We have a long-term love affair with mesmerizing Morocco! From the stunning Atlas Mountains to magnificent Marrakech, Morocco has so much to offer. For the time being we’ve concentrated on the Atlantic coastal town of Essaouira. Attracting lots of surfers & bohemian birds, this old hippie hang-out with endless beaches and historic seafront fortifications is perfect for those who want to spend more time relaxing than bartering.

Immersion in ravishing Essaouira doesn’t get more luxurious than at Heure Bleue Palais, a 33-room elegant hideaway, on the edge of the magical Medina. The Heure Bleue sits just a moment’s walk from various inviting markets, restaurants, galleries and cafes, and is only a 500 meters stroll from the biscuit-colored beach where kite-surfers show off their skills.

Initially built in the 19th century as a nobleman’s residence, this peaceful private palace full of charm & history is the jewel in Essaouira’s crown with its rooftop pool & restaurant, romantic rooms, chic bar and calming courtyard for breakfast, teatime and hanging out. Heure Bleue Palais, an old Relais & Châteaux property, feels more like a private members’ club than a hotel. You get the friendliness and feel of a riad (a traditional Moroccan house) with the service and style of a five-star hotel.

Opened in 2004 after a meticulous renovation, Heure Bleue luxury hotel in Morocco’s Essaouira is an oasis of calm with a very unique character. Complete with Chesterfields in the lobby and birds twittering in the riad courtyard, Heure Bleue’s colorful Oriental look is the perfect blend of Moroccan masterpieces and a pretty colonial style. We were impressed by the beauty of the enchanting interior courtyard with its ornamental fountain and towering palm trees plus mature plants.

Following Islamic traditional architecture, the upper floors are open corridors providing access to the luxury accommodation. Reflecting African, Oriental and colonial influences of Essaouira’s rich heritage, the bedrooms are discreetly furnished with dark woods, king-sized beds and marble bathrooms. Heure Bleue hotel’s larger suites boast roaring fireplaces to warm up during cool winter evenings.

At Heure Bleue hotel in Essaouira the day starts with breakfast inspired by fresh Moroccan ingredients from the region. Between sunbathing & dips in the rooftop pool, enjoy a light lunch on the popular roof terrace, where the view of the Unesco-listed Medina of Essaouira & the Atlantic Ocean is spectacular. In the evenings, celebrate life in the Salon Oriental for a real Moroccan experience or in the lovely courtyard under the stars and palm trees. Tip: Heure Bleue’s hotel bar is very popular and perfect for cozying up if its gets windy. Oh, and the hammam (a bracing massage and scrub down) in The Petit Spa is not to be missed. We reckon you’ll have never been cleaner.

Let your Moroccan journey begin!
