A Garden Paradise at Essaouira?s Le Jardin des Douars, Morocco






Beneath the white hot sun in the drought ridden outskirts of Essaouira you?ll find Le Jardin des Douars, a boutique hotel nestled within a luscious, painstakingly maintained garden oasis

Words Patrick Hamilton Courtney

Essaouira, Morocco?s windy city on the coast, is lauded for it?s chilled out, cosmopolitan vibe. Travellers come to find treasures in the medina?s colourful souk, eat freshly caught seafood down at the port, and soak up the cultural currency that has given Essaouira the hippest, friendliest, and most accessible energy of any of Morocco?s major travel destinations.
There are a number of luxurious hotels in Essaouira, from glossy, westernised resorts such as the Sofitel to quaint family-run riad guest houses within the city walls. None of them, however, have quite the same magic as Le Jardin des Douars. A few miles from the city centre, the quiet retreat is built around luxuriant, exotic gardens that defy the barren ground on which they are planted.
Perfect for long weekends or even an extended stay, Le Jardin promises an elegant, peaceful, naturalistic escape well removed from the bustle of city life in London.

STAY
Le Jardin is a warren of beautifully planted paths and walkways that connect its various buildings. The architecture, though fairly newly built, echoes the red earthen Kasbahs of the Atlas Mountains, giving the property an authentically Moroccan feel. The hotel?s indoor facilities, including two restaurants, a spa, accommodation, and various lounges and hallways, are spread across these buildings. Other facilities include a terrace restaurant, outdoor bar area, and two pools.
Given the fairly small size of the hotel the presence of two pools is particularly welcome. One of them is a bar-serviced, adult only affair, with well-spaced sunbeds and a gently heated pool long enough to swim lengths undisturbed by younger guests. Between four and five o? clock waiters bring round trays of sweetened mint tea and cake; a lovely touch. The second pool is far removed from the first and caters to families and younger guests, where children can splash and frolic to their heart?s content.
The hotel?s spa offers a range of very reasonably priced treatments. For example, a moisturising facial for around Ł25, a one and a half hour hot stone massage for Ł60, or one of the exhilarating hammam treatments for Ł20. The spa?s standout feature is its traditional Moroccan hammam; decorated by candles and lanterns it is one of the most attractive I?ve been in.

SLEEP
Le Jardin has a wide range of competitively priced room categories. They range from simple double bedrooms up to the absolute luxury of the Royal Suite. We slept in a Luxe Room, complete with a large terrace overlooking the pool ? offering the opportunity for private sunbathing ? and a high domed ceiling with pretty cut out stars.
For those travelling with multiple friends or desiring total and ...
