Mon Amour Hotel, Royal Mansour...

It's Tuesday! Time for me to introduce you to another FAB hotel, and this one is in my favorite city, ofcourse, Marrakech Morocco.
I introduce you to 'Royal Monsour', sponsored by the King (Mohammed VI) himself, this pure Royal hotel is sheer pleasure to all your six senses. It's a living paradise...
This is Morocan Interior Design at its paramont...
Traditional craft technique and modern idea blend in beautifully...like a cocoon..
    Moroccan Architectural designs always blew me away with their meticulous patterns...gorgeous!



                  This is Western Design and Moroccan craft densign married together. Wonderful!




I won't leave my blog without alittle explanation of this top, beautiful hotel:

This magnificent hotel was built at the behest of Morocco's King Mohammed VI with a undisclosed, but evidently immense, budget. Tucked within the city walls, across the road from La Mamounia, the 3.5-hectare site has been contrived as a sort of medina-within-the-medina, an estate of 53 two-storey riads, each individually decorated and serviced via a network of subterranean tunnels. In addition to at least one bedroom, a sitting room and a patio, many of the riads have dining rooms, for those who decline to dine in the three restaurants. La Grande Table Française, already held to be the best French restaurant in Africa, the only marginally less fancy Grande Table Marocaine and the all-day-dining La Table are overseen by chef Yannick Alléno (from the three-Michelin-star restaurant at Le Meurice in Paris). What truly sets this hotel apart, however, are not its fragrant Moorish gardens, heavenly outdoor pool, superb spa and hammams, or gorgeous bars. Rather, it's the craftsmanship. More than 1,500 Moroccan artisans were employed to craft the exquisite zelij (the geometric mosaic tiling that distinguishes Marrakech's important historic sites), produce the screens of lacy white metal latticework which make the spa look so pretty, carve the countless panels of cedar fretwork moucharabieh and create the stucco known as gebs (even on the stairwells). The attention to detail continues with the marquetry, stained glass and beaten bronze,  and the intricate silver embroidery on the staff uniforms. As a monumental work of art, the Royal Mansour is on a par with the best Marrakech has to offer, which is quite an achievement.

When to go Spring and autumn are the loveliest months in Marrakech. This year, Ramadan runs for the duration of August.

Room to book There isn't a dud option, but the riad with the greatest swank factor is the four-bedroom, 1,800-square-metre Riad d'Honneur.
