La Pause

Location: Desert Morocco | Morocco

A green oasis set beside a riverbed in the Agafay desert just outside Marrakech, the authentic Moroccan charms of La Pause will seduce you, from relaxing in a hammock among the olive groves to dining under the stars.
Perfect forCouples and honeymooners with a sense of adventure.
In the knowIt’s all about rustic luxury here. In true Berber tradition, there’s no electricity, and 21st century technology is sparse- but the true sense of relaxation and escape, not to mention the romantic candlelight, more than makes up for it.

Hotel Overview


In the Agafay desert, 45 minutes from Marrakech.

Rooms at La Pause

La Pause is built in traditional Berber pisé style, with thick walls that deflect the heat of the sun. In the characterful rooms, you’ll find comfortable beds, wood burners, distinctive Berber rugs and cushions, wooden-beamed ceilings and hand-carved bathrooms.

Food and facilities

For lunch, enjoy salads plucked from the gardens and dressed with olive oil pressed from La Pause’s own olive groves. In the evening, relax in a tent under the stars, furnished with colourful cushions and lit by lanterns, and tuck into an exquisite feast of Moroccan food and wine, listening to the local Gnawas musicians.

Activities at La Pause

This vast natural playground is at your disposal- there’s cross-country golf, mountain biking, horse-riding and camel treks, to name just a few. Or simply take a dip in the pool and chill out in a hammock with a good book, and enjoy the views across the surrounding desert and the Atlas Mountains. Meanwhile, the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and its temples and souks is only 45 minutes away.
