Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Atlantic Coast Hospitality, a subsidiary of real estate development firm Q Holding, have announced the opening of a luxury hotel in the Moroccan capital. The property will be housed in a renovated 19th century palace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It is set to be Four Seasons’ 4th property in the country.
Four Seasons Hotel Rabat at Kasr Al Bahr is expected to welcome its first clients this year. The hotel will boast 204 guestrooms and suites, 7 restaurants and lounges, a spa with treatment rooms and an indoor pool, several outdoor resort-style pools, and an expansive conference and event space.
The palace is known as “castle of the sea” (Kasr Al Bahr) and was originally constructed as a royal summer palace in the 1800s. It later served as a military hospital before closing in 1999. The building and its 5-hectare site have been extensively renovated. The hotel restoration was led by Moroccan-based architect Karim Chakor of META Atelier d'Architecture. Roger Nazarian and Associates managed the property’s interior design and landscaping.
Gregory Viaud has been appointed as the hotel’s General Manager. The 19-year Four Seasons veteran and his team have already started working to prepare the property for the arrival of its first guests.
As Four Seasons continues to grow its presence in Morocco, we are proud to build upon the success of our existing properties in Marrakech and Casablanca while introducing a complementary experience, this time in the nation’s capital city. We are honoured that our partners at Atlantic Coast Hospitality have chosen Four Seasons as the stewards of Kasr Al Bahr, and we look forward to introducing guests to this dynamic destination through a new luxury hospitality experience marked by our renowned personalised service and quality excellence.
Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
As we transform Kasr Al Bahr for the future, we are proud to showcase Rabat’s history and culture while creating a world-class hospitality experience for all who visit. Four Seasons is the ideal partner for this important project, and together we are dedicated to honouring this exceptional property while offering guests the service and experiences they have grown to expect from this legendary brand.
