Park Hyatt is quickly becoming one of my favorite hotel brands. I have had some amazing recent stays in Chicago (review here), Zurich (review here) and Vienna (review here). Its latest hotel has just opened in Marrakech, Morocco.
The Park Hyatt Marrakech was originally slated to open in 2024, but it finished ahead of schedule and is open now. The 130-room hotel is designed in traditional Moroccan style and offers three dining outlets, a spa, a fitness center, meeting spaces, and two pools. The 19-acre resort is located at the base of the Atlas Mountains and about nine miles from Marrakech’s historic Medina district. The Park Hyatt Marrakech sits adjacent to the Al Maaden Golf resort (offering guests easy access to the 18-hole course).
Javier Águila, Group President EAME at Hyatt, said:
As a key market in our regional growth strategy, we are delighted to announce the opening of Morocco’s first Park Hyatt hotel in Marrakech. The property has been a highly anticipated addition to our portfolio as Morocco receives a resurgence of interest as a top tier cultural destination among travel connoisseurs. Offering a wealth of new experiences across the arts, culture, and gastronomy, alongside the area’s historic and ancient treasures, Park Hyatt Marrakech provides guests an enviable opportunity to discover the beauty of the Red City through this modern sanctuary of timeless luxury. Park Hyatt Marrakech marks the eleventh Park Hyatt property in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, following the brand’s successful expansion across key leisure destinations such as Doha, Vienna, Istanbul, Dubai, Zurich, Milan, and Paris.”
The 130 guest rooms and suites are filled with Moroccan touches throughout. Each guest room features traditionally woven Berber carpets and headboards representing the Tataoui motif alongside modern works of art sourced via Ifitry Artists’ Residence.
More than 700 paintings and decorative objects were collected for the Park Hyatt Marrakech. These feature artists from Morocco, Senegal, Benin, Spain, France, Italy, and Japan. In the lobby, almost 600 hand-crafted ceramic pieces by visual artist Mounat Charrat adorn the ceiling, depicting a constellation of meteorites. Two abstract paintings by Italian artist Gianni Lucchessi offer a contrast to the surrounding, raw-earth wall panels.
The resort will feature everything guests need to relax and be pampered. Dining options include TFAYA (an arabesque brasserie), Le Pavillon (a light, all-day menu served poolside), and The Living Room, which is a signature social space for drinks and tapas. A massive 23,000-square-foot spa will pay homage to Morocco’s culture of hammam rituals and holistic therapies. To keep up with your exercise routine or just for fun, the hotel offers a 2,153-square-foot fitness center and yoga studio, an outdoor heated pool, a second family-friendly outdoor pool, and an indoor heated pool beneath a vaulted ceiling.
Anthony’s Take: The hotel looks gorgeous and I hope to check it out one day. Park Hyatt’s offer modern, minimalist luxury and the brand has become one of my favorites.
