Did someone say winter sun? Opening its doors to guests this November, take a closer look at Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier, Morocco’s hottest new opening
Originally built in the 1920s as a residence for the King’s advisor, the former palace has been painstakingly restored and expanded upon, set upon 3.5 acres of lush, secluded hills overlooking the city with views to gawp at.
Debuting this autumn, the new Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier mirrors the city’s seductive charm. Nestled on the Moroccan Riviera, the majestic property will feature unparalleled luxury throughout its 133 rooms, suites and penthouses – including one Signature Suite, two Penthouses, and one Katara Suite for those seeking something extra special.
Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier will provide the ultimate cultural getaway, cultivating the style and artistry of Tangier. Curated and designed by OBMI & CCCRA Architects, the property’s historic features have been meticulously restored to their original 1920s glory and are complimented by a collection of vibrant dining venues and a spectacular wellness centre.
The palace will offer select guestrooms overlooking the forested hillside, with additional rooms providing unobstructed views of the Old City with mountains on the horizon, creating a picturesque atmosphere.
For those with a refined palette and desire for authentic cultural cuisine, the palace will be home to an impressive seven culinary venues, ensuring guests have access to eclectic dining experiences and handcrafted, refreshing cocktails throughout their stay. Led by the talented Head Chef Christopher Blake, the selection of vibrant restaurants and bars reflect the hotel’s essence and personality, delivering exceptional cuisine with curated menus and varied entertainment.
“Tangier is a vibrant and multicultural city infused with Mediterranean spirit, and we’re thrilled to give the opportunity for guests to experience Fairmont’s pioneering approach to unique hospitality while exploring the many cultures and civilizations that have shaped the city’s rich history,” commented Fabien Gastinel, General Manager Fairmont Tazi Palace.
Adorned throughout the reimagined interior of the property, guests can find artwork by Artisans from the local Moroccan community in the handcrafted Mousharabieh, Tadelakt and Zellige features of the hotel. In addition, each guestroom embodies the elements of traditional Moroccan decor and finely crafted textiles in a harmonious and vibrant design.
Across the expansive grounds, the property’s landscaping reflects a unique blend between Arab and Andalusian cultures: the native, centenary eucalyptus trees have been preserved, and now live alongside thriving palm, olive, citrus, and pomegranate groves.
The wellness aspects are equally inviting. The Fairmont Spa welcomes guests in search of reconnecting to the mind, body, and soul through the power of potent, natural elements. With more than 26,000 square feet dedicated to well-being, the space was thoughtfully designed to emphasize the destination’s authentic character and connecting with native Moroccan surroundings.
Offering a holistic experience, the Fairmont Spa includes ten treatment rooms and outdoor spaces bathed in natural sunlight that lead to a vitality pool, private spa, solarium, and hammam. Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier’s Spa partners were carefully selected to offer an honest wellness experience and include, Sodashi, Maison d’Asa, and Swissline Cosmetic.
