Opera Plaza

The Opera Plaza has been designed in a traditional Arabic style, with sand-coloured walls, huge domes and Moorish-inspired archways. Inside, everything’s incredibly contemporary.

The hotel is home to a huge pool that sits in the middle of a courtyard. It even has a swim-up bar for when you fancy a drink. In the gardens, there’s also a 200-square-metre spa.

At mealtimes, there’s a great choice of restaurants. Two buffets provide pile-your-plate options and there’s also an a la carte that specialises in Moroccan cuisine. After your evening meal, you can order wine and cigars in the lounge bar, where live music tops the bill.

Overview of Marrakech

A holiday to Morocco is a delight for the senses. When you visit Marrakech, you’ll love the network of intricate lanes that lead somewhere different on each corner. There’s the sounds of the mosques, the smell of the local spices and awe-inspiring architecture that transports you back in time.

Marrakech has a unique blend of old and new. Away from the bustle of the city, you can also visit stunning gardens or explore Marrakech’s modern quarter, which is alive with bars and contemporary art galleries. At the Opera Plaza, everything’s close by.

Things to do in Marrakech

Just like its name suggests, the hotel sits opposite Marrakech’s Royal Opera House, in the city’s French Quarter.

You’re only a short drive away from Jemaa el-Fna Square and the medina’s spice-scented souks. Street entertainers keep the atmosphere lively in this popular tourist spot, with snake charmers and acrobatics particularly common. If you want to explore the medina and the city in a unique way, you can even jump on a horse-drawn carriage.

You can also spend days away from the crowds. You can visit the gardens at Koutoubia Mosque, the ornamental Arsat Moulay Abdeslam Cyber Park or the Majorelle Garden.

Resort Summary

Marrakech is one of the largest cities in Morocco and at its heart is the historical old centre, the 1,000-year-old Medina. This area is also called the Red City because of the colour of the ancient walls that protect it.

On holidays in Marrakech, you can meander through alleyways and backstreets to browse the goods in the souk such as beautifully woven carpets, handmade Berber jewellery, leather items and aromatic spices, among other wonderful enticements. While young designers also showcase their work in Souk Cherifia mall. The maze of markets groups sellers of the same type together so if you’re looking for something in particular it shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Other than shopping, the Medina is full of attractions, including an old Jewish quarter. None of the community remains, but you can visit Lazama Synagogue – the most attractive of the temples still standing with its striking white and blue courtyard. Or visit the largest Hammam baths in Marrakech here, and dine in one of the restaurants that can be found in some of the ancient Inns. Whether you’re looking for a last minute break or an All Inclusive Marrakech holiday, we’ve got you covered.
