The Spa at
Two Spa pavilions sit among gardens filled with birdsong and perfumed by exotic flora. The main pavilion offers 15 treatment rooms for massages, facials and body treatments, plus a salon and whirlpool. In the second building – reached by its own discreet entrance – couples and those embarking on more extensive spa journeys will find two luxurious spa suites, as well as a modern interpretation of the traditional hammam.
The property also features tennis courts and fitness facilities, and the Hotel will provide maps of jogging routes within its walls or through the symmetrical orchards of olive, cypress and fruit trees in the Menara Gardens.
Dining Options Abound
The dining experience at
Against a backdrop of mountains as the sun sets over the Menara Gardens, Zest at Bleu d’Orange comes to life for an evening of open-air cocktails and jazz on the rooftop.
Cuisine du Sud is the focus at Solano, where specialties from Morocco, Andalusia and Sicily come together. Drawn in by the heavenly aromas of fresh bread baking in the ovens, guests will be able to select antipasti and enjoy an extensive menu, either indoors or out.
Room for Everyone
Surrounding the Hotel’s central area – which includes pools, restaurants and the Spa – the pavilions of guest rooms and suites form a village connected by arcades, walkways and courtyards, evoking a contemporary medina filled with riads. Each of the 141 guest rooms and suites, which are among the largest in the city, has its own spacious balcony or terrace with mountain and garden views. Families and friends travelling together will also appreciate being able to connect two rooms via a private foyer.
Known as the Red City, Marrakech is the most important of Morocco’s imperial cities, situated in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, at the edge of the Sahara, and at the centre of the region’s economic and cultural life. It’s a relaxed city with an abundance of fig, pomegranate and olive trees that shade its friendly people and flavour its delicious cuisine.
At the nearby souks, the Hotel’s multi-lingual concierge team can direct guests to the best spots for fine leather goods, brass lamps, silk slippers, handwoven carpets and fragrant spices. Food lovers may also enjoy a visit to a local baker, where Moroccans bring their dough to be baked in a communal clay oven and then retrieve it in time for the evening meal.
