Royal Mansour Marrakech Named the ‘Gold Standard’ of Luxury Hotels by The Telegraph

Projects, Luxury

The Telegraph proclaims the Royal Mansour, “The gold standard of luxury hotels in Marrakech, the Mansour was commissioned by King Mohammed VI, who often hosts his guests in its 53 private riads, which are situated in almost four hectares of fragrant Moorish gardens.”

The recently completed Royal Mansour Marrakech Hotel by OBM International is the quintessential luxury resort in the region. Designed for hosting royalty and heads of state from around the world, the Royal Mansour provides guests with an unforgettable experience from arrival to departure.

Featuring the perfect balance between traditional and opulent Moroccan architecture, the Royal Mansour offers history, comfort, and exclusivity to its guests. Enclosed within the medina and protected from view by the city walls, the Royal Mansour is as precious and mysterious as the city itself, with its beauty gradually revealed in layers. This voyage begins with a sweeping private avenue, lined with centenarian olive trees leading to the hotel’s imposing bronze gates. Beyond the gates is the breathtaking tiled portico with a sunken fountain that ebbs and flows. The Royal Mansour’s 53 private rooms are built around a central atrium and each contains a private roof terrace, solarium, fireplace, and dining room with views over the medina.

The Telegraph rated the Royal Mansour Marrakech overall 9/10 and rated its style and character 9/10 and its rooms and room architecture a perfect 10/10. “A magnificent hotel conceived as a mini-medina with 53 two-storey villas set in manicured gardens dotted with lily ponds and fountains. Privacy is at a premium here, where even staff scurry between the salon, pool, and private patio via a network of subterranean passages. While above the ground, opulence is the name of the game,” The Telegraph Travel Destinations article quotes.

OBMI was responsible for the master planning, project programming, and architecture for the 2.2-hectare property featuring 41,00 square meters of built area including 53 Riad Suites, restaurants and bars, a world-class spa, pools and Moroccan gardens, and meeting and banquet facilities.
