Make sure the Sofitel Hotel in Essaouira is on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Morocco and you’ll certainly be able to play around. You can swim in an indoor heated pool, laze on the beach or – literally - play a round. The Sofitel features superb views over the Atlantic ocean and Mogador’s own 18 hole golf course; designed by none other than Gary Player, to be both picturesque and challenging.

Of course, you’ll find making yourself at home in the five star Sofitel a lot less demanding. It is the essence of comfort and hospitality, with décor designed by the world famous Didier Gomez to be a harmonious blend of French and authentic Moroccan themes. Not to mention the So Spa with its list of restorative and beautifying treatments.
