La Mamounia, Marrakech

La Mamounia was Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite hotel. He visited regularly and took US president Franklin Roosevelt there towards the end of World War II. It’s has a park rather than just a garden. Now it’s been revamped losing some of its art deco charms but re-inforcing its character as Moroccan. It’s truly fabulous … but don’t expect to just walk in to view its classy charms. You pretty much need to book to get in… but if you have the cash then great … you’ll enjoy it.
