Sunshine, souks and snake charmers, Madame micebook is off to find all three…
Named as a top ten destination by Global DMC partners for 2019, Morocco is staging something of a comeback following a few tricky years.
Tourist figures are showing a positive increase as luxury travellers seek out the finest accommodation that the destination has to offer – from intimate riads to stunning hotels.
More are on the way too with recent openings including the Barcelo Anfa Casablanca which brings an additional 206 rooms to the city. Set within a gloriously Art Deco hotel, guests can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool or enjoy a lazy morning on the terrace. Event profs should note the seven multifunctional event suites and a banqueting room for 350.
Meanwhile in Marrakech, dubbed the new Ibiza by GQ this autumn, developments continue to gather pace as the destination swings back in vogue. To capture the true essence of Marrakech, no trip is complete without an evening spent in the square, among the hustle and bustle of the locals, market traders and of course, the snake charmers.
Step back in to an authentic world in the latest boutique hotel on the block – the Riad Louhou, a traditional property offering five luxurious bedrooms, each decorated in traditional Moroccan style with monochrome rugs and gold throws.
And more properties are in the pipeline, with Marriott International planning to launch St Regis Tamuda Bay in 2020.
