At the Royal Mansour Marrakech, rooms and hotel suites are replaced with luxury riads spread across a medina filled with little alleyways and secret doors. With this one-of-a-kind concept, each riad has three floors and is uniquely decorated with its own style. You may select any of these 53 private residences and you will be in for one of the most beautiful experiences of your life. The door of your chosen riad opens out onto a patio and reveals an elegant décor like no other. Subtly varying zelliges, fabrics, wood features, rugs, carved plaster and custom-made furniture presents a harmonious and elegant vibe. Take in splendid views of the Atlas Mountains from your roof terrace, dip in your very own private pool and immerse yourself in a complete Moroccan lifestyle.
Several restaurants and bars within the hotel bring you various culinary delights crafted by three-Michelin-star Chefs, Yannick Alleno and Massimiliano Alajmo. Housing what some say is the best restaurant in Marrakech, La Grande Table Marocaine offers fine dining with a fresh spin of Morocco and Marrakech. The Sesamo offers all the flavours of Italy in a beautiful Venetian setting, while Le Jardin Bar and Restaurant amazes guests with culinary masterpieces in an al-fresco setting. In the enchanting lobby or on a balcony overlooking the Koutoubia Mosque, you can enjoy delicious treats and indulgent afternoon teas in French or English style. The intimate atmosphere, dim lights and cedarwood logs burning in the fireplace set the mood for the Royal Mansour’s Marrakech Bars – each bar a trip to satisfy your senses and a refuge for your every desire.
For happy family memories, the kids club at the Royal Mansour is set near the garden and pool, a few steps away from Le Jardin de Lila which is a space dedicated to children aged 4 to 10. Shared activities, treats, storytelling, personal attention with lots of laughter and fun keep children entertained and parents happy. This leaves the adults time to experience the Royal Mansour Spa that is a 2500sqm 3-floor sanctuary completely devoted to well-being and relaxation. With an infinite range of treatments carried out in a haven of whiteness and aromatic fragrances, you will immediately be taken over by a rush of tranquillity you have never felt before.
