The word "medina" (in Arabic: مدينة madīnah) - simply means "city" or "town" in modern day Arabic. A medina is typically walled, with many narrow and maze-like streets.
The Royal Mansour Marrakech Medina is a labyrinth of enchanting gardens of vivid and sweet scented floral and spectacular vegetation.
A multitude of palm trees, exotic citruses, fruit trees and plants are laid out in geometric designs around a beautiful relaxing central water fountain.
The perfect symmetry is reminiscent of the gardens of the Alhambra Palace in Granada and provides guests with an exquisite retreat where they can read quietly or simply lose themselves in the wonder of the tranquil Medina environment.
Here in the Medina Gardens that surround the riads and spa, guests are carried away into a secret garden of delights. A magnificent colour range unfolds before their eyes, from the flower beds, to the citrus trees and to the palm trees reaching up to the sky.
The captivating scents of roses, citrus, gardenias, jasmine, thyme basil, mint, sage, rosemary and eucalyptus will fill you with a wave of unprecedented bliss. The soothing sounds of flowing water, the ever present singing birds combined with the whispering of the wind into the trees, is the promise of tranquility.
Among this magical senses festival, water plays a vital role as it represents the garden’s soul, giving life to everything that lives and grows. Take a moment to enjoy the numerous streams, manicured channels, ponds, waterfalls and water features and fountains.
We are extremely proud of our Royal Mansour Marrakech Gardens. Our team of gardeners work tirelessly to keep and maintain them in their prime. And thanks to Morocco’s sub-tropical climate you will experience an enchanting moment by strolling through the Medina Gardens.
Luis Vallejo is the hotel's landscape designer, and he describes the gardens at the Royal Mansour as a modern interpretation of the Andalusia concept by referring to the Hispano-Arabic gardens supremacy. The gardens represent the agricultural continuity of the Marrakech environment, linking the garden to its history and to the ‘Andalusia’ heritage in the form of an orchard.
