MARRAKECH, MOROCCO: Four Seasons Hotel Open as of June 2011

As if there weren't enough "exotic destinations" to consider when planning your next trip, the venerable Four Seasons hotel chain is about to open a property in Marrakech, Morocco.

The hotel's on-line brochure describes the five-star property this way:

An easy walk from the ancient ramparts of the Medina and across from the Menara Gardens, the rose-hued walls of Four Seasons Hotel Marrakech enfold a resort and spa in 40 acres of sunlit Moorish gardens – filled with birdsong, fountains and infinite rewards for families, couples or groups. This elegant Moroccan medina – with its light, contemporary touch – is calming and comfortable, private yet inspiringly open. Revel in savvy Four Seasons service as you relax, reflect and reconnect. Discover a refreshing new way to experience exotic Marrakech.

The Four Seasons' Web Site also offers a brief overview of Marrakech and a recommendation of things to do in Two Days in Marrakech.
