Atlas Essaouira & Spa: Blending international comfort with Moroccan flairUser role is=
Array ( )
Overlooking the golden sands of the Tagharte Beach and the rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean, Atlas Essaouira & Spa is an ideal escape for visitors to the Moroccan coast.
Perfectly positioned along the main promenade in the historic city of Essaouira, Altas is a modern upscale resort that blends international comfort with Moroccan flair. Just steps from the beach and a short walk from the entrance of the medina – the ancient walled city – it provides an excellent option for visitors of all nationalities.
Guests have four different accommodation types to choose from, ranging from 30m² standard rooms to 75m² ambassador suites. All are air-conditioned and come equipped with seating areas, mini-bars and complimentary Wi-Fi. Those booking some of the higher room categories will also be offered impressive views of the Atlantic coast. This becomes even more desirable in the evenings, when the sun sets behind Ile de Mogador, Essaouira’s offshore island, casting beautiful orange reflections off the rippling waves and enchanting shadows over the beach.
But Essaouira’s spectacular sunsets are best enjoyed from the Beach Restaurant – the resort’s impressive beachfront outlet. Set across the road from the main hotel, along the wide promenade, this restaurant provides the perfect place for casual meals and sundown cocktails.
Beach Restaurant is one of three dining options at the Atlas, which showcase international and Moroccan cuisine. And this is really the flavour of the entire property; while it is undoubtedly international in ambience, it also features some aspects that are truly, exquisitely Moroccan.
The boutique, for example, showcases a range of Moroccan fabrics and handicrafts, while the spa is both modern yet entirely authentic. Here, guests could be forgiven for thinking they’ve moved up a rating, from four- to five-star. With a luxurious selection of amenities dedicated to personal pampering, the spa offers guests the choice of a traditional hammam, a sultry sauna and indulgent treatment rooms for both singles and couples.
Guests seeking a more physical workout can use the fitness centre, while the outdoor pool provides a wonderful place to unwind and soak up the North African sun.
Essaouira, with its wide, flat beach, bustling medina and ancient ramparts, is a delightful destination for travellers – especially those seeking a relaxing break from the buzz and bustle of Marrakech. For visitors seeking to combine the facilities of an international resort with Moroccan charm in an unbeatable seafront setting, Atlas Essaouira & Spa is an excellent option.
