Legatto Insider: The Royal Mansour Marrakech

A simply unique experience that feels like being the personally invited guest of the king himself

The Royal Mansour personally anointed by the King of Morocco, no expenses have been spared in creating a an exquisitely palatial environment close  to the courtly sumptuousness enjoyed by the royals. The old city walls fortifying the palace draws your curiosity in as your eyes flicker around it’s ancient structure. Then a massive wood-sculpted bronze gate opens up inviting you to your first glimpse of what’s to come leaving you to marvel at the extraordinary.
The interior blue print is similar to that of the old Moroccan city, popularized in ancient tales with winding paths, lily ponds and fountains specially curved to bring the ancient tales to life. The decor and furnishing show incredible attention to detail, the work of an army of Moroccan craftsmen, specialist in what they do best. There are no rooms as such, each guest has their own 3 storey riad (residence), with salons, bedrooms and rooftop terrace and plunge pool surrounding a courtyard fountain. A private butler is on call of duty, day or night to serve your every need.
The fine dining experience is overseen by Chef Yannick Alleno decorated in 3 Michelin stars. There are 2 gastronomic restaurants, La Grande Table Francaise and it’s wonderful sister, La Grande Table Marocaine, each showcasing a collection of classical and local menus of the finest cuisines. Al fresco dining experience is on offer at La Table while there is also Le Piano Bar and cigar lounge. The delights of Marrakech are a tempting prospect to enjoy, but for those seeking solace then spend the day or night in the fabulous Royal Mansour Spa and specifically the traditional hammam, a paradise lost.
