Royal Mansour Marrakech
The palatial entryway at Royal Mansour leads to an open air courtyard, lit at night by ethereal lanterns hanging from above. The interior spaces, like the bar furnished with antique mirrors and the cozy, jewel-box-like Cigar Bar, provide glamorous spots in which to relax. While the library is replete with information on Moroccan culture, science, and art, the piece de resistance is the retractable ceiling, which opens to an extraordinary view of the Marrakech sky. The 53 stunning riads are true to the classic riad style, configured around a central, open-air courtyard with few openings to the outside. And artwork from 80 contemporary Moroccan artists is on display both in the riads and throughout the property.
The three restaurants, overseen by thrice Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno, are the best in Marrakech and represent the predominant cultures in Morocco: Moroccan, of course, and French. La Grande Table Marocaine is draped in honeyed tones with low seats and benches and a soundtrack of local music. La Grande Table Française’s elegant white décor, accented with veils of silver thread and crystal chandeliers, showcases French glamour. For casual, all-day dining La Table serves up light Mediterranean fare in the welcome shade of ancient olive trees on an outdoor terrace.
Like the brilliant restaurants, the majority of the property is covered in dazzling tile work and detailed textiles. In contrast, the expansive Spa is a monument to tranquility. Its white, birdcage-like atrium is constructed of metal lacework that plays with the light. Serene treatment rooms play host to an array of therapies using such illustrious brands as Chanel, Sisley, marocMaroc, and Dr. Hauschka. The Spa also features a stunning indoor pool with high, vaulted glass ceilings and a traditional hammam with its narrow, unadorned passageways and succession of spaces, lighting effects, and lanterns.
