Starting in September 2013, there will be a new General Manager at the helm of La Mamounia in Marrakech. The positively opulent hotel has welcomed the crème de la crème of society since it first opened in 1923; a dramatic three-year overhaul completed in 2009 catapulted this palace hotel to the top of the of the increasingly sumptuous hotel scene in Marrakech.
Regal accommodations include 136 rooms, 71 Suites, and three Riads equipped with 3 bedrooms, Moroccan salons, private swimming pool, and outdoor terraces; and the facilities encompass clay tennis courts, four restaurants, five bars, and a magnificent spa.
Pierre Jochem arrives from Singapore where he served as General Manager of the landmark Raffles Hotel as well as the Regional Vice-President Operations Asia Pacific at Raffles Hotels & Resorts. Jochem will replace Didier Picquot as General Manager at La Mamounia. For more information, visit www.mamounia.com
