La Mamounia

Marrakech, Morocco

Traditional Moroccan luxury

Oozing with style and regal opulence, this 1923 property remains one of the premium retreats in Marrakech. Throughout time this hotel has proved popular with dignities, celebrities and well heeled travelers alike, most notably Sir Winston Churchill, who now has a suite named after him.

Recently returned to its former glory by Parisian designer Jacques Garcia this hotel is the epitome of modern luxury, yet retains plenty of its original heritage with hand-cut tiles, ornately carved plaster columns and hundreds of handmade lanterns.

Most rooms here offer a view of Koutoubia Mosque, the gardens or the Atlas Mountains and the suites are all individually decorated in their own distinctive style. The very English Churchill suite features a Chesterfield desk, distressed leather sofa and even Churchill’s hat. Meanwhile the Baldaquin suite is a vast expanse of soft, feminine white décor with romantic canopies and sumptuous linens over a king-sized bed.

La Mamounia has four restaurants, two of them (Le Français and L’Italien) boasting Michelin stars. Each has its own bar area and La Bar Marocain is expecially pleasant at night with its rooftop terrace offering the perfect view of the Atlas Mountains and dark, star-filled sky.

Set within the 12th-century ramparts surrounding the old medina, La Mamounia is ideally located for exploring Marrakech, yet remains an oasis of peace, hidden away from the bustle of the nearby souks. It is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a little indulgence and the opportunity to explore vibrant Marrakech whilst also enjoying the opportunity to relax and unwind in opulently luxurious surroundings.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
