Mama Shelter Saray Casablanca – Mama’s first property in Africa

Mama Shelter will open her doors in Casablanca in 2024.


Offering an urban experience in harmony with the dynamism of the city, Mama Shelter Saray Casablanca is set to be amongst the most festive and trendy establishments in Morocco with unique interior decoration, high-quality homemade menus and ambitious entertainment calendar.

A multi-component project, it includes five-storey buildings with high-standing apartments, offices, the Mama Shelter Saray Casablanca hotel, shops and leisure areas. Featuring 92 rooms and 49 apartments designed in Mama’s signature sassy and flamboyant design, the hotel will be a destination for Casablanca residents and visitors to the city. Skilful engineering will integrate nature throughout the project with hanging gardens and green spaces.

The hotel will have three swimming pools, including longest swimming pool in the city, restaurant, a rooftop lounge with breathtaking view of Casablanca, indoor and outdoor fitness equipment, as well as spaces for conviviality and sharing such as the yoga area and the Chill & Lounge. Additionally, Mama Shelter Saray Casablanca will also house a comfortable and relaxing meeting room to stimulate the creativity of visitors, multi-use events spaces which include a terrace, and exceptional events programming for its guests.

“We favor differentiating offers that bring novelty, freshness and impact, Saray is the perfect illustration of this. It is a pioneering project that gives pride of place to functional and recreational diversity for a living environment neighbourhood centred on the human. Our partnership with Mama Shelter perpetuates this philosophy while rewriting the codes of luxury in the industry of lifestyle hospitality in Morocco. We are happy to be actors of this great adventure” – Khaled K Al-MASHAAN, CEO of ALARGAN International.

“We are extremely excited about the first Mama Shelter in Morocco, and the first in Africa. We know our brand carries the fundamental values of Moroccan culture, such as the generosity that our guests find in our gastronomic approach, the joy of living and sharing with friends and family. We look forward to introducing this beautiful city to Mama Shelter, and everything she has to offer. We have the ambition to make the brand a vector of local hospitality as we did in London, Rome, Lisbon, Belgrade and Los Angeles.” – Cédric Gobilliard, Brand COO of Mama Shelter & Head of Central & Southern Europe at Ennismore.

A partnership with ALARGAN International, Mama Shelter Saray Casablanca will be Ennismore’s first property in Africa. The first mixed-use real estate project in Morocco, Saray is located in the dynamic, residential district of Princesses in the vibrant heart of Casablanca and was designed as a balanced living space that reconciles urban life with nature. Mama Shelter, set to be an integral part of Saray with both a hotel and branded private residences, will open in 2025.
