Anniversary? Birthday? Naughty Weekend? As a destination for a romantic getaway Marrakech is difficult to beat – only 3 hours from London and with some of the most beautiful hotels in world…and at incredible value. Regularly visitors make the comparison between an equivalent standard of break in the UK and work out that even with the flights, Marrakech is much less expensive. And then there is the weather…
Arrive at Marrakech airport where your driver will meet you and take you straight to your hotel. The big challenge is which one for a romantic weekend, the Atlas Mountains or the Palmeraie are strong contenders but for pure style the riads in Marrakech win in our view. Lots to choose from and a favourite of ours is Riad Adore (Riad of love…) for pure style without breaking the budget.
Spend the next 2 days enjoying everything Marrakech has to offer. Take an early morning visit to the Majorelle gardens before it gets too hot and all the bus loads of tourists arrive. Spend afternoons visiting the various mosques and historical sites, not forgetting to indulge yourself with a traditional Moroccan exfoliation and massage in a local hammam.
We’d also suggest a day trip up into the Atlas Mountains to see a completely different side of Morocco just 60 minutes away – this can be for a gentle stroll, serious trekking or just a long lazy lunch with blistering views.
Lastly, and not to be missed is a dinner in one of Marrakech’s sumptuous restaurants in the evening. Le Foundouk, Tangia, and Dar Yacout are favourites for quality and style.
Our Driver will come and pick you up in time for the journey home. If you have a later flight then spend the morning in the souks topping up on bargains, or just relax on the roof terrace.
