Ritz-Carlton Residences Marrakech brings a fresh take on luxury to Morocco
The luxury villas combine opulent living with polo membership right in the heart of cultural Marrakesh
If your dream abode combines unrivalled culture, year-round sunshine and the 'sport of kings', then look no further than the Ritz-Carlton Residences Marrakech, which since coming on the market in April 2018, have enjoyed an unprecedented surge in first phase sales. With 65% of the luxury villas already sold since launch, the Residences have proven an attractive investment opportunity for buyers seeking an opulent lifestyle within Morocco's cultural centre.
Located on the 50-hectare Jnan Amar Polo Resort, the community is a 20-minute journey from central Marrakech and offers access to a nine-month polo season just a stone's throw from your front door. Starting at £1.14m, each of the residences has been developed on expansive plots boasting beautiful views of the surrounding polo field and nearby Atlas Mountains.
“When we conceived the project, the intention was to identify key factors and characteristics that would create a compelling residential community beyond what exists in Marrakech today.” said developer Amar Abdelhadi. “The marriage between The Ritz-Carlton, polo and Marrakech has been validated by our phase 1 results, so we look forward to continued success.”
Buyers can take their pick of eight different types of villas and two different interior design options. Amenities include private terrace, heated swimming pool, en suite bathrooms, living areas, fitted kitchens, and separate dining areas.
"There’s growing confidence in investing in Morocco and there are some promising property investment options with attractive returns." said Charles Smith, Managing Director at Prime New Developments, a UK broker for the project. "However, there still remains many gaps in Marrakech’s real estate market, and The Ritz-Carlton Residences Marrakech have successfully filled one such void with the only hotel-branded villas for sale on the market at the moment. The residences are an ideal choice for someone looking for a second home of extremely high-quality, which offers a unique polo sporting adventure not too far away, with multiple and daily flight connections from the UK."
No doubt adding extra attraction for buyers are the additional benefits that come with owning a Ritz-Carlton Marrakesh Residence. Residents have access to the hotel brand's Privilege Card, allowing 10 nights at any Ritz-Carlton hotel internationally, and Jnan Amar Polo Club membership for two years. An eclectic destination, Marrakech has historically been a hit with a host of celebrities such as Andy Warhol, The Rolling Stones, the Getty family, and resident Yves Saint Laurent, who famously described the destination as “the city that taught me colour".
