Iconic Brand to Set a New Benchmark for Bespoke Luxury and Modern Glamour along the Mediterranean Coast
Marriott International and Eagle Hills today announced the signing of The St. Regis Tamuda Bay, marking the debut of the iconic luxury hospitality brand in Morocco. Located in the stylish epicenter of Tamuda Bay on the country’s northwestern coast, the hotel is slated to open in mid 2020. The property will be part of La Bahia Blanca, a landmark lifestyle resort development being built by Eagle Hills, an Abu Dhabi-based private real estate investment and development company. The resort will exude Moroccan charm and pay tribute to the Andalusian cultural legacy through elevated design, exceptional service and unique food and beverage offerings.
“The rich heritage, and cultural and historic legacy of Morocco has long been alluring to the luxury traveler. 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,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Eagle Hills, and look forward to offering guests an unparalleled experience both befitting of the destination and true to the St. Regis legacy.”
Poised to become the city’s best address, The St. Regis Tamuda Bay will offer easy access to one of the world’s most magnificent beaches. The hotel will include 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 sophisticated culinary offerings will include a specialty restaurant, an all-day dining restaurant featuring a wide range of gourmet selections, and an iconic St. Regis Bar inspired by the King Cole Bar at the brand’s flagship in New York, where the world-renowned Bloody Mary cocktail was born in 1934.
Leisure facilities will include a spa, pool, and state-of-the-art fitness center. The St. Regis Tamuda Bay will also offer unrivalled event and meeting spaces, an ideal setting for small and large scale events.
“We are very excited to take our collaboration with Marriott International to the next level with the St. Regis legacy and the brand’s renowned bespoke service,” said M’Hammed El Merini, General Manager, Eagle Hills. “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.”
La Bahia Blanca, which will be an exclusive lifestyle resort on the Moroccan coast will combine luxury hospitality and a select number of beachfront residential villas with high-end leisure facilities including a beach, a Park and a children’s play area.
