director of exhibitions at the Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden. We'll experience this unique space with Janine, learn about the vibrant art scene, and discuss the importance of supporting contemporary African works.
