King of Morocco's Royal Mansour Marrakech to Open in November

Posted: Jun. 9th, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Resorts: In November, the King of Morocco will unveil the ultra-luxurious Le Royal Mansour resort in Marrakech, consisting of 53 beautifully-appointed individual riads, traditional Moroccan dwellings with interior gardens. His Majesty, Mohammed IV, has spared no expense to create a new icon of Moroccan elegance and establish the locale as one if the worlds premier luxury travel destinations. In addition to the riads, the eight-acre property will feature three restaurants and a Moroccan spa. Built into the ancient wall of Marrakech, the resort recreates an historical medina and is punctuated with Andalusian courtyards, winding alleyways, and spectacular water displays and fountains.

Each of the riads, which range in size from 1,400-sq.-ft. to a palace-sized 21,520-sq.-ft., is uniquely designed and furnished with silks and brocades, ornate tiles, and handcrafted wood and antique furniture. Riad lobbies welcome guests into open-air courtyards surrounded by a bar, living area, and in some cases, a dining room; first floors house bedrooms that overlook the private courtyard below; and roof terraces (above) with sun beds and private pools provide stunning views of Marrakech or the Atlas mountains. The 26,900 sq.-ft. spa is located in its own glazed pavilion surrounded by a moat and features a fitness center, spa treatment rooms, and an indoor pool.
