Mandarin Oriental — Morocco

Stretching out more than 20 hectares (the U.S. equivalent of 50 acres), the Mandarin Oriental in Marrakech, Morocco lies alongside stunning and deliciously fragrant olive groves. The five-star luxury resort, just minutes from the city center within Marrakech, offers guests world-class dining and the consummate Moroccan getaway experience. The Atlas Mountains serve as a natural backdrop to the hotel, which sits within a distance from the city’s medina.

Pairing together luxury, style, and traditional Moroccan touches, the rooms and villas at the Mandarin Oriental offer guests everything they need for a completely relaxed getaway. Bookings include the Atlas Suite, which is enough for three people; the Panoramic Suite; the Mandarin Pool Villa, Infinity Pool Suite, with room for five people; the Royal Suite; Oriental Pool Villa; and Penthouse, with enough room for 19 guests.

Dining options include the Mes’Lalla, which serves traditional Moroccan with a modern touch; the international Le Salon Berbère; and the Pool Garden, which showers guests with Mediterranean fare. A spa and wellness center is also on-site at the Mandarin, as well as a fitness center and the traditional Hammam, used by Moroccans once a week as a ritual-based body treatment that includes steaming, scrubbing, hair washing, and massaging of the skin until it glows. Combining detoxifying and steam treatments, the body is exfoliated, rejuvenated and well rested.
