Global luxury lifestyle brand Nobu Hospitality has announced a decision to expand its network with the opening of a hotel in Marrakech, the brand’s first in Africa.
Iconic Hollywood star Robert De Niro, Japanese celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and American producer Meir Teper are the founders of Nobu Hospitality.
Nobu is set to construct the new hotel in the Hivernage neighbourhood, known for its nightlife and just a few miles away from Marrakech’s traditional souks and the “vibrant” Jemaa El Fna.
The brand announced that its hotel in Marrakech will have 71 “spacious” guest rooms and suites.
The hotel will also host dining venues and rooftop spaces, as well as a 2,200-square-meter spa and fitness center. The space will also include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a conference hall, and an event space.
The hotel is set to open in 2021.
