International hotel group Hyatt has opened the first Moroccan property under its Park Hyatt brand, with a 130-room Park Hyatt Marrakech is situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, next to the Al Maaden Golf resort, around 15 km from the city’s Medina district.

In a press statement, Hyatt says that the property comprises 16 pavillions built around a central patio, and was designed by Marrakech-based architect Imaad Rahmouni, drawing inspiration from Arab-Berber traditions.

Facilities include ‘arabesque brasserie’ Tfaya, all day dining venue Le PavilLion, seven events spaces, a 2,200 sqm spa, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

The statement adds that the hotel also features more than 700 paintings and decorative objects by artists from Morocco, Senegal, Benin, Spain, France, Italy and Japan, including a lobby installation of 600 hand-crafted ceramic pieces by visual artist Mounat Charrat.

Park Hyatt Marrakech joins Park Hyatt Zanzibar as just the second property under the brand in Africa, with Park Hyatt Johannesburg scheduled to open in 2025.
