A weekend getaway!
I managed to get away right before the London Fashion Week mania starts!
Packed my bag with a jacket and a swimsuit,with my girls on the side, we arrived in Sunny Marrakech and fell in love with it!
It was off season so not many tourists and wasn’t very hot, which made it just perfect! We stayed at Riad Dollar Des Sables which is right in the midst of the medina (which is the main market where you can be lost for hours if you don’t have a good map with you).
The Riad was just how we expected it, small cozy and private. Despite being right in the Riad, we could not hear a thing while soaking the sun on the terrace. All we had was the clear blue sky,the bright sun and the sound of birds chirping.
The terrace even had its own hammam(the traditional Moroccan bath) which was perfect to go to after a long day in the markets.The agenda was simple: a little catch up with the girls, good food and relaxing baths!
Apart from getting great deals on local spices,soaps and beautifully crafted leather goods we indulged ourselves in the Atlas Golf Spa which was the most relaxing few hours I have had in the last few months!
We all opted for the traditional hammam which consists of a sauna+body scrub using the legendary black soap. After which we went for a full body massage with the most beautifully smelling rose oil! C’est Parfait!
Below are some quick pictures I took from my iPad. More to follow.
