Palais Calipau: Marrakech Riad Review
Western travelers on budget!! If you’re deciding on your next adventure, Marrakech in Morocco is a perfect affordable destination with phenomenal budget accommodation. You won’t believe how far your money will go…
Marrakech is a whole new world! With its dramatic marble carvings and tiled architecture, vibrant and bustling souks, and rich Arabic & Berber culture, you’ll definitely feel as though you’re far from home, but in the best way possible! It’s a magical place to explore, with beauty so diverse and immense that you’ll leave feeling like you experienced a completely different side of the world you never knew existed.
All that being said, exploring Marrakech is a sensory overload and you’ll be more than grateful to come back to an oasis escape from the Medina buzz. This is why everyone should stay at Palais Calipau when on a luxe-budget- not only is it a 5-star hotel that’s surprisingly affordable (only 35 USD/night split between you and a partner!), you get supreme value for the price you pay. The decor is something out of a Moroccan dream, the staff are hospitable and warm, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the hotel itself is so stunning, you’ll be tempted to spend as much time there as possible! Some of my most memorable times in Marrakech were spent by the hotel pool, drinking mint tea under the draped curtains and mosaic lights! Absolutely dreamy!!✨
