A truly unique luxury escape, the Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech is set among 20 hectares of landscaped gardens and a series of serene ponds as a centrepiece, with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains providing a spectacular backdrop. Rustic yet sophisticated, the resorts stunning design was undertaken by the French duo Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier. With its Berber and Arab-Andalusian influences, the feel is of relaxed luxury for the cosmopolitan traveller. Interior and exterior spaces co-exist, and the focus is on essential materials rather than ostentatious affectations, with a particular emphasis placed on light.

Looking out, guests will get lost in the shades of the desert and its rocks by way of the resort’s archetypal motifs.
