HM King Mohammed VI has spared no expense to create a new icon of Moroccan elegance and establish the locale as one if the world's premier luxury travel destinations. The hotel consists of 53 riads, Moroccan-style dwellings lavishly furnished with silks and brocades, ornate tiles, handcrafted wood and antique furniture and interior gardens, ranging in size from 1,400-sq.-ft. to a palatial 21,520-sq.-ft.
They feature roof terraces (above) with sun beds and private pools provide stunning views of Marrakech or the Atlas mountains. Built into the ancient wall of Marrakech, the resort recreates an historical medina and is punctuated with Andalusian courtyards, winding alleyways, and spectacular water displays and fountains. In addition to the riads, the eight-acre property will feature three restaurants and a 26,900 sq.-ft. spa located in its own glazed pavilion surrounded by a moat with a fitness center, treatment rooms, and an indoor pool.
