According to eTurboNews, Mandarin Oriental is getting ready to debut an ultra-luxury property in Marrakech (Morocco).

Situated on a 50-acre estate in the Palmeraie outside of the city, the Mandarin Oriental, Marrakech will have 54 Moroccan-inspired villas, each equipped with a large garden, open-air shower, and heated pool. The seven suites will have rooftop pools overlooking the Atlas Mountains, while the two Spa suites will each have an infinity lap pool.

The hotel will have five food and beverage concepts, serving both Moroccan and international cuisine, plus an expansive spa. Covering more than 19,000 square feet, the spa will have a yoga studio, fitness centre, and indoor pool, in addition to the four treatment rooms and two couples’ suites.

The hotel will also be able to host business functions and receptions for up to 1,000 guests.

It is speculated that the hotel will open in the second quarter of 2015.
