Meet the Confluence of the Old and the New: Your Vacation Getaway to Morocco

Morocco is a country of dizzying diversity in Northern Africa. The country is a paradise for travellers. The cities and landscapes are some of the most eye-catching in the world-  the geography is as unique as it is diverse, with Mediterranean beaches in the north, the legendary Atlas Mountain ranges and the scintillating Sahara in the South. The rivers that flow down the Atlas Mountains offer beautiful lush river valleys. With everything that the wandering heart desires, whatever you’re looking for, ‘Seek and you shall receive’.

Morocco has become an extremely popular vacation destination even for a long weekend. Consequently the beach towns are packed with tourists in the summer months, cities are filled with guides and shopkeepers, and there are big plans to develop much of Morocco’s coastline with big resorts.

However, luxury in Morocco actually means an experience that is more native, more indigenous, and more of how the elite locals live. Most of the luxury hotels are actually refurbished traditional homes.

Best Time to Visit:

The best time to go is during the spring – April and May are seen as the months that offer the best weather for holidaying. Midsummer is to be avoided when travelling to the Saharan region. However, the hotter seasons are best for enjoying a vacation at the coastal cities of Essaouira and Rabat. These are some places in this extravagant country that you, as a traveller must visit.


1. Mazagan Beach Resort, Casablanca

Located on the outskirts of the city, the resort offers fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean, a luxury spa, a golf course, fitness centre and even a casino. Away from the madding crowd, this is a tranquil respite. The restaurants serve mouth-watering Mediterranean and Moroccan dishes as well as offering an extensive wine list. The city allows for a relaxing holiday away from the tourist centres such as Marrakech or Fez. It has a beautiful interior complete with water features and a roof that opens. Now isn’t that an eye-opener? The city is home to the modern fashion scene in the country.

2. Royal Mansour, Marrakech

Feel the full force of the heartbeat of the city as you approach the Royal Mansour’s gate. You will be greeted by traditional architecture, lush gardens and beautifully elegant riads. This luxury Marrakesh hotel’s design incorporates the elements of an authentic medina, where guests can walk around and discover sensualdelights. Luxurious riads have replaced the rooms and suites and twisting alleyways have replaced the corridors. The Royal Mansour Marrakech is the world’s only hotel establishment to deliver this unique concept.


1. Go sandboarding at Erg Chebbi


It’s one thing to soak up the splendour of the towering dunes of Erg Chebbi, located close to Merzouga, but it’s another thing entirely to whizz down the orange-hued dunes on a sandboard. Reaching up to 150 metres high, boarding down the sands is an exhilarating experience that’s certainly not for the faint-hearted!

2. Climb and hike through the Todra Gorge

Travellers in search of an adrenalin rush are sure to love tackling the sheer burnt-orange, dusky pink, and pale grey walls of the magnificent Todra Gorge. Those who prefer to keep both feet firmly on the ground can hike through the stunning gorge. The walls tower some 300 metres over the narrow ravine and a clear river adds to the beauty.

What are you waiting for? Set sail for a journey into the land of the Arabian Nights. Because in Morocco, there is beauty behind every corner and magic in all its ways.
