WHERE TO STAY IN: MARRAKECH
With accommodation ranging from beautifully traditional houses to the most luxurious riads and hotels, Marrakech has something for everyone. On this particular occasion, we decided to sample the Palais Namaskar in a bid to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for some well deserved serenity. Suffice to say that this hotel, a mere 25 minute drive from the central Jemaa el Fnaa square, befits its name. It is quite the palace and a true sanctuary; easy on the eyes and peaceful on the mind.
We enjoyed a delectable Sunday brunch, which boasts the perfect combination of relaxing lounge music, wonderful service, great food and a mimosa (or two). For those of you looking to experience the beautiful settings and amenities without the commitment of a stay, the hotel also offers pool day passes, complete with complimentary drinks and fresh fruits.
Go ahead, enjoy the loungers, explore the grounds and take a nap in the hammock. I know I did!
