Concierge.com's insider take:

Privately owned by late fashion designer and longtime Marrakesh resident Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, the Majorelle Garden was created in the 1930s by French painter Jacques Majorelle whose legacy is a virulent shade of powder blue that carries his name. It colors the water channels, the urns, and the artist's former studio (which now showcases Saint Laurent's collection of Islamic art), making a striking contrast with bamboo groves, cacti, great palms, and pools floating with water lilies. The effect is like walking through a Gauguin painting. A small monument to Saint Laurent, who died in June of 2008 and whose ashes were scattered in the garden, has been erected here.

Open daily 8 am to 5 pm in winter, 8 am to 6:30 pm in summer.
