A dreamy trip in Essaouira
Renowned in Antiquity for its purple dye, in the 14th century Essaouira became a Portuguese trading post protected by ramparts and was known as Mogdura, meaning “well-guarded”, or Mogador by the Europeans. Spices, gold and sugar cane were among the many riches traded here. In the 18th century, a French architect and disciple of Vauban designed its port and Kasbah, hence the name Essaouira, meaning “beautifully designed”. Now a popular cultural destination and a kitesurfers’ paradise, the town is enjoying a tourist boom.
With the construction of the Sofitel Luxury Mogador by Bouygues Bâtiment International, the town has acquired a luxury complex of 145 rooms and 30 villas spread over 11 hectares, including a club-house, children’s club, disco, spa, fitness centre, golf course and more. All the villas, with a floor area of 136 m² each, have their own swimming pool, terrace, private garden… Just about everything you could possibly need for a dream holiday.
In the luxury hotel category in Morocco, BYMARO also built the Royal Mansour. Located in Marrakech, this 5-star hotel is one of the most prestigious luxury hotels in the world.
Made up of 53 independent riads, its meticulous and quintessentially Moroccan decor is the work of the finest craftsmen.
