On the shores of Morocco’s Atlantic coast, one luxury resort is providing golfers and families with a great alternative holiday destination.
Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa is a contemporary and chic low-rise resort that combines an array of relaxing activities and amenities, making it the perfect place to take a break from the high-intensity whirl of daily life.
The resort’s main focus is golf, and the 36-hole Gary Player-designed seafront course, which opened in 2009, is a great challenge for golfers of all abilities.
But guests seeking an even more relaxing was to spend their time can seek out the resort’s extensive spa, which offers a multitude of ways to unwind, including a traditional hammam, jacuzzis, massage rooms, a fitness centre and an indoor pool heated to 30ᵒC. The focus on health and wellbeing also continues outdoors, where guests can discover a main swimming pool overlooking the Atlantic and a smaller, more secluded seawater pool.
The resort’s large kids’ club also ensures that parents can unwind in the knowledge that their children are being kept safe and entertained.
In terms of accommodation, there is a choice of 175 rooms, suites and private pool villas. And when they are not enjoying a round of golf or relaxing in swimming pools or spa, guests can sample modern Moroccan and international cuisine at the resort’s restaurant, Le Cafe Kasbah.
Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa is located a short drive from the ancient coastal city of Essaouira, making it great for visitors seeking a break from Morocco’s vibrant souks and city life. But for those who do want to explore Essaouira’s many charms, a complimentary shuttle bus is available to transport guests to and from the entrance to the medina.
For travellers seeking a luxurious break in the sun, surrounded by exquisite coastal scenery and an abundance of indulgent amenities, Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa is an ideal choice.
