Beaming with a glow, the 2014 opened Royal Palm Marrakech is the newest kid on the Moroccan block. The five-star plus golf resort and villa hotel is a truly grand hotel in a spectacular location, nestled between the Atlas Mountains and the ancient Red City.
The hotel is an interesting mix of contemporary design influenced by Moroccan tradition. While most of the decor is handmade by local craftsmen, the carpets, tapestries and tiles are inspired by Berber motifs.
The hotel features three pools with the main pool stretching the length of main building – a shallow, calm bath that meanders beneath bridges and around curves of the manicured gardens.
An over water walkway leads to the main restaurant, Le Caravane,that leads to a handful of private dining alcoves for two. Whats great is that the romantic setting comes at no extra cost, and just needs to be pre-reserved. There is also al fresco dining and the Captain’s Table. Le Bar was a personal favourite with its golden and black decor and the Moroccan lanterns.
The Senior Suite at the Royal Palm Marrakesh is a treat. Offering unprecedented views of the snow capped-Atlas Mountains in the background, the suite offers exceptional view of the lush-green golf course. These comfortable, spacious suites include a lovely bedroom and a separate lounge which leads out on to the terrace.
Combining contemporary touches with Berber style, the 126 square metre room has a lounge, painted in deep red colour and a spacious terrace. The furniture is a blend between contemporary and Moroccan craftsmanship.
Creamy shades command the most space in the bedroom’s colour palette. The same refined decorative style blending modern elements and Moroccan accents is continuous throughout the suite.
The marble clad bathroom with Bejmat floors offer a separate bath tub and shower area. Both spacious and functional, the beautiful bathroom is a shrine to Moroccan craftsmanship.
