About La Mamounia
Recently renovated after a closure of three months, Patrick Jouin & Sanjit Manku with their inimitable antiques-hunter style has given La Mamounia a perfect blend between its legendary palace grandeur and Arabo-Andalusian style with modern technologies befitting a 21st-century luxury retreat. The craftsmanship on show is second to none with wood, Tadelakt, zellige and metals all used to their best.
The hotel built in 1923 has always been and – while also celebrating its 100-year anniversary – continues to be a jewel in the crown of Marrakech's hotel portfolio. The 18th-century gardens were a gift from the Alaouite sultan to his son Mamoun as a wedding present.
