A luxury honeymoon in Morocco provides the perfect balance of luxury and adventure, from the ancient souks of Marrakech and Fes to the breathtaking landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and the desert seclusion of Ouarzazate and the Sahara and Agafay desert- as well as the beaches of Essaouria. Explore labyrinthine markets; step back in time in the ancient medinas of the historical cities; stay warm in the mountains with mint tea and hearty tagines; sleep beneath the desert stars and stroll along the beachfront; or combine all of the above for an unforgettable luxury holiday.
Few of the world’s cities evoke the mystery and romance of Morocco’s metropolises, making them perfect for a luxury honeymoon. Marrakech is simply intoxicating, and the Jemaa el Fna main square, with snake charmers, storytellers and musicians at every turn, is an onslaught on the senses- while the serene palm grove suburb of La Palmeraie, all walled gardens and bubbling fountains, adds a touch of welcome tranquillity. Stay in a traditional riad or at the legendary La Mamounia for the ultimate in romantic pampering. Take a look at our luxury honeymoon in Marrakech- an ideal introduction to the city and the Altas Mountains - or why not combine Marrakech with some of the gems of Europe? We recommend pairing Marrakech with Spain for a dazzling diverse honeymoon.
Come to Morocco to take a step back in time- and nowhere is that more true than the ancient Fes, home to the world’s oldest university and a labyrinthine medina which dates to the 8th century. Explore Marrakech, Fez and beyond to the surrounding mountains and desert on this exhilarating highlights holiday.
Sleeping beneath the stars in the Arabian desert is an achingly romantic experience, and the frontier town of Ouarzazarte, its golden buildings rising from the sea of dunes, is known for good reason as ‘the door of the desert’. Trek the dunes on the back of a camel, visit the strikingly lush Valley of the Roses, and sleep beneath the stars at El Khiam Ahlam- this area of desolate beauty will make sure your luxury stay in Morocco is an unforgettable experience. Or head into the fabled Sahara and Agafay deserts- at La Pause, the bedrooms are candlelit and you can enjoy lantern-lit dining as the sun sets. Meanwhile, our desert adventure holiday offers a truly unique and memorable honeymoon.
Honeymoons to the Atlas Mountains
After you've had your fill of bustling, colourful Marrakech, escape to the Atlas Mountains, where you'll find luxurious, secluded idylls such as Richard Branson's breathtaking Moroccan hideaway, Kasbah Tamadot. Take a balloon ride over the mountains for an unforgettable and impossibly romantic adventure.
Morocco isn’t all bustling bazaars and desert sands – it’s also a great place for a luxury beach honeymoon. The sleepy fishing port of Essaouira was a favourite hippy haunt in the 1960s and has retained its laidback charm- today, it's a great place for windsurfing and delicious seafood. Further down the coast at Agadir and iconic Casablanca, you’ll find great beaches for sunbathing and numerous gourmet restaurants. Why not combine Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and the coast all in one thrilling adventure?
