Location

The Mandarin Oriental Marrakech lies in 20 hectares of fragrant gardens and gnarly olive groves. Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech, is a five-star luxury resort only minutes from the city center.

Style & Character

Architect Pascal Desprez worked alongside renowned French architects Patrick Gilles and Dorothee Boissier to develop a rustic yet sophisticated finish. The final look is elegant yet stylish, with obvious Berber and Andalusian-Arabic influences.

Rooms

Inspired by Berber and Moorish influences, the 54 luxurious villas and nine spacious suites make this hotel almost boutique in size and certainly exclusive. Each villa features a secluded wall garden, swimming pool, hot tub, and an extensive area for sunbathing and shaded alfresco dining. The nine suites come with their own rooftop plunge pool and boast stunning garden and countryside views.

Service & Facilities

Guests can indulge at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a unique experience featuring spa suites with private terraces and gardens designed for outdoor treatments. The spa includes two luxurious hammams, an indoor heated pool, a fitness center, and a yoga studio.

Food & Drink

The hotel also plays host to several restaurants and bars. The Mes’Lalla restaurant serves traditional Moroccan cuisine with a contemporary twist under the leadership of renowned Chef Meryem Cherkaoui. Le Salon Berbère boasts stunning views over the resort’s blue and green pools and the Atlas Mountains, serving traditional Moroccan and international breakfast, drinks, and light bites throughout the day.

Conclusion

Bathe to the calls for prayer from the minarets and the scent of jasmine and night-blooming cestrumand. This city will enchant you if you let it, and the Mandarin Oriental is the perfect escape. A peaceful and serene paradise under the warmth of the Moroccan sun.
