La Mamounia

Bab Jdid, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

Since 1923, Morocco's most prestigious hotel has achieved legendary status for its opulence, grandeur, celebrity guest list, and hefty price tag. In 2009 the hotel was magnificently restored and renovated by architect Jacques Garcia and a team of hundreds of master craftsmen. La Mamounia occupies 20 acres of fragrant gardens that once belonged to 18th-century Prince Mamoun and is a glowing example of Moroccan Arab–Andalusian fine arts. It delivers luxury hospitality on a regal scale. A sumptuous underground spa, with Jacuzzi and hammam, is one of the added features of the hotel. If money is no object, then your own private riad for a night will set you back around 80,000 DH. Otherwise, prices start at "only" 5,600 DH for a classic room (breakfast is an additional 350 DH per person).
