The site of eighteenth-century garden parties and a favorite retreat for European jet set in the 1930s, Hotel La Mamounia has a history ripe with sophistication. The classic hotel has been recently restored to the height of grandeur with thoughtful pairings of antique and updated interiors by renowned French architect and designer Jacques Garcia.
The Hotel La Mamounia is a haven of bygone opulence just a short distance from the famed Medina, Jardin Majorelle and many spectacular sites in Marrakesh’s city center. Graciously-appointed rooms feature warm colors, lavish finishes and an array of attractive views of the city, mountains and landscape.
Hues of crimson and earthy brown invite relaxation in each room – the perfect mix of Moorish and modern decor. Crisp linens and marble en suite bathrooms lend to the feeling of royal accommodations.
A roomy lounge and separate bedroom create a scene as opulent as it is classic in each of four suites. Vistas of the Atlas Mountains and lush garden are just outside your window.
Seven themes define each of seven signature suites. Suite 7th Art nods to classic Hollywood with a professional projection room; Louis Majorelle’s signature blue and timeless art is celebrated in the Majorelle Suite; and Winston Churchill’s paintings decorate the walls of the Churchill Suite, overlooking the gardens he once described as “the loveliest place in the world.”
