In the 1950s and 60s, the sophisticated Moroccan elite from Rabat and Casablanca would flock to the majestic La Renaissance in the commercial area of Gueliz, only steps away from the legendary Souk Medina. There they would mingle with guests from all across the globe. Yet, until the design team began to breathe new life into the historic space, it had become a ghost of its former self. Now, their signature blend of high-end East-meets-West elegance refurnishes the classic building’s 35 rooms and 10 suites, returning it to its heyday.
Lovers of fine food will appreciate the revival of Hotel La Renaissance and the introduction of its twin restaurants and two cocktail lounges into Marrakech’s sparkling social scene. “La Brasserie” and “Aqua Pazza” bring the best cuisine of France and Italy to a classically Moroccan setting. At Aqua Pazza, guests can savor European culinary delights, while feasting on the unique and unspoiled view of the city and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. As the tallest building in Marrakech, Hotel La Renaissance provides guests with the best view of the creatively bubbling cityscape.
Hotel La Renaissance’s design concept and social spaces gracefully draw upon its own history as a hive of European and North African glamour. By reviving the iconic focal point for Marrakech’s chic social life, the re-opening of Hotel La Renaissance guarantees a new surge of life and fresh delights to Morocco’s inspiring capital.
