We’ve teamed up with Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech to offer one lucky reader (and their guest) a luxe break in the ‘red city’.
A little over 20 minutes from the bustling city of Marrakech, the Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech sits away from the frenetic Medina. Resting in the shadows of the Atlas Mountains, amidst palm, olive, and orange trees, the apricot-hued resort and country club cuts an impressive shape.
On arrival, you’ll be bowled over by the sheer magnitude of the resort, complete with 18-hole golf course designed by Cabell B. Robinson. Post-check in – and following a refreshing traditional Maghrebi mint tea – take five in your bedroom’s elegant living room or draw a bath in your enormous marbled bathroom… you are on holidays after all.
Now that you’re in full holiday mode, we suggest you while away the afternoon poolside, grazing on walnuts and Turkish delight, before heading back to your luxurious boudoir for a quick refresh and wardrobe change. Come dinnertime, don your best cigarette pants and sharply cut blazer (in homage to Yves Saint Laurent, ofc) and dine at one of the hotel’s many restaurants and bars (there are six in all) offering local and international cuisine; the princely Al Aïn is a CF favourite.
The next day, after a munificent breakfast on the terrace, make a booking at Le Spa at Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech. Designed like a modern Riad, on entry to this zenful space, spa-goers are met with delicate scents of rose and orange blossom. From lengthy massages with Argan oil to restorative hammam rituals, you and your plus one will also be treated to a signature treatment of your choosing while Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech. Post-treatment, make best use of the decadent, Instagram-worthy spa facilities.
From here, you can navigate the remainder of your stay as you see fit – be that teeing off under cobalt-blue skies, lounging with a good book, or venturing into the Medina in search of a fabulous rug. This your dream North African city break; spend it exactly as you wish.
What does the prize include?
- A two-night stay for two people on a bed and breakfast basis.
- A spa treatment in a duo cabin.
