Mandarin Oriental Marrakech
Exerting its influence around the world some more, the Mandarin Oriental opens in Marrakech
The Mandarian Oriental needs no introduction, and despite its Marrakech outpost being years in the making, we are firm believers in the proverb: good things come to those who wait. An olfactory haven, gardens are gorged with over 100,000 roses. Amidst olive groves sit 54 private riads and suites that open out onto secluded bottle-green pools - a handful of which command views of the Atlas Mountains. Outfittings find strength in the Mandarin Oriental’s signature Asian style, though heritage is kept close to hand with discernible Berber decorations such as rugs and teapots.
While traditional Moroccan food subscribes to the maxim of fine dining, there’s a more relaxed Mediterranean vibe poolside. In the spa hammams are as traditional as they come; outdoor areas are used for treatments, and ginger, honey and argan are oft called-upon ingredients.
If you’re in the market for some winter sun, look no further.
