Morocco has welcomed the arrival of a significant new hotel with the opening of Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech, following a US$100 million redevelopment.
The funds were invested by Alajial Assets Company, a subsidiary of Al Ajial Holding that represents Kuwait Investment Authority in the Kingdom of Morocco.
Opening to the public for the first time on this week, the spectacular five-star hotel is a triumphant oasis, featuring 503 rooms and suites.
Also on offer are six restaurants and bars, a two-floor Ô de Rose spa and well-being centre by Cinq Mondes, four swimming pools including one for little travellers, a kids’ club, and exceptional events facilities including direct access to the Palais des Congrès Marrakech.
Already confirmed as the host venue for several major global events including COP22 and the Festival International de Film de Marrakech, Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech is rapidly establishing itself as a new global icon.
Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech has reopened under the management of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts after completing an extensive renovation and expansion programme – making it the Swiss hospitality company’s third property in Morocco.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has already one hotel in Casablanca and one in Tangier.
The 503 guestrooms and suites – all featuring private balconies – include family, business and executive rooms, 108 interconnecting rooms, and additional suites housed in a newly built wing.
Unique architectural details draw you in as you explore the oasis, including a refreshing arrival featuring a promenade that welcomes travellers with cool tranquil water features, 1,001 recessed candles, and elements of nature, wood, fire and copper all blended to create an extraordinary welcome.
Throughout their stay, guests will enjoy the tranquillity of the vibrant gardens lush with bougainvillea, palm and olive trees.
This comprehensive array of impeccable leisure facilities is matched by a truly world-class business, events and exhibition offering.
The hotel is directly connected to Morocco’s largest convention centre, the exceptional Palais des Congrès, both physically via a dedicated entrance, and operationally thanks to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ management of the renowned venue.
It boasts a flexible function space of 5,600m2, including exhibition floor space of 2,700m2, the 1,700 m2 Royal Ballroom, two auditoriums with seating for up to 1,489 guests, 20 meeting rooms and outdoor event areas.
