Book a suite at La mamounia while in marrakech
You booked a private tour around Morocco and looking for somewhere romantic to pamper yourself for a few days and shed off the sand of the Sahara? There are hardly more romantic surroundings in Marrakech than these gardens when the afternoon turns to dusk, right here, among the hundreds of well- manicured olive, lemon, pine and orange trees. In a way, arriving here is like you had suddenly been aspirated from the white noise of the surrounding medina and its traffic madness and transported into an oasis without ever leaving the city.
Jemaa El Fna square is merely a few stone’s throws away and yet, one can’t hear a thing, if it isn’t the sparrows chirping on. Before the Second World War, Europeans and Americans were bringing their furniture for their long stays and each of them refurbished the apartments according to their taste and habits. Winston Churchill had established his winter quarters at the hotel. After the war, it hosted artists, men of state and actors alike: Sharon Stone, Tom Cruise, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rolling Stones and Alfred Hitchcock. Throughout the years, the hotel was never able to accommodate all the customers who desired to lodge here. A multi million restoration in 2009 increased the capacity to 210 rooms and suites. More recently it has revamped itself during the pandemic. Here’s why you should stay there.
