“We can’t quite put our finger on it, but there’s just something so irresistible about Morocco. Whether it’s the contrast of the wide open desert with the labyrinthine passages of the medina or the allure of the coast whipped by Atlantic winds, we couldn’t say. What has become clear to us though is the enriching effect that a luxury holiday in Morocco has on the soul. Submerging your senses and gaining a new perspective; that is the power of Morocco.”
