Founded by a painter and developed by a fashion designer, Jardin Majorelle is a 4.8 hectare (12 acre) site in which nature and art intertwine. A striking blue villa sits at the heart of the botanical garden, filled with numerous water features and over 300 plant species from around the world. Developed over a period of 40 years by the painter Jacques Majorelle, and bought in 1980 by designer Yves Saint-Laurent, the garden includes a museum of Islamic art.

  • For me the gardens are the most place in Marrakech. The colors are beautiful and well maintained it is just too good. I visited the Museum of Berbers and the Museum St. Laurent. Top

  • A very careful and particular garden. The Berber interesting Museum. Very busy place tourist.

  • ... for my taste not the price that is paid and the long tail that wait worth it. Garden is taken care of, but the site is overcrowded and is not very big, so it might be a place to relax, but it is impossible to enjoy it.

  • Beautiful place to visit. Large selection of plants and flowers. We have been lucky as also the Yves Saint L. Garden was open. We recommend to come very early, best would be at 8 in the morning. If you are late make sure to come around 9:30 and queue in front of the Yves saint Laurent museum and buy a ticket for both places. The museum opens at 10 and you don’t have to queue afterwards. Tickets are cheaper for students. (Roughly half the price)
  • Arrived to Majorelle at roughly 11am on a Wednesday in early March and the line was approximately 20-minutes long. The grounds are beautiful but crowded (hence my 4-stars). Very photogenic location, but too many tourists to really enjoy the experience. Lines get pretty long and there's no ability to purchase tickets ahead of time. There was an abundance of cactus and the striking cobalt blue appeared on every walkway, wall and in the villa. Would been nice to live here, all you need to do is become a world famous fashion designer and it can be yours :)
  • Absolutely beautiful. Go early (before 9am) and you get to skip the massive queue that starts forming from then. Plus your photos will look far more amazing without the venue being crammed with other tourists. We went at 8.30 and it was perfect! 70MAD to enter and well worth it!
  • Such a lovely place! Would recommend visiting it for sure. Don't get disarmed by the queue it goes pretty fast and then you can enjoy a colourful oasis! There's not much inside but the place is great for a photo shoot, it's so vivid and full of life! Inside they have a coffee place which is nice to go to.
  • Was initially very skeptical of the Jardin Majorelle and has assumed that it would be a tourist trap (the 70 DHS entree fee only furthered this skepticism). Immediately upon entering the space, however, my concerns melted away. It's quite shocking, in fact, how oasis-like the space is; a bastion of quiet, natural wonder in the middle of the new-Marrakesh. Even despite the throngs of people frozen in a hundred different ideal picture-taking positions, I found the garden to be enchanting as well as inviting. The Majorelle blue juxtaposing the vivid green of saguaro cacti fills you with a quiet magic that makes the 30 minute wait in line seem totally worth it. The gift shop is equally incredible if you have hundreds of Euros to spend.
