SOFITEL, the luxury division of French giant Accor Hotels, has inaugurated its Essaouira Mogador resort in Morocco.
The Mogador eco-resort is set in some 600 hectares of forest along 4 kilometers of coast line, boasting a 36-hole Gary Player golf course and a number of exclusive villas, all designed to be eco-friendly thanks to features such as energy-efficient lighting and water recycling systems. It’s also home to the massive Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf and Spa, a spectacular resort property which offers 147 rooms and 28 villas with private pools.
Designed to blend in with its natural surroundings, the hotel is built around a huge stone reception area which offers a view over the golf course and out to the ocean, as well as being home to the Tea Lounge and a cocktail bar.
For gastronomes, the hotel offers live cooking shows on the terrace in the Kasbah Cafe or a more formal restaurant Atelier aux Aromes, which serves a blend of French and Moroccan cooking.
Two of the resort’s villas have been designed by fashion brand Lacoste and Sofitel has also partnered with Clarins and 5 Mondes to equip the property’s 1,300 square meter So SPA.
