Following an extensive renovation and refurbishment, the iconic La Mamounia in Marrakech is set to reopen their doors on Friday, October 16.
As a part of this comprehensive renovation, La Mamounia will introduce two new restaurants in a new partnership with the celebrated Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. One of the world’s most recognised and respected chefs, Chef Jean-Georges will oversee a brand-new Asian Restaurant, with the finest dishes from South Asia, as well as taking the helm of the hotel’s much-beloved Italian Restaurant, which will serve the best pizzas in Marrakech.
Near the Galerie Mamounia, guests will now find the “Salon de thé by Pierre Hermé” which will be a new home for breakfasts, afternoon tea and gastronomic snacks as imagined by the international French Pastry Chef, Pierre Hermé. Bar Italien will introduce a new menu of elevated French cuisine, adding to the sophisticated nature of this much beloved social space.
The sought-after intimacy and seclusion of La Mamounia’s historic Churchill Bar has been further enhanced. In addition to the experience guests have come to know, the 20-seat bar will now offer the opportunity to taste La Mamounia’s special Caviar Maison, made specifically for the hotel from the oldest caviar factory in Paris, Kaviari. At the same time, the roof top of the Moroccan Restaurant has been transformed to a trendy lounge which will host a resident DJ.
Le Pavillon de la Piscine has been completely reimagined with very elegant new food stands offering a new experience for guests. La Mamounia will also have a “sweet corner” by Pierre Hermé, where pastries will be fashionably displayed. The refreshed Bar de la Piscine will serve exceptional cocktails.
Additionally, the Italian Restaurant terrace located in the basement of the hotel will unveil a unique concept with L’ Oenothèque: a table for 12 guests surrounded by more than 2000 bottles of exceptional wines. This intimate and private experience is a must-do when visiting La Mamounia. Lastly, the hotel announces a new addition to the property, with the creation of a 21-seat multi-functional cinema. Guests may use the cinema to view films, or for business purposes.
The season remains very uncertain for Marrakech, considering the high Covid-19 stats but also the limited flight connections, most of them overpriced. This is due to lack of demand. Morocco has been isolated because of the pandemic from March.
