Luxury Morocco Holidays

Souks and sands

Morocco

Morocco offers something for everyone: bustling cities, soaring mountains, beautiful beaches and, of course, the desert. A fabulous fusion of Africa and Arabia, Morocco is a true delight to the senses, where you’ll be enchanted by spice markets and a kaleidoscope of colours. Known as the Red City thanks to its rose-coloured 12th century walls, Marrakech is alive with energy. Its souks are the real draw here: pyramids of spices, snake charmers and colourful carpets all beg to be discovered. There are plenty of opportunities to relax, too, as the city is also home to a variety of picturesque royal gardens.

If you’re looking to escape to the beach, Morroco’s top seaside resort, Agadir, boasts a long crescent of golden sand on the Atlantic coast. It’s perfect for golf enthusiasts too, with five pristine golf courses nearby. Or, for a more laid back beach vibe, head to Essaouira, where you’ll find an amazing dining scene and a picturesque fishing harbour. Alternatively, head south to discover the Atlas Mountains - a staggering mountain range which spans across Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Here, you’ll find snow capped peaks, awe inspiring valleys and one of the only ski resorts in Africa.

Luxury holidays in Morocco

Holidays in Morocco promise stunning vistas and exciting medinas, all wrapped up in timeless tradition and contemporary luxury. Indulge in Morocco’s mouth-watering cuisine, such as lamb tangine or zaalouk - a delicious aubergine and tomato dish. Be sure to treat yourself to a Hammam spa or two, a luxurious Arabian treatment which will leave you feeling cleansed and revitalised. Morocco also offers incredible shopping opportunities, with upmarket boutiques and traditional markets selling anything from colourful handmade rugs to fine silverware.

Sovereign offers an exciting range of luxury hotels in Morocco. The Four Seasons Marrakech provides an elegant and contemporary retreat, with views of the Atlas Mountains and Menara Gardens. Head to the Heure Bleue Palais in Essaouira to find a luxurious, riad style accommodation with a rooftop terrace offering stunning panoramic views. Or, choose to stay in the beautiful Atlas Mountains at Kasbah Tamadot, where you’ll be graced with amazing views across the valleys and can even stay in a traditional Berber tent.

Destinations in Morocco
Agadir
Agadir is a modern city that sprawls out along the south-west coast of Morocco, where a sandy bay and golf courses sweep up towards the snow-dusted Atlas Mountains.
Atlas Mountains

The Atlas Mountains are a rugged wilderness of soaring peaks and deep-cut valleys. But despite this remote feel, the region is bright with character-packed Berber villages and boutique hotels.

Marrakech
Marrakech is a rose-tinted city in central Morocco. It’s an irresistible mix of rich imagery – expect mosaicked mosques, royal orange orchards, smoky souks, riad restaurants and timeworn backstreets.
Essaouira
Essaouira is Morocco’s chilled-out beach resort. You can expect a breezy beach, a relaxed medina and a vibrant fishing harbour.
Flight Information

Morocco is around 3 hours 30 minutes from the UK.

When to go

There are no two ways about it: Morocco is a scorcher. Summers can get up to 40°C in July and August, although in coastal areas like Agadir, you’ve got the sea breeze taking the edge off. The heat is more tolerable in spring and autumn, when averages hover in the mid-20s. Remember to pack a jacket, though – things can cool down rapidly once the sun goes down.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Morocco.

Tipping

There are no specific rules for tipping in Morocco. An upmarket restaurant may add on a service charge, so check your bill carefully. Otherwise, aim to leave around 10%. In taxis, it’s acceptable to just round up the fare. It’s a good idea to have some small change on you for paying taxis and tipping guides.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Morocco is Arabic. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
