Marriott International and Eagle Hills have announced the signing of The St Regis Tamuda Bay, marking the debut of the iconic luxury hospitality brand in Morocco.
Located in the epicentre of Tamuda Bay on the country’s north-western coast, The St Regis Tamuda Bay is slated to open in 2020.
The property will be part of La Bahia Blanca, a lifestyle resort development being built by Eagle Hills, an Abu Dhabi-based private real estate investment and development company. The resort will pay tribute to the Andalusian culture through design, hospitality and food and beverage offerings.
“Alluring to the luxury traveller”
Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, said: “The rich heritage and cultural and historic legacy of Morocco have long been alluring to the luxury traveller. 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 travellers.”
The St Regis Tamuda Bay will offer 100 luxuriously-appointed guestrooms and suites with unobstructed sea views and will feature hallmarks of the renowned brand, including the signature St Regis Butler Service.
The resort’s culinary offerings will include a specialty restaurant, an all-day dining restaurant featuring a wide range of gourmet selections, and a St Regis Bar inspired by the King Cole Bar at the brand’s flagship in New York.
Leisure facilities will include a spa, pool, and state-of-the-art fitness centre, while its event and meeting spaces will be ideal for both small and large-scale events.
“A new standard for service and sophistication in Morocco”
M’Hammed El Merini, general manager, Eagle Hills, added: “We are very excited to take our partnership with Marriott International to the next level with the St. Regis legacy and the brand’s renowned bespoke service. The St. Regis Tamuda Bay will set a new standard for service and sophistication in Morocco, and we look forward to welcoming guests to experience the resort’s unrivalled luxury.”
