The Morocco Miracle

Morocco is an exciting holiday destination as well as an upcoming golf destination, which offers an amazing selection of high quality hotels and golf courses at an affordable cost to the alternative European based destinations.

As well as a fantastic selection of first class resorts, such as Sahara Palace and highly ranked golf courses; Morocco is home to a great selection of incredible sights. From the historical landmarks and stunning architecture, to the vibrant kasbahs and colorful markets offering interesting and delicious things to see and experience, Morocco really has something for everyone.

Blessed with year round sunshine and glorious summers, golf holidays in Morocco promise to provide a sunny break, within a 4 hour flight time from most European destinations.

The Sahara Palace is located just outside of Marrakech on route to Casablanca and a short drive from Marrakech airport, less than 10km away. It is nestled in the luxurious and exclusive Palmeraie region of Marrakech; the hotel offers breath-taking views of the prominent snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Opulent and majestic, the Palace unfolds, unveiling all the splendors of Moorish, Indian and Venetian design. The Sahara Palace is set on 55 hectares of beautifully landscaped gardens, surrounded by tranquil palm trees and olive groves.

Already famed for its opulence in the second Sex in the City film, the hotel’s décor is a fantastic combination of differing styles with gold leaf, domed ceilings, jewels, chandeliers and elegant furnishings throughout and, inspired by a variety of traditional Oriental, Indian and Ottoman styles, the guest rooms and suites are wonderfully lavish: all featuring large balconies and double day beds.

This palatial desert oasis features 161 well-appointed, spacious guest rooms, including 25 luxurious suites, spread between the magnificent main Palace and four exclusive Riads. All rooms and suites enjoy stunning views over the Atlas Mountains, the Palmeraie desert landscape or the calming pool and gardens.

There are three restaurants onsite and are well known for showcasing the finest ingredients that span the Moroccan, Mediterranean, Indian and Pan-Asian, in one unique destination.
As well as indoor and outdoor pools, the Sahara Palace has an opulent 14 room spa including rooms for couples.
For those who enjoy the late night, night life, there is a club on site where you can dance until the early hours of the morning. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service to the centre of Marrakech, a 30-minute drive away or why not partake in a game of golf on the many neighbouring golf courses.

The close by, Palmeraie Golf Palace is an excellent 18-hole golf course Par 72. It comprises 7 lakes, thousands of palm trees and countless challenging sand hazards. Robert Trent Jones designed this course by reflecting the typical American Golf style into the Moroccan soil, and this fusion, is what gives this course an exceptional charm.
