Royal Mansour Marrakech Offering New Retreats at its Spa

With Morocco having reopened its borders on February 7, Royal Mansour Marrakech is welcoming international travelers again. Owned by the King of Morocco, the hotel offers easy access to the region’s top attractions, including Majorelle Gardens, Jemaa el-Fnaa and the Atlas Mountains and has recently unveiled multi-day wellness retreats at its three-story, 27,000-square-foot Royal Mansour Spa.

Available as three-, five-, seven- or 14-day retreats, guests can choose between the "Rebalance," "Rejuvenation" and "Immunity Boost" programs—with the goal of improving both mental and physical health. Each program is customizable and offers a 360-degree approach with treatments, nutrition (eating healthy but well at the property’s three restaurants led by Michelin-starred chefs), and activities including culinary masterclasses and Pilates.

Besides the full-board retreats, the property has also built and designated a new artist’s studio, Atelier d’Artiste, housed in a glass-paneled greenhouse, to host art therapy sessions including painting, modeling, pottery and calligraphy. Each of these sessions begins with a guided meditation.

The signature treatment is the hammam. Essential to the authentic Moroccan spa experience, the hammam begins in a humid room on a slab of heated marble with a black soap scrub. This ritual, rich in symbolism is said to soothe, regenerate and reinvigorate the soul. Scrubbed and massaged, cleansed and purified, the skin regains radiance and softness, and is ready to benefit from further treatments. Personalized hammam treatments represent a return to Morocco’s roots. For instance, clay for the energizing wrap comes from the Atlas Mountains; roses from the Kalaast Megouna are used in the regenerating wrap; and saffron is a key ingredient in the glow wrap.

Royal Mansour Le Jardin

Last year, Royal Mansour debuted an elevated private dining space, located 14 feet above the property’s expanded gardens. Titled The Nest, the open-air dining space spanning 430 square feet is an extension of Le Jardin, featuring a Mediterranean and Asian-fusion menu by Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno. The Nest offers an intimate setting for up to eight guests, ideal for group dinners or micro-weddings, nestled within the lemon and palm trees with views over Marrakech and the Koutoubia Mosque’s Atlas tower. Each dining experience is tailor-made as the team works with guests to finalize curated playlists, floral arrangements and exclusive menus.

Royal Mansour’s dining destinations flourish under two Michelin-starred chefs. Sesamo, an Italian dining concept orchestrated by Chef Massimiliano Alajmo, debuted in December 2019. The next stop is La Grande Table Marocaine by Parisian chef Yannick Alléno.
