Rooms & Suites: 43
Palais Namaskar in Marrakech opened as part of the Oetker Collection of ‘Masterpiece’ Hotels in April 2012.
An idyllic resort of 41 suites, villas and palaces, Palais Namaskar has been beautifully developed following Feng Shui principles and lies in a picturesque setting between the Atlas Mountains and the Djebilet Hills. Renowned French-Algerian designer, and former associate of Philippe Starck, Imaad Rahmouni and owner and creator Philippe Soulier are behind the exquisite architecture, which blends Oriental and contemporary developments enhanced by subtle Moorish and Andalusian touches. Palais Namaskar, which is also member of the esteemed Leading Hotels of the World, sits amidst 50,000 square metres of scented and manicured Balinese-inspired gardens complemented by cascading waterfalls and lakes; water flows through over 1.5 hectares of Palais Namaskar’s grounds.The philosophy behind the property is to provide guests with a magical and unique setting in which to disconnect from the world and experience their perfect moment.
Dining facilities, directed by our Executive Chef Antoine Perray, include ‘Le Namaskar’ Restaurant, which overlooks the main pool and is set to be the place to be seen in Marrakech. The Tea Lounge, ‘Espace T’, provides a more relaxed setting for light snacks and afternoon tea featuring the Parisian tea house Mariage Frères and the ‘No Mad Bar’, which comprises an amazing evening bar and a stylish rooftop bar, whereas the latter affords stunning views across both the Atlas Mountains and the Djebilet Hills. Palais Namaskar’s spa has two double treatment rooms with private hammam and four individual cabins with private outdoor terraces. Treatments are by Guerlain and ila, focusing on both spiritual and physical healing. The property’s stunning grounds also provide the perfect setting for an indulgent treatment or guests can request an in-room spa experience. A well-equipped gym with the latest equipment and a 1km jogging path surrounding the resort contribute to the exceptional well-being and fitness facilities. A personal trainer and yoga teacher are on hand for private or group classes.
