Jardin Majorelle - Review
Like an oasis is to a dessert, this garden is a big relief in middle of the rhythmic chaos of Marrakesh. It took Jacques Majorelle 40 years to create this passionate symbol of love and symbiotic co-existence. And oh what a marvelous job he did! Adopted by the uber glamorous Yves Saint Laurent who gave it a fresh lease of life and converted it into a crowd-pulling, awe-inspiring abode of love.
A number of birds dance hypnotically around the rare trees and shrubs of Jardin Majorelle. Fountains laugh gloriously and the multicolored bougainvillea enchants the wearied soul. Bamboo thickets give this garden lovely shades of green and the lush flora whisper tales of legendary lovers.
One can head to the Berber museum which is a part of this 2-acre haven, designed by Paul Sinoir, to witness the personal collection of paintings and artifacts of Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent.
Since it’s a popular sight in Marrakech, it often gets crowded by enthralled tourists but even the crowds don’t take away from the tranquility of this heaven on earth.

Jardin Majorelle, Marrakesh Reviews
A beautiful and relaxing garden in the middle of Marrakesh. Situated a short distance from the main square, this is a wonderful place to visit if you need a break from the crowds. But make sure you get there early, b/c the crowds will eventually find their way here too. If you get here late you'll have to wait in line outside, and the narrow paths in the garden get difficult to navigate with so many people. There are lots of people taking glamour shots, so you may find yourself waiting around on them too. Unfortunately some people have also defaced some of the plants,which is a shame, as succulents grow slowly. Don't write your name on the plants, it's not cute or cool.
Amazing garden. Love his place. You must visit. On top of amazing scenery they have probably the best staff members. Super polite. And one of them will take amazing pictures for you on your phone for free. 💚💚💚
A must visit if you are in Marrakech! This 2.5 acres garden was a baby of French painter Jacques Majorelle in 1950. It is filled with exotic plants from many countries. Walking inside the shade of trees and plants is very refreshing. Pay attention on the color blue used in many structure on the garden as it is a special mix of blue called Majorelle blue (and patented!) Do visit the Berber museum, housed in a small building washed in Majorelle blue. This place shows a beautiful collection of Berber culture including jewelries (additional fee applied) Do come early around 8 before the tourists swarm the place.
I advise arriving to Jardin Majorelle early before the line gathers. It's an immensely popular tourist destination for good reason, but once it gets packed then you lose a bit of the serenity of the gardens. The museum and gardens are indeed wonderful, and filled to the brim with lush plant life collected from all over the world. It should absolutely be on your top to-do list in Marrakech... just try to go in the off-hours.
The garden is fairly large and beautiful. There is lots of shade, nice water features and some nice areas to sit down and relax. We also did the Berber museum which was interesting. It is a little pricey to go on, costing us 100 DH each for the garden and museum. Still a nice place to visit though!
