Morocco: Grace Hotels has acquired Les Terres M’Barka, a luxury boutique hotel 22 kilometres south-west of Marrakech.
The hotel will become known as Grace Marrakech, and is the group’s first North African property. It is set in 15 hectares of countryside and features its own farmstead with olive trees, vegetable gardens and horse stables.
Comprising 18 suites and lofts (some with two or three bedrooms), a restaurant, bar, library, outdoor heated pool, traditional farm kitchen and fully serviced spa with traditional hammam and whirlpool, it will re-launch as Grace Marrakech in Q4 2013.
Philippe M. E. Requin, CEO of Grace Hotels, said: “We are very excited to announce the latest addition to the Grace portfolio. The blend of traditional design with contemporary touches which dominates Les Terres M’Barka perfectly complements our existing portfolio of boutique hotels. We look forward to bringing the Grace philosophy of elegance and simplicity to this beautiful property in one of the most sought after destinations in North Africa.”
