Beldi Country Club

As much as we love the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, we wanted to have a day somewhere we could purely relax and the Beldi Country Club did just that.

The Beldi Country Club is an eco-minded retreat, only 6km from the Centre of the Pink City – although it feels like you are a million miles away from the mayhem of Medina. Offering a small taste of rural Morocco, this 15-hectare hotel and club have charming surroundings as it is based on a stunning rose farm with Atlas mountain views.

Beldi is an Arabic word for ‘traditional’ and it is often used to describe authentic craftsmanship, a sentiment French owner Jean-Dominique Leymarie has worked hard to achieve. Everything is handcrafted and homemade: crockery, linens, jams, bread, olive oil and the furniture and objects around are manufactured by craftsmen in the Beldi workshops.

You can wander around the vast olive orchards, and discover a “douar”, a typical Moroccan village, the gardens are full of palms, cacti, orange, citrus trees and there is a garden maze by the pool, bordered by a hedge of pink and orange bougainvillaea. You are going to be captivated by the colours, singing birds and the scents of blooming roses. Best of all, the atmosphere is so relaxed, it feels like you are walking in your own lush backyard. The space dedicated to gardens is remarkable and water elements are everywhere, irrigation channels, ponds populated with lollies and frogs and of course, all the swimming pools.

We arrived early and had a chance to choose our poolside loungers, either under a shade of an olive tree or by the rose garden. We chose to stay in the sun, near the roses.

The Restaurant El Badia is surrounded by olive trees and all the tables have been beautifully set with Beldi ceramics, glassware made locally from recycled glass and fresh roses from their own garden. The restaurant offers seasonal Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine and many items on the menu are harvested from their own vegetable patch.

Beldi Country Club has its own beautiful souks – carpets, cushions, ceramics and glassware – the profits from all their delicate embroidered linens are used to help schools in the Atlas Mountains.

Beldi also has an artisan workshop offering pottery and cooking classes, two tennis courts and a delightful spa.

We had such a calm and relaxing day at The Beldi Country Club, and I wish we had more time in Marrakech so I could return sooner…

    That looks so beautiful and serene! Part of me wonders if I could relax in a place like that or if I’d wear myself out trying to see everything! Lol.

    • 26th February 2018 / 11:11 am

      I know, there’s so much to see there, but it is still fairly small area so it’s easy to do both xx
