About Palazzo Desdemona

Set in an 18th-century mansion in the heart of Essaouira, Palazzo Desdemona is only a five-minute walk from both Castelo Real of Mogador and the beach. This heritage property boasts a rooftop terrace with views of the walled Essaouira old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The traditionally furnished rooms come with period decor, four-poster beds, and private bathrooms. Suites include frescoes and living areas. Selected suites highlight private terraces and fireplaces.

Palazzo Desdemona takes pride in its vaulted common lounges with an art gallery, a library, and a fireplace. Additional services such as concierge assistance, cultural tours, airport transfers, and laundry/dry cleaning are also offered.

A daily continental-inspired breakfast is provided for free. Guests may also relish in a cup of tea or hot chocolate alongside succulent pastries at the property’s sophisticated Palazzo Gourmand Tea & Art Salon.

Essaouira Citadel, a bustling and historic fort with a vibrant seafood market, is just a six-minute walk from the property.
