From the Architects
A universe of inspiration: The Royal Mansour is the result of pure inspiration: a dream made real, and a spectacular recreation of a beautiful way of life. 

Royal Mansour Luxury Hotel / 3BIS Interior Architecture

The very soul of Morocco is reflected in the fulfilment of this vision, one that is faithful to architectural tradition, and honours both heritage crafts and contemporary artistic talent. Yet its most memorable aspect is its sense of welcome – that’s where the real magic happens. Guests come away surprised and happy, charged with all the emotions of an exceptional experience.

Discover the Royal Mansour: Is this a palace? Is it an ancient medina? Walking down winding passageways, wandering among leafy courtyards, and tarrying in the gardens, you’ll find peace and pleasure. Welcome to Royal Mansour’s three and a half hectare estate, a haven of luxury and privacy in the heart of Marrakech.

Behind magnificient doors: Chiselled bronze, cedarwood, intricately carved horseshoe arches… This mighty portal can rival the grandest of the imperial cities. Yet, at the Royal Mansour, there are no copies. Everything you see represents the original creativity of a living tradition.

A masterpiece of Moorish-Andalusian architecture: The layout of the main building stays true to the style and symmetry of classical Moorish architecture, the exterior retaining a certain sobriety, while the interior pays homage to the virtuosity of Morocco’s artisan craftsmen.

Distinctive geometric zellige tiles cover walls and pillars. Sleek tadlakt plaster gleams in contrast with intricate plasterwork. Wrought iron lamps compete for finesse with the carved wood of the doors. The ingenuity of Moroccan design offers infinite combinations of colour and finish among the hallways and salons, each space given its own unique feel.

The silvery floral motifs adorning the glowing glass bar contrast with gold-on-white foliage patterns on the ceiling; the wood panelling in the library displays the exquisite art of marquetry inlay. The Royal Mansour’s role as a patron of traditional Moroccan arts and crafts is a vital aspect of its unique status among luxury hotels; with its 550-strong collection of paintings, the hotel also champions contemporary Moroccan artists.
