The Anantara Marrakech Resort & Spa and the Anantara Mogador Resort & Spa will both open in 2011. The Marrakech property will be located within the Altas Golf Resort and within 10 minutes of the Djemaa El Fna, the center of the Marrakech medina. The Mogador resort, meanwhile, will be situated adjacent to the historic town of Essaouira on the Atlantic coast.
Such is the hotel company’s rapid expansion, that Rajakarier says “within 5 years we expect to have 30 properties.” For now, though, they have 10, shall we say, “experiences”—five in Thailand, three in the Maldives, one in Indonesia, and one in Abu Dhabi with the Qasr Al Sarab opening later this year.
“Anantara Resorts offer an experience to guests unlike any other,” says Rajakarier, “one that couples serenity with exoticism and state-of-the-art convenience with indigenous charm. An experience that celebrates the destination—in all its natural beauty and cultural allure.”
