Luxury Morocco vacations

Morocco

Situated in the North-West corner of Africa, Morocco’s rich and diverse culture is something that makes it somewhat of a hot spot for travelers looking for authentic travel experiences on their luxury vacation. It’s offers everything from desert adventures and world-class cuisine, to indulgent accommodations and shopping.

At a glance

Cities such as Fès, Rabat and Marrakech are some of the most unique and historic destinations the world has to offer, packed with souks, markets, and thousands of “hidden gems” secluded in an array of winding traditional Moroccan streets. Marrakech charms luxury guests with its ancient palaces and lush gardens. Casablanca, the hub of Western Morocco, is also home to the spectacular Hassan II mosque, the largest mosque in Africa. The sounds, smells, and flavours of these Moroccan cities will infuse your memories for years to come.

Outside the cities awaits nature’s grandeur, like the Sahara’s rolling dunes. Mount a camel and trek into the desert at sunrise, finishing with breakfast and mint tea in a luxury camp. You can even opt to sleep under the twinkling desert sky in deluxe tents before returning to your hotel by 4×4.

Hot-air ballooning over Marrakech, cycling through fragrant olive groves, and surfing in Taghazout all heighten your sense of adventure on a luxury vacation in Morocco. The High Atlas Mountain range is also a massive draw for those who love hiking, climbing and immersing themselves in beautiful natural landscapes.

Stay in a historical riad in the heart of the Medina and tour the El Badi Palace ruins before indulging in Moroccan hammam treatments at your hotel’s luxury spa. Wander the lanes of the souk to find authentic woven carpets, leatherwork, and locally-crafted jewelry. After night falls, dine on sumptuous Moroccan fare under the stars on the rooftop terraces of restaurants like Le Salama.

Travel Information

Awaken your senses and step into a world of colour, spice and culture. Morocco offers a truly unique experience and its wide diversity is why people love it. From the vast deserts, to the High Atlas mountains, to the buzzing atmosphere in Marrakech, there is so much to do and see.

Head to Casablanca and get a feel for the more modern Morocco. Fez, on the other hand, is known for its historical and cultural lineage which grabs its visitors at first sight. It is the world’s largest car-free urban area, which makes exploring it rather pleasant and peaceful.

Be tempted by the food scene in port cities like Tangier, where fresh seafood and tapas-style mezze shine. Cookery classes give a taste of Moroccan culinary traditions as you whip up tagines and flavorful salads. Then toast the setting sun over cocktails in elegant hotels and beach clubs. Savoring Morocco’s amazing cuisine is an integral part of luxury travel here.

Morocco is an Islamic country and homosexuality is still technically illegal. That being said, many gay travelers went to Morocco in the post-war era to live more openly. Morocco was less homophobic than the UK or America in those days, showing how things can and do change. Public displays of affection are not advised for gay or straight couples in Morocco. You’ll find Morocco to be a surprisingly open place though.

Unfortunately, Morocco criminalises same-sex sexual activity between men and between women. LGBTQ+ individuals are also urged to practice discretion and avoid public displays of affection. While the climate is gradually becoming more accepting, especially in cosmopolitan cities, there have been sporadic crackdowns and arrests in recent years.

Overall, Morocco lacks progressiveness on LGBTQ+ rights compared to other destinations, though luxury hospitality businesses make efforts to welcome gay travelers. At Out Of Office, we only work with resorts and hotels that we know are inclusive and welcoming.

Though at first you may be a little apprehensive but if you can get over the rickety mount and dismount, then you must take a camel ride. There are plenty of places you can do this, but if you want a true authentic experience then head to the Moroccan Sahara desert.

If you are a fan of geography then head to the Todra Gorge which can be found in the High Atlas Mountains. This stunning gorge has been carved out by the Todra and Dades Rivers and stretches 600m. In some parts, the gorge is only 33 feet wide but more than 500 feet deep.

The Argania tree may not be the prettiest tree to look at with its thorny branches and untamed leaves, but these trees still seem to attract a select group of admirers. Moroccan goats love to hang out in the trees and can climb right to the very top. Quite an unusual sight! These tree goats can be found in Tamari.
