Brion Gysin( b.1916-1986 )
Born in England, raised in Canada, BRION GYSIN was a multifaceted artist, writer, and inventor, whose creative output in Morocco spanned painting, drawing, and writing. A key figure in the Beat Generation, best known for his avant-garde cut-up method of improvised prose, which he developed alongside friend, WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS.
~ “Marrakech is a magical and mythical place, a city that is truly alive, with a unique energy. It's like no other place I've ever been.”

Where creativity flows
Take a moment and let yourself be inspired by Brion at the vintage style writing desk below Refik Anadol's mesmerising 'Machine Hallucinations'.
Into another realm
Enjoy a view out into our shaded third courtyard, rife with foliage and filled with the sounds of our trickling waterfall.
"It’s an oasis of serenity and artistic inspiration. The Brion room is a beautiful mix of modern design and traditional Moroccan elements, making it the perfect place to relax and recharge."
