SCARABEO CAMP

SCARABEO CAMP (link) (instagram) During my time in Morocco, my mantra was to engage – engage all five senses in every experience to fully remember and experience the beauty and culture of the place. The engagement at Scarabeo Camp was memorable and breathtaking. From the sandy sights to the calming sounds, every sense is entertained in a majestic and picturesque way. Located 45 minutes from Marrakech, Scarabeo Camp has facilities in their “Stone Desert” experience in Agafay, or try their mobile camp experience that lets you plan where to go. A 35 kilometer drive will transport you from the hustling city to a sandy getaway that...

KASBAH DU TOUBKAL

KASBAH DU TOUBKAL (link) I’m rounding out the Marrakech experience with my stay at Kasbah Du Toubkal. Located approximately two hours from Marrakech (via car through a scenic drive), the Kasbah Du Toubkal is one of National Geographic’s unique lodges of the world. I stayed at the Kasbah for two nights (but I wish I had an extra night to climb the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa), and everything was a beautiful and cultural experience. Staying at the Kasbah Du Toubkal is a fully immersive, local village experience that I highly recommend. Looking up into the sky at night felt like I could see the entire unive...

EL FENN MARRAKECH

EL FENN (link) (instagram) Marrakech is a gorgeous city that’s rich in history and culture, and when you visit, you need to find a place to stay that feeds your curiosity and keeps up with your spirit. The El Fenn Hotel is the perfect spot – it’s a luxurious yet laid back hotel that is a sight for sore eyes and takes care of you in every way. I was impressed with all the upholstery and lighting throughout the space. The colors are vivid, bold, and modern and each detail is thoughtful, which probably explains their Mr & Mrs Smith Award for Best Dressed Hotel. Owned by Richard Branson’s sister, El Fenn is conveniently close to ...

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. Before arriving to Royal Mansour, I knew that Morocco was famous for it’s amazing views and architecture, but I don’t think anything could have prepared me for the opulence that is this hotel. 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...
