checking in_

 

Prior to arriving at the Four Seasons in Marrakech I had stayed in the old city in the Medina in a Riad. The Four Seasons is in a newer area of the city and is not within walls the way the old city is.

An elegant oasis away from the hustle and bustle that Marrakech promises, you walk into Moorish gardens, vibrantly draped rooms, and a sprawling oasis that is sure to treat even the most discerning traveler.

The Hotel:

Stunning grounds

The hotel sits on a massive 40 acres of Moorish gardens. A sanctuary away from the old city, the hotel offers you a place to relax, unwind and still soak in the Moroccan culture.

When you arrive to the hotel, you have to drive through a security checkpoint (to keep guests safe and for privacy) and then you arrive up on the circle driveway. This is where your luxurious experience awaits. From the moment the staff open your door on arrival until they send you off, your experience is going to be one for the books.

Offering 139 rooms to its visitors, any room you select is sure to leave you speechless. From rooms with views of Atlas Mountain to Pavilion Suites with private pools – this is going to be your new favorite hotel.

The Room:

During my stay I stayed in an Upper Pavilion Room – which is not attached to the main building of the resort, but instead frames the gardens and you could slightly see the pool. For me it was my own peaceful place. Located on the second floor, there was about 12 steps to walk up to get to the room. When you open the door you can see there is a lot of natural light shining into the room.

The room in total was about 538 square feet equipped with a king size bed, marble bathroom, working area, lounge, spacious closet area with drawers, 2 balconies: one with 2 loungers and the other with a nook and table with chairs, a TV, coffee maker, and a minibar.

Dining:

The hotel has two restaurants: Quattro and Azzera and Inara Lounge. Outside of the three dining establishments, you can also order room service 24 hours a day.

During my stay I ate lunch at Azzera, Dinner at Inara, and ordered room service for dinner one evening. All of the food at the resort was incredible. If I had to pick a favorite I would go with the couscous from Inara.

Overall:

I love my stay! The hotel is extremely gorgeous and equally cozy. I stayed here for 2 nights after staying in the Medina and my experience was a complete 360. While I will recommend staying in the Medina for at least 1 night to experience everything in there, I will say that you should also experience the new city and the luxuries that they offer here at the Four Seasons Marrakech.

  1. This looks absolutely incredible. I have traveled to the middle east a couple times; Jordan, Oman, UAE, Kuwait, and Qatar. I have visited many hotels, but never had the luxury of fully enjoying them; I really need to get back!

  5. Oh the luxury!

    As I read this I was sitting in my apartment in Yangon, listening to street dogs howling downstairs whilst my air conditioner steadily dripped. I think I audibly sighed.

    I am yet to go to Marrakech, but I think that I would also stay out of the city centre so that I could have an oasis away from the hustle and bustle. Great photos, the food looks sensational.

    And my, that transport… Little bit Sex And The City.

  6. I don’t even know where to start. I am not surprised that this is great since it is the 4 seasons. I love the architecture and decor in the room and around the hotel. Would love to take a dip in one of the pools. The treats also looked good.

  8. Now this, THIS, is a hotel. I’ve never seen a more luxurious place to stay. I love that they have car service. That’s very incredible! Marrakech is on my list for 2018, I’m usually more of a budget traveler, but maybe I’d be able to swing this for a night or two – especially if I go for my birthday!

  9. The Four Seasons looks stunning. I’d have been so tempted to take a dip in that amazing infinity style fountain lol. All of the food looks incredible! What was in those brightly coloured dumpling things on the welcome tray?
