The 200-room hotel, set to open in 2019, will be located in La Marina Morocco, a coastal mixed-use development located between Rabat and the ancient city of Salé.
“We are extremely excited to be entering a destination as beautiful and culturally rich as Morocco, and more specifically the diplomatic and business hub that is the country’s capital,” said Jennifer Fox, president, FRHI International and Fairmont Brand.
“With its remarkable architecture, historic sites and emerging culinary scene, it’s a hidden travel gem that captures the spirit of the country unlike any other in Morocco.”
Fairmont La Marina Rabat-Salé will be set in a prime location on the Bouregreg river-mouth which opens onto the marina, river and ocean.
Close to key heritage sites in Rabat such as Kasbat Oudayas and Tour Hassan as well as being close to the Hassan district, the project offers uninterrupted views over the Atlantic Ocean from the north and Bouregreg River and The Mausoleum of Mohammed V from the south.
The hotel will have 200 rooms and approximately 90 Fairmont private residences, soon to be available for purchase.
Ample meeting space and a range of restaurants including an all-day dining concept, lobby lounge and bar, specialty restaurant and pool bar and grill which will boost the city’s already vast choice of culinary options.
For relaxation Fairmont La Marina Rabat-Salé will include a Fairmont Spa and fitness facilities.
