Greeting from Marrakech. Since my visit at the end of April, I have been working hard on editing these pictures. So without further ado, I’m going to dive straight into the first experience which was our stay at the Movenpick hotel. The hotel is located in the Hivernage district of the contemporary Marrkech, between the walls of the old city and the Menara Airport. This is a popular hotel spot, away from the intensity and crows of the medina, next to the olive gardens (Oliveraie), and with enough space for the hotel grounds and amenities to spread out.
Soak in a luxurious argan-oil bubble bath while watching the sunset in your comfy hotel tub or be pampered at the spa with a choice of traditional Moroccan treatments.
Eat at the Saray restaurant. Which combines international and traditional Moroccan cuisine. The photogenic décor features Moroccan decorated plates. And if you fall for these hard, you can pick some up in the local souqs. Try the mint tea, brewed from fresh mint leaves, with added sugar for the sweetness. It’s a local must, and is offered in most places you will visit.
The hotel is located in the new part of town, with many modern amenities. Menara mall close by will have you covered for most essentials. You can visit the olive gardens (Oliveraie) nearby and many cafes for some variety. The train station (Gare de Marrakech) is only a 10 minute walk away in case you want to explore further afield.
