A glamorous, exotic retreat

I'm going to Morocco in January, and I couldn't be more excited. I've wanted to go ever since the first time I ate at a Moroccan restaurant in NYC. I saw a beautiful ad for this hotel in Marrakech, called "La Mamounia" in House Beautiful, and I decided to see if there were more pics online. Granted, I have a hostel budget, but I can dream!




mmm...Moroccan food....



I can't wait to see the architecture!




Beautiful, no?

A dream destination for me as well.

How long will you be staying?
How many stops?
..and will one of them be Fez?

Fascinating find.

I went to Marrakech back in April 2000 and was blown away by the place. The architecture, the colours, the activity, the picutre postcard at every turn. It's an amazing place and one I would love visit again. Enjoy every minute, I know you will.

Marrakech is lovely - went there last summer, and had a great time despite the scorching heat! We stayed at Riad Malika, check it out. It's absolutely gorgeous! A lot of riads have deals if you stay for a few nights. We also went to the mountains and stayed at Kasbah du Toubkal for one night, expensive but so so so absolutely stunning...
