A 10-minute ride from the airport reveals a shimmering, intriguing city that begs to be explored. At the Hotel’s gates, a glorious fountain heralds arrival, and the familiar Four Seasons name signals that this is going to be a memorable stay in Morocco. Inside the lobby, guests are greeted by an enticing view of tree-lined pools and Moorish pavilions, and the warm welcome of the Hotel’s staff.
“Travellers should consider Four Seasons their ‘friend in Morocco’ as they plan a trip to Marrakech,” invites Jean Claude Wietzel, general manager of the new Hotel, who has been carefully assembling a local and international team of experienced staff who share the company’s service-oriented philosophy. “Whether seeking a resort-like location for a family holiday, a romantic hideaway or a home base for doing business, Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech will be the gateway for a meaningful experience in Morocco.”
Inspired by the nearby Medina, Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech offers a modern take on traditional Moorish architecture. Rose-hued pavilions with hand-carved details are surrounded by a lush landscape of swimming and reflecting pools, gardens, pathways and fountains. The low-rise buildings allow for stunning views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and Menara Gardens beyond the Hotel’s towering palms.
Families at Four Seasons
Boasting the city’s only fully supervised facility for children, Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech is the ideal choice for families. The Kids For All Seasons program is located next to the family pool, so that parents can see their children splashing about in the wading pool or playing games. For older children, the fully wired Young Adult Centre allows younger guests to stay connected to friends back home while they make new ones in the games room and movie theatre.
An Oasis for Couples
Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech is also a destination for romance, with plenty of private spaces and experiences to share. Every room and suite has its own balcony or terrace perfect for leisurely breakfasts or dining à deux, and the adults-only pool promises a relaxing day in the sun. At the Spa, a separate couples’ pavilion features its own entrance and a series of private suites, opening the possibilities for shared journeys of relaxation and renewal.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech
Two Spa pavilions sit among gardens filled with birdsong and perfumed by exotic flora. The main pavilion offers 15 treatment rooms for massages, facials and body treatments, plus a salon and whirlpool. In the second building – reached by its own discreet entrance – couples and those embarking on more extensive spa journeys will find two luxurious spa suites, as well as a modern interpretation of the traditional hammam.
The property also features tennis courts and fitness facilities, and the Hotel will provide maps of jogging routes within its walls or through the symmetrical orchards of olive, cypress and fruit trees in the Menara Gardens.
Dining Options Abound
The dining experience at Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech begins at the signature Bleu d’Orange, where guests will be enveloped in the scents of southern France in a stylish room and outdoor terrace accented with Moroccan zelige tiling. French-born and -trained Executive Chef Christophe Gillino is creating a distinctly Provençale menu that promises a light touch and will feature fresh ingredients from the region.
Against a backdrop of mountains as the sun sets over the Menara Gardens, Zest at Bleu d’Orange comes to life for an evening of open-air cocktails and jazz on the rooftop.
Cuisine du Sud is the focus at Solano, where specialties from Morocco, Andalusia and Sicily come together. Drawn in by the heavenly aromas of fresh bread baking in the ovens, guests will be able to select antipasti and enjoy an extensive menu, either indoors or out.
Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech will also feature Inara Bar and Lounge, perfect for lunch, afternoon tea and drinks, and Azzera Grill, a poolside restaurant specialising in grilled meats and fish.
Room for Everyone
Surrounding the Hotel’s central area – which includes pools, restaurants and the Spa – the pavilions of guest rooms and suites form a village connected by arcades, walkways and courtyards, evoking a contemporary medina filled with riads. Each of the 140 guest rooms and suites, which are among the largest in the city, has its own spacious balcony or terrace with mountain and garden views. Families and friends travelling together will also appreciate being able to connect two rooms via a private foyer.
Known as the Red City, Marrakech is the most important of Morocco’s imperial cities, situated in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, at the edge of the Sahara, and at the centre of the region’s economic and cultural life. It’s a relaxed city with an abundance of fig, pomegranate and olive trees that shade its friendly people and flavour its delicious cuisine.
Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech is ideally located in the central part of the city, right across from the Menara Gardens and an easy stroll from the Medina. One's journey into the heart of Morocco might begin at the Hotel’s own Culture Centre, where arts and crafts displays are the setting for classes on cuisine, culture, nature and history.
At the nearby souks, the Hotel’s multi-lingual concierge team can direct guests to the best spots for fine leather goods, brass lamps, silk slippers, handwoven carpets and fragrant spices. Food lovers may also enjoy a visit to a local baker, where Moroccans bring their dough to be baked in a communal clay oven and then retrieve it in time for the evening meal.
Four Seasons can also arrange visits to important sites such as the 12th-century Koutubia Mosque and the Palais Bahia (“palace of the favourite”), excursions to the ski resort of Oukaimden or the beaches at Essaouira, or even a caravan into the Saharan Desert.
