Four Seasons Marrakech | Relax And Unwind In An Oasis Of Luxury
At Four Seasons Marrakech, luxury is felt with every sense from the very first moment
If I had to describe Marrakech with one word, this one would be “magic”. It says it all, or at least a lot. The magic of the urban landscape with the palm trees and snowy atlas as a backdrop, the magic of getting lost through the red city’s tiny alleys, the magic of wandering across the souks while witnessing the most beautiful craftworks, the magic of al fresco dining in a typical riad’s courtyard, the magic of admiring the city’s architecture, the magic of witnessing one of the most wonderful sunsets in UNESCO’s world heritage Plza Jmaa El-Fna, while the square’s ecstatic vibe just rises with the snake charmers, Berber musicians and storytellers…And he list just goes on. Only who has had the change to visit this former imperial city, truly knows how inspiring is to infuse in the city’s charm.
Only a 10-minute drive away from the famous Medina’s red ramparts, across historic Menara Gardens and within the chic neighborhood of “Hivernage” we find Four Seasons Marrakech -an oasis providing calm and comfort within an utterly luxurious atmosphere. The hotel brings the perfect balance to relax and reconnect with oneself after the absolute thrilling experience of exploring the old city’s streets. Luxury is felt with every sense from the very first moment: a singularly elegant wave of perfume embraces you upon arrival, along a gentle service, and within a context where every decorative detail has been though-out. A welcome that just sets what’s going to be a remarkable experience to cater the most discerning clients.
The resort’s architectural style is reminiscent of Morocco’s traditional architectural heritage, while conveying a contemporary design language. The two main buildings evoke a Moorish Palace whereas the 139 rooms, set in independent terra-cotta-colored pavilions, are reached via arcades, courtyards and stairways employing the same structure as the typical riads. The whole complex is nestled in 40 acres of picturesque gardens, dotted with palm and olive trees, fountains and floating pavilions that provide a striking atmosphere -a place that invites you to slow down while walking through it. Yet being in an exotic-inspired world, Four Seasons Marrakech’s style diverges in a duality of two worlds, finding the perfect balance to please every sense of taste.
The rooms at Four Seasons Marrakech are something beyond expectations. Whether you are in a romantic escape or a family holiday, the rooms provide the perfect setting to feel at ease after a busy day of sightseeing. The interiors have been designed following the overall hotel style, catering classical luxury tastes, with a local touch and still providing a contemporary experience: they include all the technology and amenities to meet your comfort. Furthermore, the rooms also have a private balcony with astonishing views of the Atlas Mountains or the surrounding lush gardens. Just imagine yourself sipping a cup of Moroccan tea in such place, worthy of “One Thousand and One Nights”.
The hotel counts with three dining options, each one providing flawless meals and experiences depending on the day time. All led by executive chef Thierry Papillier, restaurant Quattro serves an amazing international Breakfast buffet while in the evening, you may indulge in Italian cuisine in an elegant setting. Innara Lounge is an extension of the hotel’s lobby and offers Moroccan-inspired specialties with Turkish and Lebanese influences -the place to be at sunset time. Azzera is a pool-side grill restaurant featuring freshly grilled meat and fish, club sandwiches, salads and ice creams. Azzera is by itself a little paradise, where one can enjoy an alfresco lunch and delight in refreshing cocktails in a terrace that is overlooking the beautiful emerald-colored adult pool.
The spa is a sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of the red city. A traditional Moroccan experience which brings the pleasure of doing nothing but connecting with your inner being. The options are wide: let go the weight of your thoughts and unwind in the heat of a traditional hamman, or pamper in one of their signature massages and beauty rituals richly infused with local ingredients like eucalyptus, saffron, rose, olive, orange, argan oil and ghassoul clay. Couples and honeymooners may enjoy a private Spa Pavilion in separate treatment area which is connected to the peaceful gardens.
Whether in a family holiday or a romantic escape, Four Seasons Marrakech is the perfect place to discover the magic of this beautiful city.
