Labyrinths of souks, beautiful textiles and gardens galore make Marrakech an appealing destination. Besides our trek to the desert, we only had time visit Marrakech. I have heard of so many other great cities in this beautiful country that I encourage you to explore more if time permits. Here is my guide of Marrakech…
La Mamounia- A beautiful resort set on acres of land. The location is close to the city yet all the land makes you feel like you’re in your own Moroccan world while you’re there. Don’t miss the hammam! One of the best spa experiences I have ever had.
Riad Dix-Neuf- If you’re looking for something more boutique, I suggest you stay at a Riad. A Riad is traditional Moroccan house turned hotel with stunning courtyards. Riad Dix-Neuf was so cute! The location was close to the main square and right next to the souks! If souk shopping if your main priority, this is the place to be. I personally would recommend stay at a resort a little bit away from the city, but thats up to you!
Souk- This one is a given I know, but I have to say it! It is very large, I highly recommend getting a tour guide for an hour or two. Otherwise, you will be lost somewhere in the labyrinths and turned off. After your guided tour, you will get the hang of it and can come back for hours!
Le Comptoir- When you walk through the doors of Le comptoir, you feel the sultry side of Marrakech. With the candlelit dinner and the belly dancing, it is dining experience you don’t want to miss.
Yves Saint Laurent Majorelle Garden- Yves Saint Laurent’s garden y’all! Need I say more? The french designer wasn’t joking around about Morocco. Come see the majorelle blue come to life! The photo ops are endless!
Our main goal for Morocco this time around was the Sahara tour. Read more about that here. Marrakech was just the perfect apres desert treat 🙂 What cities in Morocco are your favorite?
