Experience a unique stay in Morocco and all the magic that comes with it in this inimitable luxury hotel filled with Moroccan artistry and architecture.
This is an excerpt from Lifestyle Asia’s November 2023 Issue.
The Royal Mansour Marrakech is a doorway to a hidden world. Entering through its gates will take you to a unique luxury hotel that honors privacy and the richness of Moroccan artistry and architecture. It’s found just a few steps away from Jemaa el-Fnaa square, making it perfect for travelers looking to explore the heart of the city during the day while still being able to retreat to a quiet haven at night.
HISTORIC, TIMELESS, AND UNFORGETTABLE
The hotel immediately welcomes you with a wealth of space across its five-hectare private estate. It’s modeled after an authentic medina which you will immediately recognize with the way they welcome guests through a richly decorated patio lobby filled with extraordinary mosaic pieces, cedar wood ceilings, stunning furniture, and flowy white curtains.
Guests can take a stroll around lush gardens, winding terracotta-hued alleyways, and gorgeous riads instead of standard hotel rooms. It’s the only hotel in the world to offer the stylish concept and it does so with a vision of contemporary design executed in a way that recognizes traditional Moroccan heritage.
53 independent riads dot the vast estate and each one proudly serves as a showcase of Moroccan handicrafts while maintaining a unique identity. Distributed across five categories, riad sizes range from 140 to 850 sqm, with the exception of the Grand Riad standing at a massive 1,800 sqm.
INCORPORATING TECHNOLOGY WITH TRADITION
Inside each riad are three floors rich in color and various textures from rugs, fabrics, wood fixtures, custom furniture, and uniquely Moroccan zelliges. The door opens to a patio with a fountain and further exploration will lead you to the bedrooms, the private pool, and a roof terrace with a view of the Atlas Mountains.
The insides of the riads also provide a spectacular view with over 250 works of art that are a result of Moroccan creativity. Technology is also highly integrated amidst traditional motifs. Wall-mounted touchscreen panels allow full control, from closing the glass roof over the patio to controlling the light and temperature of every room for full personalization and control over your privacy.
Service, on the other hand, adds a whole other dimension to your Moroccan experience. Butlers take care of everything–they anticipate every desire and need to keep you at your most fulfilled and comfortable without being intrusive through service doors inside every riad. The Royal Mansour Marrakech’s gourmet experiences are unique and endless. Explore everything from casual places like La Table for contemporary French brasserie and afternoon tea; open-air restaurant Le Jardin for salads, tapas, and Japanese dishes; and Sesamo for simple gourmet Italian cuisine with friends and family to finely-crafted fare at Le Grande Table Marocaine for modern and traditional Moroccan cuisine.
