If you're searching for that mystical Arabian nights feel combined with luxurious settings, you're at right mindset travelling to Marrakech. I've had the pleasure visiting the pink Moroccan city twice.
A home away from home. No other cliche better describes this riad as a second home. One with pink walls, larger than life banana trees and the sweetest hosts you can imagine. We followed a cooking class with Fatima, enjoyed delicious home made dishes and slept like babies. Dar Attajmil is located in the old town (medina). It's a hidden gem, closed off behind a gigantic door.
Just a short drive from Marrakech lays the Agafay desert. It's not a sandy place like the Sahara, but a stone desert. Here, in the middle of nowhere, you can go glamping. Scarabeo Camp has a wide range of tents. Your own tent, the dining area, a chill out tent, a lunch spot with a view and several spots where you can relax and enjoy the quietness.
If there's one place in Marrakech that's absolute interior & exterior goals it's El Fenn. Purple velour couches, cacti, hand woven lounge beds and tiles everywhere. This place is a treat for all senses. I've had lunch and dinner here and both experiences were great.
Beldi Country Club
A short 15 minutes outside Marrakech and you're at the gates of BELDI Country Club. This place is massive. You can walk around the courtyard, garden, swimming pool, patio and glass house for hours without getting bored. Don't leave without getting your typical Moroccan breakfast!
Les Deux Tours
You can't go wrong with a private pool they must have thought at Les Deux Tours. So there we were, undecided about which pool to enjoy. The chef at the restaurant is quite known locally and serves a wide range of flavours - from Africa to Thailand.
