From the moment you arrive at Heure Bleue Palais you are captivated by its exquisite character. After being welcomed with disarming charm and a genuine sense of hospitality, you are shown your wonderfully crafted room, which overlooks the serene palm shaded central courtyard. You open the window, breathe in the fresh air, and take a moment to enjoy this oasis of sublime peace and beauty.
There is so much to do in Essaouira: a shopping trip to the ancient town’s fascinating souks, a visit to a museum, a 4×4 excursion to an Argan oil cooperative, or rise to the challenge of the 18-hole course at Golf Mogador… You opt for a day of discovering the UNESCO World Heritage Medina; the winding alleys, colourful souks, art galleries, handicrafts, wide sandy beaches and picturesque working fishing port are just waiting to be explored.
After a day in the old town you retire to the Heure Bleue Palais’ rooftop for a light lunch at the terrace grill. You enjoy the stunning views over the Medina towards the Atlantic before a dip in the heated rooftop swimming pool. The traditional Hammam in the spa tempts and you experience an unforgettable treat for body and soul – lured away from complete relaxation only by the ‘new Moroccan cuisine’ Chef Ahmed is conjuring up in the kitchen.
Dinner at the Salon Oriental is a delicious gastronomic journey! You enjoy a totally authentic Moroccan experience in luxurious comfort, matched with impeccable service. The rest of the evening is spent drinking your new favourite tipple – Heure Bleue Val d’Argan – on the terrace with friends and revelling in the beauty of the town.
