The Spa at
Set amid gardens filled with birdsong, the Neroli Spa Pavilion beckons couples and those seeking more extensive spa experiences. Named for the orange blossom that perfumes the air and cuisine of Marrakech, this exclusive space is reached by its own discreet entrance and features two luxurious spa suites plus a contemporary hammam. Ritual journeys may include the Spa’s signature Thousand and One Nights, including hammam bath and a traditional smoke essence ritual followed by a saffron, garnet and rose scrub and orange flower body wrap, and finally a facial with oils of rose, jasmine and orange flower. Individual hammam treatments include Marrakech Indulgence, a Gentle Hammam, and a longer Moroccan Hammam Ritual.
The Spa also offers a second pavilion with 15 treatment rooms. Facials by Natura Bisse take centre stage, including the Casanova Facial designed just for men. Massages include treatments with ILA products, such as the Kundalini Back Massage, named for the snake-like goddess of awareness, and the Manipura massage, meaning “beautiful jewel” in Sanskrit. For active travellers, the Spa also offers the Sport and Fitness Recovery massage, and use of a soothing whirlpool. Body wraps and scrubs fuse local essences including saffron and orange flower with the finest imported ingredients from Himalayan salt crystals and lemongrass to therapeutic bio plasma and seaweeds. The Spa’s salon offers pampering treatments for hands and feet, as well as hairstyling, waxing and brow shaping.
A Personalised Moroccan Adventure
The concierge team can arrange excursions that range from the beach to a ski resort, from the ancient to the modern. Adventurers may want to get a head start on a trek through the High Atlas Mountains by helicopter, or take a quad buggy to explore desert plains, canyons and rocky hills just minutes outside Marrakech. Individuals and families interested in traditional culture can even visit a Berber village in the mountains.
Back at the Resort, dining options include Solano – Brasserie du Sud, named for the southerly wind that caresses Morocco, Andalusia and Sicily; the poolside Azzera Grill with its namesake stone open counter; or the Inara (Arabic for “natural light”) Bar and Lounge.
More to Come: Marrakech’s Most Hotly Anticipated Dining Experience
French born and trained Executive Chef Christophe Gillino has conceived a Provençal menu for Bleu d’Orange that infuses seasonal local ingredients into fresh interpretations of classic French dishes. Food lovers may look forward to such delights as a crushed avocado cake with broad bean salad and artichokes niçoise; shrimp with essence of orange and carrot served with grainy mustard and parsley; bisque bouille, Bleu d’Orange’s signature interpretation of traditional bouillabaisse (seafood soup); grass-fed lamb from the Atlas Mountains with lemons and olives; roasted duck with figs, anise and squash; and for dessert, chocolate fondant cake with cherry licorice reduction, or frozen crème brulée with vanilla Bourbon, crispy oranges with strawberry balsamic reduction and fresh ground pepper.
Atop the restaurant and against a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, Zest at Bleu d’Orange will be the city’s best place for open-air cocktails and live music as the sun sets over the Menara Gardens.
