Description

A stay at The Royal Mansour is a memorable experience. Owned by the King of Morocco itself the building is an Islamic fortress complete with delicate details representing the very best of the Moorish architecture of North Africa. Local craftsmen, with their skills passed down through generations, have created a beautiful piece of architecture combining tradition and modernity.

After visiting the bustling Medina, the Royal Mansour offers an oasis of calm for you to escape too and enjoy having your every need being taken care of. This exquisite retreat has an air of tranquillity and elegance, and the individually designed riads are accessed by the staff via a series of underground tunnels for complete privacy and unrivalled service. The meticulously kept gardens which weave in between the riads have stunning flowers, and marble paths drawing you around corners, and welcoming you in further to this magical residence.

The private riads all have three floors with terraces, where breakfast can be served, and the larger riads have private dining rooms, luxurious plunge pools and some with private hammam rooms. Despite the traditionally themed design, no modern luxury has gone a miss and exemplar of this is the sliding roofs which close at the drop of rain. The spa designed to revitalize all your senses, encourages relaxation and a sense of tranquillity using modern and traditional techniques. The swimming pool is elegantly situated in the orangery-style pavilion; or for those who are feeling more active there is a fitness suite with modern equipment.

The impressive nature of the Royal Mansour is embodied not only in its accommodation, but also in the exquisite restaurant. The three star Michelin chef, Yannick Allene, creates dishes which are Moroccan at heart but also have a contemporary French twist. With the equally impressive wine list, and choice of eating in one of the three restaurants or bars, the candlelit garden, the Piano lounge or on your private terrace, you are sure to have a truly memorable dining experience.
