Le style n'est pas une taille mais une attitude

HOTEL MURANO RESORT MARRAKECH

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.

After my pictures of Marrakesh city here and those of the Majorelle Garden here, I’m now sharing with you those of the hotel I stayed in.

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.

5 DAYS IN MARRAKESH

mint tea at the Café des Epices

Let’s get back to my trip to Marrakesh, I’ve been telling you how I fell in love with this city. I’m now sharing with you a few pictures and my addresses.

I spent 5 days in Marrakesh, the purpose of this trip was for me to rest, recharge my batteries with sunshine, get away… and this trip totally fulfilled my expectations,200%.

The weather was particularly good, between 93.2°F and 95°F every day, I was able to enjoy the pool. The sun rays weren’t as strong as in the summer, my little boy was able to stay in the sun by the pool with good sunscreen and a hat on of course, but he wasn’t bothered by the heat.

I flew to Marrakesh from Paris CDG on a EasyJet flight, I had no problem. Lino had his own seat on the plane, which wasn’t full, whether it was on the outward on return trip. That’s the advantage of going on vacation out of school breaks.

#MOROCCO – MAJORELLE GARDEN

 

Here we go, let me show you a few pictures of my trip to Morocco, of course I was going to share all of this with you.

It was my first trip to Marrakesh, and it’s the 3rd city I visited in Morocco. I was really transported by Marrakesh and it was a nice change of scene, I stayed there for 5 days. This city did me a world of good, I fell in love with it.

For this first part, let me take you to the Majorelle Garden, an unmissable place if you ever visit Marrakesh, a haven of peace, a green oasis of beauty that took my breath away.

The garden was created by Jacques Majorelle in 1924, it wouldn’t be until later, in 1980, that Yves Saint Laurent would buy it to make this place durable. Today it belongs to the Pierre Bergé Foundation and it’s still open to the public.
