About Marrakech

The town of Marrakech is divided into two distinct parts: the Medina, or the historical city, and the new city with two principal districts that are called: Gueliz and Hivernage. Gueliz is thus the European modern district of the town of Marrakech. Its name comes from the French word “église” some say, because the first monument that was built there was the Catholic Church Saints Martyrs. But some tend to affirm that the name is rather Berber and comes from the hill of Gueliz.

Four Seasons Resort are able to arrange airport transfers and offer car services to all resort guests into and around the city centre. Both can be arranged via the hotel concierge during or prior to your stay.

The currency in Morocco is Moroccan dirham (MAD). The dirham is a closed currency, which means it can only be bought once you arrive in Morocco. Euros and dollars (US and Canadian) are accepted in Morocco.

The average daily temperature in Marrakech in November is 17ºC with the temperature dropping at night to 11 ºC.
