Fairmont takes over Tazi Palace in Tangier

Fairmont takes over Tazi Palace in Tangier

Following a restoration and expansion Tangier’s Tazi Palace is set to open as a Fairmont-branded hotel next month.

Originally built in the 1920s as a residence for the King’s advisor, the new Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier is set upon 3.5 acres of lush, secluded hills overlooking the city with 133 guestrooms, suites and penthouses, a wide range of culinary venues, and rejuvenating wellness offerings.

Curated and designed by OBMI & CCCRA Architects, the property’s historic features have been meticulously restored to their original 1920s glory. The palace will offer select guestrooms overlooking the forested hillside, with additional rooms providing unobstructed views of the Old City with mountains on the horizon, creating a picturesque atmosphere.

Adorned throughout the reimagined interior of the property, guests can find artwork by local artisans in the handcrafted Mousharabieh, Tadelakt and Zellige features of the hotel. Each guestroom embodies the elements of traditional Moroccan decor and finely crafted textiles in a harmonious and vibrant design.

Across the expansive grounds, the property’s landscaping reflects a unique blend between Arab and Andalusian cultures: the native, centenary eucalyptus trees have been preserved, and now live alongside thriving palm, olive, citrus, and pomegranate groves.

For those with a refined palette and desire for authentic cultural cuisine, the palace will be home to seven culinary venues, led by Head Chef Christopher Blake. Crudo brings the warmth of Northern Mediterranean cuisine to every dish, while Clémentine is offering fresh, seasonal ingredients and wholesome and nutritious choices.

At the golden hour, the atmosphere outside takes an effervescent turn at Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-Bar. For a cosier experience, Origin offers innovative cocktails created by expert mixologists, using handpicked ingredients from the palace’s vegetable garden.

Travelling from Doha to Tangier, Parisa is an Authentic interpretation of Persian hospitality – a juxtaposition of tradition and modernity, opulence and restraint with shareable dishes rich in spices and herbs from around the world.

 With more than 26,000ft2 dedicated to well-being, the Fairmont Spa was thoughtfully designed to emphasise the destination’s authentic character and connecting with native Moroccan surroundings. Offering a holistic experience, the Fairmont Spa includes ten treatment rooms and outdoor spaces bathed in natural sunlight that lead to a vitality pool, private spa, solarium, and hammam.
