The Guardian: Special Places to Stay in Morocco

Posted on January 12, 2011 by Arabella Robbins

From city riads to mountain retreats, Morocco has plenty of stylish hideaways. Alastair Sawday, publisher of the Special Places to Stay guides, picks 20 favourites:

Max’s hilltop retreat is a cluster of reconstructed village houses between Marrakesh and the mountains. You are led onwards and upwards through endless courtyards, corridors, arches and alcoves where light and dark play games with your eyes and level-changes confuse your geography. The peace of the place can now take over. Materials and forms are organic: irregular walls of stone and plaster, tadelakt bathrooms, quietly furnished bedrooms for rest and refreshment. The monastic serenity does not preclude gentle yet high-class hotel service.

Exceeded all my expectations

Posted on September 17, 2010 by James Robbins

Tigmi exceeded all my expectations. Luxurious yet comfortable and homely. The staff are courteous and make you at ease during your stay. The architecture, use of space and interior design have been a welcome haven to relax in. The food/menu considered delicious. Wish we could have stayed longer but will return and recommend Tigmi to our friends and family.

Delightful Architectural Nooks and Crannies

Posted on October 30, 2008 by James Robbins

We thoroughly enjoyed being a reasonable way out of Marrakech. There was a feeling of being among the real people of Morocco and a walk to the nearby Kasbah was a fascinating experience. The locals seem friendly and the children ever-optimistic with their ‘Bonjour – dinars?’ One can only feel affection for Tigmi itself. It is full of delightful architectural nooks and crannies. Its florid courtyards offer peaceful shady retreats and the views from its terraces keep you gazing out across the hills and villages, listening for distant sounds like the shout of a shepherd or a grumbling donkey. The staff at Tigmi, smilingly unhurried but thoroughly obliging add to the general sense of douceur which pervades the place. We also found the food simple but excellent.
