If you’re looking for a traditional Moroccan hideaway that reflects the mystique and seductiveness of the country then the Royal Mansour is the place for you. The beauty of the Royal Mansour and it’s unique private medina concept can’t help but take our breath away each time we visit. Built to celebrate local craftsmanship and ancestral history it’s the perfect spot from which to explore Marrakech – whether you’re after a romantic break or just a cultural escape, this haven of 53 separate riads, each connected by lush palm-fringed pathways is the perfect retreat.
On arrival at the airport, you will be greeted by a private driver who will whisk you just 15-minutes to the west side of the famous Medina where friendly faces await to greet you at the Royal Mansour. Right on the doorstep of the Marrakech’s hidden gems, after a days exploring come home to rest your feet at The Royal Mansour’s grand cigar bar or indulge in some local fare at the La Grande Table Marocaine.
After being escorted through the Medina and gardens, your own private residence (a traditional Moroccan Riad) is waiting. Spanning across three different floors around a beautiful central courtyard, you’ll feel like Moroccan Royalty. Each riad is uniquely decorated by local craftsmen and for those looking for something extra special the two bedroom riads come with a personal butler.

For a little pampering, we recommend you to take a trip to the out of this world spa with its towering marble white walls and a wide range of treatments (make sure you try out one of the two Hamman) it’s the perfect place to unwind. For the little ones, the Royal Mansour’s fantastic hands-on kids club will have them busy learning about Morocco and having heaps of fun with making chocolate making classes and camel rides. From the stunning pool to endless passageways, beautiful architecture and exceptional service, the Royal Mansour is a must visit hideaway.
