Palais Sohan Marrakesh – where African design meets modernist style

Palais Sohan Marrakesh – where African design meets modernist style

We love the African continent with its diverse cultures and traditions and design styles. So I am super excited to tell you a bit more about a villa I stayed in during my recent trip to Marrakesh, one of my favourite cities in the world!

Located in North Africa, Marrakesh is very easy to get to with several flights a day from the UK and various other European and international destinations.

Marrakesh evokes a sense of ‘Africa meets Southern Europe’ in me, as it is easily accessible, and safe and offers cultural sights, great shopping, as well as culinary experiences that are out of this world. So a little bit for everyone.

We stayed in the beautiful Palais Sohan in a quiet village close to the Atlas mountains, which is approximately a 20-minute car journey from the medina, the centre of Marrakesh. And before I go any further, I have to say that the pictures (even beautiful), don’t do it any justice!

The contemporary villa with traditional Moroccan, Sub-Saharan African and modern influences will take you on a journey through contemporary African design at its best made by local artists and Berber craftsmen.

Built-in collaboration with KO architects from Marrakech, Palais Sohan offers a unique place with multiple inspirations. With its 7 magnificent suites with personalised decorations and en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers, toilet and dressing room, and private terrace with garden views, the villa can easily accommodate up to 14 people and more if required.

Palais Sohan comes with complimentary WiFi, air conditioning, house-chef and housekeeper and access to a garden with a year-round large outdoor pool. This villa also features a hammam, and a bar, as well as a shared lounge with a large-screen TV and PlayStation.

My favourite area is the outdoor patio with pool views, great for breakfast or chilling in the afternoon.

Escape in the middle of the fragrance garden, discover the multitude of colours offered by Moroccan flora or get to know the resident peacock and chicken family or recharge your batteries on each of the private terraces overlooking the Atlas mountains.

Everything at the Palais Sohan is made to make you experience a luxury, authentic and unforgettable Moroccan experience.

One thing is for sure, I will be back! In the meantime, check out my VIDEO about the villa on Instagram and make sure to FOLLOW US for more content on the best of African design!
