No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
A state of the art complex and a luxury destination in itself, with spacious grounds, a championship golf course and a host of dining venues. Many conference and meeting groups use the facilities but these do not affect the leisure guests.
A calm, relaxed atmosphere prevails in the communal areas and grounds and many visitors appreciate its location away from the hubbub of the city centre and Medina areas. Ample parking for those hiring cars.
A wide one-way drive leads from the Palmeraie Circuit and an impressive arched gateway with a security lodge to the main revolving door entrance, with shops and dining outlets along one side.
A simple entrance is located next to a snack bar terrace. Steps lead down from the lobby area to the grounds and pool areas with paths connecting the accommodation areas.
Many of the wide, sunny balconies and terraces of the long straddling accommodation blocks overlook the pool and a spa facility is located to one side. A car hire outlet and a golf shop are located to one side of the main entrance.
Property type: Hotel

Palatial and distinctly upmarket lobby is covered in traditional Moroccan tiles with a domed ceiling and magnificent gleaming chandelier. A central fountain adds to the splendour and elegant murals are located behind the reception alcoves. A small coffee shop with a terrace is approached through a narrow arched corridor.
Cool, airy lounges look out on to the gardens whilst authentic decor and richly coloured fabrics feature in several cosy corners, useful for relaxing and light socialising.
Sumptuous bar has thick pile carpets, glass domed ceiling and elegant brown/beige sofas and chairs. Japanese restaurant has modern furnishings whilst an Italian option is intimate and equally refined. A club-like international restaurant has a plasma TV screen and a central island with tall stools and other modern furnishings.
Impressive grounds, like the restaurant options, are a standout feature of this property. Wide dining terraces overlook one side of the pool and gardens, with wide sloping paths skirting the rear of the pool area. Poolside area is spacious with a calm, peaceful atmosphere.
A good number of parasols and luxurious sunloungers with towels are scattered around the wide sunbathing areas, with colourful plants and shrubs adding a touch more elegance and style.
State of the art spa offers a wide range of health related treatments and options for guests to pamper themselves with.
Area Type: In the Palmeraie area, 9km north of the Medina and surrounded by palm groves and golf facilities. There are other smaller properties in the same area but little in the way of tourist attractions apart from horse and camel rides. Taxis wait outside the entrance and the property also provides an efficient courtesy bus service to the old city and airport.
