La Mamounia

La Mamounia

Marrakech | Morocco

2009 | ID Jacques Garcia

A favourite of the world elites since 1923, La Mamounia was “l’endroit” where Winston Churchill took refuge to escape the pressures of the war by painting the Atlas Mountains from his suite, and is where business tycoons, athletes and showbiz stars mingle today, in the splendour of the interiors or in the shade of the 700-year-old olive trees once planted for a prince. This historic Moroccan hotel, far beyond any star classification, reopened its doors to the public in 2009, astounding the world after a long 3-year renovation project by the Parisian Master Jacques Garcia. Interna has produced furnishings and tapestries, in a perfect combination of Moroccan splendour and high-level Italian craftsmanship, for the common areas and for all the rooms and suites. Along with such furnishings created ad hoc, many items were selected from the Interna monographic collection Les Grands Classiques de Jacques Garcia. In the various living areas, precious velvets, taffetas and satins, a skilful mix of beige, reds, and vibrant greens, enhance the architecture, creating a refined Arab-Andalusian atmosphere; the rooms and suites, with their own precious layout, have been designed to welcome the guests in a world of absolute peace and relaxation.
