As I was going through my phone deleting & reorganising photos, I came across my Marrakesh photos and I was instantly reminded of the bittersweet feeling I had. As some of you know, if you’ve have watched my Marrakesh experience video I shared a few experiences during the first few days of our stay & although unfortunate & deeply disturbing at the time it didn’t stop us from making the most out of our stay taking photos along the way. I also realised that I hadn’t shared a blog post about the trip so here goes…
A few friends reached out shortly after the experience and asked for some tips and advice as they were planning on visiting and this is the notes I shared:
Visit the markets in the old town called Medina (just make sure you’re wearing appropriate clothing) they also have a secret garden which is super pretty and ysl garden.
Do a Hammam at Les Bains de Marrakech Morocco (it’s amazing) is really relaxing and good for a skin, although a little on the pricier side but if you want to treat yourself I’d certainly recommend. You can also do Hammam for as little as £2 in the old town.
If you can depending on your hotel you can book yourself into a day resort like move pick hotel or hotel Pullman palmeria resort.
Try to spend as much time in the new town as well and make sure you book activities beforehand like quad biking and atlas mountain (if you’d like to visit the waterfall).
Use taxis if you don’t have transport organised and negotiate price.
Places we ate:
Lunch – Terrace De Spices (old town) you can smoke really nice rooftop.
L’addresse really good lunch spot (and ice cream)
Cafe del la poste – sit outside if you can really beautiful and the food is good.
Dar Moha – riad but so beautiful and romantic perfect for your dinner date (tables are by the pool).
A lot of the new town has the best and modern restaurants so try and got there for dinner most times.
Club – triple 55 club they also have a shisha rooftop bar next door by the pool and it’s really pretty
