Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces inked a management contract with JK Hotels to launch Taj Palace, Marrakech.
The hotel is set to open in the fall, increasing Taj’s international portfolio to 17 hotels.
The property will feature 161 guestrooms, including 25 Grand Suites and one Royal Suite, offering views of the Atlas Mountains and palm gardens of the Palmeraie district.
The interior design, created by American Stuart Church, will feature Moroccan, Ottoman, Asian and Indian influences.
Amenities will include several restaurants, a 40,000-square-foot Jiva Grande Spa with two hammams and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
“Taj Palace Marrakech is our latest venture into the African continent and is in sync with our strategy to continue our vision of growth in key international destinations,” said Raymond Bickson, managing director and CEO of the Indian Hotels Co. Ltd.
Taj Palace Marrakech is located 30 minutes from the international airport.
