The Sloaney Travel Team recently visited Morocco for the first time to explore Marrakech. We stayed at La Mamounia, which is a truly outstanding luxury venue (read the full travel feature here). The hotel regularly welcomes some of the world’s highest profile individuals and Winston Churchill often chose La Mamounia for his winter breaks.

It attracts some of America’s most successful actresses and it is equally as popular with the British fashion crowd (we just missed Poppy Delevingne during our stay).

The destination is located within the ancient walls of the city and the gardens are actually older than the hotel itself. Guests are presented with the best of the best when they visit and it is an ideal luxury getaway, especially if you are seeking sunny skies and warm temperatures in spring or autumn. La Mamounia is one of those hotels that you won’t want to leave and although it is very popular, the expansive gardens encourage a peaceful atmosphere.

We were particularly impressed by the facilities offered and this adds to the feeling of a cocooned escape, where everything is at your fingertips. Most of the suites have a double balcony, which means you can soak up the sunshine in the privacy of your own space. Alternatively, the outdoor pool is the centrepiece of the gardens and also allows guests to dine whilst overlooking the water.

Sporty clientele can make the most of tennis courts, table tennis and boules facilities. The gyms also cater for individual workout needs. The more public gym is located in the gardens, but an indoor gym is nestled towards the back of the magnificent spa and this is often home to famous faces looking for a discreet area to exercise.

During our visit, we filmed a mini-documentary about La Mamounia and some of the treats on offer to visitors of Marrakech. For a sneak peek inside the stunning hotel and gardens, watch Sloaney TV here…
