Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, a brand in luxury hospitality, and Atlantic Coast Hospitality, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi-based real estate company Q Holding, have announced plans to open Four Seasons Hotel Rabat at Kasr Al Bahr in Morocco this year.
Kasr Al Bahr served as royal summer palace that was built in 19th century. It subsequently became a military hospital before its closure in 1999.
Four Seasons Hotel Rabat at Kasr Al Bahr will provide 204 luxuriously decorated guestrooms and suites overlooking the Atlantic Ocean after substantial renovations of the 5ha cliffside property.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts global business development and portfolio management president Bart Carnahan said: “As Four Seasons continues to grow its presence in Morocco, we are proud to build upon the success of our existing properties in Marrakech and Casablanca while introducing a complementary experience, this time in the nation’s capital city.

Q Holding director Malik Awan said: “As we transform Kasr Al Bahr for the future, we are proud to showcase Rabat’s history and culture while creating a world-class hospitality experience for all who visit.”
Four Seasons Hotel Rabat at Kasr Al Bahr will feature seven restaurants and lounges, a spa with luxurious treatment rooms, an indoor pool, five outdoor resort-style pools, and wide conference and event space.
META Atelier d’Architecture architect Karim Chakor will oversee the hotel’s restoration, while Roger Nazarian and Associates have been appointed for interior decor, landscaping, and other aspects of the property.
