La Mamounia, Marrakech

"Rather monolithic smart hotel of Winston fame"

"It is the most beautiful place in the world," wrote British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, urging him to come to Marrakech, at the close of World War II's Casablanca Conference, 1943.

Opened in 1923 and located in the very heart of Marrakech,, La Mamounia, is set amid idyllic gardens that are almost three hundred years old and surrounded by the city's 12th-century ochre-colored ramparts.

For 80 years, La Mamounia, has emphasized the great traditions of Moroccan, hospitality. We are considered a classic example of the great age of grand hotels of the 1930's, a unique blend of Art Deco and Moorish design.

Conceived in 1922 with one hundred rooms, La Mamounia, was enlarged in 1946, 1950 and 1953. In 1986 we undertook a massive, nine-month re-creation, bringing us to today's level of magnificence. In 2000 and 2001, every guest room was updated and redesigned - combining a true Moroccan, ambiance with every 21st-century convenience.

La Mamounia's, name derives from our gardens, known three centuries ago as "Arset el Mamoun," named for Prince Moulay Mamoun, son of Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah, ruler of Marrakech, in the 18th century.

Here in the heart of this Imperial city, royalty, connoisseurs and celebrities gather at the legend called "La Mamounia" to relax in an atmosphere that combines history with enchantment and luxury.
