The entrance to the boutique hotel Peacock Pavilions, comes at the end of winding stone paths though grassy fields. The collection of beautifully designed pavilions, lavish spaces that boast courtyards and exteriors that are beautifully suited for the area, lie just a few miles outside of Marrakech. The arched doorways and windows are lovely, making sure that the rooms inside each pavilion benefit from the bright Morocco sun.
From the moment guests pass through the gated entryway and make their way up the gravel path to the main house at Peacock Pavilions, they are transported to a magical world of lifestyle blogger Maryam Montague’s making, and it all begins with the main room.

The white walls are the perfect backdrop for Montague’s colorful collection which mixes modern furnishings with antique and modern pieces from Morocco, China and India. The arched doorway on the far left leads to the hotel’s own souk, a small but stunning shop that displays a selection of good curated by Montague to support her non-profit organization, Project Soar (http://www.projectsoarmorocco.org/).
