Royal Mansour Marrakech

An intoxicating show of Moroccan style

Commissioned by the King of Morocco with the aim to capture the best of the country's architecture and visual culture, Royal Mansour Marrakech is nothing short of immaculate. With 80 percent of the hotel crafted by hand, each room and riad (private residence — you get your own home here, not merely a room or suite) is unique in its own way.

Designed to host heads of state and visiting royalty, the property is extravagant in the best way — think gold walls, onyx floors, mother-of-pearl details and carved cedar ceilings. Beneath your feet, a network of underground tunnels allows staff to discreetly move from one end of the complex to the other so that the VIPs can revel in a hushed, serene environment.

Due to its ideal location in the center of Marrakech, Royal Mansour provides a convenient home base from which to explore the city, or to arrange adventures a little further afoot.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The entire property boasts an air of exclusivity, from the sprawling riads and private pools to the trickling fountains and quiet courtyards.
  • A stay at this Marrakech retreat wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the sumptuous spa. In addition to the array of indulgent treatments (who could say no to a facial featuring melted honey?), the 27,000-square-foot facility boasts two hammams, a Watsu bath area, a salon and a luxurious tea lounge.
  • The extravagant hotel was built for royalty. The property took more than 1,200 artisans three years (and an allegedly unlimited budget) to build.
  • A recent refresh introduced even more lavish touches, including a sparkling outdoor pool (complete with plush cabanas), expanded gardens by famed Spanish landscape architect Luis Vallejo and an alfresco sushi spot Le Jardin.
  • The Les Clefs d’Or concierge team can help you arrange a wide array of once-in-a-lifetime Moroccan experiences, including riding camels through the desert, dining in Bedouin tents or taking a hot-air balloon ride over the Sahara.

Things to Know

  • Each riad has its own private open-air courtyard and rooftop terrace. Go there for a leisurely breakfast or nightcap by the fireplace underneath the stars.
  • Little ones will love the Royal Mansour’s fantastic kids club, where they’ll learn all about Morocco through hand-on activities like chocolate-making classes and camel rides.
  • Be sure to look out for the Marrakech hotel’s pet parakeets, which can be found in an ornate birdcage in the lobby.
  • Fashionistas will love that the popular Yves Saint Laurent Museum is just a breezy 15-minute drive from the luxury hotel. 

The Rooms

  • The 53 sumptuous riads range from one to four bedrooms.
  • Each of these luxe accommodations is unique, featuring a wide array of fabrics, original works of art and custom-made furniture that continue the Moroccan theme from the courtyard to the bathrooms.
  • All of the riads have a patio overlooking the central courtyard on the ground floor and a private pool and terrace on the roof with views of the city or the Atlas Mountains.
  • In addition to your typical tech touches (complimentary Wi-Fi and LCD TVs), each riad’s roof is equipped with special sensors that will automatically close at the first drop of rain.

The Restaurants

  • Evenings here are best enjoyed by indulging in one of the Marrakech hotel’s four restaurants. La Grande Table Marocaine, La Table and Le Jardin are overseen by internationally acclaimed chef Yannick Alléno.
  • The crown jewel of the property’s dining venues is La Grande Table Marocaine, considered one of the best Moroccan restaurants in the country. Impeccable service, stylish surroundings and phenomenal food (try the pigeon pastilla — an elevated take on the traditional local spiced meat pie —and fish tagine) make this eatery a must.
  • Debuted in December 2019, SESAMO features a menu by acclaimed chef Massimiliano Alajmo, who combines his Italian roots and locally sourced Moroccan ingredients in dishes like garlic and red pepper spaghetti with vegetables from Royal Mansour’s gardens. You also will find a selection of Alajmo's signature offerings from his Italy restaurant, Le Calendre, including crispy risotto and beetroot sorbet.
  • Le Jardin is a casual poolside eatery offering alfresco dining on a large terrace shaded by fruit trees. Dine on international fare with an Asian flair ranging from royal sea bream ceviche with yuzu to sushi made with king prawns, sage and avocado.
