La Mamounia

Marrakech, Morocco

Come, leave the snake charmers and Berber yarn spinners in the cumin-soaked air of Marrakesh’s nearby plaza Jemaa el-Fnaa and retreat into La Mamounia, a grand dame of Moorish opulence. You could not count on all of your fingers and toes the celebrities, writers, dignitaries and wanderers who have lounged amid these Moroccan-tiled walls and sipped mint tea … and often something stronger. First opened in 1923 and oozing timeless charm, La Mamounia feels like a palace where Arabian princes might still be writing poetry for their lovers.
