Morocco is a gateway to Africa, and a country of dizzying diversity. Here you’ll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality.
Heaven on Earth
Picnic in the ruins of the Roman Empire’s most southerly outpost, weave through Fez’s labyrinthine medina alleyways and stargaze in the sublime darkness of the Sahara.
We can’t quite put our finger on it, but there’s just something so irresistible about Morocco. Whether it’s the contrast of the wide open desert with the labyrinthine passages of the medina or the allure of the coast whipped by Atlantic winds, we couldn’t say. What has become clear to us though is the enriching effect that a luxury holiday in Morocco has on the soul. Submerging your senses and gaining a new perspective; that is the power of Morocco.
Morocco is an exotic country of wild beaches, snow-capped mountains and vast desert regions in North African. Lying between the ocean and the dunes of the Sahara Desert, its cities are a patchwork of extravagant ancient architecture, modern high-rises and labyrinthine alleys leading to souks.

With a diverse natural landscape, Morocco provides plenty of outdoor adventures. Hike and bike the trails of the High Atlas Mountains.

Ski down the runs of Oukaimeden or Mischliffen, two winter ski resorts within the Atlas Mountains
