48 hours in Marrakech
Awaken out of hibernation! Here are some valuable tips for an unforgettable stay in Marrakech
The luxuriant imperial city of Marrakech is having a revival without losing any of the charm that once seduced the bohemian jet setters of the 1970s. With its Sofia Coppola ambiance and zest of Wes Anderson, the red city is as enchanting as ever.
Our to-do list includes a moment of relaxation in the superb spa of the Mandarin Oriental followed by a boho-chic lunch at the Grand Café de la Poste, then a bit of must-do interior deco shopping at Mustapha Blaoui and a visit to the Maison de la photographie – for a hint of culture. As evening falls enjoy a cocktail at La Mamounia's bar and its jazzy ambiance before heading over to Dar Yacout – for a cocktail on the top floor terrace – and finally Bo & Zin for a très sexy late drink.
The next day, some more shopping at Atika and the 33 Rue Majorelle concept store, with a coffee at Bousafsaf and a celeb-spotting dinner at the El Fenn Hotel.
