The Redspa team were lucky enough to have a weekend in Marrakech for our Christmas party this year. Flying out on Saturday 5th December for a nights stay in this beautiful, crazy city, we soon arrived at our accommodation, a beautiful traditional Morrocan riad in the centre of the Medina. Rooms surrounded a courtyard in the centre of the building that also included a dipping pool. The riad had it's own roof terrace, where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch cooked by the riad staff and relaxed with a cup of mint tea enjoying the sunshine.
Our first outing was a walking tour of the Medina, exploring the many souks and wandering around the famous Jemaa el-Fnaa market square in the centre of the city. That evening we headed to a nearby restaurant for a delicious meal sampling some traditional Morrocan cuisine, followed by some mojitos at a bar in the city centre.
The following morning we toured the city by horse and carriage, venturing out of the Medina walls to explore the Yves Saint Laurent gardens, Saadian Tombs and the Bahia Palace. Lunch overlooking the Jemaa el-Fnaa square followed by some shopping in the famous souks concluded our trip. It was fantastic!
