Set amid idyllic gardens, La Mamounia is one of Marrakesh’s most elegant hotels. Opened in 1923 it is played host to many distinguished guests, including Winston Churchill. He lends his name to the hotel’s bar, Le Churchill, a chic space with a touch of New York jazz club to it. The walls are studded with green leather which is appropriately peppered with photos of glam images of the jazz-age. There is live piano music most nights, the drinks are traditional and very well made and the atmosphere is appealingly old world, a throw back to a more civilized time.
