One of the world’s shining stars in the luxury hotel industry celebrates its birthday. The legendary Hotel La Mamounia in Marrakech is celebrating its impressive 100th anniversary. It has become synonymous with luxury, culture and unparalleled Moroccan hospitality.
A hotel of incomparable rank
“The most beautiful place in the world” is how Winston Churchill once described La Mamounia. And who would contradict him? Imagine strolling through the halls of La Mamounia. Every step brings the tales of the walls to life. Here, amid 136 uniquely designed rooms and 71 suites, every detail resplendent, you’ll feel almost like you’re in a fairy tale. And then there are the three enchanting riads that seem to come straight out of an old tale.
La Mamounia is more than just a hotel. It is a witness to the times through which Moroccan history comes alive. Big names from all over the world have relaxed, laughed and dreamed here. These walls have seen countless unforgettable moments. And as if that were not enough, the hotel also pampers its guests with a first-class culinary experience and a spa that extends over 2,500 square metres. Here the dream of 1001 Nights becomes reality.
Anniversary innovations that inspire
To 100. Anniversary has not only renovated La Mamounia, but also revolutionised it. Special emphasis was placed on preserving the traditional soul of the hotel. The newly designed “Salon d’Honneur” pays tribute to the hotel’s history and its prominent guests. The “Bijou de la Grand Dame“, an opulent chandelier in the lobby, is particularly noteworthy. “It blends harmoniously with the pyramid-shaped ceiling and is an impressive tribute to Moroccan craftsmanship”.
General Manager Pierre Jochem is enthusiastic: “La Mamounia is absolutely timeless and has always captivated with its aura and elegance. The new additions hold various magical innovations in store without touching the soul of this unique place. As a result, the 100-year-old La Mamounia presents itself today younger and stronger than ever before.”
The diverse heritage of La Mamounia
The celebrations of the 100th anniversary go beyond mere renovations. A highlight was the design competition “Tell me about La Mamounia on six plates”. The main focus was on the creativity and innovation of Moroccan youth. For the anniversary, the hotel also honours the job description of the porter, the bawab, who stands for unconditional hospitality. The anniversary macaron “Eternelle Mamounia” by Pierre Hermé is another sweet surprise awaiting the guests.
Imagine a hotel celebrating its 100th anniversary. And it is no ordinary hotel, but La Mamounia in Marrakech! It has always been more than just a place to stay: A palace of dreams, a melting pot of culture and a true jewel of Moroccan hospitality. And now, 100 years later, with all the new extras, the unforgettable events and the culinary feats, La Mamounia still stands there, just as proud and welcoming as the first day.
