Fairmont Taghazout Bay, Morocco


The Fairmont Taghazout Bay is a coastal luxury five-star resort that sits within the beautiful Taghazout Bay. Its breath-taking views and beautiful gardens link the various hotel and F&B elements with an adjoining Fairmont operated villa complex within the overall site.

The stunning, simple and contemporary Moroccan architecture designed by Abdessamad Achrai (Local Architect) and HKS (Concept/Masterplan) and the soft and captivating landscape, designed by Scape Design are complimented by lighting providing both enhancement and theatre to the overall site as well as a practical approach to guest orientation with key features and elements illuminated at night. The elegant interiors designed by Wimberly Interiors connect beautifully with the outside scene, dovetailing with terraces and other spaces to reinforce the seamless inside-outside aspect of the spaces.

The lighting approach was to use a minimal palette of lighting elements in key spaces to enhance the interior material palette throughout. Key elements such as interesting Objet d’art, stunning large artworks and feature food displays and bars throughout were carefully integrated with lighting to showcase each of the spaces both inside and out.
