Les Deux Tours Hotel, Morocco

Les Deux Tours Hotel, Morocco

“If you look really carefully, you’ll find goats somewhere around here”, general manager Petra of Les Deux Tours Hotel squats down and gives this intriguing ‘task’ to our daughters. In the end, finding the animals turns out to be quite hard as the hotel grounds stretch out over a huge terrain with large palm trees and all sorts of hidden nooks and crannies. Not only good hiding places for goats but also for kids on a discovery tour. Read more...

Tigmiza Suites & Pavillons, Morocco

Tigmiza Suites & Pavillons, Morocco

It took a whole day before our daughters discovered the third swimming pool. That’s not as strange as it sounds because Tigmiza Suites & Pavillons is located in the middle of a palm oasis stretching over no less than 6 acres. Just 20 minutes from the chaos of Marrakesh, this is a place of retreat and relaxation. Built in the traditional Kabash style, the complex is pretty as a picture. Although it seems as if the sand-coloured buildings have been here for ages, the luxury boutique hotel was built only 10 years ago. This doesn’t mean the hotel has no soul. On the contrary. At the end of our first day, we can say – while we are enjoying our delicious Mojitos and special kid-friendly cocktails – that it feels like staying with relatives. Well-to-do relatives, that is, as the level of comfort is extremely high. Read more...

Le Jardin des Douars, Morocco

Le Jardin des Douars, Morocco

In Morocco, the term “Douar” means a small, traditional village [or] a group of rural dwellings consisting of dozens or sometimes even hundreds of houses. Le Jardin des Douars Hotel can be better described as an oasis. Situated in the hills not far from the seaside town of Essaouira, this splendid hotel is built in the local Ksar style and looks out over the luscious river Oued Ksob. Read more...

Fellah Hotel, Morocco

Fellah Hotel, Morocco

A wilderness playground with a tree house, an old, bright yellow Mercedes, goats and donkeys and as eye-catcher in the lobby a shrine consisting of kitschy statues and images around a vintage poster of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not your typical hotel description, is it? Read more...

Royal Mansour, Morocco

Royal Mansour, Morocco

Dad, how many other people are sleeping here?” our oldest daughter wonders in amazement as she absorbs the room. We have just been welcomed by one of the butlers in, as turns out, our very own Riad. This isn’t your average hotel room, nor a suite, but an identical copy of a traditional Moroccan house. That’s not really surprising because we are in Marrakesh, one of the most beautiful cities in this North African country.

And we sleep in style indeed as the Royal Mansour hotel also serves as one of the official guesthouses of King Mohammed VI of Morocco. Read more...
