The luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel Marrakech in Morocco is a five-star exclusive resort that combines the Moroccan city’s picturesque charm with a crisp cosmopolitan look. With the Atlas Mountains as a backdrop, Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech is an oasis of luxury close to the medina.

Given the building boom in Marrakech in recent years, a glamorous new hotel seems to be announced every year. In this case, though, the entry of the Mandarin Oriental Marrakech into the burgeoning hotel scene is a major announcement given its past attempt, signed and then withdrawn, to open a hotel in the Palmeraie along with its striking look.

The architect of the project is Pascal Desprez while the interiors of Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech, rustic yet sophisticated, were created by renowned French design duo and architects, Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier.

Patrick has focused on clean lines and symmetrical forms while Dorothée has added subtle Berber and Spanish Arabic design touches. The Gilles & Boissier style is clearly seen throughout the hotel, with its emphasis on juxtaposing aesthetics: striking but discreet, luxurious yet unobtrusive.

The exterior architecture isn’t as startling as other resorts in the area such as the longstanding Amanjena, last year’s new kid on the block Royal Palm or the previous attention-getter, the King’s elaborate, multimillion-dollar Royal Mansour.

The designers pile on the glamour inside, mixing Arabic, Berber and Andalusian styles often in bold contrasts of black and white. By combining Berber and Spanish Arabic patterns with contemporary furnishings for the villas and suites, with modern bedroom design, the designers have created a refined sense of place at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech.

Berber inspiration is also found in the hotel’s five restaurants, dining room, and bars, which are decorated with contemporary reminders of Moroccan style arts and crafts.

No such tensions exist in the spa, a Mandarin specialty, with treatments derived from various disciplines, Berber, Thai, and Chinese Traditional Medicine included.

Besides the main swimming pool, the Pool Garden offers a refreshing outdoor environment to enjoy a variety of healthy dishes prepared with locally sourced produce. The resort itself is situated on 50 acres of landscaped gardens with views of the Atlas Mountains and proximity to the golf courses that, as long time observers complain, are increasing in number, straining the desert city’s water supply.

Guests at Mandarin Oriental hotel, Marrakech delight in an atmosphere that combines the exotic charm and relaxed lifestyle of the Red City with the oriental heritage of the award-winning hotel group that put them in the top hotels worldwide.
