Another month, another piece of luxury hotel news out of Marrakech. Morocco’s most exciting hotel destination has no shortage of luxury hotels (hello, Mandarin Oriental!) and now India’s Park Hotels has announced its first venture outside of India. The hotel group has made a name for itself with a collection of luxury boutique hotels in major cities and leisure destinations in India—New Delhi, Goa, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bangalore and beyond.
Now The Park Hotels has announced a new management contract for the Sahara Palace Marrakech, a luxury hotel situated in the Palmeraie area of the city, overlooking the Atlas Mountains. The estate is comprised of more than 130 acres of landscaped gardens, pools, and olive groves. And the property design blends Moroccan and Indian themes.
There are 89 guest rooms, 15 suites, and four exclusive Riads—all with panoramic views. We hear that the Riads are some of the most over-the-top luxury accommodation in Marrakech; billed as mini “hotels,” each Riad has 36 rooms and private outdoor space. Four restaurants, two bars, a spa, and a “Yoga Temple” round out the luxurious facilities.
