8 Romantic Honeymoon Hotels

Are you looking for special place for your honeymoon?

Morocco is a magical place for honeymooners. With a mix of tradition and modernism, you can feel transported to another era. Walking down old streets filled with handcrafted goods takes you back hundreds of years, while your hotel or riad accommodations offer you all the luxury of this century.

When you book a trip to one of these eight romantic hotels in Morocco, you’ll find that not only is love in the air, but romance blooms year-round. As you plan your honeymoon to Morocco, make sure you consider some of these luxurious hotels.

Kasbah Tamadot

Our first romantic hotel in Morocco is the Kasbah Tamadot. Nestled in the High Atlas Mountains, this breathtaking destination is owned by non other than famed balloon traveler, Sir Richard Branson.

With just 27 guest rooms, each is filled with antiques. For an even more memorable stay, choose from one of the luxurious Berber Tents. Some even include private plunge pools for the ultimate secluded extravagance. For an over the top honeymoon, splurge on a master suite. It offers a scaled down version of the Kasbah, with unmatched views, a private pool, and a large sweeping terrace.

Allow yourselves the time to get lost in the exotic gardens and courtyards of Kasbah Tamadot. Take a pause in your day to dip your toes in the resort’s outdoor infinity pool with magnificent views of the mountain range.

Enjoy a cocktail in the beautiful Asmoun Lounge, with its fabric draped ceiling and richly appointed furnishings. Whether day or night, you can take in the naturally beautiful surroundings from the exotic Roof Terrace.

Other options for guests include the open-air movie theater and of course, pampering at Asounfou Spa with a range of traditional and calming treatments. Special honeymoon packages are available to help make your trip even more personalized and truly unforgettable.

Hotel La Mamounia

Another romantic Moroccan hotel is Hotel La Mamounia. With its ornate carvings and hand-cut tiles, this palace portrays an equally alluring mix of the City of Marrakech’s past and future. Scents of orange blossom, jasmine, and cedar gently grace the air as you walk from room to room.

The simplicity and fine attention to detail reflect the true beauty of Arabic-Andalusian architecture. Their commitment to hospitality goes hand in hand with the modern conveniences that travelers come to expect. La Mamounia is perhaps Morocco’s most famous hotel, hosting many celebrities.

It proudly holds the titles for “The #1 Hotel In The World #2018”, “The #1 Urban Hotel In The World 2018”,  “The #1 Hotel In Africa 2018”, and “Morocco’s Best Hotel Spa Awards 2018.”

The weather in Morocco is great. It has wonderful sunny weather for most of the year, and gets a little chilly in the winter months.

Ideas of Top Romantic Places to Stay in Morocco

1. Kasbah Tamadot:

Kasbah Tamadot, meaning “soft breeze” in the Berber language, is a luxurious escape from the rest of the world. It’s close to the city of Marrakech but far enough away in the small village of Asni to give you the feel of seclusion.

Situated at the bottom of the Atlas Mountains, but at the top of a beautiful valley, nature surrounds you with peace. Beauty can be found everywhere you look, from the grand Mount Toubkal to the small Berber villages.

You have the option of staying in a deluxe Berber-style tent or suite. The option is yours whether you’d like your own private pool or to use the outdoor and indoor pools which are available to all guests. If you’re looking to up the relaxation factor of your stay, their spa options will be sure to get you into pure serenity.

Check out their luxury romance package which consists of a three or four night pampered stay. It includes private dinners for two with a bottle of house wine, champagne upon arrival, and a hammam (Moroccan bath) package for each. Yet it truly is their level of hospitality and service which sets them apart. They go out of their way to accommodate your needs and requests as much as possible. Prepare to be blown away by the gorgeous views and ultimate luxury of Kasbah Tamadot!

2. La Mamounia:

Have a one of a kind 3 day honeymoon experience at La Mamounia in Marrakech! Included in this wonderful honeymoon package is a 30 minute massage, poolside buffet breakfast, a guided visit of Marrakech, a 60 minute Hammam experience in their private Moroccan bath, cocktails at the gallery Majorelle and other delicious meals.

Take walks in their beautiful 20 acre park and marvel at the greenery and abundant olive trees. Relax and enjoy the live music played at the Majorelle Gallery with your loved one. You will come away from this hotel feeling spoiled and perhaps have a new standard for luxury travel.

3. Riad Kniza:

This luxury riad is in the middle of Marrakech, ideally situated close to the famous square Jema l’Fna, amazing souks, and important sites of this imperial city. Dating from the 18th century, Riad Kniza has been restored in all its glory to reflect true Moroccan craftsmanship.

Their staff aims to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Due to its small number of suites, they have the capacity to attend to whatever needs may arrive. If you want to relax after time spent enjoying the city of Marrakech, their swimming pool and spa are lovely.

And for your culinary tastes, their restaurant is one of the best in Marrakech. Guests often say that this is one of the best hotels they have ever stayed in. Riad Kniza is a source of privacy and peace amid the bustle of Marrakech. Experience the beauty of one of the finest Moroccan riads!

riad-fes-pool

4. Riad Fes:

Placed on the edge of the old city in Fes, Riad Fes offers all of the tradition of the past with all of the luxury of the present. After a day of taking advantage of the activities and excursions the riad offers, deluxe rooms and suites give you and your spouse a safe haven to refresh in.

Hiking, golf, thermal spas, horseback riding, and historical tours are all at your fingertips with the help of Riad Fes. But if you prefer to stay and relax, their own spa can do the trick! You and your spouse will surely be stunned at the beauty of the architecture, glassy pool, and incredible view of Fes from the balcony.

5. Getaways in Chefchaouen:

Are you looking for a more peaceful honeymoon away from the larger cities? Think about a romantic getaway in Chefchaouen! Chefchaouen is the “blue pearl” of Morocco, getting its namesake from the blue color that coats most of the city.

The stunning views of the Rif Mountains along with the picturesque streets make it any photographers dream. Gorgeous views are around every corner! The atmosphere gives you a sense of peace and tranquility. Consider booking a stay at Lina Ryad & Spa, Dar Meziana, Riad Chrifa, or any of the other options which will make you feel right at home.

Give yourselves plenty of time to wander around the enchanting streets and small markets for treasures to remember this trip by! The magic and mystery of this city will only enhance the magic of your new stage of life!

6. Private House in Fes:

If you are looking for a little bit more of a personal adventure, consider finding a small private house to stay in in Fes! With the help of websites like AirBnB, this option has become easier and easier. This would be ideal for a more private honeymoon, allowing you to control your schedule and menu. Adventure into the markets to buy fresh produce to cook for your meals! This would be especially helpful if you have dietary restrictions- although hotels and riads are very helpful in accommodating those needs.

Enjoy the freedom of your own little house in the middle of a country you have yet to experience! Living side by side with Moroccans is the best way to get a true taste of daily life in Fes.

If the private house vacation isn’t for you – we’d be more than happy to suggest some of our favorite places to stay in Fes.

essaouira

7. Beach Stay in Essaouira:

Another wonderful place for you and your new spouse to visit is Essaouira. A couple of hours from Marrakech, this coastal fishing city offers beautiful sandy beaches and a relaxed vibe. Known as “the Windy City of Africa”,

Essaouira gives you all the benefits of a beach town without the large crowds of tourists. You might need to swap laying on the beach for more active water sports. The wind is perfectly suited for the tourists that come between April and November to surf or windsurf. The old walled-city will transport you into another world of blue and white. It’s size is just right for exploring: large enough to be full of things to discover but small enough to keep you from getting lost.

Above all, take a deep breath and enjoy the beauty around you with the one you love. Take moments out of the day to be together, stopping to smell the roses (or spices in the souk!) while you’re here. Watch a romantic sunset on the ramparts of the city or from the rooftop of your hotel or riad.

8. Berber Tents in the Sahara:

What could be more romantic than sleeping under the stars in the Sahara desert? A camel trek out into the dunes is a must-do for every couple visiting Morocco.

Stay in deluxe Berber tents and see more stars than you dreamed possible.

Hotels near and on the dunes allow you to get a firsthand experience of the magnificent Sahara. They can offer you both authenticity and luxury. Soak up the stunning sand dunes as well as the pool, hotel amenities and beautiful suites.

The Sahara has a unique type of beauty, so make the most of it as you take walks out on the dunes together or try sandboarding! This is truly a once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience.

Top 6 Romantic Things to Do in Morocco:

Balloons-in-the-Morning

1. Hot Air Balloon Ride

Thinking outside the box for your honeymoon activities? Do you crave a little more adrenaline than the average honeymoon package offers? If you are not afraid of heights, try a hot air balloon in Marrakech. The dazzling views mixed with the rush of floating far above Marrakech combines romance and adventure.

There are multiple different options, enabling you to get exactly what you’re looking for! Starting early in the morning will give you the best view of the mountains and desert scenery.

Some companies also offer a champagne ride where you can enjoy champagne after your sky-high adventure! Ask your sales representative to make arrangements for this unbelievable way to see Morocco.

2. Day by the Garden Pool of La Maison Arabe

La Maison Arabe is a beautiful hotel in Marrakech. It has its own pool in the hotel, beside their incredible restaurant, but also has a separate pool where guests can go to enjoy the day and some privacy.

A driver will pick you up and take you to the site so you and your new spouse can spend a day by the pool in the middle of a lovely garden. You will love the refreshing welcome drinks, and the peaceful atmosphere. Order a poolside meal or tea and cookies! When you feel ready to return to the hotel, your driver will take you home.

spa

3. Visit a Moroccan Spa

Many hotels and riads in Morocco offer a spa or hammam (traditional bath) for their guests. Try a couple’s spa! Complete with beauty treatments, a sauna room and massages, these spa experiences are fun to try!

Relax in your bathrobe and drink the soothing green tea that they provide. Each hotel or riad will do it a little bit differently, but they all promise a rejuvenating experience.

4. Explore the Palaces of Marrakech

Moroccan architecture is breathtaking. Visit old palaces in Marrakech such as the Badi palace, the Bahia palace, and the Royal Palace to try to imagine the lives of sultans and viziers. The Saadian Tombs are where the kings of Morocco are buried.

medina

5. Wander through the Souks

The Medinas of Morocco are fascinating. Devote a day simply to wandering around through the markets and looking at all the little shops. In Fes, there are sights to see such as the tanneries, the weavers, and the Berber pharmacy. Buy souvenirs to take home, or even decorations for your house together!

6. Visit Cascades D’Ouzoud

Looking for a beautiful view? Take a day trip to see the Cascades D’Ouzoud, Morocco’s largest waterfall. You can stay the night there if you want to enjoy the scenery longer. Pack a picnic and drink the fresh squeezed orange juice sold nearby! This location won a 2015 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

Themed Honeymoons:

If you are a couple that enjoys bonding over specific activities, you might enjoy planning a themed honeymoon. Here are two themed honeymoons that would work really well in Morocco:

Culinary Honeymoon:
Do you and your spouse love to cook together? Are you always on the lookout for new dishes and spices? While in Morocco on your honeymoon, try out cooking classes taught by experts. They will guide you through the preparation of a delicious Moroccan meal.

Some cooking classes even have you go to the market and buy all the ingredients with them so that you can replicate the meal when you get home! Stop by the Berber pharmacy in the Fes Medina to buy the spices that you will need to bring back home.

Adventure Honeymoon:
This one is for the couples who want to be active on their honeymoon trip. Make sure to seek out the adventure opportunities in the cities you visit! For example, hike in the scenic Atlas Mountains or while in Essaouira, try out the water sports!

Another romantic adventure is taking a 4×4 trip out in the Sahara desert to explore the sand dunes. If you are a fan of rock climbing, Morocco also has many great locations to do so such as the Todra Gorges or Tafraoute.

The Pros & Cons of Private vs. Group Tours

When it comes to planning a once in a lifetime vacation, nothing should fall through the cracks. You want to make sure that you get exactly what you want out of your trip! There’s no room for mistakes or disappointments. You’ve been dreaming about your time off for weeks, months, or even years. This precious opportunity should rightfully be held to a high standard. 

But for many people, planning a trip to an exotic location can be confusing. Not only have you likely not been to the location before, but you also might have a lot of questions! What is the local culture like? What are some do’s and don’ts of being a guest in this country? What activities and sites are a must-see? Or on the other side of things, what should I be sure to avoid? Even with the help of the internet, sites like TripAdvisor can lead you astray. It’s difficult to discern what information to trust and which information to throw out. In the age of the internet, we have all come to know that not everything you read can be trusted. Everything must be taken with a grain of salt! 

And in the end, there’s nothing that can truly replace the advice of an expert who’s gained their experience and knowledge firsthand. So where are the experts and how do you get their help? This is where becoming part of a tour group can help.

You’ll need to decide, though, whether a private or a group tour is best for you. The decision will likely take a number of factors into consideration. To help you out, we’ve assembled the pros and cons of both private versus group tours. Hopefully after reading this post you will be able to know what option will help you accomplish your travel dreams! What’s right for one person or group won’t always be what’s best for another. 

Group Tours

Let’s start with group tours! These tours are open to the public and are most often in large groups. 

Pro: Lower price
The most obvious pro to booking a group tour for your next vacation is the price. Typically, a group tour comes at a lower price when compared to a more stylized, private tour. Just as when you buy in bulk at the grocery store, buying in bulk also helps when traveling for large tour companies. By reserving large groups of people, these companies are able to get a cheaper price, which makes the price per person cheaper as well. 

Pro: Meet new people
Another pro to booking a group tour is that there is sometimes a sense of family togetherness fostered among members of the group. This type of tour offers the chance to meet new friends and acquaintances, in some cases, from all over the globe. Since it isn’t restricted to a specific group booking the tour, a great mixing of people can happen on this kind of trip. The more people, the more opportunities for new friends! You never know who might end up on the same tour trip as you. Some travelers quite like to meet new friends and make new connections as they travel. If you are looking for new relationships with people who are similar to you or share common interests, this could be a good way to do that! The more specific your tour is, the more likely you are to find compatibility among the tour members. 

Con: Fixed dates & itineraries
This brings us to the cons of group tours. You normally aren’t allowed much leeway in terms of the tour you take when you sign up for a group tour. Normally, these types of tours rely on pre-fixed departure and return dates with little to no flexibility. The itineraries are also commonly set well in advance and are not available to be altered by vacationers. This helps keep the cost down of the tour, but is at the expense of your personal wants or needs. If you have other ideas on what you’d be interested in for your trip, there’s no room for individualization. The company only offers what has been previously set in stone. 

Con: Fixed transportation
As well, another con to group travel is fixed transportation. This usually means a large tour bus that makes pre-planned stops and may even lead to you missing out on certain locations and sites. It’s just not practical or possible for tour buses to fit or drive in the same roads as a mid to large size vehicle. Some historic sites may not have room to accommodate large buses. Consider what the roads and sites will be like where you’re traveling. Will the size of your tour vehicle limit what you can access? 

Con: Tourist-rich experiences
Group tours also heavily rely on tourist-rich activities and sightseeing. For travelers in search of a more “authentic” adventure, you may not find yourself fully immersed in the culture of a region by taking part in a large group tour. And as you make your way along the tour route, you will find it’s difficult to have individual questions answered or explained in depth. Your experiences will be largely dictated by the needs of the group. 

Private Tours

Next, let’s take a look at private tours. With a private tour, you and those you have chosen to travel with are the only ones in your group! 

Pro: Customized for travelers
For many travelers, private tours afford unique vacation opportunities that can be customized to reflect personal needs and wants. You don’t have to depend on pre-planned itineraries. Private tours are designed around what travelers want to get out of their vacations. Often a private tour company has itineraries pre-made, but this is just the starting point. The itinerary can be changed in order to suit your desires to the best of their ability. Everything from accommodations to meals to activities like cooking classes and private guided tours are taken care of. Your wish is their command!

Do you love exploring a new country through the world of local cuisine? Add a cooking class. Interested in biking or cycling around your new destination, seeing it on two wheels? Add a cycling day. Has a certain national park caught your eye? Adda guided hike to see the best parts of what nature has to offer, while feeling safe and without getting lost. Are you wanting to learn more about local embroidery or other handcrafted goods? Add a workshop…that’s the beauty of being able to personalize your travel experience. 

With you and your chosen traveling companions as the sole clients, it’s all about you. If there are things you would rather skip or would hate to miss, it’s as easy as telling your tour representative. This is really one of the best pros of choosing to travel with a private tour! You get all of the perks of traveling independently, where you have full control over what you do and where you go, but without any of the stress. You can have the trip you have always wanted with the peace of mind that comes with having everything taken care of for you. 

Pro: You set dates/times
Along with this, it is up to you to set up the private tour and guide to fit your schedule. With a private tour, you can set the date which is most convenient to you. The dates of your tour can be according to what works best for your personal calendar. Do you have specific dates that you need to work around? No problem! Starting and ending your tour is totally dependent on what you prefer. You can also choose to stay in one destination longer, and one shorter. You don’t have to depend on going along with the group. If there is a certain city that you have been dying to spend more time in, you got it! If you want to add in extra days to relax along the way, no worries! Customization is all for your benefit. Additionally, you can make your vacation as short as you want, or extend it as long as you want and you can afford. Rather than working with a set amount of days, you tour is however long you would like it to be, allowing for time and budget restraints. 

Pro: Vacation with friends/family
Another pro to taking a private tour is that you know your fellow travelers. Because the tours are private, you get to decide who joins in on the tour. This may mean just your immediate family, your extended family, or your invited friends. You don’t have to worry about vacationing with strangers if you don’t want to. This affords you the privacy that you might come to want during a get-away trip.

The comfortability factor increases greatly when your time abroad is spent with those you love! A private tour might specifically be the best option when it comes to special celebratory trips. Some examples are honeymoon trips, wedding anniversaries, birthdays, or to celebrate retirement! These kind of lifetime achievements are obviously more enjoyable when spent with your loved ones! You can let go of all pressure to get to know new people or stress from being around people you don’t know 

Pro: Private transportation
With a private tour group, you can also rely more on private transportation to get you around. While large tour groups may end up on large buses and other services, small private tour groups often get around by private car or minibus. The smaller size of these tourism vehicles are great at offering travelers more flexibility. While a large tour bus has difficulties fitting down smaller streets or roads, your private transportation should have no problem. The small nature of your group makes it easy to see more intimate places and little known corners of the world. Your personal driver and guide will take you where you would like to go, to what you would personally like to see! There will not be any limitations because of your tour group or vehicle size. 

Pro: Special assistance
Private tours are also useful for those who need some extra assistance. This might include older relatives, those with small children, or travelers with mobility or medical concerns. If there is something that’s making you hesitate on traveling abroad, there is a good chance that a private tour can accommodate you! From years of experience with clients with a variety of needs, private tour groups are often well versed in working around the needs of their clients. Service is individualized and the experience of the customer comes first. 

Con: Cost (sometimes)
As for the cons to private tours, such tours do traditionally cost more money. However, because you are planning the vacation you want, you aren’t wasting money on things you don’t want to do or see. If you don’t want to stay in a luxury resort, for example, you don’t have to. If you aren’t interested in a guided tour of a specific site or city, you don’t have to. That’s more money for you to take part in the range of activities that you do want! Since you work with your representative to plan the exact vacation you want, you know exactly what you are getting and exactly what you are paying for. The power is in your hands to create the experience you’re dreaming of. Overall this works together to make a more meaningful vacation for you, to remember for a lifetime.

Weighing the Pros and Cons

At the end of the day, your trip is up to you! Your decision should be based on what will work best for you and whoever you are traveling with. Consider all of the different factors. Weigh the pros and cons of each. Think about what your travel goals are. What is most important to you as you travel? Sometimes the choice is more dependent on your location. Look into the logistics of where you are going to be traveling and what you would like to see. Do some research and see what you discover!

Golfing Opportunities in Morocco

Morocco enjoys a warm climate, a selection of spectacular sights and attractions, golden beaches and the towering dunes of the Sahara Desert. What many vacationers don’t realize is that Morocco also has a large golfing community with a good selection of quality courses available for your enjoyment during your stay.

Marrakesh
There are six quality golf courses in Marrakesh alone. Marrakesh has remained a top tourist destination, offering a central base for exploring Morocco along with a great Medina and souk.

Al Maaden Golf Club offers an eighteen hole golf course which offers the most magnificent mountain views, the perfect golf setting when soaking up all the Morocco has to offer.

Amelkis Golf Club also offers an eighteen hole course. This course is US styled and offers a great golfing experience, while Palmadraie Golf Course offers an abundance of great water features throughout its eighteen hole course.


Visiting Morocco in July

What’s On?
July is a busy month in Morocco with a number of festivals and holidays taking place. The most popular is the Marrakesh Popular Arts Festival which attracts folk singers, dancers, snake charmers, fire swallowers and fortune tellers from far and wide.

Must See Sights in Marrakech

Marrakech is the fourth largest city in the North African country of Morocco and a very popular tourist destination. This city has so much to offer holiday makers from spectacular luxury hotels to a number of historical and cultural sights.

There are a few things you shouldn’t miss when staying in the area to ensure you enjoy the complete Marrakech experience. Our clients always enjoy their experiences in Marrakech.

Djemaa el-Fna
Djemaa el-Fna is a large square in the heart of Marrakesh Medina, or the old town. This square is where you can experience snake charmers, jugglers and dancers. While street performers perform in the square there are a number of food stalls where you can taste some of the traditional culinary delights.


Experience New Things in Morocco

There is no better way to visit a foreign country than to try new things and enjoy new experiences. Morocco in northern Africa has so many fun things to offer travelers from around the world, which is what makes it such a popular tourist destination.

If you’re looking for unique activities to enjoy while holidaying in Morocco you may want to consider some of the following:

Hot Air Balloon Ride
Yes you can probably hire a hot air balloon in any country across the globe. But a hot air balloon ride in Morocco will take you over the fascinating Atlas Mountain range and over the spectacular Sahara Desert.

You can experience these sites from the sky giving you a bird’s eye view on the villages and scenery down below.


The Sahara Desert of Morocco

The Sahara Desert is the largest hot desert in the world spanning over 8.6 million square kilometers. Of course not the entire desert sits in Morocco; Morocco shares the desert with Algeria, Egypt and Mauritania. For those looking to tour Morocco, you will definitely want to consider a visit to the Sahara!

Interestingly there are over two million people that live in the desert and there are two desert villages that can be visited when you are travelling the area.

The Sahara Desert of Morocco offers brilliant blue skies, vast sandy landscapes with rolling dunes and a very peaceful ambience. During the summer time it does get very hot, as you can imagine, so travelling the Sahara during the cooler hours of the day or during spring and autumn will help you stay a little cooler.


Morocco Tours for Single Travelers

Are you looking to travel to Morocco on you own? Almost every week we get inquiries from potential travelers who are looking to visit Morocco on their own. Some of them are looking for a group tour to join, but many of them are interested to travel on a private Morocco tour.

Is it even possible?
Over the past 10 years, we have served a large number of single travelers. They like to travel by themselves because they can choose their own dates, their own itinerary, budget and much more. The cost of the single traveler tour is higher than our other tours mainly because there is no one else to split the cost with. Many of these travelers enjoy the relationship that they develop with their private driver and love Morocco.

What about single women?
At first I was very hesitant to offer private tour packages to single female travelers, but over the years I have changed my mind. Not because I think Morocco is a wonderful place for single females, but because I have such confidence in my drivers and guides that I don’t worry. I know that they will be taken care of and are in good hands.

How can I keep the price down?
The major downside of traveling alone is that the price is significantly higher than our normal tours like the Best of Morocco.
