A brand new ultra-luxe hotel in a peaceful setting away from the busy heart of Marrakech.
As soon as you step over the threshold of this brand new hotel, it will strike you that it’s a truly special place. There are 28-acre gardens, which are filled with citrus and olive trees and have been exquisitely landscaped to make the most of the views of the Atlas Mountains. Grand archways create a frame and waterways draw your eye upwards to the snow-capped peaks. The hotel’s design really gives you a sense of place with palatial Moroccan architecture that’s been inspired by the 14th-Century Islamic college, Medersa Ben Youssef which you can visit during your stay in Marrakech.
Oberoi know that your room is a sanctuary so they have been designed with a calming ambience and comfort in mind. But there’s also a touch of under-the-radar opulence thanks to the nods to Moroccan style and vivid splashes of colour. They are all incredibly spacious, from the Deluxe Rooms with Private Terrace to the striking Royal Villa with Private Pool which has been modelled on a majestic Indian palace. The Deluxe Villas, the ground-floor Presidential Villas and the first-floor Royal Suite all have a private pool and views over the gardens.
The ode to Morocco doesn’t end with the architecture and design – the hotel’s fine dining restaurant Siniman gives you an unforgettable taste of the country, too. Mediterranean cuisine and international dishes with produce sourced from the hotel’s own organic garden are the focus at Tamimt which is decorated with grand chandeliers and intricately painted frescos. You’ll want to spend an hour or two before or after dinner at Vue, a bar that has incredible Atlas Mountain views and serves signature cocktails, fine wines and single malts.
