I have a new love & her name is Marrakech.
Exotic, Beautiful, Sexy & Exciting!
On a recent trip to Morocco we had plans to visit many cities throughout the country, but after landing at the new Delano Hotel in Marrakech, we couldn't pry ourselves away from this amazing city...and the Delano was the perfect place to call home during our stay!

The Morgans Hotel Group recently opened this jewel of a boutique hotel, and we were excited to be the first Americans to stay at the property. Lush purple decor accented by arabesque design and amazing Moroccan Modern Art made the Delano feel more like a contemporary gallery than a hotel.

The decor was stunning and so were the Suites! Our well appointed room was the perfect oasis from the city with plenty of room to relax and unwind.

We took full advantage of the amenities during our stay. The Pearl Spa was exquisite and the Hammam treatments and spa manicure/pedicures were some of the highlights of our trip. The 3 pools on the property (1 cold pool in spa, 1 ground level lap pool, and rooftop circular pool) were all well appointed, and we took a dip in each and every one.
Since the hotel had just opened we didn't get a chance to check out the soon to come nightclub, but we did dine in the hotel and all of the food we had was delicious. Our favorite however was the Namakaze Sushi and Rooftop Lounge where we ended several of our evenings with stunning views of the city and great friends.
I'd be remiss without mentioning the exceptional service we received during our stay. The staff at the hotel were all so friendly and helpful. The concierge Mehdi provided us with exceptional tips for touring the city and arranged for most of our evening excursions. He literally made our stay feel more like visiting a friend and I know the trip would not have been the same without his insight and service.

I can't wait for my next visit to Marrakech and another stay at the Delano Hotel!
