The Oberoi group of hotels have constantly astounded us with the hotels they debut, and it looks like they’ll be ending the year on a high note with the opening of the new Oberoi Marrakech in Morroco this December. As the final touches commence to get the property ready by December 1 (which also happens to be the day it opens the doors to the public) here’s all we know about the upcoming luxury resort.
The resort, spread across 28 acres, welcomes you with a splendid view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Less than half an hour from the ancient walled city, the Oberoi Marrakech takes inspiration from traditional Moroccan architecture, and its main courtyard reinterprets the famous 14th-century Medersa Ben Youssef madrasa. Dotted with citrus orchards and olive groves, you can pick from 84 rooms, suites, and villas out of which 76 house private pools and gardens.
The dining space offers local Moroccan fare as well as international cuisines at the hotel’s three restaurants. One can enjoy cocktail hour at the terrace bar, offering stunning views of elaborate gardens and the Atlas range. A stay at Marrakech would be incomplete without spa treatments; at the hotel, the spa is located on the natural water body. Authentic Moroccan and Ayurvedic treatments are available, and there’s an indoor pool, a hammam, and herbal therapies. Ideal for families, its children’s activity centre means extra alone time for the adults. With Morocco already a hot destination among tourists and travellers, Oberoi’s new luxury hotel couldn’t have come at a better time.
