When this came across my desk, it made me take pause: the “One Million Dirham Ultimate Experience” package at one of my fave properties, La Mamounia in Marrakech.
Just what do you get for your million D’s (that’s about 122,500 USD)? Private jet arrival from any European city within three hours of the Moroccan city, transport by Daimler Jag to your private riad (butler included, of course) for a three-night stay, private wine tasting with the house sommelier followed by a gastronomic adventure, champagne breakfast daily, helicoptering over the Atlas Mountains, exclusive shopping experiences, treatments in the private spa area, an outing at a “secret” location in the desert for drinks and nibbles, and a private jazz recital in your riad.
Marrakech is a city that should be on everyone’s bucket list; it is beautiful beyond words, and La Mamounia is the undisputed grande dame of the city’s traditional hotels. The “One Million Dirham” experience, which sounds truly ultimate, is based on two people traveling, and is available between Feb 15 and March 31, or Sept 15-Dec 22.
