Dating back to 1923, the legendary La Mamounia has long been considered Marrakech’s most luxurious hotel. Although it was left behind in the luxe stakes after far more stylish (albeit smaller) riads opened in the ’90s, it re-emerged as the most majestic of the city’s accommodation after a $176 million renovation in 2009.

Recently emerged from another comprehensive refurbishment, undertaken during the lockdown, the hotel has never looked better; sumptuous interiors, shimmering pools, a monumental spa and regal-looking rooms make this a favourite with royalty, film stars and celebrities.

The location isn’t the most convenient for sightseeing – though free shuttles are provided. The hotel can organise private visits and exclusive showings with artists, jewellers, fashion designers, and artisans.

Surrounding area

Located on the edge of the Medina (although it can feel as if it’s outside the walls), and not quite in Gueliz, it may seem as if La Mamounia is in the middle of nowhere, with very little that’s notable in the immediate vicinity.

In fact, it’s a very handy spot if you want to split your time between the Old City and New Town (Gueliz/Hivernage), each a ten-minute stroll or short taxi ride away.
