Visiting Marrakech was on my bucket list for the longest time, and an invitation to spend a few days under the Moroccan sun at the Royal Mansour came as a blessing. Oh, what a trip it was! It was truly one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives.

Royal Mansour, a property of timeless modern design embodying the spirit of Morocco, is firstly owned by the King of Morocco. It was built by 1,500 artisans and is an ode to Moroccan architecture and design, showcasing the best of the country’s craftsmanship. There are no elevators, no carts, no rooms, and no crowds here. Instead, the property is made up of 53 private riads (it’s the only all-riad property in Marrakech), in which each accommodation is made up of three floors, and each has a courtyard and a rooftop plunge pool. There are also ten staff members per guest which is pretty unheard of. Extensive gardens of olive trees and rose bushes overflow throughout the property. This is an impeccable haven amidst a bustling city.

The stunning Spa Royal Mansour is 27,000 square feet and consists of private suites, hammans, Watsu pool, and more. Three-stories of intricate white latticework surround an open area where guests are greeted and offered juice or tea while they await their treatments. I received my first hammam experience (similar to a traditional Korean sauna scrub), a Takhlita hair application, ceremonial massage, Bastien Gonzalez manicure, topped off with a blow dry (they call this “brushing”). I left feeling like a Queen (with a capital Q!).

We spent a relaxing afternoon by the pool, where it was perfectly 90 degrees in dry heat. When not in the water, we were able to cool off in one of the seven beautiful pool pavilions, while ordering lunch from Le Jardin, an open-air restaurant (impeccable flavors from Chef Alléno) and four-acre garden (created by the Spanish landscape designer Luis Vallejo).

Our last meal was at the fine-dining restaurant on property, La Grande Table Marocaine by Michelin-starred French chef Yannick Alleno. We had incredible seafood paired with local wines. After dinner, we were brought out to the main pavilion of the restaurant to enjoy tea. If there’s one thing I’m going to miss having everyday in Morocco, it’s going to be the Moroccan mint tea served here!
