Morocco is making moves in the events world, especially with the recent announcement that it’s considering a joint intercontinental bid with Spain and Portugal to host the 2030 World Cup—and you better believe that means Marriott is in on the action.
The hotel company recently announced plans to debut the St. Regis Tamuda Bay in Morocco’s stylish Tamuda Bay, along the country’s northwestern coast. The 100-room property will wear the luxury St. Regis name proudly, while exuding a Moroccan feel through design and food and beverage outlets, as well as close proximity to one of the country’s best beaches.
“The rich heritage, and cultural and historic legacy of Morocco has long been alluring to the luxury traveler,” says Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, for Marriott International. “The St. Regis Tamuda Bay represents an exciting moment for St. Regis as the brand continues to grow globally in destinations welcoming a new generation of luxury travelers.”
The property will also stay close to its St. Regis roots in the form of the St. Regis Bar inspired by the King Cole Bar at the brand’s flagship New York property. There will very likely be a Bloody Mary on the menu, as the King Cole Bar is where the famous cocktail was first created in 1934.
And for meetings: While it’s too early to tell exact square footage, the property promises event and meeting spaces that can accommodate both small- and large-scale events in addition to a spa, pool and top-rate fitness center.
