Our youngest guests are just as important as our grown-up ones here at Four Seasons Resort Marrakech. Tots to teens adore the supersized Family Pool, taking part in our Kids For All Seasons activities and hanging out at our Young Adult Centre.
But there’s also plenty to explore nearby. Filled with mystery and adventure, Marrakech is one of the world’s great family destinations, offering many stimulating opportunities to learn and have fun. Ask our concierge team to help make it a trip of a lifetime for your family.
Sporting families head to Terres d’Amanar, a beautiful estate in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, 30 minutes from Marrakech. Zipline across canyons, scooter down mountainsides, gallop on horseback across the plains – it’s all here, just waiting to be discovered.
A short drive from the Resort, the Palmeraie is a massive palm grove set amidst a scrub desert and the best place to indulge an Arabian Nights fantasy. Tour the area by camel back or quad bike, ideally at sunset when the landscape is at its most enchanting.
LIVE LIKE A BERBER
Hike into a remote, rammed-earth village in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, where Amazigh people still live as they have for centuries. Learn to make mint tea, take a traditional cooking class, and watch as the women grind argan nuts to make precious oil.
STROLL THE MEDINA
Guided tours add comfort and confidence to your explorations deep into the heart of the Red City. Meander through the souks (markets) to the Jemaa el Fna, where snake charmers, fortune tellers, henna artists, musicians and dancers are waiting to entertain you.
A richly decorated, horse-drawn caleche (carriage) will pick up your family at the door and take you on an old-fashioned tour of the city from the historic Menara Gardens right next door to Jemaa el Fna. We can also arrange tours in motorcycle sidecars!
BIKE THE MOUNTAINS
We’ve teamed up with mountain biking specialists AXS to create a fully customizable family bike adventure. Routes include the back streets of the Medina, sandy lanes through the Palmeraie and off-piste tracks through the Atlas Mountains.
DINNER IN THE DESERT
Just a 45-minute drive away, the Agafay Desert offers the chance to surprise everyone with dinner in the dunes under a sky twinkling with millions of stars. It’s a magical experience that your family will remember forever.
HOT-AIR BALLOON RIDE
Rise and shine for the thrill of your life with a hot-air balloon flight over the Atlas Mountains and the Agafay Desert. Floating high above it all, you’ll get a unique perspective on the different landscapes, regions and towns, and – if you get up early enough – even watch the sunrise!
