the Mamounia is closed for renovation. Not expected to open for another year. Only the casino is open. No idea where its clientele relocated

la mamamounia is one of the most luxourious hotels worldwide,it's pretty expensive yet worth it.at the moment it's closed for renovation.normally due to open in april but personnaly i asked one of the construction resonsibles and confirmed to me that it might be ready before the end of this year.

> as for its guests they went to other hotels with the equivalent quality of services such as amanjena (more expensive) and other luxurious riads .

Just received the following from the UK press office...

"La Mamounia closed in June 2006 for extensive renovations and it is not due

to re-open until the end of 2007 or indeed early 2008. Therefore neither

the hotel nor the casino will be open during your forthcoming trip to

Marrakech in February. I am sorry that we will not be able to assist on

this occasion."

Looks like it won't be open for some time!

I was in Marrakech last week and our Tour guide told us that the Mamounia was closed by the King (he owns it) as soon as he came back from Dubai! He wants a hotel that is as prestigious as the Dubai hotels and will only let it open once it is finished to his likings - this is forecast to be 2008, but given Morroccan time keeping - I'd be surprised!

By all accounts it was and will be a very smart (and expensive) place and was also Winston Chuchill's most favoured hotel in the world.

Most of the top class hotels seem to be being built in the Palmeraie which is a fair way out of town.

I stayed at a new hotel called Les Borjs de la Kasbah (in the Kasbah) which is very smart and I fully recommend it.

The Casino is still open at La Mam.
