Get lost in magical Morocco and its souks

From souqs to ski slopes, Morocco is nothing but eclectic. Dive into age-old medinas. Sip mint tea in a café “as time goes by”. Or experience the Berber way of life with a private camel trek in the Atlas Mountains. Then, as night falls, unwind in a hammam at your luxury boutique hotel.

When To Go

Whether it’s a luxury city break or relaxing retreat, Morocco can be an all-year-round destination. Spring and autumn tend to be cooler and quieter. In the summer months, dipping into a pool in your Moorish boutique hotel is heavenly. You’ll find ski resorts and thermal spas dotted amongst the Atlas Mountains – which are usually snow-capped from November to April.

Top Tip from SLH

Storytelling is a time-honoured art in Morocco. Join a huddle and listen to enchanting tales as the sun sets.
