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 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.
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.
The TV has movies for rent, there is 24 hour room service (and it does not disappoint),
- 2 resort sized swimming pools
- 3,400+ square foot gym
- 24 hour room service
- Business center
- Private or group yoga
- 2 tennis courts
- Spa with 15 treatment rooms
- 24 hour concierge
- Car service
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.
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.
