In the heart of Marrakech, is set a jewel of singular beauty. It’s the Royal Mansour Marrakech, an exclusive hotel with a unique restaurant, “Sesamo”, a signature venture by the Alajmo brothers. Tessitura Bevilacqua has created two unique fabrics for its interiors’ decoration.
A Quiet Escape of Absolute Elegance
The Royal Mansour Marrakech, opened in 2010, is a luxury hotel with a one-of-a-kind concept. It represents the classic forms of the traditional medina, featuring 53 private residences inspired by traditional Moroccan riads. The three storeys riads are oases of peace with internal courtyards and decorative fountains.
Each riad of the hotel is decorated in its own style with harmony and elegance, by the French architecture-interior design studio 3BIS, using elements that are the quintessence of Moroccan craftsmanship: elaborate zellige, sumptuous rugs, custom-made furniture, carved plaster.
Guests can enjoy a relaxing and charming environment with refined Andalusian courtyards, fountains, gardens, a Spa and five restaurants. Sesame, the best destination for Italian gourmet cuisine lovers, reflects the refinement and typical elements of Moroccan decorations, but with a distinctive touch that makes it unique.
Sesame: Venetian Influences in Morocco
It feels like entering a Venetian palace when crossing the threshold of Sesame: high ceilings, sumptuous tapestries, precious velvets and elegant details that evoke the style and charm of Venice.
Luxurious, comfortable, warm, yet airy environments, thanks to the harmonious blend of ancient and contemporary elements. The restaurant’s refined furnishings also reflect the philosophy of Michelin-star chef Massimiliano Alajmo, who has created a menu incorporating local Moroccan produce into Italian culinary tradition.
Our Tessitura has contributed to embellishing these rooms, creating for the curtains a particular grenade coloured jacquard velvet, based on a personalized design by the Alajmo brothers and, for the wall panels, the Torcello craquelé damask, bringing the high craftsmanship of the Venetian tradition to Morocco.
