If you missed the February trip, here’s another chance to escape to Morocco at the fantastic Hotel Tigmi on the outskirts of Marrakesh 12-19 October. The last trip was so lovely we wanted to do it again (in fact this is being planned before we even return to the UK) where feedback has consistently been that the photos do not actually do justice to the location.
Only 30 minutes from the heart of the city Hotel Tigmi was named a Top 12 Ethical Hideaway by Harper’s Bazaar, which described it as a ‘blissed-out haven that mixes style with substance’. The boutique hotel has become so synonymous with relaxation that clients now say they’re going to get Tigmified.
With views of an ancient Kasbah and the snow-capped mountains, you’ll feel miles away from it all while only 15 miles from Marrakesh. Meandering courtyards and courtyards reveal a variety of terraces, gardens of banana palms and bougainvillea and swimming pools (heated, if necessary!) .
While there you can spend your days relaxing by the pool, being pampered in the hotel’s very own spa and hammam, exploring the local surrounds including the local village, ancient Kasbah or venturing towards the Atlas mountains. (The Tigmi team can arrange half or fill day trips to the mountains.)
…Or mix things up with a visit to the busy UNESCO world heritage site of the Marrakesh medina. Tigmi offers a complimentary free shuttle (three times each day) to the city daily where you can experience the magic of the medina or the grove of 150,000 palm trees at La Palmeraie. (The last shuttle bus drops you back off at Tigmi in time for our evening meal)
…Or perhaps something a bit more sporty, with horse riding and golf easily arranged.
…Or a bit of everything in your glorious 8 day and 7 night stay..
