Next stop on my Marrakech hit list was Royal Mansour – now this is luxe plus! Designed like a small medina, this collection of elegant terracotta-coloured riads really wows. Luxurious interiors and superlative service with butlers on tap will help make this hotel one of your favourites too. (Murad our butler, made sure every whim was attended to with expert ease thank you very much!).
Royal Mansour also boasts one of the world’s best spa experiences featuring white and light, intricate lattice interiors where you can also experience a traditional hammam.
Sealing the deal is the resort’s location… nearby the Jamaa El Fna Square and right across the road from the famous La Mamounia, you’ll feel centre stage without the accompanying madness.
This is super-private riad luxury, built at the behest of Morocco’s King Mohammed VI and only the best Moroccan artisans were used to craft the beautiful zelij (the geometric mosaic tiling that distinguishes Marrakech’s important historic sites). Needless to say, all of Royal Mansour’s interiors are gorgeous and with your own glittering roof-top plunge pool to loll besides, you may never want to leave!
It might not be for everyone, as these riads are all three stories, it can get tiresome running up and down stairs to open champagne and chocolates that are discreetly placed throughout your riad, but then that’s what Murad is for!
