A New Landmark in Luxury

With its official debut on July 1, 2024, Park Hyatt Marrakech marks the brand’s first foray into Morocco, joining the prestigious ranks of Park Hyatt Zanzibar and the upcoming Park Hyatt Johannesburg set to open in 2025.

Strategically situated on 7.5 hectares of land, Park Hyatt Marrakech is located approximately 9 kilometers from the historic Medina of Marrakech, providing guests with an exclusive retreat away from the bustling tourist areas. Surrounded by palm trees, olive groves, and jacaranda trees, the resort borders the Al Maaden Golf Resort, giving guests convenient access to its 18-hole course.

Architectural Elegance and Cultural Heritage

What sets Park Hyatt Marrakech apart is its modern, stylish interpretation of Arabic and Berber heritage. Designed by renowned architect Imaad Rahmouni, the resort seamlessly blends contemporary amenities with traditional Moroccan craftsmanship. Guests will be enchanted by the stunning vistas of the Atlas Mountains and Mount Toubkal, visible from numerous vantage points within the hotel, including the lobby, spa treatment rooms, and poolside loungers.
