“Luxurious” for some people might mean the most expensive treatment in the world, for others, it might be a gorgeous setting. The Royal Mansour hotel in Morocco is both. It is a classic, excessive, stylish, glamorous, historic, romantic palace which features private villas and 5-star amenities for the jet set. It is the ultimate hideaway with cultural activities, sports activities, spa & wellness, a starred Chef, gastronomy, and it is family friendly.
Facing the original ramparts, a few steps from the Place Jemaa el-Fna, The Royal Mansour is one of the kingdom’s most sumptuous palaces. Located on a 3.5 hectare property, surrounded by its own ramparts pierced by gigantic doors, the Mansour was designed as a traditional medina. 53 riads separated by quiet, narrow streets, fountains, patios and lush gardens form a city within a city. Entrusted to the country’s finest craftsmen, the suites are exact replicas of traditional houses. Built on three levels, facing the interior, the rooms are built around a central patio and its fountain. Each riad has up to three bedrooms, a marble bathroom, a small garden and a rooftop terrace with a small swimming pool.
Protected by its own ramparts and its heavy bronze doors, this royal retreat is a unique site, an oasis of unsuspected luxury. One of the most beautiful spas on earth, the Royal Mansour has what must be one of the most indulgent hair treatments ever, blending Moroccan ingredients like the Liposilt Black lake mud, argan and essential oils from the Berber tribes of the Atlas Mountains, and hydrating, conditioning masks by Leonor Greyl from Paris. It leaves your hair unbelievably shiny, with renewed elasticity and bounce; your spirit, too, is seriously reinvigorated.
This 5 star hotel also features two gastronomic restaurants directed by the three star Parisian chef, Yannick Alleno.
