A myriad of options from Raffles Taghazout

Traditional Moroccan architectural style and sophisticated contemporary design will merge seamlessly at the new Raffles Taghazout.   The resort,  just 40 minutes from Agadir International Airport,  will reflect the rich culture, heritage and artistry of Morocco as well as the ambience of cultured luxury that distinguishes Raffles hotels and resorts around the globe. Superbly located on the pristine Atlantic coast with sweeping beachfront views of the azure waters, the resort will open in 2010 and will feature about 165 luxuriously appointed guest room villas as well as 60 Raffles Residences for private ownership. Be it leisurely enjoyment or sporting pursuits, residents at Raffles Taghazout will enjoy a myriad of options. For those seeking a pampered spa experience, Raffles Amrita Spa, a signature component of all Raffles hotels and resorts, will provide a sanctuary of tranquillity and privacy. The resort also offers a diverse range of dining options, shopping at a traditional souk, tennis courts, a fitness centre and pool, as well as beach club access. And golf enthusiasts can look forward to playing 18 holes on a course designed by award-winning golf course architect David Kidd.

  1. You know, I always forget about Morocco. Clients ask for suggestions on places to go, and I -never- remember Morocco. I don’t know why it’s not on my radar, but perhaps it should be.

  2. Morocco is getting alot of new development! For anyone interested, a thread on Flyertalk mentions that the Fairmont NFAF (Friends and Family) promo they currently have going on also includes Raffles hotels (owned by Fairmont). There are some GREAT rates using this promo.

  3. I’ve not yet been to Morocco. If the new Raffles there is anything like the one in Singapore, visitors are likely to have a wonderful experience.

    But part of the attraction of Raffles in Singapore is its history. I highly recommend a visit to the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling or two. You can sit sipping your drinks and soak up the history of the place. Great stuff!

    They also have a shop where you can buy Raffles branded products. My husband bought a hat there, which has survived several years of being squashed in suitcases and is still almost as good as new. (Good quality!)

  4. morocco again how many more new resorts and hotels will open up there – must have one of the best choices available!
