Morocco Hotels, Restaurants, Spas and More

Whether you're seeking inspiring art, exotic flavors, soothing beaches or hidden pirate coves, Morocco has something to offer even the most seasoned traveler. A trip to a souk, a traditional market, treats visitors to vivid and colorful crafts and clothing sold alongside herbal medicines proclaiming to cure any ailment. Combined with the hustle and bustle of the haggling crowds, regional music and the exoticism of henna painters and snake charmers, the Moroccan markets are not to be missed. For a more relaxing time, take a trip to the local beaches and sunbathe in the warm Mediterranean climate. The incredibly diverse geography lends itself to a broad range of outdoor activities, from cross-country skiing in the Atlas Mountains to camel trekking in the Sahara. The Moroccan cuisine is a mix of Berber, Spanish, Corsican, Portuguese, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and African styles, creating a truly unique and flavorful experience that travelers won't soon forget.

Dar Rhizlane
Dar Rhizlane
The privately owned Dar Rhizlane bills itself as a guest palace, and certainly lives up to the assertion, but on a far more intimate level than Buckingham and Versailles. Hide away amid the palms, steal a kiss beneath a wisteria-draped arch, or sip evening cocktails in the glow of the candlelit pool.


The Imperial City of Marrakech is Morocco's foremost tourist destination, with its exotic red buildings, rose gardens and palm groves, all set off by a backdrop of the dramatic, snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
