Stroll, dream and savour the passing time...
The majestic central alley is lined with ancient olive trees and two thousand rose bushes. The Menzeh Pavilion offers a peaceful setting in which to relax and let your mind wander. Dozens of orange and lemon trees stand in perfectly straight lines. Here and there, cactuses of all shapes and sizes bask in the sun.
Plentiful trees, plants and flowers
700 orange trees, 5,000 rose bushes, 21 cactus species, 6 palm trees species and 200 olive trees – impressive numbers, but together they combine to create a myriad of colours, fragrances, shapes and textures! Lemon trees, jacarandas, bougainvillea, amaranth, agaves, prickly pear trees and more. Each flowerbed and each orchard burst with beauty, filled with the perfect gifts of nature! The gardens of La Mamounia are unique and wonderfully natural, despite the fact that they have been crafted by the hands of passionate gardeners for almost a century!
These enchanting gardens evolve and are transformed with each passing day and season.
In the heart of
The Hotel's Vegetable Garden
Take a stroll through the gardens with their flower beds and copses. Beyond the Menzeh Pavilion, on either side of the alley with its ancient olive trees (some of which are 700 years old), explore one of the treasures of La Mamounia: a superb 1,500 m2 (16145.86ft2) vegetable garden. Here, gardeners and chefs come together to enjoy their shared passion – the fruits of the earth.
You will find aromatic plants, such as coriander, fragrant verbena and Madagascar lemongrass, spices, carrots of various kinds, tomatoes (from Russia, Crimea and thirteen other varieties), leeks, beetroot, and more – A festival of shapes and colours, and as many promises of natural flavours . We should not forget to mention Borji mint, the essential ingredient for Moroccan tea! A palette of flavours which our Chefs prepare for guests in their Moroccan, Italian and French cuisine.
