The aesthete equestrian passion for the beauty of Arabian horses is at the origin of the concept of this new hotel address. Located at the gateway to the Atlas, five minutes from Marrakech, this palace intends to establish itself amongst the best hotels in Morocco. Jacques Garcia designed the Moorish decor, the opulent and ultra comfortable 56 rooms and suites, and Chenot spa. The stud, also by Jacques Garcia, has a private collection of 16 Arabian horses, including 10 thoroughbred horses and 6 hiking horses that roam freely in their pens.
