New Hotel & Spa Opens in Morocco

Big news from Northern Africa: Sofitel has opened the Sofitel Agadir Thalassa Sea and Spa on Morocco’s Agadir Bay. The brand’s second hotel on the Bay has 125 rooms and 49 suites (including 37 Prestige Suites, 10 Junior Suites, and two Opera Suites) with views over Kasbah ruins.
 
Situated on the water’s edge, the thalasso therapy institute offers guests a nice range of services, including consultations with a professional naturopath, who uses natural therapies to boost the body’s vital energy, and personal training sessions available both indoors and on the beach. Additionally, guests can try Moroccan-inspired treatments that combine the benefits of sea and land using natural products such as Argan Oil, Barbary Fig, Orange Blossom Water, Rosewater, and Honey. These offerings are available in any of the spa’s 16 beach- or garden-facing treatment rooms.
 
In addition to the available spa services, the facility also offers open aqua-fitness and aqua-bike sessions and step aerobic workouts. Guests can also take advantage of the seawater course (heated to 90°F) or swim against the current at the current pool.

What's more? Hotel guests have their choice three restaurants: A gastronomic restaurant, Le Palais du Jardin builds its menu in collaboration with a naturopath and dietician and uses food grown on site or picked from local farms. Le Market faces the ocean, overlooking the garden and the pool. The poolside restaurant, l’Atlantique, offers guests a casual dining experience.

The hotel is located at Baie des Palmiers Cité Founty P5 Secteur touristique in Agadir. Visit www.sofitel.com for more information.
