Just lay back, relax and look at the view. So unique, so beautiful and peaceful. The resort itself is pretty, clean and very welcoming. I also had a Morrocon hamam treatment and it was wonderful... We celebrated our anniversary and got upgraded to a room with a balcony facing the view.. ❤ The food is good but we're all vegetarians and we felt like there weren't enough options for us... Other than that, everything was perfect.
A wonderful hotel with amazing views of the lake amid the Mid Atlas Mountains. about 3 hours journey fro Marrakech airport. We were luck to be upgraded to a room with panoramic views. The hotel is on a hillside with 2 pools and a lower part with infinity pool and lunchtime restaurant nearer the lake where there are water activities. The restaurant served delicious food with a very good choice and incredibly generous servings! The Moroccan breakfast was delicious and at weekend there is buffet style breakfast and dinner with an amazing array of different dishes. There is a bar which was very relaxing and alcohol was served though very expensive. We had a hammam booked and a massage, The hammam was interesting whereby we were nearly scrubbed to our bone but a great experience. we had booked a massage and I must say mine was probably one of the best I have ever had whereas my husband's was not a great experience. If you are going for a thai massage, choose the more mature female masseur. The staff are so incredibly friendly and helpful and cannot do enough to make your stay a great experience, including waiting staff, managers and housekeeper. Not a great deal to see outside the hotel though we did walk up to the dam on a rather precarious mountain road with falling rocks, so be aware! A great stay and definitely different!
Set on terraces on a steep hill overlooking the Bin el Ouidane lake, with electric carts that can take you up to your rooms. Rooms, even the standard ones,* are nicely done, ample, with all the amenities, and the upper categories have terraces with lake-view. Wi-Fi works well throughout. Hotel offers varied sports on the lake, plus 2 pools (one indoor at the spa). Food, generally a buffet, is well varied and good quality. They even have fresh seafood, amazing considering how remote they are. Yes, it is remote, not exactly easy to fit into a grand tour of the country, at least an hour's drive over snaking mountain roads from Beni Mellal, the nearest major town (the route via Afourer is a bit longer but easier driving from Beni Mellal than the one via Ouaouizeght). I wouldn't suggest it as just an overnight stop; allow at least a half day to enjoy the scenery and activities. *(When booking, ask for a room that is NOT in the main building, above the restaurant: the noise from the restaurant and night club below can be a nuisance late into the night.)
I stayed at the Widiane Suite & Spa in the Honeymoon Suite in January 2019, I booked a suite but got upgraded. I wanted to experience the hotel, so I can make sure when I book tours for my clients that they are staying at a superior hotel... I was not disappointed...the hotel is beautiful! But more importantly the staff is very friendly and pleasant...I totally forgot the name of the young lady that checked me in, but she was amazing, very friendly, very courteous, she gave me a tour of the different types of rooms and suites. Now I am planning several tours for my clients with JD Morocco Tours, Sarl and I am making it a point to add at least a day to Beni Mellal, not only to visit the waterfalls but to stay at this hotel. Absolutely amazing!
A truly sensational location away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. I expeirenced a 5* location, service and rooms. Can highly recommend the hotel for those who want to get away from it all for a few days and relax. Looking forward to the new rooms and villas which are being built. Hotel also offers water sports from the jetty, a great way to epxlore the amazing lake! I would definetly recommend.
After travelling extensively throughout Morocco over the past three years, visiting many amazing Hotels, Riads and Resorts and I have often heard about this mystical place called Widiane and finally I have been able to visit and stay for two nights along with two special friends. What a wonderful surprise and it more than lived up to its reputation. We have had wonderful and inventive meals, superb spa and gym facilities, fun boat ride across the lake and onto the stunning Gorg and subsequent lunch on the river at Widiane’s satilite restaurant, had peaceful yoga sessions in the sunshine by the infinity swimming pool, looked after by friendly and attentive staff and the highlight was a two hour hike up the mountain side with top guide Majid. We haven’t had time to do many other activities and can’t wait until our next visit, both in lake water sports and also activities around the hotel. This is a must visit resort in Morocco. And best of all is the mind blowing scenery that has been the highlight of the stay. One of the great experiences of my travelling life.
No doubt it is rather adventurous to get to the Widiane, the road across the mountains isn’t tha good...bit the hotel is definitely worth the trip. To start with: The view across the lake is stunning and reminded us of the Scottish Highlands - the resort is built into the mountain-side and thus every room has this feature. The room was lovely prepared with rose petals and snacks (no, we were not on Honeymoon!). The service at the hotel was very very good - the staff at the restaurant as well as the guy who took us to our rooms in the little golf cart, no wishes left unanswered. The food at the restaurant was delicous and the breakfast plentiful. One of our favourites during our trip through Maroc!
I really like the place and the service, the hotel is amazing with the typical moroccan architecture, the staff are kind and helpful, especially the upstair restaurant supervisor Mr Nawfal he s really professional and offering great services.
We returned to Widiane hoping to have the same experience as on our previous visit. We needn't have worried as the standards had actually improved! The food was excellent, even the set menu, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We took out a pedalo on the lake which we hadn't done previously and also had a Thai massage and a guided trek in the mountains. It is well worth the 3 hour drive from Marrakech. Hopefully we'll be back again.
i was having a tour in tripadvisor .. then i remembered my disappointment .. i could not pass without review it. too be honest .. we did not spend the night in your hotel . you stopped us outside like we have a desease or something waiting for the reception for more than 30 minutes. the securty guard treated us so badly.. we got the impression that we are in a hotel with no stars .. we called the manager .. he apologised but we decided to go to another hotel in ben ouidane where we had such an amazing experience. finally Bin ouidane is gorgeous place to visite .. but choosing the bad hotel can ruin the moment for and gives nothing but bad memories.
