With accommodation made ​​up exclusively of villas and suites, Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech promises a new luxury experience, combining comfort and space, in total privacy. Each villa is built in the Moroccan style around a private pool in a lush garden with fig, apricot and other fruit trees. The interior decor is a tribute to the fascinating culture and Berber tradition as depicted by traditional tadelakt motifs, mouth-blown vases and handwoven wool rugs. 

Overlooking the resort, the nine suites offer spectacular views over the garden, with its 100,000 roses and centuries-old olive trees. In the distance, the Atlas Mountains form a romantic and soothing setting to contemplate from the terrace.

For travellers looking to totally switch off, the Infinity Pool Suite, adjacent to the Spa, promises a rejuvenating experience for body and mind, with its 18-metre long heated pool a particular draw.


Rustic yet sophisticated, the design of Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech was undertaken by the French duo Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier. With its Berber and Andalusian-Arabic influences, the feel is of relaxed luxury for the cosmopolitan traveller. Interior and exterior spaces co-exist and the focus is on essential materials rather than ostentatious affectations, with a particular emphasis placed on light.

Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech is set amid lush, lavish gardens surrounded by a walkway that allows guests to fully appreciate their charms. An avenue lined with palm trees provides a spectacular entrance, referencing the traditional Moroccan palm groves, while small mounds recall the dunes of the South Moroccan desert. Scattered among the palm trees, pink bougainvillea are cut into Japanese shapes in a nod to the group's Asian origins.

No less than 100,000 different coloured roses of 30 different varieties adorn the garden, and each villa has a rose colour of its own. The gardens are home to orange trees, almond trees and many fragrant plants such as jasmine, rose geranium and night-blooming cestrum, so named because at night, its perfume is particularly pronounced, and can be recognised from up to 20 metres away. At nightfall, illuminated by countless candles and lanterns scattered throughout the property, the gardens hold a particular magic as the flowers and plants release their essences.

The garden’s centuries-old olive trees (some of which are up to 500 years old) are now yielding a promising crops for olive oil. Cactus and prickly pear, traditionally used as natural fences in mountain villages, also dot the area, and their fruits can be enjoyed in ice-cream in the restaurant, while the oil is incorporated into traditional rituals at The Spa.
