Just a short flight away, Morocco feels like another world. The country is a superb choice for a honeymoon, whether you spend a few days or a few weeks.
Marrakech is a great place to begin your North African adventure. The city is home to a range of riads, including the luxurious La Mamounia, and is easy to explore on foot – either at your own pace, or with a knowledgeable guide. Indoors, a visit to a traditional hammam will leave you relaxed and beautified. Morocco is famous for its delicious cuisine, and Marrakech has plenty of romantic restaurants worthy of this reputation. It’s also the place to try your hand at cooking during a private lesson.
About an hour from Marrakech, the beautiful Atlas Mountains offer peace and quiet in spectacular surroundings. The springtime climate is lovely, as the hills and valleys come into bloom against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks. Why not toast your matrimony in style with a hot air balloon ride over the mountain range, accompanied by a celebratory glass of fizz? Back on the ground, delightful guest houses provide comfort and relaxation, and you can stroll through the valleys and explore traditional Berber villages.
Essaouira is Morocco’s most charming seaside resort, with a strong Portuguese influence and a laid-back vibe. The narrow paths of the Old Quarter are dotted with blue doors and whitewashed buildings. We recommend spending a morning wine tasting at a local vineyard, followed by lunch overlooking the vines. There are attractive riads in town such as Villa de L’Ô, or alternatively you could head up the coast to Oualidia and the sandy banks of the lagoon, home to La Sultana.
The Sahara Desert is one of Morocco’s most iconic draws, and we would be delighted to take care of you at A&K’s Exclusive Desert Tented Camp, where you’ll experience the dunes under a canopy of stars in privacy and exceptional comfort.
From Marrakech’s ancient medina to the Sahara’s golden dunes; from the frenetic market stalls to the peaceful mountains, Morocco is an exquisitely exotic destination. A honeymoon here promises to be an unforgettable adventure.
