When the Ritz-Carlton opens in Rabat in December 2014, the urban resort will up the luxury quotient in Morocco’s bustling capital city. Currently under construction, the Ritz-Carlton Rabat is owned by the Sienna Investment Group. This is the third property under development in North Africa that will be managed by the luxury brand, with other Ritz-Carlton resorts slated for Tunis (near the World Heritage Site of Carthage) and Morocco’s Mediterranean coast near Tangiers.
Located 10 minutes by car from the Rabat city center, the Ritz-Carlton will be located on The Royal Golf of Dar Es Salam, a prestigious golf estate designed by Robert Trent Jones some 40 years ago. The Ritz-Carlton Rabat will have 120 guest rooms and 15 swanky villas. Stay tuned for more details.
