Follow the Twitter account (@FSMarrakech) for the new Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech and you’ll be witness to the intense preparations for the hotel’s debut in mid June. Teambuilding exercises with managers and supervisors, the Director of Finance’s professed goal “to make the hotel the best of the best,” photos of the first homemade bread and pastry hot from the oven. (Psst. The hotel is also organizing a Twitter contest where one lucky follower will win a stay in Marrakech.)
Marrakech is certainly one of the hottest destinations of the moment (check out Jena Tesse Fox’s article in the March issue of Luxury Travel Advisor), and the Four Seasons one of the most anticipated hotel debuts. Just a short walk from the ancient Medina, the hotel is nestled on 40 acres of Moorish-style gardens filled with fountains and quiet courtyards. Architecturally, the hotel was designed as a luxurious, contemporary medina with low-rise accommodations and extensive resort facilities: two clay tennis courts, a full-service gym, a family pool and a separate adults-only pool lined with swanky cabanas equipped with complimentary Internet access, ceiling fans, magazines, and oversized lounge chairs. Each of the 139 guest rooms has a balcony overlooking the historic Menara Gardens or the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
The spa deserves a special mention as we hear it’s downright delicious. Two spa pavilions, one with 15 treatment rooms, the other as a VIP hideaway, offer the ultimate in pampering. Also within the spa complex: traditional hammams, a hair and nails salon, pools and a whirlpool.
Now accepting reservations for arrivals from June 15, 2011.
