With the summer months ahead, it seems to us the ideal moment to give you some inspiration for sunny, exclusive holiday destinations. Situated between olive trees with the peaks of the Atlas Mountains in the background, Berber Lodge is a truly serene paradise. This peaceful oasis near Marrakech is an ideal place to discover the beautiful nature of Morocco in a traditional setting.
Nine private houses create the feeling of a Berber village. Berbers or Imazighen are the inhabitants who already lived in North Africa west of Egypt, namely current Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania and Mali before the arrival of the Arabs in the seventh century. The atmosphere of their traditional culture and villages is imitated on the domain of Berber Lodge. Traditional Berber building techniques with stones and wooden beams of palm tree and eucalyptus are combined with understated country chic decoration, rattan and vintage fabrics from Morocco and abroad. Tadelakt - Berber for 'rubbing in' - or plaster, and marble bathrooms provide a dose of luxury. There are four different types of lodges: classic, superior, deluxe and family. Something for everyone. In a central house in the 'village' you can relax and chat in the lounge by a cosy fireplace, enjoy a drink in the bar or use the library and dining room. Walk through the beautiful garden at the bottom and there you will find a pool and pergola bar among the trees. A beautiful garden and environment, cooling pool, relaxing atmosphere and local organic cuisine, what more do you need. A modest but stylish place. This serene and spacious paradise is the ideal retreat to relax after the fuss of the bustling Marrakech, or even to escape the hustle and bustle of life.
Relax completely at Berber Lodge.
The designer of this paradise is Romain Michel-Meniere, a French-Swiss architect and assistant manager of Berber Lodge. He grew up with his grandparents in the mountains of Switzerland. He is a countryman in heart and soul, but he also lived in Paris for a while, studied in Milan and Geneva and worked in Mexico and New York. After a few setbacks in his personal life he wanted to start over and fell in love with Morocco over time. Sixteen years ago the love had grown big enough and Romain moved. There, he found the peace and quiet he had always been looking for. The architect bought and renovated various riads, traditional Moroccan houses or palaces and set up a number of hotels. He is a specialist in the interweaving of traditional heritage with contemporary design and therefore made a name for himself. Romain wants to bring peace and authenticity to the ever more modern and busy Marrakech and he certainly succeeded with Berber Lodge.
