Set within the walls of Marrakech’s old city, the Royal Mansour Marrakech is an oasis of 53 elegant private riads, quiet courtyards, lush gardens, fine dining restaurants overseen by Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno and an award-winning Spa.
The Royal Mansour is a magnificent blend of extravagant Moroccan style and modern luxury. Service is polished and discreet; an underground network of tunnels for staff is leading to the private riads, ensuring absolute privacy.
“Every guest will find a cuisine to match their tastes: Moroccan, Mediterranean, French, Asian,” says Yannick Alléno, the much-garlanded Parisian Chef, who believes that variety is key to a truly enjoyable dining experience.
The Spa creates an intimate universe of its own, it is entered via an impressive atrium of whitewashed wrought iron, which evokes a giant birdcage. Its height and luminosity, with natural light pouring in from all angles, is striking yet calming.
Here, highly qualified massage and beauty therapists, sports coaches, hair stylists and colorists share the same goal: the utmost wellbeing of their guests.
Le Jardin is the perfect setting for a day by the pool with its elegant pavilions nestling beneath palms and olive trees. This spring-summer season, the outdoor area of the Palace offers exclusive new experiences to discover.
A day in a private poolside pavilion, lunch in the open air under the Marrakech’ sun, you can even be pampered by the water’s edge in a Spa pavilion then do your beachwear shopping in the pavilion closed by.
The magic of the sun setting down illuminates the elegance of the bar and launches the Happy Hour! Tapas and festive atmosphere are electrified by the DJ or the Live Band beats that perform every evening of the week.
Next “A Table” for dinner, you will be amazed by the extraordinary creativity of the cuisine that reveals the harmony of Asian and Mediterranean flavors.
