Private island and a secluded forest among spa settings for three 2016 Oberoi hotels

by Jane Kitchen | 19 Feb 2016

The Oberoi Group is opening three hotels in 2016 in Morocco, India and United Arab Emirates.

Located 30 minutes from Dubai’s airport, The Oberoi, Al Zorah will be a luxury eco-destination nestled within 247 acres of forest, with a long beachfront, lagoons and mangroves. The hotel – designed by Italian architects Lissoni Associati – will include an ultra-modern layout with 113 villas, suites and penthouses.

The spa at Al Zorah is inspired by the architecture of ancient Medina, and includes private therapy suites and hammam rooms accessed along naturally lit, open-air corridors dotted with trees. It also includes a 50m (82ft) pool, gym and children’s activity area.

The Oberoi, Marrakech will be set within 25 acres of citrus orchards and ancient olive groves, and offers views of the Atlas Mountains. The resort will have 77 villas, each with a private pool in a landscaped garden, and traditional Moroccan architecture.

The spa at The Oberoi, Marrakech will occupy a private island on a lake within the resort, and features Moroccan hammams and ayurvedic treatments, as well as daily yoga classes. It also will include an indoor swimming pool as well as a large outdoor pool set in the lush gardens with views of the Atlas Mountains, plus a fitness centre. The designer for the project has not yet been revealed.

The Oberoi Sukhvilas, located 30 minutes from Chandigarh, India, will be surrounded by more than 8,000 acres of protected natural forest, and features traditional Indian pavilions, landscaped courtyards and modern design elements. It will include 60 villas, rooms and luxury tents with handcrafted design features.
