MANDARIN ORIENTAL MARRAKECH

by - 14:23




I'm spending this summer in Paris and quite frankly, I'm looking forward to a few calm weeks ahead. I've had the most amazing year so far and as I'll be walking the streets of my favourite city, I'll think of all the amazing adventures I've experienced. One destination that will stay in my mind for a bit longer will definitely be Morocco. I've been dreaming of visiting Marrakech for years and although I've heard mixed opinions about the city, I couldn't wait to make my own.

Only three hour flight from Paris to the fourth largest city in Morocco... this June, I finally made it there!

And the verdict? I love Marrakech!

I stayed at the absolutely stunning Mandarin Oriental and if you haven't seen my Snapchat from the time I was there, I'm not sure I'll be able to express myself through the written words clearly enough.

The most beautiful oasis in the middle of Moroccan desert, I fell for Mandarin Oriental like for no other place ever before. I stayed at a villa, Yes I know, how crazy! Just me, myself & I ... in a villa with a large swimming pool, jacuzzi, kitchen area for a chef to cook for you! ... so private and luxurious ...  no words can do this place enough justice. I took hundreds of photos of the stunning rose fields framing the whole 20 hectare resort (there are over 100,000 fragrant roses), the smell was unbelievable! 

In my opinion, this hotel is made for adult couples or honeymooners where you'll get privacy combined with a 5* hotel service, something absolutely unbeatable! My main tips would be to try the SPA treatment, visit the Medina (only 10 minutes drive from the hotel), have a private chef cook right in front of you a super delicious Moroccan barbecue and spent as much time in the pool and jacuzzi as your body can stand. 

I hope you'll enjoy this first part of photos I took during my stay in Marrakech and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave me a comment.  xx

I'd love to thank Mandarin Oriental for this unforgettable experience!

  3. You say you love Marrakesh (which, by the way is not the capital, Rabat is) but did you even see the main town center or marketplace? Did you meet the locals? Easy enough when you're tucked away in your private villa...

    1. Oh, thank you for correcting my mistake! It's Rabat of course :) Yes, I've visited the medina and met many locals, did some shopping on the market and can't wait to share the photos I took in my next blog post. As I said, this was the first part of my blog post, I wanted to concentrate on the accommodation and in the second part I'll talk about the rest :)
