MARRAKECH TRAVEL DIARY

http://www.whitneyswonderland.com/2014/08/marrakech-morocco-photo-diary.html

My trip to Morocco was the most relaxing, cultural, and beautiful experience…

We stayed at the Sirayane Boutique Hotel & Spa, whose staff treated us so well!  At the Spa I had the Hammam for the first time ever, which at the beginning came as a shock and then I actually enjoyed it! (Basically you’re naked in a sauna with a girl covering your body with black soap and then scrubbing you in a quite hard/painful manner… But so worth it when you feel your glowy, smooth skin afterwards!).  I also had a wonderful massage and facial which left my skin so clean and soft!!  Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!!
When in Marrakech, you must go to the Medina for a few hours and wander around the market, get to see how Argan Oil was traditionally made.  It’s worth getting a guide as the Medina is quite a labyrinth!  Have the best orange juice in the world, play with snakes, and get a henna tattoo!
Thanks to your Instagram suggestions (you can follow me here), I tried the Pastilla/ Bastille which was, together with the lamb tagine and couscous, my very favourite!!  The best place for pastilla, and also best environment, with live music and a gifted woman singing the most passionate Arabic tunes, was La Maison Arabe.  It’s worth going also to enjoy the beautiful decoration and a very romantic dinner!  My favourite restaurant food-wise was Le Jardin,  have the couscous and tagine!

So I hope you can feel the heat through the screen and thorougly enjoy these pics…  Play some Arabian music and sip a Pinna Colada (or some coconut water!) 😉

And thank you so much for visiting my blog, commenting, and staying tuned, you’re the best!!  Love you xxx

Mi viaje a Marruecos fue la experiencia mas relajante, cultural y bella…
Nos hospedamos en el Sirayane Boutique Hotel & Spa, que nos trato de la mejor manera!  En el Spa probé por primera vez el Hammam, el cual al principio fue un shock pero una vez pasado, lo disfrute muchísimo! (Básicamente estas desnuda en un sauna con una chica cubriendo tu cuerpo en jabón negro y luego exfoliandote la piel de una manera algo fuerte/dolorosa… Pero vale tanto la pena cuando ves tu piel brillante y sedosa!).  También tuve un masaje relajante y un facial que me dejaron la piel súper limpia y suave!!  Gracias por hacer nuestra estadía tan maravillosa!!

Cuando estas en Marruecos, tenes que ir a la Medina por algunas horas ya ndar por el mercado.  Mira como se hacia el aceite argan tradicional.  Vale la pena tener un guía ya que la Medina puede parecer un laberinto!  Proba el mejor jugo de naranja del mundo, jugá con serpientes, y hacete un tatuaje de henna!

Gracias a tus sugerencias en Instagram (podes seguirme aqui), probé la Pastilla/ Bastille, la cual fue, junto con el tangine de cordero y el couscous, mi favorita!!  El mejor lugar para pastilla, y tambien el mejor ambiente, con música en vivo y una mujer con una voz espectacular cantando las canciones árabes mas apasionadas, es La Maison Arabe.  Vale la pena ir no solo por la comida y ambiente, sino también para disfrutar de la decoración y una cena muy romántica!  Mi restaurante favorito en cuanto a comida es Le Jardin,  proba el couscous y el tagine!

Asi que espero podas sentir el calor a traves de la pantalla y disfrutes de estas fotos…  Pone música Árabe y tomate una Pinna Colada (o agua de coco!) 😉

Y mil gracias por visitar mi blog, comentarlo, y apreciar lo que hago, me siento sumamente agradecida por ello!!  Los adoro xxx

    Loved reading your recap! I'm headed to Marrakech for the first time in Sept. Thanks for all the pointers! Did you have any trouble with the food/drinks? I've heard some horror stories about people getting sick!

    PS: Your photos are fab!

    That's amazing, so glad I helped!! I was actually absolutely fine, but I stuck to eating at my hotel (Sirayane) and restaurant recommendations (the ones I mentioned), so nothing from the street! You'll be completely fine like this, and I actually liked the food very much!! 🙂
