A Marrakech Holiday

Querido experienced the magic of Marrakech during the winter season, and we can truly say there is nothing like it.

Our team lived like royalty at Royal Mansour Marrakech, a luxurious palace with a unique blend of modern luxuries and timeless design — hand-crafted by over 1,500 artisans for Morocco’s King Mohammed VI. A place where you can indulge in absolute exclusivity, grandeur, and a lifestyle that is beyond what we can ever imagine. With four restaurants meticulously executed by two three Michelin-star chefs, a Moorish-style spa, and five acres of fragrant gardens, we never felt the need to leave the palace!

Royal Mansour stands out from the rest with its unique concept – no rooms or suites here! Instead, guests can stay in one – to four -bedroom riads with private courtyards, rooftop with plunge pools, fountains, dining spaces, butler services, and even hammams in select residences!

As we made our way through Royal Mansour’s gates this end-of-year season, we were transported to a Moroccan winter wonderland brimming with glittering colors and illuminated Christmas trees around every corner with exquisite culinary menus at French brasserie La Table and their latest Italian restaurant, SESAMO – inviting you in for a truly unforgettable experience!

What is a visit to Marrakech without Tea Time? During this festive season, the palace’s Chefs have crafted a menu for us to devour featuring salmon delicacies, gingerbread treats, velvety orange truffles and melt-in-your mouth chocolate desserts.

When it comes to extraordinary gifts, a treatment at the Royal Mansour Spa is second-to-none. The team surprised us with a calming and peaceful morning for an unforgettable Hammam experience. This ancient purification ritual has been crafted over centuries with delicate exfoliation and ceremonial massages, leaving us refreshed and nourished for the new year.
