DAR AHLAM

DAR AHLAM (link) The philosophy of the Dar Ahlam hotel is that it’s “a place with no one around.” Created by Thierry Teyssier, the hotel is located on the edge of the Moroccan desert. While the hotel consists of 14 rooms and the service is excellent, you truly feel alone. And while I think that the world alone oftentimes has a negative connotation, in this case, being alone was an amazing feeling. And a good one too. Being comfortable with yourself and enjoying your own company is one of the best ways of being at ease and finding peace in your surroundings. Dar Ahlam was peaceful and incredible – the location was an experienc...

ROYAL MANSOUR

ROYAL MANSOUR (link) (instagram) Marrakech is an imperial city, one of the main four in Morocco, and is one of the busiest cities in Africa. It’s a major economic centre and also a tourist favorite because of the hustle and bustle of the medina and proximity to the mountains.

The Royal Mansour mimics Moroccan royalty and is a luxurious experience that I will remember dearly. Their personal promise is to inspire “happiness, wealth, and p...

Situated 35 minutes from the Marrakech airport, the hotel is actually located in the Atlas Mountains, which separate the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert. When I heard about it’s location, I already knew I would experiencing some amazing views. On the hilltop of the Ourika Valley, you can see down to vast groves of oli...

AMAN VENICE

AMAN VENICE (instagram) (link) My most recent trip to Venice was a feast for the eyes – from the hotel to the canals and the magic of the city, it was beautiful at every turn. Aman is one of the world’s most luxurious resorts, and their Venice property was amazing. Located at the Palazzo Papadopoli on the Grand Canal, the hotel is majestic and romantic (like Venice) with meticulous building details like gilded ceilings and leather wall coverings. Each room at the Aman Venice has original architecture from the palazzo’s heritage, making each one unique. It’s modern, minimal and refined all at the same time, and all the details...
