From the moment we arrived at the hotel and four porters opened the double doors we knew this place was going to be fabulous. Our guest relations representative Salah was a delight, we had booked a gourmet package over three days and had to arrange an itinerary to fit it all in. Our package included two evening meals one in the moroccan restaurant the other in the Italian. A Moroccan tea ritual where we were taught how to make mint tea with green tea. A hammam and a massage. A guided tour of Marrakech with a guide who has shown prime ministers and presidents around ( and apparently Brad Pitt). But the best bit was a two hour cookery lesson with the Michelin starred French chef and then we ate lunch at the restaurant and ate the food he showed us how to cook.
The hotel itself was beautiful. The gardens are fabulous and very relaxing and quiet considering the hotel is so near all the hustle and bustle. The level of service is fantastic. Our room was sumptuous and felt very authentic with tiled Walls. The music in the Italian bar and the Churchill bar was great. The ambience in the hotel at all times was just right. The spa and indoor pool is absolutely fabulous. The outside pool is vast. We were never "spa people" but as this package came with the hammam and massage we went with the flow. I can honestly say that both myself and my husband are now converts.
This hotel is a true world class five star hotel. It's like the Dorchester but with better service.
This is an expensive hotel but I've stayed in hotels which are similar in cost and not had as good an experience as here. So if you're looking for a hotel in an interesting location with fabulous food excellent service and great facilities. This is the place.
