On some days during the three years it took to restore Marrakech’s undisputed grandedame hotel, more than 1,000 craftsmen were at work on the site. Parisian designer Jacques Garcia, entrusted with returning the 1923 property to its former glory, sought out the city’s most talented painters and wood carvers. The craftsmen he chose laid millions of hand-cut tiles, pieced together wood-marquetry walls, carved ornate designs into plaster columns and forged hundreds of handmade lanterns. Thanks to them, the palace is once again a vibrant celebration of the city’s past, present and future, displaying Moroccan style, complete with intricate patterns and arabesques based on Berber and Arab-Andalusian traditions.

A stay at La Mamounia is a visual experience, with plays of light between indoor and outdoor spaces, and beautifully contrasting colours, such as the zellige tilework in Majorelle blue, green and orange. It is also a tactile experience, with the flowing lines of arabesque sculptures, the textured and velvety smooth fabrics, and the gentle warmth of wood, as well as the subtle, enchanting presence of water in the hotel’s fountains and ponds – a beautiful symbol of life.

The hotel also offers delights for the nose, with fragrances of jasmine, orange blossom, cedar and powerful leather. Last but not least, there are delicacies for the palate, such as almond milk and dates, which are served to welcome guests to the hotel in keeping with the Moroccan tradition of hospitality.
