Villa Mabrouka, British designer Jasper Conran’s second hotel in Morocco, is located in a beautiful house set within one of Tangier’s largest and most enchanting gardens, constantly alive with vibrant color, gentle breezes, birdsong and glittering views of the Strait of Gibraltar and the North Atlantic Ocean. 

While only moments from the bustle of the famous white city’s Kasbah and Medina, the intimate 12-room Villa Mabrouka has been transformed into a haven of tranquility and calm, a place to be immersed in the beauty of nature and attentive service. 

Once the secluded sanctuary of fashion legends Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Conran has meticulously transformed Villa Mabrouka from a former private home into a cossetting and elegant hotel. While respecting the spirited details Saint Laurent and Bergé introduced into the house while working with French interior designer Jacques Grange three decades ago, “I wanted to add my own lifetime of thoughts and expressions in a complementary way,” says Conran

I have always admired the way Saint Laurent and Bergé worked so diligently to draw attention to Morocco and to encourage its people and culture. My aim at all times has been to protect the magic of both the house and its ravishing gardens.
 In this, I have been very touched by the kindness and encouragement shown to me by Madison Cox, President of the Foundation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent (who also designed the original garden) and by the Moroccan authorities, whose enthusiasm for the project has been invaluable

Murano chandeliers, crenelated archways and beamed ceilings (some painted in the late designer’s signature shades of green and blue), and monochromatic marble floors are among the many touches created by Saint Laurent and Bergé that Conran has retained.
