Marrakech Magic

Marrakech has been on our bucket list of places to visit for a while, and with both of us having a free diary at the beginning of the month we decided to go for it and book a few days of R & R. With a flight of just over 3 hours & Sunny weather near enough guaranteed between March through to November,

 

Marrakech is an ideal destination for a quick getaway…

 

Next step was deciding on the perfect place to stay, with an overwhelming choice of luxury hotels and boutique Riads we looked to Limelight Escapes for advice on the perfect location. We decided on La Mamounia, situated a walk away from the bustling Medina and a Marrakech institution, also an Instagram hit thanks to the picture perfect decor. We sunbathed, ate amazing food & drank cocktails under the African sun whilst listening to the enchanting Call to Prayer.

Sleep…

 

We decided on the legendary hotel La Mamounia, situated just a stone’s throw from the famous Jamaa El Fna Square. A real haven of luxury with traditional Moroccan decor. Our room was super luxurious and overlooked the impeccable gardens with views across the Red City. With 4 restaurant choices, our favourite being the Moroccan for its delicious food and even better decor. We loved sipping cocktails on the terrace and lazing around the pool. It was everything we were looking for from our flying visit to Marrakech.

Eat…

 

As we were only in the City for 4 nights and La Mamounia has an incredible choice of restaurants, we didn’t venture out much. But on our last night, we were recommended to try Dar Yacout and we’re so glad we did. A stunning restaurant from the moment you reach the big wooden door to the minute you leave with a full belly. Arrive early and head up to the roof terrace to watch the sun setting on the red city, we were lucky enough to catch the Call of Prayer whilst enjoying a cocktail on the rustic rooftop. Dinner is served in a romantic setting around a pool with rose petals strewn across every surface. No menu was handed out, just plates and plates of delicious food. A fantastic atmosphere and one not to be missed.

Shop…

 

The Souks of course! We took a guide with us so experienced none of the uncomfortable situations people associate with Traditional Moroccan Souks. We enjoyed strolling around taking in the sights, sounds & smells whilst browsing the incredible selection of rugs, crockery and baskets on offer. We both purchased a cute little bag as a memento of our trip.

Visit…

 

No trip to Marrakech is complete without a Camel Ride. The hotel recommended the best place to go, and once we arrived and Lou was satisfied the camels were fed & watered, looked after properly and had a nice home she hopped on for a little ride, Em was more comfortable standing next to one for a pic! We also popped along to Saint Laurent’s Memorial Gardens, a stunning place and well worth a quick visit.

Wear…

 

It was super humid so bikinis and cover-ups for the day and cool Summer Dresses by night. We were told we didn’t have to cover our shoulders at the Souks as it’s a free country but we would recommend doing so to respect tradition.
