Morocco Preferred Hotels
Choosing awe-inspiring hotels is an art. It takes time, patience, research, and lots of travel. We have visited most of our hotels. If we haven’t been there, we’ve had conversations with locals on the ground and with partners who have checked out the properties. Our Morocco list is not yet complete but here is our work-in-progress. Enjoy!
Situated in the spectacular Atlas Mountains in Morocco, the award-winning Kasbah Tamadot was bought by Sir Richard Branson during one of his famous ballooning expeditions. Each of the 28 rooms and suites has been individually decorated to reflect the beautiful architecture of the building and features antiques from all over the world. According to Sir Richard Branson, there is no greater place for rest and relaxation. Why we like it? We love the reclusive yet close to village intrigue of this property. Set in the mystical arid mountains yet surrounded with a veritable garden of Eden, near friendly Berber tribes and with a fabulous pool to lounge around, we think this property is for every discerning client.
Riad Fez Relais Chateaux
This luxury resort palace is an authentic example of example of Hispanic-Moorish architecture, sculpted doors and zelliges on the walls, stucco arcades and marble basins. It offers magical views of the sun rising over the Fès Medina and the Atlas mountains. Why we like it? We love the trendy lounge bar, sophisticated cuisine, Hammams and massages, and fountains. We love the mix of historic traditions and contemporary conveniences. This property is charming and for those who like a smaller more intimate and local experience. Each room is uniquely designed.
La Mamounia is legendary palace that ithat s part of the fabric of the history of Marrakesh,. Located within a few minutes walk from the Medina and colourful souk. The service is excellent everywhere but at the pool area where it can be a bit slow if you are hoping for a towel or an umbrella. Why we like it? Faboulous lobby, traditional furnishings, Hamman, and a great indoor and outdoor area for per-dinner drinks. Rooms are unique and interesting, albeit a bit dark – originally deigned that way to keep out the heat. Buffet breakfast is amazing and the gardens are spectacular.
