I needed a little break, right now I have my head to the grindstone for several in order to achieve several projects, and sorting my Marrakesh pictures out did me a lot of good.
If I choose to talk about it here, it’s because it completely fulfilled my expectations. I thought that maybe you could use a good hotel address in Marrakesh.
I spent 7 nights in the Murano Resort, an hotel located in the Marrakesh’s palm grove. You might need to know that you have to take a taxi to reach downtown, but it’s not much of a problem since the hotel provides you with a shuttle with a driver for €10. And most of the hotels in the palm grove do the same (Club Med, Deux Tours, etc.)
The Murano Resort is rather contemporary but really marked by oriental codes, I really loved this style, very “new Marrakesh”.
When I booked my stay in Marrakesh, my main goal was to rest, enjoy the sun and take my mind off things.
I told the hotel that I was travelling with a 22 months-old baby and they put the perfect place at our disposal. That is to say a private villa with its own pool in front of the terrace. I could not have hoped for better. While my son Lino was taking his naps, I was able to enjoy the pool and sleep in the sun. It was the first time I was able to do that since his birth, so I might as well tell you that I savored every bit of these moments.
The hotel has 4 villas available spread in a huge garden in the palm grove. The palm trees that are in it are sacred, when one builds something there it’s forbidden to touch them. Which creates perfectly integrated in nature housing. It’s gorgeous and very clever.
I had not taken the board in the hotel, just breakfasts, so I would be free to go and eat in the different restaurants that the city has to offer. Nevertheless I ate in the hotel a few times and the dishes were really delicious.
Since the hotel is huge and well equipped, the villas are all hidden and it’s very easy to isolate yourself and really enjoy the peace and quiet. As you’ve probably guessed by now, it’s a haven of peace, even with a little family.
Pool wise, there are 5 in total, no wading pools but my son had a great time in the big pool thanks to the large steps that served as a shallow pool. The main pool is red, well the tiling in it is, it’s a bit unsettling at first.
I leave you with a few pictures that will hopefully make you want to stay there. To book a stay, I recommend the website hotels.com, that’s where I found the best prices.
A last digression and then I’m off to bed, I’m really pale in the pictures : the day before our departure I put my back out. I was injected with some morphine derivative directly into the back, which allowed me to take my plane the day after. In the mean time I was pretty… ugly.
Now go and take a big dose of palm trees and sunshine.
the first time I tried powder kohl
