Everything here is something to experience
A stay at La Mamounia is a visual experience, with plays of light between indoor and outdoor spaces, and beautifully contrasting colours, such as the zellige tilework in Majorelle blue, green and orange. It is also a tactile experience, with the flowing lines of arabesque sculptures, the textured and velvety smooth fabrics, and the gentle warmth of wood, as well as the subtle, enchanting presence of water in the hotel’s fountains and ponds – a beautiful symbol of life.
The hotel also offers delights for the nose, with fragrances of jasmine, orange blossom, cedar and powerful leather. Last but not least, there are delicacies for the palate, such as almond milk and dates, which are served to welcome guests to the hotel in keeping with the Moroccan tradition of hospitality.
A powerful experience for all the senses
Since its beginnings, La Mamounia has embodied all the refinement of Morocco – an Oriental atmosphere comprising noble materials crafted with remarkable ancestral know-how, as well as plays of light and perspective, and a harmonious blend of plant and mineral features, all of which combine to create a powerful sensory experience. All of this is enhanced with unobtrusive modern facilities. A beautiful and outwardly simple presentation. You simply have to experience a stay at La Mamounia in Marrakesh.
