Guests enter Four Seasons Hotel Casablanca through an antique brass Moroccan door. At the reception area, there is a terrace with ocean views. There are layered rugs, Spanish oak panels and polished plaster walls along the corridors. The theme continues into guestrooms with the additions of stone, brass and porcelain design elements.

In addition to technologies, the rooms have a new lighting system and fully customizable Four Seasons Bed. In suites, color accents are provided by Zellige tiles, and in the Royal Suite there is a double-sided fireplace in the living area, as well as a terrace.

The Atlantic Ballroom now has crystal chandeliers and perforated Moroccan lanterns, as well as full height carved timber doors.

The Le Spa has a natural palette of cedar wood, locally-quarried stone and gold accents inspired by Morocco’s argan oil.

At Mint, the hotel’s tea lounge, G.A Design added seating areas surrounded by carved plaster walls and accented by Bedouin-style bench seating, embroidered cushions from Fez, and Berber carpets from Marrakech. There are also brass lanterns, ceramic pieces by Myriam Mourabit and traditional artefacts from the souks in the pastry and lobby areas.

The Mediterranean brasserie Bleu by EDG has an elliptical open cooking station, as well as additional crudo and other culinary stations arranged like sculptures in a space defined by curves inspired by the ocean waves seen through windows and glass-walled terrace. The color palette is bright, with white plaster paired with blue. Accents include traditional rugs with contemporary patterns, marble floors and banquette seating in brown leather upholstery.
