One highly rated restaurant
Although there’s only one eatery onsite, you won’t get bored of its offerings. Dine like the locals surrounded by unique Moroccan flare such as cushioned seating, palace-like architecture and shisha pipes. Serving gourmet traditional cuisine, don’t be afraid to try delicacies such as slow-cooked tagine, also known as meat stew. Chicken preserved with lemon and olives is another firm favourite, alongside grilled sardines.
Breakfast is usually included in the price of your stay, which is an a la carte service. Don’t worry, there’s also a bar waiting with colourful cocktails, steamy hot beverages and fruity soft drinks.
Your well-being is covered
Experts in all things serene, choose to lounge on double cushioned sunloungers by the spotless pool with a waiter at your beck and call. Alternatively, a day at the spa will release any tension with hot tubs facing the snow-capped mountains, traditional purification rituals and a Turkish hammam. Treatments include head to toe massages, body scrubs as well as facials for dry skin and ageing.
Guests can use the gym for free and there’s entertainment from dusk till dawn, but other activities such as horse riding, cycling and hiking expeditions may come at an additional charge. Those with children can take advantage of the hotel’s board games, books and DVDs.
It’s safe to say you’re hidden away among nature’s finest, soaring peaks in the backdrop and rolling vineyards as your surroundings – this is one of Morocco’s best-kept secrets. However, Marrakech is only 40 minutes away and the airport is just a 30-minute car journey.
You can easily book an excursion or two at the hotel if you fancy a change of scenery. The list is endless from hot air balloons, adventures in Ourika Valley, horseback rides through the nearby villages of Kasbah and quad rides through the dunes of Merzouga.
