Palais des Remparts

Your basket is empty


A Welcome cocktail and VIP touches in your room.

STEPS FROM THE WILD Atlantic Ocean, Le Palais des Remparts is a luxury boutique riad with sweeping views out to sea and over the walled city of Essaouira.

Next to the ancient Portuguese citadel, this beautifully restored riad is spread over four floors that rise up around a palm-fringed atrium courtyard. Inside, rooms and five suites are a sophisticated blend of traditional Moroccan and contemporary design. All bedrooms feature Moroccan inspired arched alcoves, wooden window frames, Eastern style lamps and vibrant fabrics.

Standard double rooms at Palais des Remparts have a bath or shower while the bigger deluxe rooms have a more spacious bathroom and small sitting area. Upstairs you’ll find the five senior suites – choose one with a fireplace if you come in winter or one of the two with exceptional ocean views from their terrace if you’re splashing out. Listen to the waves crashing down below as you snuggle down in bed.

Sunsets and sea-spray

Traditional building materials and techniques were used to restore this pretty riad to its former glory and create a lavish guesthouse. Bedrooms have brilliant views of the medina or ocean, while welcoming extra touches include fresh flowers, luxury slippers and robes.  

Head out to the hotel’s roof terrace, with sea and old-town views, for some tapas paired with Moroccan wine, or try the patio restaurant for authentic local dishes such as spicy fish soup or crispy pigeon pastilla (pie). Delicious breakfasts can be eaten on the patio or roof terrace – as long as you don’t mind the sea-spray on a windy day.

Guests at Palais des Remparts can also enjoy a pampering afternoon in the spa, with its jacuzzi and traditional hammam. Try a chocolate bath if you’re feeling adventurous, rent bikes from the hotel or try windsurfing at Essaouira’s famously sweeping beach for a real adrenaline rush.
