Royal Mansour Marrakech is expanding its outdoor footprint by nearly three acres to extend its quiet oasis in the heart of Marrakech.

The new outdoor spaces include an organic herb and vegetable garden that will be utilised by the property’s restaurants and spa as well as an exclusive private dining experience elevated above the trees for up to eight guests.

Medicinal plants, including mint, rosemary, sage, and lavender, are cultivated for use in infusions and treatments in the sprawling Spa Royal Mansour. Meanwhile, freshly picked organic carrots, cardoons, eggplants, broad beans, and more are incorporated into the property’s four restaurants, with an emphasis on flavoursome yet nutritious dishes.

Nestled within an oasis of lemon and palm trees, a new private-dining experience, aptly titled The Nest, has been elevated 5 metres above the gardens with uninterrupted views over Marrakech and the Koutoubia Mosque’s Atlas tower.

Accommodating up to eight guests, the open-air dining space is an extension of Le Jardin, featuring a Mediterranean and Asian-fusion menu by Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno including royal sea bream ceviche, sirloin beef wagyu and a frozen coconut dessert.

Whether guests opt for a sunset cocktail, celebrating a missed milestone or enjoying a private family dinner, The Nest offers a hidden sanctuary within the property grounds. Each experience is customisable as the team works with guests to create curated playlists, floral arrangements, and exclusive menus.

Through the winding pathways and verdant gardens, an alfresco dining table, La Table Champêtre, will also be available for private lunches and events.
