Park Hyatt Marrakech invites travel connoisseurs to experience authentic Moroccan hospitality
Hotel showcases rich traditions of Arab-Berber artisanry
The Park Hyatt hospitality brand has entered the vibrant mosaic of Morocco with the grand opening of Park Hyatt Marrakech.
Nestled approximately 15km from the bustling Medina district, the 19-acre haven, cocooned at the base of the Atlas Mountains, is a testament to modern luxury harmoniously interwoven with the genuine allure of Marrakech.
A symphony of contemporary opulence and Arab-Berber heritage, Park Hyatt Marrakech stands as a beacon of distinction in the luxurious tapestry of Morocco.
Surrounded by the lush embrace of palm trees, olive trees, and jacaranda blooms, the resort shares its borders with the Al Maaden Golf resort, offering guests privileged access to an 18-hole golf course.
Designed as a collection of 16 pavilions encircling a central, zeolite patio, the Park Hyatt Marrakech beckons travellers to immerse themselves in an experience that transcends the ordinary.
The property introduces guests to the essence of Marrakech through unexpected and hyperlocal encounters – from sunrise breakfasts aloft in hot-air balloons over the Three Atlas Valleys to moonlit dinners in Bedouin tents nestled in the Agafay desert.
Javier Águila, Group President EAME at Hyatt, said: “The opening of Morocco’s first Park Hyatt hotel in Marrakech is a significant milestone in our regional growth strategy. As a cultural gem, Morocco has rekindled the interest of travel connoisseurs, and Park Hyatt Marrakech promises to be the quintessential gateway to the rich tapestry of the Red City.”
Drawing inspiration from the rich traditions of Arab-Berber artisanry, Marrakech-based architect Imaad Rahmouni has skilfully crafted a contemporary masterpiece in Park Hyatt Marrakech. The design seamlessly merges modern comforts with local aesthetics, ensuring that the breathtaking vistas of the Atlas Mountains and Mount Toubkal become integral elements of the interior panorama.
The hotel’s 130 guestrooms and suites, among the most spacious in Marrakech, serve as sanctuaries of privacy and tranquillity. Moroccan touches grace each space, from traditionally woven Berber carpets to headboards adorned with the Tataoui motif. A collaboration with Ifitry Artists’ Residence brings forth a curated collection of over 700 paintings and decorative objects from artists spanning Morocco, Senegal, Benin, Spain, France, Italy, and Japan.
Park Hyatt Marrakech elevates the dining experience, offering a plethora of authentic and globally inspired options. TFAYA, an arabesque brasserie, helmed by renowned Moroccan chef Issam Rhachi, presents avant-garde dishes like Lobster Mechoui with black garlic, preserved lemon, saffron, cumin, and smoked paprika. Le Pavillon, nestled under shady pergolas, offers a light, all-day menu, while The Living Room invites guests to unwind with Moroccan mint tea or a Fennel Old Fashioned amid beautiful fireplaces and bookshelves.
Beyond the kaleidoscope of flavours, Park Hyatt Marrakech unfolds a haven of tranquillity spanning 23,000 square feet. The spa, a temple of Moroccan hammam rituals and holistic therapies, invites guests to immerse themselves in rejuvenating experiences.
Sodashi and Nectarome products, sourced from the purest natural ingredients, enhance personalised treatments, ensuring a seamless blend of luxury and well-being. The fitness centre, yoga studio, and a trio of pools, each offering unique vistas, complete this wellness sanctuary.
For those seeking a touch of desert-inspired elegance, Park Hyatt Marrakech offers seven function rooms with a residential feel. These spaces, accommodating up to 80 guests, are ideal for weddings, cocktail soirées, or corporate meetings.
The neutral and understated colour palette mirrors the resort’s overall ambience, creating an oasis of comfort. Each pavilion, known as Douars, boasts a rooftop terrace with a 360° panorama, ensuring unforgettable experiences for private events.
Pascal Leprou, General Manager of Park Hyatt Marrakech, said: “We have crafted a refined home-away-from-home that unlocks unparalleled enrichment, upholding and honouring Moroccan traditions. The result is an intimate sanctuary of exceptional and magical surroundings for the curious and adventurous travellers.”
