The high-end hotel sits on 28-acres of lush gardens and has 76 rooms.
Rabat – Four years on from the initial announcement in 2015, Indian hotel chain Oberoi has announced that it will be opening its long-awaited luxury hotel in Marrakech in December.
The luxurious hotel, which is surrounded by 28-acres of gardens, combines Indian influences with traditional Moroccan style. It has 84 rooms, suites, and villas, 76 of which include swimming pools and private gardens.
The hotel, which is located 20 minutes from Jemaa El Fna, also has three restaurants offering a menu of international and Moroccan specialties, as well as a kids club and a wellness area.
As an homage to the historical city in which the hotel resides, the courtyard of the hotel’s main building is influenced by the renowned Ben Youssef Madrasa, a Koranic school of Marrakech built in the early fourteenth century.
Fabien Gastinel, general manager of The Oberoi in Marrakech, released a statement teasing the luxury of the new hotel.
“Every facility at The Oberoi is being planned to create a flawless experience for our guests. From the luxurious rooms to the dining options; all aspects of the resort will offer our guests unparalleled luxury with exceptional service which is warm, personalized and heartfelt,” he said.
The Oberoi Group’s executive chairman also expressed his pride with the hotel in a statement to the Times Of India.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of the Oberoi in Marrakech. We look forward to expanding the group’s presence in one of the most exotic destinations in the world,” he said.
He added that he is “convinced that this new hotel, with its exceptional location, design and dedicated team will provide Oberoi’s distinctive service to travelers around the world. “
