It’s almost Christmas here in London and a bit on the cold side, but we’re still feeling the sun from our recent trip to Marrakech. We were in the beautiful Red City just a few months ago, visiting some fabulous venues including the Four Seasons Resort Marrakech and Palais Namaskar. Our feet had hardly touched the ground from this visit when we were back out there, this time staying at the magnificent Royal Mansour, enjoying endless luxuries from our wonderful hosts, and of course viewing the numerous event spaces the property has to offer.
The Royal Mansour is quite simply stunning. The hotel opened in 2010 with the intention of giving the feel of a typical Moroccan Riad. Boasting a fabulous bar, a number of different lounges, library, as well as three exclusive restaurants, it’s easy to see why the hotel has won numerous awards. The property includes 53 Riads, with a choice from Superior up to Grand Riads, however they are all pretty spectacular.
Given the unique nature of the property, there are endless opportunities for event spaces. The main space is in and around the lobby area of the hotel. The word lobby doesn’t do the space justice, and this is by no means your typical hotel space. A magnificent, bright open space in true Moroccan style, with light streaming in from all angles, in can be set up for the most beautiful wedding ceremony, or for all manner of celebrations, and even looks fabulous for Christmas.
Around the hotel are several areas which can also be used for weddings or private events, including the spa with its fabulously lush gardens, and the new Le Jardin pool area which has a rather stunning rose gold bar with adjoining space… perfect for a private party.
As for the service and numerous luxuries offered by the hotel, I don’t know where to start. They provide a true luxury experience. From the minute we stepped off our flight we were greeted by a member of staff and whisked through the airport to a private transfer. Attention to detail is everywhere, and the service exceptional. It’s easy to see why the Royal Mansour is so renowned and with hotels such as this on offer, the most fabulous climate and a new airport, it’s also easy to see why Marrakech is becoming an increasingly popular luxury destination.
