Stylish Hotels (Part 1): ROYAL MANSOUR
This month we begin a celebration of some of the finest and most fascinating hotels and boutique hotels on my bucket list.
Designed by 3BIS Architecture Intérieure, the Royal Mansour is situated in Marrakesh, Morocco and is described as “A one-of-a-kind establishment: a story of reinvented glamour”.
The heart of the Marrakesh Palace, offers travellers the unique concept of a medina within a medina. Each area has been designed to intuitively take guests on a sensory journey. Take a step into the secret and sumptuous history of one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.
An exceptional 5 star hotel a few steps away from the famous Jemaa El Fna square. Ideal Location offering Airport Shuttle. A Luxury Hotel. Child Friendly, Amenities include Free Wi-Fi, Restaurant, Bar, Spa, Hot Tub, Indoor & Outdoor Pool, Air-Conditioned, Fitness Centre.
Sensational mosaic work detailing intricate patterns of heritage Arabic and Moroccan flavour.
Plush lounges with rustic shag rugs and linen sheers to filter the sunlight blend well with textured walls in coral tones alongside the pool area.
Bedroom Suites are plush with sumptuous tasseled drapery and intricate beadwork, luxury linens and fresh florals set against detailed walls with delicate plaster work. The rooms and suites have been replaced by luxurious riads, and the corridors by winding alleyways. The Royal Mansour Marrakech is the only hotel establishment in the world to offer this unique concept.
Public areas are vast and theatrical with colonnades of Arabian inspired columns and archways in this glamorous Moroccan style.
Dramatic screens with embellished mother of pearl marquetry and lattice panels compliment the stark use of marble and silks.
If love is in the details then very special attention has been paid to the fabulous finishes and furniture used to create these exquisite dining areas.
Everywhere you look there is something magnificent to behold, it's astounding how the deep layered textures, colours and patterns recreate and celebrate this sensational style of design.

Feel the full strength of the city’s pulse as you enter the doors of the Royal Mansour. Traditional architecture, lush gardens and outstandingly sophisticated riads await you. The design of this luxury hotel in Marrakesh incorporates the elements of an authentic medina, where guests can stroll around and discover sensual delights.
Wall panels fitted with sumptuous wallpapered panels and screens are simply everywhere to be seen. No attention to detail spared.
