The imposing ochre colored, 18 meter long, 10 meter high and 800 year old ramparts of Marrakech’s Medina bear witness to the long history of this ancestral city. The royal capital on several occasions, Marrakech acquired its cultural wealth over many centuries and under several sovereigns, especially those of the Almoravides dynasty, who invested part of their fortune to embellish it even more.
The El Badi Palace, the Saadian tombs, the Bahia Palace and the world famous Koutoubia mosque, are all important sites for history lovers. Visitors might however, prefer to lose themselves in the colorful souks with their aromas of spices, or enjoy the day or night street attractions at the Place Jemaa el Fna. And if you’re looking for fresh air and serenity, there are the Majorelle and the Menara gardens.
These areas filled with orchards and olive trees and very popular with the local inhabitants were once reserved for sultans and vizirs. Surrounded by a mud brick enclosure, the Menara has a large irrigation pool and a superb green tile pavilion. This veritable haven of greenery is, along with the Koutoubia, one of the symbols of Marrakech.
A modern and luxurious Medina
The Four Seasons Marrakech is the first Moroccan member of the prestigious Four Seasons hotel group. Located inside a vast 16 hectare property with palm and olive trees and a variety of flowers, the small pink and ochre Moroccan style buildings form a luxurious contemporary medina.
These mini riads, separated by courtyards and fountains, contain 139 luxurious rooms and suites andoffer guests a magnificent view of the Menara gardens and the snow capped High Atlas Mountains from their terraces.
These chic and comfortable accommodations are decorated in the same modern style with a number of Moroccan touches. They all combine traditional furniture with the latest technological equipment and soft, deep quilts.
We find the same sober and luminous atmosphere in the marble and zellige bathrooms. An adult and a children’s swimming pool are located in the middle of lush greenery, and the huge 2000 square meter spa includes a pavilion reserved exclusively for couples. In this peaceful space, forbidden to children, guests can experience a massage with argan oil, a cocooning treatment for the hands and the feet, or simply a relaxing hammam.
There are several restaurants in this timeless oasisdesigned to please even the most demanding gourmets. Guests can order a light lunch at any time of day at the Azzera Grill located at the edge of the swimming pool, or at theInara Bar and Lounge, the bar-library in the lobby.
In the new Bleu d’Orange pavilion, Italian Chef Francesco Montano proposes an updated version of Italian cuisine using local and seasonal ingredients. With its beige and chocolate tones, its refined velvet and satin and its benches around the fireplace, the Bleu D’Orange offers guests a warm and intimate ambiance. And for those who prefer to see and be seen, there’s the very trendy Zest at Bleu d’Orange located on the roof with a spectacular view of the High Atlas Mountains, and the sun setting over the Menara gardens.
The hotel proposes a “Kids for All Seasons” facility for children from 4 to 12 years of age, and for youngsters between 12 and 17, there are billiard tables, table footballl, video games, computers, ping pong tables and a movie theatre.
