Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca, a new oceanside hotel in Morocco’s largest city, is celebrating its grand opening with its first guests.
The 186-room Hotel cascades down toward the Atlantic, providing a luxurious retreat inspired by ocean waves and kissed by cool breezes.
Most guest rooms and suites have balconies to take in the fresh sea air, and the hotel’s signature restaurant and lobby lounge face the ocean.
“With the city centre and financial district just ten minutes away, it’s hard to imagine that this breezy, resort-like Hotel is in the middle of such a busy urban metropolis,” said general manager Olivier Thomas, who leads a team of 325 carefully-selected staff who are excited to welcome the first guests.
“For business travellers, it’s the perfect home base in the city, and for those on holiday, it’s truly the best of both worlds.”
Located in the Anfa neighbourhood of Casablanca, the city’s most upscale residential district, the Hotel’s restaurants and bars create a lively atmosphere for gatherings with friends, family and colleagues.
Executive chef Thierry Papillier’s culinary roots are showcased in Bleu, a contemporary French brasserie featuring a unique elliptical open kitchen and terrace seating that allows guests to listen to the sea as they savour its bounty.
Bleu Bar is adjacent to the restaurant, and guests may also choose Mint, an inviting lobby lounge offering cocktails and an all-day menu, that’s also the ideal place to indulge in executive pastry chef Thierry Metee’s delights during daily afternoon tea.
Another restaurant and lounge, the poolside Latitude 33, will open next spring.
