Set in the heart of the imperial city, mere minutes from the Jemaa el-Fnaa Square, the opulent La Mamounia remains one of Marrakech’s most legendary hotels.
An oasis of peace set amid 17 acres of fragrant gardens, La Mamounia was first built in 1923. The work of acclaimed designer Jacques Garcia, the hotel blends contemporary design and technology with traditional Moroccan influences to create a grand and sumptuous ambience. Rich colours and fabrics merge beautifully with original Zellige tiling, intricate mosaics and carved woodwork.
Rooms are incredibly inviting - think luxurious marble bathrooms, huge king beds and plush furnishings throughout. Many have a private terrace or balcony, while a select few enjoy the addition of their own pool.
When it comes to facilities, you’ll find a Fitness Pavilion nestled in the gardens, two clay tennis courts and even a screening room. And that’s without mentioning the dazzling underground spa and its extensive menu of restorative treatments – the ultimate treat after a day of exploring the souks and alleyways of the old medina. Meanwhile, La Mamounia’s four restaurants make the most of fresh ingredients plucked straight from the organic vegetable garden, with a choice of Moroccan, Asian and Italian dishes.
