Coastal hotels & riads in Morocco, Essaouira

Small and simple hotel 20 km south of Essaouira.

ABOUT: A surfer favourite, this small, rustic and relaxing beach hotel sits a dozen miles south of Essaouira on the road to Agadir, with wild forest behind and one of the country’s most stunning stretches of sand only yards in front.  It makes a perfect stop-off for nature-lovers and slumber-seekers alike.  Clad in attractive blue and white hues, the auberge is chiefly characterised by great service, a convivial atmosphere and fantastic food.  With no electricity, all is candle and lamplit – but that only adds to the ambience.

 

ROOMS: Accompanied by three spacious and clean shower rooms, the ten simple rooms offer pretty rugs and quirky decor.  The chamber beside the roof terrace is reputedly a favourite of Paloma Picasso whenever she visits.

 

FACILITIES:An authentic mesh of Moroccan and French style, chef Khadija’s cuisine is fresh and bursting with flavour; fish is a specialty, vegetarians are welcomed and dishes are either served in the dining room, which has a fireplace, or on an outside patio.  The staff sometimes play harmonicas or perform belly dances; afterwards, the tradition is for guests to sit and lazily chat into the night.

 

EXTRA INFO:Roro and her fabulous team can arrange almost anything: surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing in the Atlantic, camel and horse-rides along the beach, cycling, cookery and belly-dancing classes, and tours of Essaouira’s medina, including hammam sessions.  A local lady can also be summoned for traditional hennas.

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
